I don't think we should allwo most animal tests. Well, it should only be allowed if it REALLY WILL benefit health stuff. NOt some dumb commercial shampoo or something.

Yes I think it is ok in research for the good of mankind as long as no long term unnecessary suffering is endured by the animal.

I totally disagree with pharmaceutical companies using animals to test their products on for their own greedy benefit; I have seen the end result of chimpanzees from this type of testing.

I agree with this. I hate to see animal testing for pure commercial purpose.
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

I've heard of this one company who are using some kind of animal ( I think it is a rabbit ) to see how their product would affect a human's eye. WELL the poor animal doesn't even have tear ducts or something of that sort. In other words, their eyes are completely different than human eyes, therefore it is pointless to use those poor little creatures.
