This Is Not What The Doctor Ordered!

Tags: animal testing, video

During World Week for Animals in Laboratories, there are loads of things you can do to help end cruel animal testing for products like cosmetics and skincare. And wouldn't it be great to put an end to burning and poisoning animals just for the sake of a new deoderant or toilet cleaner?

But sadly, cruelty to animals in labs doesn't stop there. Did you know that millions of cats, dogs, mice, rats and monkeys suffer and die for the sake of medical research too? Check this out:

Like the video says, using animals in medical research is unpredictable, unreliable and unnecessary. And this quote really resonates with me -
"Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories and are called medical research" - George Bernard Shaw

I love organisations like Humane Research Australia and Dr Hadwen Trust in the UK, who work tirelessly to raise awareness and show that this cruelty is unnecessary. They promote and develop alternatives and show huge achievements in medical science in the name of humane research (that is, research that doesn't involve animals at all!)

Will you join me this week in honouring all animals confined in cruel labs and raise as much awareness for them as we can? Share this vid on Facebook to let people know about humane research.

After all, we have a voice. Animals suffering in labs don't.

It breaks my heart thinking about all those poor animals locked away in cages and slowly tortured on a daily basis. People should be made aware of what animals go through for our vanity. Very sad indeed  sad

Why do we continue to abuse animals - just stop the testing on them.  Surely the people who do this, must know what each product can do without using animals to test on.

animals should not be treated this way. it is not somebodys 'choice' or 'belief' to not eat animals, it is wrong. We do not get to torture, mame, and kill innocent sentient beings

I agree with Lucinda & Miranda-woops.
We need to stop animal testing, period.
There is no logic behind it; most testing is done to see if we humans have any side effects, so why test on the animals? Completely no need.
Same with meat; we don't need it so let the precious animals keep what is theirs.

Need to keep this going as I am aware that a lot of the general public are still unaware that a lot of research is still carried out on animals.  This needs to stop...........

sad The world shouldn't be like this. Animals should be able to live their lives just as we are entitled to.

animal experiements and animal cruelty is all wrong, we need to change our habits, and our eating, and our needs/wants. because its a horrific thing to know its painfully hurting animals to die slowly for our pleasures.. they were not put on earth for us to do evil things to... we need to educate others on these experiements to animals... lets all do something everyday to tell at least one person about them... xo

I really wanted to put in some very specific comments here, but it will not accept the long version so here is the short:
Animal research isn't effective for some areas (a major area included being drug testing) because it produces spurious results. However, it is effective and accurate for others.
Also, at least one of the quotes is decontextualised (it is actually from a group who state that animals can be used effectively in comparative and basic research).
Contrary to popular belief, in no small part peddled by 'anti-vivisectionists', animal research *does* provide useful information into how some bodily and behavioural systems do work, and these can (at times) generalise to humans.
Let me be clear, this video made me very upset because it is visually horrifying, but unfortunately visually horrifying doesn't provide any real support for a position.
