Okay, so I have a thread like this before. I’m not a vegertarian or a vegan.
So is it a sin to use/buy products tested on animals? Whether it’s shampoo, makeup, cleaning products, hygiene products or medicine?
I know what the CCC says.
When I found out and thought about animal testing, I wanted to get products not tested on animals. So I got a few things that are not tested on animals. But then I read of different things. All that made me think if they don’t test on animals, what or who do they test on?
So now I’m not sure. The things I have not tested on animals I’m uncomfortable using because if they don’t test on animals, how do they run their tests?
I know there’s cell tests and that, but are they moral? Are they with Catholic teaching? Are they tested on aborted babies, or cells got immorally?
So what do I do? What do I use?
I stopped using my face wash a while ago so now my skin isn’t very clear. I can’t cover it with makeup because it might be a sin to use the makeup tested on animals but it might be a sin to use the makeup not tested on animals. I don’t use as much products as I used to, whether needed or not.
So, considering everything, is it a sin to use something tested on animals? Is it a sin to use something not tested on animals?
The one tested on animals causes animals pain, but the one not tested on animals may go against the dignity of human life.
Still though, what am I to use?
Is there any products where the tests that are ran are humane, have Catholic/Christian morals and don’t endanger or mistreat either human or animal life?
Could I please get answers here, since I asked here? Could a priest here please help?
Does anyone know any products that test agree with Catholic teaching and are fair to both?
Really appeciate help.
