Critiquing an Article[edit]

I believe that the topic is strong with over represented view points so the author gets their point across in an assertive manner. Some information could be missing on more recent studies but overall I do not think any of the current information is out dated as animal testing has always been something we've done for things like cosmetic products. The article seems to be quite truthful in the idea of animal testing is wrong and that more people should advocate against it. I think more and more people now a days are advocating against this practice because more and more people are becoming aware of what is going on behind the seen. Essientally you could say that this article is heavily biased just because it favors being against animal testing more than it favors being for it. (Masonabbie (talk) 12:56, 26 September 2016 (UTC))

Biased article[edit]

This article heavily represents the viewpoints of the "ethics of animal testing" and "the opposition to animal testing." But it provides about 1-3 sentences in the whole article that presents the other side. This seems incredibly biased.

I am unable to find many scientific viewpoints on animal testing in this wikipedia article. Would you mind if someone adds some real scientists involved in animal testing? I can do it too if I may. talk § _Arsenic99_ 19:31, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Tone[edit]

I am concerned about the way this article reads. It does not feel like I am reading a factual, informative entry like I would on any other subject; as pointed out above it seems biased. It has a lot of assumptions and speculations thrown in for no apparent reason, and random statements like 'from zebrafish to non-human primates'. What relevance does the zebrafish have to make it the bottom-tier experimental animal?

The whole thing, to me, reads like a preachy 7th-grade oral report. There's a section entitled 'pain and suffering' that seems to be worded that way for shock value. A normal article would title that something like 'Welfare of Subject Animals'. At the same time, there is no section regarding the results of animal testing - what technologies and insight have come from it.

I think this whole article needs to be reviewed for tone and completeness.
