The term vivissection can refer to any experimentation on animals, including non-invasive psychology research, product testing or dissection, even for medical or educational purposes. There is now a growing number of people, including scientists, who would like to see the abolition of such practices, though many more still maintain that vivissection is a vital part of medical research and education. The Medical Community generally agree that animals are vital in all stages of biomedical research, not just safety testing. The purpose of biomedical research and testing is to understand the living body and what goes wrong to cause disease. This needs to be done in order to develop new and effective ways of preventing and curing disease. New medicines developed in this way not only benefit humans, but also animals, as new veterinary drugs and methods are also tested in order to assess their worth and effectiveness. However, animal rights activists and other anti -vivissection organisations maintain that despite these limited benefits to the animals, vivissection is flawed on both scientific and ethical grounds. Scientifically vivissection is flawed as animals are both biologically and physically different from humans. ...read more.

It shows that most believe that it is a necessary and humane practice that will play a key role in developing future treatments. However, animal rights activists and other anti-vivissection organisations argue that there are other effective ways of doing medical research. For example, studies in the test-tube have many advantages over animal-related experimentation, as they provide results more rapidly and are more easily controlled. Also, cellular and molecular levels of the life process provide more useful information about the effects of chemicals and drugs. Another line of argument against vivissection is that animal experimentation can have some very tragic consequences if the medical results acquired from vivissection actually have a totally different effect than expected when applied to people. Even when the the species being used is very similar to us, the results can be very different. For example, chimpanzees have up to ninety-nine percent of the same genetic material as we do, yet they are not susceptible to many of the diseases that afflict humans, nor do they have the same reaction to drugs and procedures. Drugs that are not harmful to a chimpanzee could potentially do great damage to, or even kill, a human. Animal research is also used in cosmetic testing. ...read more.
