Kite, Sarah, and Andrew Blake. "Animal Experiments." BBC . 17 Aug. 2004. Seriously Ill for Medical Research. 07 Mar. 2007 < ;. Kite and Blake are two people for opposite sides giving their arguments about medical animal testing. The article then sorts their points into a pros and cons format. Kite, who is against animal testing, brings up the fact that testing “can give misleading results, because an animals response to a drug may be different then that of a humans.” Blake responds with the fact that almost all countries require an experiment to be done on more then one species to further provide better evidence of a result. The article goes through the key points: Does animal testing work, Is testing on animals moral, and what are the alternatives. After reading this article I still feel that animal testing is still one of the best ways to test medicine, and medical theories. Although Kite brings up many good points like “animals have just as many rights as humans do,” Blake has a great response to every anti animal testing “fact” said. It made me wonder if animals have just as many rights as we do why don’t we test on human beings that have no homes? The answer is because that would actually be ethically and morally wrong. In the future I feel, as medical technology advances, we will not need the use of animals quite the way we do now.

It goes through everything from is testing on animals moral, to “But weren’t animals used to develop many of the important treatments that we use today, such as the polio vaccine?” The article provides video clips to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
