|Comments:||You should cite more evidence/qualified authors to make your claim. I'd also suggest making comparisons (even if animal testing is beneficial to humans, why would it STILL be a bad idea?)||I think your arguments are good, but your speech needs to be more responsive to his (for example, you need to deal with your opponents' claim that alternate forms of testing like that of human tissues solves better)|
The decision is for the Proposition: Matthew Bennett
Reason for Decision:
Alternatives to animal testing that exist in the status quo solves the opposition's impacts of human suffering. There is only a risk that we unnecessarily hurt animals.
