Funches 1 Macharia Funches Professor Judkins English 106 12/15/2010 Animal Testing: Social Good or Not?

Either way, both you and your friend are being held in captivity and will have experiments conducted upon you against your will. Animal testing has been going on for several years and the imaginary situation that has been mentioned above is what actually occurs in many pharmaceutical testing complexes. Cosmetics, household cleaners, and other products that are used by consumers are frequently tested on animals.
