Animal testing is very inhumane, abusive and unnecessary. It goes over the edge with 115 million deaths of animals every year, so it should be stopped. Even though you can't see this cruel crime, it is done every day. Animals are having chemicals pumped into their stomachs, their muscle tissues hacked off their thighs, and are being put into isolation chambers as babies far from their mothers.

Not only are the animals dying and being horribly abused, we are paying for this horrible crime to be done. The government takes your tax money and uses some of it to pay for animal testing. And it's not just the government -- you might be too, by buying a product that was tested on animals. Everything you buy, like shampoo, body wash or makeup, might have been tested on an animal in a laboratory. This is why you should read the labels or do some research on the products you purchase. The profit from the companies gives the companies more opportunities to torture more animals.

This summer, scientists and others committed to stopping animal testing, are going to try the advancement of animal alternatives, If you truly care, just like me and many others, please help stop animal testing by not buying products that were tested on animals. You won't regret it and neither will the animals.
