I want to join in on the Run for Women and I emailed (because they don't have a freaking phone number) about animal testing, but will they lie? can they lie?


Do you participate in runs that donate to animal testing charities (such an oxymoron).

Ok I get your point. Had to reread it and think.

Any run to cure any disease supports medical research. There isn't a treatment in existence that hasn't been developed using animal testing. Even in vitro studies, which some AR activists seem to push for, involve sacrificing animals. Everyone's got to draw their own line, but never lose touch with the reality that all medical testing involves animals to a greater or lesser degree. You just have to decide whether or not you're ok with it.

And I don't think it's an oxymoron for charities to support "animal testing" as you put it. They're out there to cure whatever disease they stand against, and this is the only way to do it. Anyone who thinks otherwise is out of touch with how research is actually done.
