I'm unsure where I stand on animal testing for medicine, but I certainly don't agree with it for commercial purposes.

The government promised to end animal testing for household products and reduce the use of animals in research. But despite this, last year saw an increase in animal trials.

I think a lot of people are OK with animal testing for medical purposes if it can save people's lives. But even so I hope the government will stick to its pledge and save thousands of animals.
