Kill them..for the sake of science
In London, more than 500 British scientists and doctors gave their consent for animal testing. The declaration was presented by the Research Defense Society (RDS) after a farm targeted by activists said it would stop breeding guinea pigs for medical research.

Signatories included three Nobel laureates, 190 Fellows of the Royal Society and the Medical Royal Colleges, and more than 250 academic professors.

Animal research is a highly emotive topic in Britain, which is home to a vocal and at times violent animal rights lobby.

More on
this.....

I dont understand what the whole fuss is about for I can see a very simple solution to all this chaos. The RDS should invest money in India for all their research testing work. Here many people/corporates even some state governments would gladly invest in farms for animal breeding on whom the test will be carried out on.

Forget just guinea pigs, they can also have cows, monkeys, donkeys, basically any animal they choose. If more money is pumped in this industry then they will be provided with live human beings, which i am sure would be best for any research work.

Here they would not have to worry about the government procedures/rules cause Indian ministers and officials can be easily bought with money and/or made part of the shares holding group once this industry gets listed on the Indian Stock Exchange market.

As for the Indian Animal Rights Groups, well they are mostly busy running around movie stars and other celebrities over animal issues that they wont have time for such petty issues. And even if any of the group did protest, it should not make much difference cause Justice courts in India take their own sweet time to pass any judgment, for example the Miland Soman/Madhu Sapre Ad case (mis-handling of some rare species of Snake) is still collecting dust in the state court.

All in all I think its a win win situation for the everyone, i. e. British Scientist, British Animal Rights Group and India. Even the animals in this case, cause they will be sacrificing their lives for betterment of the Human Society.

So I say, 'Go Ahead and kill them for the sake of Science'.

(Pls note the above remarks are meant to be sarcastic. And be assured that I am a 100% animal lover and would cause no harm to them, knowingly or unknowingly.)

  1. As much as I get your sarcasm...a lot of pioneering advances in medicine have been made by inventions first tested on animals.

    This is not a frivolous issue. A lot of these same discoveries could not have been tested and tried if not for animal testing.

    Imagine a scenario, where a drug is invented, that could save the life of a dying friend or a relative. But the drug needs to be first tested.

    Would you rather test it on a human being or an animal.

    Or would you not test it at all, and dash all hopes of saving the loved one.

    This is not a black/white question. This is one which falls in the realm of gray.

    I dont have a solution to the problem. But the solution is not what you make it out to be too..

  3. I completely agree with you.

    What i wanted to convey from the post was different to what you took it as.

    What i meant was that...in India people get away with murder in practicality...so whats killing of animals !!

    In Western countries...thats not the case. Mostly animal testings are conducted on Rats and Guinea Pigs which is also objected upon.

    In India...there is no value for human life...so animals here stand no chance.

    For example : High number of cow deaths during the recent floods...were mainly because of recklessness on the part of cow shed owners.
