Background and context

This debate is more specific than the one that generally regards the testing of animals. It does not ask whether animal testing should generally be banned, even when animals are treated fairly. Rather, it specifically asks whether the infliction of pain, suffering, and harm on animals in laboratory tests should be banned. For animal rights activists, this is usually the first, most urgent, step toward their goals of improving animal welfare. And, while many argue for a ban on animal testing of all kinds, banning the infliction of pain is generally considered the first, most important step. Opponents argue that this eliminates key opportunities for the advancement of science, medicine, and human well-being, in which they argue that harming some animals is necessary.
