Winning Issue » VIVISECTION


Vivisection is the act of performing surgical experiments on living animals. Proponents of vivisection justify the taking of animal lives as necessary to saving human life. Vivisection opponents say all animal life should be protected and that only a society that respects and protects the lives of animals will do the same for its citizens. Many animal welfare advocates believe this type of experimentation is extremely cruel and not beneficial for human research, claiming these efforts and resources could be better spent. They say years of research have shown that imposing disease symptoms in an animal during an artificially controlled laboratory experiment cannot adequately predict or duplicate human disease. They believe basic physiological, metabolic and chemical differences among human and nonhuman animals often produce conflicting results, and that vivisection is no better at predicting experimental results than flipping a coin.
