Animal rights is one of the least thought of controversial topics around the globe. Regardless of the way some of the population feels about this idea, there are few people who take responsibility in standing up for these powerless beings. Although it may seem that the negative treatment of these animals appears to be decreasing yearly, there are still a multitude of people who take advantage of these animals’ defenselessness. Due to the people who assert their dominance over animals, experimentation has become more accepted throughout the world. This is an inadequate way of attempting to find the answers and results to the questions of these experiments. The poor treatment of animals is achieved by the fact that there are not enough laws to protect the rights that they cannot establish for themselves. In order to protect these helpless animals, there needs to be a larger amount of ways to go about decreasing the abuse inflicted upon them. The ways that animals are treated is unfair, immoral, and unethical. Animals are taken advantage of in a variety of ways such as household abuse, farm factories, …show more content…
The laws that are here today do not do enough to protect our animals. There are always loopholes to get around doing things the proper way. For instance, different breeders keep their business a secret to avoid obeying the law. In conjunction with this, the mills that are public often times follow the law so exactly but the puppies still have harm inflicted upon them. If the law calls for an animal to be able to stretch and turn around in its cage, the breeders will buy a cage exactly large enough for this to happen. By buying smaller cages, they can save funds by not buying larger, more proper cages. If the law says that certain animals need at least an hour of exercise a day, they will do exactly that, if not
This article is targeted for people interested in animal rights, experiments on them, and alternative testing methods. Poste’s purpose for writing this
Animals are subjected to excruciating experiments daily. Countries such as Israel and India have stopped animal testing as well as Britain. “…countless animals are experimented on and then killed…” (Murnaghan 1). Animals are subjected to confined rooms all of their lives, used in painful experiments and then disposed of as if they are an inanimate object.
The breeders just make money off of animals and they don't even have to keep them in that good of conditions. Also what is the point of getting exotic animals? Like tiger, bears and big ones like that. It is unfair and unsafe for the animals I don't see why people can buy animals that need a lot of space but they give them like none. There needs to be a way to guarantee animal's space.
Specific Purpose: By the end of my speech, the audience will know about the problem of conducting experiments on animals and the ethical issue of the cruel treatment of animals by the researchers. While the problem of conducting experiments on animals draws attention of the society, the speech would present the limitation of animal experiments and outline the alternatives. Central Idea: 1. Conducting experiments on animals has become one of crucial ethical issues of the modern society and it has even been banned in some countries.
Animal cruelty is becoming an issue that is too big to ignore. It can be defined as neglect or the infliction of pain or suffering towards animals. One might notice that this is an issue that is becoming more common in zoos and aquariums. These places can be wonderful for the animals, but can also portray an awful life for the captive animals. No animal should have to go through the pain and stress that many are suffering through.
700,000 animals are captured and put into zoos each year. Just think about the number of lives we are ruining day by day. Firstly animals should be able to roam around freely, not be behind bars when their lives have just begun. Humans may see them as a treat, but they deserve the equality humans are been given. Imagine waking up to nothing but lifeless animals and cages till the eye can see.
Animal Cruelty Have you ever wondered how much atrocious animal treatments are occurring around the world? The average number of animal abuse cases reported in the media each year is 1,920 according to a study conducted this year by Statistic Brain Research Institute. Moreover, a lot of animals struggle around the globe because they are often beaten, neglected and hunted, which forces them to fight for survival. Helpless animals continue to be exploited by humans and are still constantly being robbed of their lives. Thus, animal cruelty is the killing, exploiting and neglecting the needs of animals that are causing extinction and nonessential suffering.
Did you know the first zoo to charge an extra fee did it so they could help the animals? This supports my reasoning that there shouldn't be laws about animals in captivity. Even though some people don't agree with me saying there shouldn't be laws about animal captivity I think there shouldn't be laws because zoos treat the animals better, they have good security, and they save animals. First of all zoos treat animals better than before because say lions if they roared at us we would roar back to them but now we don't roar at them. Also in zoos there used to be in a cage with only grass and straw now they live in a cage that looks like there habitat with real trees.
INTRODUCTION Traditionally around the world, animals / non-human animals are being perceivedas material goods or used for various activities such as food, clothing and fashion, research focusses, entertainment, animal hunting sport, animal slaughter in Africa for rituals and so forth. Many philosophers have been advocating in defense of animal rights such as Tom Regan who argues that our treatment to animals is wrong because we violates their rights. However, there are other movements who support animal cruelty such as religious beliefs and utilitarian approaches to animal rights which are acting in favor of humans over non-human animals. In this essay I will be defending the rights of animals and argue about the moral standing of this act against non-human animal cruelty. BODY I believe and regard non-
Animal Rights Some people assume that just because animals cannot speak that they cannot feel pain. It is not okay to torture living beings that have their own thoughts and breathe the exact same air us humans breathe. It is unjust and selfish to stand by and take no action while everyday hundreds if not thousands of innocent animals die without reason. No matter how much fur or how many limbs the creature has; it should be treated as equal as a person. A heart beat is a heartbeat regardless of the body it’s in.
There is much disagreement as to whether non-human animals have rights, and what is meant by animal rights. People have had a huge disagreement about that if animals not humans then should they or should they not have human rights. Growing up I have always been taught that if we have animals even if they are used for food we should treat them as if they are family. Some animals are used for food yes others are not used for food and in this paper I am going to discuss; do human beings have any obligations to animals in terms of their treatment. If it is wrong to treat animals cruelly, why is it not wrong to eat them?
Animal rights has been controversial and the most debatably issue since time memory till date. This issue can be arguable trace since the genesis of civilization. How should we treat non-human animals? We sometime find strong moral status in them, but we usually repudiate them any kind of moral prestige. Are they not deserved any rights?
This example demonstrates that animals are kept in a captivity that does not have enough space for them run around like they can in the wild and the space the zoo gave them is simply not enough. This can lead back to my argument explaining why animals should not be kept in zoo as they cannot provide the nature that that wild can provide for
The organizations that are supposedly to help the animals may be good or bad. The abuse the animals face goes unreported. Dog fighting is the most popular abuse among with other animal fighting. Some of the animals can go to court for the abuse but this is not much help for the rest of animals
When the media shows positivity in animal entertainment, people usually demand more. And the more demand for animal entertainment the more animals get abused. All hope is not lost because there are still people with morals that oppose of animal entertainment. These people who support animal rights believe that animals should be treated humanely and not as the human gain for one’s own purpose, or entertainment (Gale). That would mean no zoos, aquarium, circuses, animal products like food or clothing.
