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 Susanâ€™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.
(B) She places a higher value on human cleanliness, convenience, and beauty than she does on the preservation of animal life.
(C) She uses the word â€œvalueâ€

may be C??? or A...

value of human life vs. human value... are these the same???

(A) I think 2 claims do contradict... and that's because I she talks about value of preserving a life vs. values like cleaniness, etc... which are not life-threatening.

(B) not true... she talks about value both gives on emphasis IMO

(C) this could be it, because she first talks about value of preservation of life and then value of beauty, etc

(D) "all" consumer products??? she doesn't imply "all" part

(E) that's not the point... she isn't too clear on what value she is talking about

then it's b/w A or D... however I don't like D for "ALL" part...

yet A to me has the same idea, that deals with what her definition of value is.

Will go with E.

Susan first argument stress on value of human life. But in her second argument, she clearlt shifts tracks and talks about human values.

She fails to show how preserving human values will help in preserving human lifes.

Originally chose C, but now I understand why the answer must be (E). Should have used an extra 30 seconds and reread the argument.
Straight to the error log ---->
