Amstaffer I agree about doing testing on inmates that are on death row, problem is there are too many human rights and red tape to cover everyone's arses, it will probably never happen. I don't think it's all about vanity however. You couldn't tell a child who is fighting cancer or aids that they are being vain for wanting for wanting to be healthy. Or someone who came in contact with the SARS virus, or avain flu, they are being vain for wanting to live to see another day with their family, without being deathly ill.
I think it depends on which facility you go to of how the animals are housed and cared for and to what degree the bio-safety of the lab is that would allow them certain accomadations others would not be able to.
