Hey jp - have you ever looked in to where aspirin comes from? And by the way, no animal has to die or be maimed to test anything anymore since there are far more technologically advanced methods that actually give a better result. Oh and jp, have you ever heard of thalidomide? Animal tested, FDA approved, but kills and maims babies.

I am pretty sure if we all could see the operations of the facility we all would feel pretty ill, if we have any empathy for animals at all and understanding of their basic mental and emotional as well as physical needs. They basically respond to fear and imprisonment the same way we would, with stress...We often don't really know what goes on in testing labs and even slaughter houses. We rely on animals for food and even medicine but should be able to have it all be more transparent so we can make improvements in how we treat them.

Got a question for the animal watchdog group. Every take an aspirin or any other drug to cure or save your sorry butt?

ARE THERE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS TAKING CARE OF THESE ANIMALS? I sure hope not. To leave an animal in a cage while it's being washed is stupid in itself. They don't have a bunch of illegal aliens running cleanup do they?
