|Comments:||You should post your citations so we can see the sources you use. Describe some of the pain the animals are forced to go through during the testing. A lot of your claims would be better if they were more firmly backed up by evidence.||Post citations for the evidence you're referring to in order to make your speeches. You also need to use better sources than science.google.com or wordpress websites. Cite actual scientific studies directly. You should also respond more directly to your opponent.

The decision is for the Proposition: David Diaso Jr.
Reason for Decision:
It was a good debate until the opposition conceded the round. While I'm glad you're on the same page I wish the debate took place. You can debate over the way the proposition debates without having to say testing is good. Ie you can say the states should ban testing instead of the USFG, etc.
My suggestion to the proposition would be to go into more graphic details to really sell the horrors of animal testing. Also- CITES! It would really help in a debate that came down to the effectiveness of testing to have the actual sources you're using be available to the judge. Otherwise, good job!
