Without the scientific testing of animals, many medical developments that we know now would never have been discovered. Cures and treatments have been developed that save human lives. Treatments for diabetes, cancer, and etc. would not have been available if it were not for animal testing. Animal testing isn’t just for discovering new things about the human body but to help us all as a whole. Think of how many things could have needlessly hurt and killed humans if they had not done animal testing first? Might I even add that many things that have been discovered through animal testing also benefit other animals, not just humans?
A good number of testing is just behavioral studies where they just try to get the animal to do a simple task and reward them with an incentive. However, when they do conduct animal experimentation, it is overseen by institutional review boards to ensure that they are not being wrong and that their best interest is in mind. Often after experimentation, animals are placed in new homes where they are taken care of and treated very well. So from my point of view it seems like it is only a win-win situation seeing as we both benefit from the cause.
Animals should be used for scientific research simply because of all the information we have gained from it in the past. Yes, it is true some animals do die from testing but would you rather an animal die or a human? Until there is a new solution those are our only two options. Much of medical research has been derived from experiments
