What are the ethics of animal testing? I think this question can only be answered by the list of issues and limitations of animal testing. Therefore, from my real life situation: Using animals for biomedical researches can be beneficial, but detrimental for the animals.
So is it worth the pain or not? While looking at how animal testing has done a lot for us in the medical field people need to look at what the cost has been to achieve these. Many animals have been totured and even killed which in many peoples mind is wrong. Thousands on animals have been killed for our personal use and they had no say in what could happen to them. We just took them without their consent and hurt them.
This happens to animals everyday as a result of animal testing. Tons of animals die every year in our country and even across the globe because of animal testing. Animal testing should be stopped because testing is considered cruel, unreliable, and animals can suffer just like humans. To begin, animal death occurs every year in the U.S. According to PETA’s article “Animal Testing 101”, Approximately 100 million animals or more suffer and die throughout the U.S. every year in harsh chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics test (PETA.org).
We wouldn’t subject our pets to burning, starving, and isolation, so why is it okay to subject other animals to this cruel treatment? Animal testing is harmful not only because it is unsafe, but because it poses a question of moral judgement. Testing on animals should be illegal because it is unethical, drugs that pass animal tests are not necessarily safe, and many animals lack the protection required for their safety. Many people are unaware of the torture animals in labs must endure when being tested on.
Animal testing has been used by scientists to test drugs and makeup products for many years. They have been kept in labs, poked, prodded at, observed, forced to inhale, eat, and wear substances that have killed them. Millions of animals have died each year because of this testing, and it needs to be stopped. Animal testing should not be continued because it is ineffective, it wastes lives, and is inhumane. Animal testing needs to be discontinued because it is ineffective.
Abstract Animal testing the experiments performed on animals that are used to test the effectiveness and safety of a wide range of things, from medication to cosmetics. They are also used to understand how the human body works. Animal testing is one of the major controversial issues, but animal testing has dramatically contributed to science. First, some people think that animal testing should not be used for testing medical techniques and drugs. However, medical research involving animal testing improved the health of human beings.
All animals truly deserve to lead happy and healthy lives, yet some creatures are subjected to harsh animal testing experiments. Evidence has proved that animal tests are unregulated and longer prove accurate results. Animal testing needs be illegal in the United States because it is truly inhumane and completely unnecessary. Animal testing has been used for many centuries now. In fact, testing of animals can be traced all the back to the early Greeks.
Later tests on pregnant mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and hamsters did not result in birth defects unless the drug was administered at extremely high doses. Animal tests on the arthritis drug Vioxx showed that it had a protective effect on the hearts of mice, yet the drug went on to cause more than 27,000 heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths before being pulled from the market. It should stop because if we keep killing animals millions a year after awhile they will start becoming extinct. Some people might argue that god gave us animals to have to eat and use for purposes on earth like testing; but others will saying we are also here and what's the difference between us and animals.
When it comes to the topic of cosmetic animal testing (Cosmetic animal testing- taking cosmetic products finished or unfinished and using them on animals in many different ways to test for different affects), most people will acknowledge that it is inhumane and unsafe for the sake of animals. When this agreement ends, it is on the question of why we need animals in research. Whereas some are convinced that it’s not harmful to any animal during the process, others maintain that it’s still the most known cosmetic testing today. The Humane Society acknowledges that testing on animals is a well known form of cosmetic testing.
The practice has granted a new life to hopelessly ill patients, modified medicines and made the surgeries fruitfully creative. New alternatives to this practice are in making, but considering the rate at which doctors are fully developing them, the society is still years away from bringing up something that can totally eradicate the traditional animal experimentation. Just like every other scientific practices, animal experimentation, too, becomes a success only after many trials and errors, causing a loss of few innocent animal lives. However, those numbers do not seem as a burning concern when compared to other industries that depend on animals. According to statistics, food animals kill 56 billion animals in the USA which largely differed from the 25 million of animal experimentation (Laws and Regulations).
While some believe animal testing should be continued, animal testing is inhumane and should be eliminated because animals cannot protect themselves and the results of such testing is often deadly Animal testing is cruel and deadly. As of 2016, 19,500,000 animals are killed due to testing each year. That’s 1,625,000 animals per month that did not have to die; they did die though due to dangerous and unsafe products. Every day about 53,425 animals die from testing unsafe products. This type of treatment to humans would be illegal and those testing would be convicted of committing mass murder.
In the end, the minimal protections offered by the AWA and PHS policy provide no real safety or relief to the millions of animals in labs and offer only a false sense of security to the caring public. All it takes is for people to know the facts about animal testing and what truly goes on behind closed doors. If more people understood how it affects the lives of animals, maybe, just maybe their could be a change in the way people think about animal
Animal Testing Should we do it? Animal Testing has many harmful effects. Animal Testing has been used for over 100 years for many different reasons and purposes. Cosmetic Animal testing (which is the most common use of Animal Testing) has been banned in the European Union, India, Israel, and Norway. Here are a few ideas why we should not do it, Animals are very different from human beings and therefore make poor test subjects.
Animal Testing is Inhumane. Multiple species are dying by normal nature happenings, such as being eaten or something like that. However, that 's just the life cycle. But even with this ongoing cycle, the deaths that happen in it don 't get anywhere close to the amount of animals killed by us humans. Each year, 100 million animals, including mice, rats, dogs, frogs, cats, and more, are all killed for scientific usage.
Animal testing has become a double-edged sword topic all around the world. Researchers believe that it is morally ethical to conduct extreme research procedures on animals when it is unethical to conduct on humans. Research is responsible for many medical breakthroughs and an important factor to the development of medical advances is the inclusion of animals in research. Medical research with the help of animal testing has prevented hepatitis B, measles, etc. (Karayiannis et al. 2004).
