Gershoff’ is surely right about animal testing being beneficial because, as he may not be aware, recent studies have shown that animal testing has opened so many opportunities and saved lives of millions. I agree that animal testing isn’t just where animals are being tortured, because my experience with research has showed that, in very rare cases animals are tortured, it’s very hard for a scientist to get funding for that type of experiment, as well as all the certificates they need to make it happen in the first place.

Although I agree with Gershoff up to a point, I...
