I don't eat animals, but I do see the importance of animal testing for medical research.

The European Commission was under pressure from animal rights groups to make animal testing illegal for medical research. But it has decided that many scientific and medical advances would cease without it.

I wish we lived in a more advanced world where we could use computers to simulate experiments instead of perform them on animals. The European Commission shares this vision, but for now animals are the best way to ensure some medicines work.
