YES! Animal experimentation should be illegal.

Animals have a heart and a mind just like people do. They are capable of feeling love and pain, happiness and sorrow. But, because they are not able to speak to us and tell us how they feel many people forget that they are capable of having these feelings. That is why they are often hurt or neglected. And most of the experiments, are not effective on humans like they are on animals, for example: chocolate is highly poisionos to dogs, but we don't die when we eat chocolate.

What do you gain with animal experimentation?

You find out if something is safe or not and you find out the effectiveness of something. But animal experimentation is not fool proof and sometimes all the hard work of testing is usless.
