Banning Animal Testing Improve Our Modern World?
Animal testing should be demolished and completely banned from our world. Experimentation on animal is simply barbaric, immoral, and does not provide viable and trustworthy information.

Many of the babies suffered from phocomelia, a disease that does not allow their limbs to develop correctly. These tests don’t cure illness; they just kill poor animals for the sake of human convenience and cost. Will you might think animal testing is at least better then nothing, but there is so many alternative ways! For example: There is bio-engineering and...
