Extracts from this document...


ANIMAL RIGHTS Some people believe that keeping animals in laboratories maybe justified when, for example, experiments on them stop suffering or disease in humans. However, I believe that animal testing is a cruel and inhumane way of discovering new medicines. I believe that there are quicker, more efficient ways of finding cures for humans, and that animal experimentation should be banned.

I think that animal testing should only be used in extreme cases and that there is someone in the legal trade watching all aspects of the procedure. Anyone caught breaking the law should be severely dealt with and fined. ...read more.
