“The time will come when man such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.”~Leonardo Da Vinci

Animal testing a heartless display of inhumane humans all around the world. The money and the use of animal testing mostly goes towards cosmetic use which is a trivial reason. There are alternative reasons as well making animal cruelty even more pointless. Along with alternatives, animals have no voicel. They can’t stand up for themselves making the malice even worse. Animal testing is used for multiple reasons. Most of these reasons make no sense and have no relevantness to what the scientists are researching.

For human purposes, animal testing seems unreasonable and abusive because animals become blind, injured, and most often dead. These creatures can 't stand up, say or do anything to keep themselves safe from harm. There are many uses and much history to animal testing.

With alternatives and other resources, why is animal testing still used?

While people use everyday things that animals die for, there is an alternative for the killings making the use of animal testing irrelevant.

Alone in the US there are about 20 million animals used for teaching purposes (Animals Used). That’s more than the population of Florida. “Roughly half of them are killed and used for classroom dissection; others are tormented while they’re still still alive in classroom biology and psychology experiments and act apart in medical training drills.” (Animals used).
