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?"
