Good morning everybody. Thank you very much for giving me a
chance to inform you this matter. Did you know that during the first six months of
Chapter 5 Let’s Have a Debate
Wawan : So, why are you doing this, Susan?
Susan : I told you, it’s for charity.
Wawan : I know - it’s a ‘Save the dolphin’
charity, isn’t it? Ratna
: No, it isn’t. Look, Wawan, it’s all written here.
Susan : It’s to raise money for a really old
temple in South America which was damaged by an
earthquake last year.
Joko : You’re collecting money for an old
building Wawan :
What about collecting money for people or animals?
Joko : If you fasted for people I would
sponsor you, but an old place ... Wawan
I agree , anyway, there are many people here in this country that
need help. Why South America? Joko
: Or what about the animals which were threatened by the drought in
Africa last month? Wawan :
I think if we give to charity we should help people or animals.
Susan : I can see that, but the point is ...
Proponents of animal
experimentation point to hundreds of years of medical advances
made possible by research on animals.
Treatments for heart disease provide just one example, including open-heart surgery,
in which circulatory functions are temporarily controlled by a heart-lung machine;
coronary bypass to improve blood
Á ow to the heart
muscle; and valve replacement of a defective heart valve. Techniques and
equipment for kidney dialysis were also developed through
animal experimentation. More than 30
drugs for treating cancer,

À rst tested on rats and
mice. Vaccines for diphtheria, measles, smallpox, and many
other previously feared
developed through animal
research. Organ transplants, blood transfusions, microsurgery

procedures that save thousands of lives an- were destroyed in attempt to stop the pandemic
of avian in Á uenza? Did you hear that United
Nations coordinator, Dr David Nabarro, estimated the number of possible human casualties as
5–150 million people? Are you aware that since its discovery in the 1990s the avian
Á u has been contracted by more than 100 people, and one half
of them died? The truth is that it wont cure an infected
individual, but it will prevent a disease. At the moment there is no treatment for the human
modi À cation of the avian Á u. The government
has already purchased some six million doses of vaccination, so if you apply for vaccination
at his very moment, you are most likely to be inoculated.
I highly advise that you take care of yourself right now. The global matters are actually in
the hands of every individual. If everyone will be immune to the disease, the pandemic wont
break in. You just need to be inoculated in order to prevent an infection that can kill 150 million
people. Your future and the future of the United States depend on your choice. Choose life before
it is too late. Choose vaccination. Thank you 2004, approximately 200 million birds died or

humans, but dogs, cats,

distemper, rabies, anthrax, and other diseases of animals.
