I declined to apply for a job at Revlon where I would have to apply toxins to live rabbit eyes, for the sake of developing - make-up. This might be a major reason I don't wear the stuff.... Medicines are essential. Make-up is NOT. Every woman is pretty enough without! Hmm, I guess a theme from earlier? At any rate, Mom was extremely unhappy that I refused to apply for the position.)
Good for you. I've always felt that animal testing should be reserved for finding a cure for cancer, or something else very serious -- and that everything possible should be done to make the animals as comfortable as possible, and not in pain.
