  • Would you use drugs tested on animals if you get really sick ?

    Hello,

    So, I’ve been thinking about that for a while now, and I really don’t know what I would do. I just figured here would be the best place to share.
    I’m completely against animal testing. But I’ve been wondering what would be my reaction if I found out I’m sick. Not a little sick, a “might lead to death” sick, but, that could be easily cured by drugs that have been tested on animals. Would I take it, or would I try all the other natural options, with the risk of serious complications ?!
    It would be kind of hypocrite of me to take the drugs knowing that I’m against animal testing. But, in the same time, not taking the drugs is a really huge risk to take.
    Or the same situation but with a sickness that doesn’t kill you but for example, make you lose sight. Your life isn’t in danger but the complication is pretty huge.

    Does anyone else ever thought about that ?
    Have you come to a theoretical answer ? ( theoretical because of course, we never know what we would do facing the actual situation ).

    If u had too, yes :( Because you need to think of the bigger picture. If you die because you didnt take the medication tested on animals, you cant sign petitions go to protest etc. So super sadly my answer is yes. :'(

    umm think of it this way… you save yourself, and in turn, you live longer to help more animals. hope that helps.

    I completely understand where you’re coming from, especially since it’s hard to find affordable medicine that isn’t tested on animals. If it’s something little, like a cold, I let my body heal itself, or find a natural solution. (Such as tea). However, I whas recently hospitalized and in need of a surgery. A lot of their medical equipment was 3M (which tests on animals), and I’m almost certain their medicine was too. But if I wanted to go to any hospital other than Kaiser, I couldn’t afford it. So I personally will (and do) use animal tested medicines if I don’t have another choice.
