This was a chant heard by many "innocent" members of the public as they walked by a building in downtown Los Angeles on a recent anti-vivisection campaign.
This particular demonstration was against the infamous vivisectionist company known as Huntington Life Sciences... but there are many more to protest.
Anti-vivisectionists basically believe that it is not right to kill animals in the name of saving humans.
Besides for the obvious unneccessary "cruelty to animals issue" involved in live animal experimentation, there are countless scientific studies showing the NON-relationship of animal's anatomies to humans.
There are many other valid alternatives to vivisection and lab testing. Ecodefense.com says let's begin using those intead of innocent animals.
