Imagine being separated from your family at birth, thrown into a cage, fed badly, forgotten about, unloved, and tortured through some of the most terrifying and worst pain? This is the daily life of a test animal. It is horrible, torturous, and unfair. Animal testing should be forbidden in every country. It is a completely pointless thing to do, and creates many negative effects on both animals and people.

The main reason why we animal test is for cosmetic research, not medical research, which is the only type that can be half accepted.

Joaquin Phoenix once said, “It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal.” We will not see any negative effects on humans if we start treating animals with the respect and freedom they deserve. It is a factor that is bringing our planet down, and we need to stand up for it, and we could save millions of lives a
