Is using animals in medical research necessary? Some people would say yes, others would say no... but who 's right? No matter what one thinks or believes this question still remains, yet to be answered. At first this question seems like its answer lies within ones opinion and only that, but if you look closer there is a lot more to it than opinion. Feeling sorry for the animals is definitely where it starts for people who don 't agree with animal testing; but that 's not where it ends.

Scientists and medical researchers say that animal testing is the future to finding cures. They also believe it is cruel to use animals to test our products on but there are no other options. Using animals for testing helps them figure out what will work and not work on humans. Using animals can help find cures faster and help prevent more human deaths.

Although some people believe that 's true, I have a different opinion. While reading articles from different doctors, I discovered that using animals in the medical area hasn 't helped humans near what people think it has. Just because animals are living breathing creatures like us, doesn 't mean their systems are anything like ours. In fact, they 're not anything like ours. There has been testing after testing done on animals to help find cures and medicine that will work on humans. After all that... what do we have to show for it? A puzzle with missing pieces that we are not going to find... not this way.
