Recently, I've been visiting ConsumerFreedom.com and I've been... enlightened, I guess. I am very against People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals now, so I guess their site is very convincing. This was only, what, one or two weeks ago that I first came to this site? And already, I went from being for PETA and knowing nothing about it to hating PETA and knowing a little more of the huge amount of information that is still left to be read. I've all of a sudden become very.... passionate about it. And it's weird.
But anywayz (back to the casual talk, loves), my cousin and I just got into a debate when I read to her this quote:
And she said she understood. And I was stunned. D, my cousin, isn't the kind of person who usually sticks up for the animal rights activists side so I was... shocked that she wasn't shocked. I even translated into French for my cousin, L, to be able to read easily and she had a steady reaction. But D stood by her word and we started to debate it.
She said she thought it was wrong to use animals to test cures for AIDS and I said that it was only lab mice and rats. She thinks that they have to inject AIDS into the mice and I said that it's impossible to give AIDS to a mice. I mean it is a human sexually transmitted disease; how could it be given to a mouse? But I can't really stand by that point, now can I? So I came to you guys!
My question is, "How do scientists test lab mice for AIDS cures among others?"
And another question is, "Do they normally test on other animals besides rodents?"
Love you guys if you've got a straight answer to this. And a link to a site supporting what you have to say (preferrably not too biased) is sorta, kinda needed. D won't believe me otherwise.
Hey, is this considered ranting?
