#stopanimalabuse no #animalrights in #america stop #vivisection In the U.S. , methods for creating pain in animals are patented. The latest patent frenzies are focused on laser techniques. Other already patented technological procedures involve freezing, sutures, nerve transactions, and chemical irritants. Putting animals in extreme pain is deemed necessary for pharmaceutical companies to test their opiates. Each and every derivative is tested on many animals. Of the thousands of derivatives, very few ever get approved. New opiates are no more effective than older (or natural) ones. Each company strives for their own patents/brands.
