is only through commercials and maybe some PSAs every now and then on the television. As it is evident in the way it is in current society, this is not even making a dent in the epidemic that is animal abuse. I believe that animal abuse should be treated as seriously as domestic or drug abuse. There should be counselors coming from school to school talking about the preciousness of every animal alive. We need to make sure none of our fellow classmates grow up to do these kind of things to animals.
Some people do not realize that animal neglect is a form of abuse. Some states have laws limiting the chaining of dogs (“Animal Cruelty Facts and Stats” 4-6). There is a limited number of laws that include animal abuse. The punishments for animal abuse is not just and people should be penalized more for their actions. Statistics say most of the animals that are intentionally abused are men under the age of thirty and animal hoarding is common for women over the age of forty.
The results from the animals would be very different in a human because they won’t be stressed like the animals are due to what they have to go through. We do not need to test on animals since their results are affected due to stress, and that would not be the case with humans. Even though millions of animals are tested on for cancer research and billions of dollars are spent on it, 95% of cancer drugs tested on animals fail. In fact, cancer has been cured in mice plenty of times but it does not work for
More than eight hundred and twenty thousand animals were tested in 2016, according to a news article entitled animal experimentation, and many products, like popular makeup brands, use animals in an inhumane and unacceptable. As demand for products and medical cures increase, animal cruelty and testing has skyrocketed as well. Most people think that household items come from a factory where everything is created without animal participation. Unfortunately, many animals are used in many household items are from animal involvement, including everyday things such as soap. Rather often than not, people use many things tested by animals on a daily basis that you may not know about.
The majority of people do not know the truth behind animal testing. The animals living conditions do not have regulations, so they are treated cruelly. Also the tests conducted on them are extremely unnecessary. Millions of animals are killed for experiments that are driven by idiotic curiosity. Also the results of these tests are close to and even sometimes have a zero success rate.
According to www.dosomething.org, animal testing is cruel and inhumane. As reported by the Humane Society International, animals in subjects are commonly subjected to force feeding, force inhalation, food and water deprivation, prolonged periods of physical restraint, the infliction of burns and other wounds to study the healing process, the infliction of pain to study its effects and remedies, killing by carbon dioxide asphyxiation, neck-breaking, decapitation, or other means. More than 100 million animals each year have to deal with this cruel and unusual punishment. What if you were the one going through all of these tests and punishments. There are many pros and cons of animal testing.
A wise man once said, “He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”(Goodreads.com). Animal testing is just a way to treat animals poorly. Scientists are able to be satisfied with themselves as they rub products into an animal's eyes without hesitation. They make themselves feel better about it by thinking, “It's for science.” And that's what they let out to the world but little do people know there is other ways to find out the same exact information.
Animals are killed in a test or kept in captivity for the rest of their lives. So we don’t need animal testing if this is going to happen to our poor animals. For example one website said, “Each year, more than 100 million animals—including mice, rats, frogs, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, monkeys, fish, and
Animal testing is unethical due to advance technology. Animal testing is unnecessary for human products. In the United States, there are an estimated “26 million animals [that] are used every year” with poor conditions and daily trauma (ProCon, 1). Testing animals is not reasonable because of modern technology. For example, “cell-based methods, next-generation sequencing and ‘omics technologies and computational modelling techniques” assert to the extinct of animal testing (Burden, Natalie, Fiona Sewell, and Kathryn Chapman, 2).
