I have nothing against hugging trees or loving animals. I love nature and will always try to do what I can to protect it. Animals? Oh, yes...I love animals! If you've ever read this blog, you know all the animals I've had in the past and what I have now.
This friend of mine sent me an email asking if they use animals for MS research. I told her I have no idea, never read anything about it. A couple hours later, I get a forwarded message from her. It's a statement from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society explaining that yes, they do use animals for research, but tells why and how, etc.
I sent her a reply that, eventhough I don't agree with animal testing for stupid things like makeup or shampoos, medical research is different and is a necessary thing. If ti weren't for animal testing, I cannot imagine the medicines that we WOULDN'T HAVE! I know that I would not have the medicine I take everyday to help keep my MS manageable.
My friend will not sponsor me.
I sincerely hope that she never gets cancer, MS or any of the thousands of diseases that are out there, because you know what? She'd die from it. She is so ignorant that if (and when) she found out any medications for her problem were tested on bunnies, pigs, frogs or monkeys, she'd refuse to take it.
To me it only shows her ignorance and stupidity.
