Well then, I just started a group you may be interested in. I'm trying to find mothers who oppose animal cruelty. Don't worry, I do not agree with PETA tactics and will not be encouraging them. My group is for women opposed to things like factory farming, dog fighting, euthanizing infant animals because they are "unwanted", animal testing, and all forms of animal cruelty. Here is a link...
Please come check it out, and help give a voice to the silent.

You do realize that animal testing is necessary and has been responsible for vaccines and medications that save the lives of our children and pets from illnesses that can kill them both? Until we find a better option, let us please not knock the only viable option we have.

Beachmamaof2: My research on this topic is extensive as I spent 2 years in animal research (Vet student) in NJ dealing with morons outside the main gate to the complex that protested because some bit of misinformation. It never ceases to amaze me as to the stupidity within the human race. One piece of twisted information can snowball into the biggest fallacy, inciting the general public. In a picture perfect world we would not have to resort to animal testing, however this is not our case. The below link helps to educate those who think they know what goes on within the parameters of animal research. With every situation, there is the potential for a misguided soul, medical research is no different. To be against some animal research and then to claim that research neccesitated for medical research is okay is hypocritical. It still involves to some extent, the animal suffering.
