Should animal testing be banned?
The fact that other forms of oppression are applied to animals does not make this form of oppression any more right. Two wrongs don't cancel out in morals, they make things worse.
If you enslave someone, it does not make the fact that you are torturing him as well any less terrible, just because they are already enslaved. These are both separate instances of wrongdoing which, when done together, add up in a negative sum total of your treatment of said party.
This question is not about morality but about if animal testing should be legally banned. The law should be consistent where possible. Allowing animal farming while banning animal testing while ethically rating the second over the first would would break that principle.
