Experiment on sex offenders; VIEWPOINT.

I TOTALLY agree with Graham Miles: Letters April 6 - Medical research is just not worth it.

An animal has a totally different physiology to a human. Scientists can only give a best guess as to how a drug will work on humankind after seeing it in action on an animal.

Far better to spare that innocent animal in the first place and go directly onto human trials.

Ah, but who would you experiment on, I hear you ask.

Well, why else did God give us criminals? They are an absolute burden on society and serve no useful purpose. Start with (all) sex offenders, murderers and drug pushers then continue with others after those three groups.

Animals cannot tell scientists if they are sore anywhere, if they have a headache, are dizzy or a multitude of other ailments brought about by the drug tests. Humans can, though.

Not only would criminals thus start contributing to society, but it might make some of them think twice before they commit any wrongful act, knowing that such a fate awaits them if caught.
