Charles R. Magel said? Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is, "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is, "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. Animals are living creatures that have feelings just like a human being. Animals are not like us on the physical part, but that doesn’t mean that we have the right to kill, hurt or even experiment with them.

Animal are even used to test products such as Shampoos, perfumes and cosmetics. Those products aren’t like the ones we use, they have different types of chemicals and they try them on the animals to see if it will affect us.

Animals are like us just and just like them, we would not want to be in a cage dying just to try something that might not even
