97. No, because my patronizing of an industry which tests on animals
encourages them to continue testing on animals. I don't delude myself into thinking that my actions don't have butterfly effect-style consequences for the rest of the world. So they both harm another creature. Where we disagree is how we value which creatures.

I can't answer yes or no, though. I've never been in that situation, I'd have to know specifics (how serious the conditions were, whether i had six months to live, etc.). Hell, if I had only a month to live, I'd say to hell with the drugs and go on a one-month drug and alcohol binge.

But it's just like the equally ridiculous question of, "If you saw a dog and a human baby drowning, which one would you save?" of course assuming that since vegans hate all humans and only like animals, we'd let the poor wittle baby drown and save the stupid dog.

So which of your kids would you kill?
