Say It Like It Is..........

It's easier to think of animals as things if we call them something other than what
they really are:

WHAT THEY REALLY ARE: animals, individuals, beings

WHAT THE RESEARCHERS CALLS THEM: models, specimens, tools, subjects

* Distress is the word researchers use instead of pain or suffering.

* Apply noxious stimuli is the phrase researchers use instead of shock, burn, etc

* Sacrifice or euthanize are the words researchers use instead of kill.

The reality is that researchers do not "sacrifice specimens," THEY KILL ANIMALS.

Let's just say it like it is.
