Change/alter their focus to an alternative to animal testing education

Animal testing has been around for many decades now and it is an inhumane tradition that we place upon animals. With scientist forming many new and fully proven Non-Animal testing alternatives, they should use these new testings more often then not and should educate them to students at universities.

Stanford University is standing high in the science field today and they should change their focus from violent Animal testing to a faster and more accurate Non-Animal testing education. They should train their students with the new and modern form of testing, which doesn't involve the cruelty towards animals. They should allow for students to have the choice to be educated in non-animal testing alternatives which is used in many labratories today. It is the choice and right of the people to speak out against this cruel act we call Animal testing Science.

      “Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are like us.’ Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are not like us.’ Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.”
      — Professor Charles R. Magel

      In Europe, the ban on cosmetic animal testing, has given scientists a better understanding of non-animal testing. They have created an alternative that uses cells that are human in origin to deliver an outcome that is faster and more accurate than animal testing. Universities should implement this type of testing into their schools to allow for further education in the non-animal testing field.

      WHY DOES MAN FEEL THE SICK NEED TO NEGLECT, ABUSE, TORTURE AND MURDER ALL OF OUR EARTHS ANIMALS ? PLEASE STOP THIS NOW. PLEASE PUT HUMANITY BACK IN HUMAN, PLEASE HAVE A SOUL. THOSE WHO INFLICT AND ALLOW SUCH MISERY AND PAIN MUST ENJOY IT.

      You can either turn sorrowfully or carelessly away from an animal in distress or summon the courage to run forward and help.

      We can judge the heart of a person by their treatment of animals. (Ghandi)

      "We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living beings, humanity will not find peace." - Albert Schweitzer

      I am sure that you Professors and Students have the understanding that the Animal DNA is not the same as Human DNA!

      By Injecting deadly bacteria and cutting up animals will not cure anyone!!!

      Animals are just like people. They want to live and be loved. Please stop animal testing. We are in a time period where we can test on things that aren't animals.
