The Ten Biggest
Lies Vivisectors Tell
Vivisectors constantly lie. It is what they do best. After
all, their working lives are built on an entirely false premise: that animal
experiments will provide information of value to doctors.
Here are the
ten biggest lies vivisectors tell:
Lie No 1: Animal Experiments help
Truth: No animal experiment ever conducted has ever helped any
human patient. Not one human life has ever been saved by vivisection. No animal
experiment conducted in the future will help human patients. Proof of this is
available in my books. (No vivisector will debate the value of vivisection with
Lie No 2: Drug Companies are forced to perform animal
experiments by law.
Truth: They aren't. There are no laws forcing drug
companies to conduct animal experiments. Evidence for this is in my book
Animal Experiments: Simple Truths.
Lie No 3: Doctors support
Truth: They don't. The majority of doctors want
animal experiments stopped. The evidence for this (first published in the
European Medical Journal) is included in my books Why Animal
Experiments Must Stop and Animal Experiments: Simple Truths.
Lie No 4: Animals who are tortured and killed in animal experiments
Truth: The animals who are used in laboratory experiments
suffer enormously. Anyone who doubts this should study the evidence in my books.
Lie No 5: The number of experiments conducted is going
Truth: It isn't. The number of experiments on animals is going up.
Lie No 6: There is scientific evidence showing that animal
experiments are of value.
Truth: There is no scientific evidence showing
that animal experiments are of value. The Department of Health in London was
invited by the British House of Lords to submit a list of scientific papers
`proving' the value of animal experiments. The House of Lords then asked me to
comment on the papers which were submitted. I destroyed the validity of all the
submitted papers in my report. (You can read my report in full on this website.)
Lie No 7: Vivisectors claim that their experiments on animals enable
drug companies to produce drugs which are safe for human use.
an experiment shows that a drug does not cause problems when given to an animal
the drug company will claim that this proves that the drug is safe for people.
But if an experiment shows that a drug does cause problems when given to an
animal the drug company will ignore the results on the grounds that animals are
different to people. My book Betrayal of Trust contains a lengthy
analysis naming many drugs which are sold for human use despite the fact that
they cause serious problems (such as cancer) when given to animals. My book
Animal Experiments: Simple Truths contains a summary.
8: Vivisectors insist that some experiments on animals produce useful
Truth: Vivisectors admit that they don't know which experiments
could be of value and might be relevant and not misleading. If you do ten
experiments and five might be useful and five are utterly useless then ALL are
utterly useless because you don't know which five results are useable and which
five aren't. This is one of the major flaws of vivisection. Vivisectors either
aren't bright enough to understand this or else they choose to ignore the logic.
Lie No 9: Vivisectors claim that animals are not
Truth: There is ample evidence that this is a lie in my books
such as Animal Rights: Human Wrongs.
Lie No 10: Laboratory
animals are well looked after.
Truth: Animals in vivisection laboratories
are kept in tiny cages (the sizes of `approved' animal cages are given in my
book Animal Experiments:Simple Truths). Three quarters of all animal
experiments are performed without any anaesthetic.
Vivisection is a destructive pseudo-science. Animal experiments are performed by
psychopaths. The sole reason for vivisection is money. Anyone who supports
vivisection is a liar or a fool. Or both.
