ADULT: OFF HOME DIRECTORY SEARCH RANDOM POLL MAKE A POLL

Spaying and castrating animals.

If you haven't seen my other poll ("Would you want to be surgically neutered?"), I started a campaign which aims to bring about a ban on spaying and castrating animals in the U.K. due to the side effects and the fact that there are alternatives to neutering (my website's address is www.freewebs.com/society_against_neutering). I designed this poll in order to find out what other people think about the alternatives.
Do you think that vasectomies and tubal ligations should be used to sterilise animals instead of spaying or castration?
Yes
No
Depends on the type of animal
There should always be a choice
Do you think that is is morally acceptable to spay or castrate animals to solve behavioural problems?
Yes
No
Only in extreme cases
Do you think that neutering animals to prevent various medical problems from occuring (eg. womb infections and testicular cancer) is a justified reason for neutering the animal? (If you have a strong opinion on this point, please could you post something on the message board)? (This does not include neutering animals in order to treat diseases if no other cures would work).
Yes
No
Only if the animal's health is improved overall.
Do you think it would be ethically acceptable to spay and castrate humans against their will for reasons which are used to justify doing it to animals?
Yes
No
In certain circumstances
In general, do you think that neutering animals is a good idea?
Yes
No
Are you male or female?
Male
Female
