Should Animals Be Used in Medical Research?

A topic that has been debated for many years is about animals being used in research. I have been an animal lover ever since I was born and for many years, I wanted to be a Veterinarian because I hated the idea of a hurt or sick animal. I took a biomedical technology class my freshman year and we learned about animal research. We read articles and watched documentaries of this process and it hurt my heart so bad to watch what they were going through. While there are people like me who believe animal research is unethical, there are many that would argue that animal testing is the only way to find out if a certain medicine works without putting the lives of a person at stake. I will concentrate mainly on the affects medical research can leave on animals. I have access to many articles and much information on the internet that address animal medical research.
