Susan: Those who oppose experimentation on animals do not properly value the preservation of human life. Although animal suffering is unfortunate, it is justifiable if it can lead to cures for human ailments.
Melvin: But much animal experimentation involves testing of ordinary consumer products such as soaps, dyes, and cosmetics.
Susan: These experiments are justifiable on the same grounds, since cleanliness, convenience, and beauty are worthwhile human values deserving of support.
Which of the following is the best statement of the logical flaw in Susan’s argument?
(A) Her claim that animal experimentation is justifiable if it supports human values contradicts her claim that such experimentation is justifiable only if it leads to cures for human ailments.

A seems to be the best choice.

In 1st argument, Susan says 'it is justifiabe if it can lead to cure'
In 2nd argument, Susan still says it's ok eventhough it doesn't lead to any cure.

Very close between A and E. I think the primary difference between the two choices is that A is more of the overall position and E delves into the exact flaw.

Therefore, I am going with E.

Please provide OA and OE
