Testing on animals is misleading and does not prove safety in people. People have died or been harmed by things that were tested as safe in some other animal. Human cell cultures are much more accurate and give faster results at less cost. You cannot be in favor of animal welfare and approve of testing on animals because it causes extreme suffering to animals in many cases. I became a vegetarian because of cruelty and if slaughter is cruel then you cannot claim to care about animal welfare if you support cruelty. All cruelty to animals for whatever excuse is against the welfare of the animal. I support animal welfare and human animal welfare which means I am also against human slaughter like blowing people up and shooting them down,etc(war & crime). I am also against hunting unless it is done by professional marksman who can kill without ever causing any suffering and only if necessary to save animals from suffering. Scientifically speaking the human animal is most closely related to chimpanzees,gorillas,and orangutans. People are animals.
