This is a response to SST:
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 okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

Not sure if i'm too late but it makes a good read regardless, the first link shows both sides, the second is by law & ethics professor Gary Francione on the topic of animal rights
The first user i see has spewed hypothetical assumptions & made the assumption that those who oppose animal testing are all animal rights activists & are all peta activists calling for outright ban starting tomorrow.
92% of all drugs that pass animal tests fail in human clinical trials because animal models are such unsuitable model for predicting outcomes in humans.
These sites are a must visit for your essay. Europeans for Medical Progress also has a very informative short film you can watch online

Alternatives to using animals in research include epidemiological studies (studies of human populations), clinical research, in vitro (in a test tube) research, computer technologies such as simulators and imaging techniques, and replacing animals with human cells in safety tests.
Good luck with your essay.

Well get this, animals are not the same as humans. They aren't like us so I just don't get why some people think it's just the same as testing on a "lesser human".
They test people products on rats, thinking it will be the same as a human...

At this point, there is no way. Physiological beings are very complex and don't always react in the way we think they will. There is no other way, as of now, to test medications on anything else. Hopefully someday we will become smart enough to have the knowledge to produce pharmacological substances and know that they are safe for us without testing, but we're just not there yet.

If you are debating against animal testing, the very best place to start, with the most well supported arguments against the practce is P.E.T.A (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals)
Their pages on experimentation begin here:
The Humane Society pages
And on alternatives
Johns Hopkins has gone so far as to establish a Center dedicated to finding alternative research methods
It really is a myth that animal testing in this day and age has any valid benefit to mankind. But promoting that "benefit" premise
and perpetuating the myth is still a great way of getting funding.
