This is something I feel strongly about. Medical research is at the cornerstone of our progress and development as a society. Throughout history many millions have died from diseases we can now cure thanks to medicine developed using animal research. However, some people are against the use of animals in laboratories and carry out sometimes violent, intimidating and illegal attacks to try and impose their will on others.
If you believe, like I do, that we should stand up to those who attempt to bully and coerce us into stopping this kind of research – then please sign this petition. If you’re undecided about the use of animals in medical research, consider:
- We are not talking about research into cosmetics or beauty products. Licences in this country are only granted to important medical and scientific research projects.
- Abuse can and will occur with animal testing, as with any other field. But this should not be a reason to discontinue it.
- If you eat meat, ask yourself why you don’t object to animals being killed (strictly unnecessarily) for food but not for life-saving medicines.
- If you are a vegetarian or vegan, consider if this is a personal choice or something you would impose on everyone if you had the chance. Would you ban the eating of meat? Should we therefore ban animal testing?
Think about it. If you agree, please sign up. At the time of writing, you will be joining about six and a half thousand others who agree with you.
I wholeheartedly agree with your blog there Dom. Research is so important, and for me the life of a human being should always take priority.
For to long Animal Rights protestors have shown they are willing to murder, maime and intimidate human beings who’s lives they don’t regard, in the name of being kind to animals. They have their priorities so very very wrong.
Yep dom i agree also
