Who would you rather live?

I saw this billboard posted by one of my friends on Facebook. In this class the Animal Liberation Front painted a picture of animal researchers being evil. However the research they do saves millions of lives. Mice are frequently used because they share a lot of the same DNA as humans and are easy to reproduce cheaply and quickly. Yes it may be sad that animals have to die for science, but it allows us to make drugs to help people who have conditions like diabetes. It allows us to test the effects on the brain and to help in the search for a cure for cancer. If we aren't going to test on animals, then we will need to test these drugs by giving thousands of humans cancer. Good luck with that.
