: : As a Procter and Gamble employee, I take offense to the constant criticism of the methods used for the testing of our products. My only question to you is - Would you (or anyone opposed to this) let us test our products on you? If so, we would be more than happy to take any volunteers!!

: Sorry, devoted P&G wageslave, but I get my personal care products from companies that do not test on animals, like Tom's of Maine. The difference between cruelty-free companies and vicious outfits like P&G
: is that cruelty-free companies actually have principles besides profit at all costs. They are willing to pay a little more for non-animal tests rather than blinding and poisoning animals. P&G could become cruelty-free if it wanted to, but it would have to worship something besides the all-mighty dollar to do so. So, let's all boycott the bastards who run Proctor & Gamble.

Why , Proctor and Gamble , do you find it necessary to torture and kill helpless , defencless , voiceless animals ? Especially when there are so many other LESS-COSTLY alternatives ? Not only would we , the public who boycott P&G be happy but I think your company would be happy too .... then you wouldnt get all the critisism that you do , you would get more buyers ... which means more profits ... and thats all your in it for anyway , so what does it matter? What about the dog you have at home ? Would you take it into work to be tortured ? No you wouldnt now would you ... so why do it to other animals ... because they dont fetch your newspaper , lick your feet or piss on all the fire-hydrants in your neighborhood ? Just think about it. Im almost sure you want to agree with all that we're saying ... but you dont want to give in. We wont riducule you or attempt to find other reasons to protest your company ... so why not admit it ? It angers me greatly to think that because they arent human or necessarily "domestic "animals you find nothing in your heart to stop this. Just think about what your saying and think about the PROs .... if you were to give up the crulty to animals.
