Try to imagine your life without anything that was developed with help from medical experiments such as these. Many more human live would have been lost without the major advancements in medicine derived from these experiments.

I can't bring myself to watch all of it. C'mon, man. There HAS to be a better way.

Knowledge about how animal physiology works has to be gained through experimentation and cannot be divined with tea leaves. Also - Where do people imagine all the products they use come from? Products that many people need/want have to be developed and tested. Animals are generally used when there is any slight chance that this development/testing could be harmful or unpleasant. Furthermore - why are cats considered so much more deserving of sympathy than e.g. rats or mice?
I personally like animals more than people but I do see the pragmatic reasons why animal experimentation takes place in most cases.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. How would this have *ever* passed ethics approval? One of my favourite things of working with algae and higher plants is that I never have to worry about ethics approval. Those panels are a nightmare to get by, and I for the life of me have no idea how this would get a stamp of approval from such a board.

We use the treatment program developed by Dr.Julie Medlin. It is two years in length. Google sex offender recovery rates and you will find some pretty good studies. A lot depends on the individual offender.

As was mentioned before there are computer simulation programs that have been developed for research to avoid this type of cruel practice. Also, I work as a counselor in a state correctional institution and am currently assigned to the sexual offender treatment program there. While nobody likes someone who commits a sexual crime, few sexual offenders re-offend after treatment.

In almost all cases, human lives are more valuable than cats. I would let a thousand cats die before allowing one human to die, but that's just me.
Don't get me wrong, I like cats well enough(though they make your house smell gross), but a human with responsibilities and a family has more to offer the world than one little orange tabby kitty.

Animal testing should only be used in cases where important and usable data may be acquired. An animals life does have value. Not equal to human life, but value none the less. Poor kitty.
I would be ok with testing on human criminals in exchange for some time off their sentence. Unless we are talking pedos, no time off for them. I see more value in a cats life over a pedophiles.

I used to think of PETA as a valid organization, like the SPCA, or the WWF. Then I learned some facts, like those PinkRhoid mentioned. PETA makes money, and they lie, distort facts, and use out-of-context statements to tell half the story. PETA do not practice what they preach.

Sure the motivations behind this experiment may have been less than stellar, but this is one example, one.

Gerry said it best, imho. Animal testing is a sad and unfortunate reality. The lives that have been saved, the illnesses cured and pain relieved due to medical procedures and drugs who's development were only possible through animal testing are almost countless. There is not a single person on this thread who has not benefited from the results of animal testing.

drat a cat. My son can hear because of those implants.

The life of every cat in the world would be fair trade for ending disabilities in humans, no matter how much your 14 year old girl mentality says otherwise.

"If its not such a big deal, then why don't some of you idiots that say, it was just a cat, apply to be experimented on."

Because I'm a people, not a cat.

In 7 years in Norfolk, their hq Peta has killed 80% of animals left in its care while the local SPCA adopted 76%, nearly as many as PETA killed. Plus SPCA didn't euthanize theirs in a black paneless van by non-professional volunteers and dump the corpses into local dumpsters. Really, look it up people. PETA is a terrorist organization with horrendous objectives.

Look up Ingred Newkirk and her goals before touting PETAs work as extreme but necessary, there are plenty of non-psychotic organizations who care about the animals, fight for their freedom from these tortures, but don't have a shady hidden agenda involving murdering all domesticated animals and ensuring no more are made to be domesticated ever. Try the SPCA for starters.

Yes, what they did was terrible and with no reasonable (or actual) advances in medical science it was a total disgusting waste of life, pain, and sadness for nothing. So please, help fund PETA who will tirelessly euthanize these animals without even trying to find them a home to keep them from the millions of nasty old humans who simply want a companion. They are so concerned they even have unlicensed volunteers euthanize animals in vans on the go before dumping their bodies in dumpsters so kindly saving them from lives with humans. And don't forget that PETA will use your generous donations to indirectly fund terrorist organizations such as the ALF who have burned down entire science wings at Unis. Lastly, don't forget PETAS end goal, the complete liberation of animals from humans including eating meat or having companion pets. A wonderful organization for sure! With the largest financial baking for animal rights and welfare PETA adopts only about 6% back into homes and kills the rest

It won't hurt. But just in case it does we'll stick you in a sleeping bag and tie it shut snuggly around your neck so you can't move or react to the torture.
Sounds like a great way to get rid of some of the human parasites we have sucking the life out of humanity...you are using up oxygen that should be saved for the better good, so would you just die already ...as we have no more use for you. Actually we never had a real use for you, we lied about that, just so we could continue to get funding, torturing you made it look like we were busy doing something but not actually nothing

So, they didn't consider any alternative methods of testing this that didn't involve mutilating cats?

I am so passing this on, thank god for PETA, even though they seem extreme sometimes, they are doing some good for animals.
This was very sad, but thank you for making people aware that this goes on behind closed doors, it needs to stop.
