    Comments: Please post links to articles so I can check validity of evidence. Also http://youshouldntwearthatfedora.tumblr.com/ need to work on offense/defense arguments. the whole tamoxafin argument is very persuasive with me since my Mom takes it but the burden of the negative is to prove that it could not have been tested by the methods that the affirmative puts forth

    The decision is for the Proposition: Nick Julian

    Reason for Decision:

    Negative makes too many defensive statements and not enough warranted analysis to defend animal testing. Proposition does a good job of stating that animal testing is unnecessary in the status quo, oppositions only answer to it is essentially "then why do people still use it?"

    In young Mr. Julian's defense, we tried to upload the citations, but for whatever reason they never appeared under his speech. We emailed the tournament about it and we hope it is fixed for Round 2. Thank you for the feedback and for judging.
