Debate #29: Should animals be used as subjects for scientific research?
'Scientific research' is such a broad-ass term I don't know HOW you expect to get a straight answer for this. Hell, you could probably argue that me taking my dog out for a walk every day and recording how many times he stops to sniff at something counts as 'scientific research' because I am applying the scientific method! But that's probably not what you meant. What you probably meant is stuff like cosmetics testing and the like because that's what I've come to expect from you so far: trite, overused controversies mined from the headlines that are probably more suited for an elementary school English assignment on persuasive writing than any form of quasi-intellectual discourse. Plus, for someone titled 'amusingdebatess', you've pretty much entirely failed to deliver any sort of amusement from these questions whatsoever.
Here, you want an 'amusing' debate?
"Given the choice, would you rather smack your worst enemy across the face with a haddock, or a trout?"
Boom. Good for some cheap laughs, hence fulfilling the 'amusing' part, and since there is no clear moral issue at hand (unless you happen to be part of some obscure, trout-worshipping religious sect), people end up actually having to think about their answers and weigh the relative benefits of each option, instead of mindlessly regurgitating whatever moral values they happen to have been indoctrinated in by their parents or schools or the media.
