I am pro animal testing because animals repopulate In the wild and in captivity so,testing won't hurt. Animals are or needed for testing in order to keep humans out of harm's way. Using animals prevents people from dying and could save more depending on the medicine being tested. Animals must be used in cases when ethical considerations prevent the use of human subjects. When testing medicines for potential toxicity, the lives of human volunteers should not be put in
Animals are often tortured, genetically modified, and live in squalid conditions before they become the meat we put on our dinner tables. In Michael Pollan’s book, An Omnivore’s Dilemma, we are focused on many different views of eating meat and other foods that are products of animals. The majority of those who chose to consume
Animals that go to slaughter houses see misery long before arriving. Animals lay in their own manure while on the farm and are vulnerable to many diseases due to the lack of health care they receive. Many of these animals are not properly cleaned before being slaughtered. One former slaughterhouse employee states, “One of the real problems is that animals have spent their lives lying in their manure, are smeared and caked with the stuff, and they’re entering the food plant” (Pollan). One other slaughterhouse worker also said, “During the evisceration of the animal, the manure can get on the meat.
Eating animals: is it only question of morality? In the book “Eating Animals” of Jonathan Safran Foer a very significant problem of the contemporary food culture, factory farming and food industry is raised. While Foer focuses mainly on animal’s suffering and rights: “If contributing to the suffering of billions of animals that live miserable lives and (quite often) die in horrific ways isn't motivating, what would be?”(Foer 123), all these problems are intertwined and may be viewed from different angles. I would say that the thinking of Michkiko Kakutani is partly sound. The Jonathan Foer criticizes the contemporary conventional factory farming, food industry and culture and believes it to violate animal rights and the fact of putting animals into unbearable position at the moment of their slaughtering and their lifestyle, in general is beyond his understanding.
For example, book evidence says that“Animals are locked in labs and are treated inhumanely. They are also being injected with vaccines and medicines that could be toxic to their bodies, also along with the fact that their petrified in the lab. Unfortunately, despite all the protests against animal testing, scientists will not stop. Some animals in labs have died from dehydration, starvation, and worse.” More book evidence states that “In the most extreme cases, activists broke into labs and destroyed equipment” These poor animals are being abused and beaten because of testing. If you support animal testing, you're supporting the torture of thousands and thousands of animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits and more.
You could save an animal from drowning, but you could save a person from drowning too; the choice is difficult. You could protest for animals to have rights and not be tortured at slaughterhouses and still eat them from factories that do things like kill them in an abusive way. Animal rights, animals should have some rights with some limitations. I have issues involving this topic about animal rights because i have mixed emotions about how we can experiment and torture animals but still have them as pets. In articles by Jeff McMahan, “Eat Animals The Nice Way”, and by Maureen Nandi Mitra, “Animals Are Persons, too”, they talk from two different positions where we should eat animals and another where we shouldn’t experiment on them and let them be.
Voice for Animals I want you to know that the public are being lied to about the effects of testing products on animals. I think you need to know that everyday products are being used to torture innocent animals. I know that if the nation had all of the information they would join my fight against the horror that is animal testing! Sign up to the ‘Voice for Animals’ protest march today! We need to stop makeup, cleaning products, medicine and all other chemical based products being tested on animals not only because it is horrendously cruel but there is also a huge amount of money that is wasted in the process of testing.
These animals are tested with things such as medicinal substances, cosmetics, and food additives as well as tested to learn more about diseases and biological disorders. Many of these tests are useful and important in order to make sure that if a human were to consume them, they would have no adverse or negative effects. However, if it will cause harm to the animals, they should not be done, and most if not all are likely to potentially create physical and psychological problems. “Although pain and suffering are subjective experiences, studies from multiple disciplines provide objective evidence of animals' abilities to experience pain (Beck and Ferdowsian, “Ethical and Scientific Considerations Regarding Animal Testing”).” Since these animals are obviously able to feel pain, the testing should be precautious and considerate of the animal’s welfare. Nuno Henrique Franco, a graduate in the Laboratory Animal Science group, agreed saying, “While animal experiments have played a vital role in scientific and biomedical progress and are likely to continue to do so in the foreseeable future, it is nonetheless important to keep focusing on the continuous improvement of the well-being of laboratory animals, as well as further development of replacement alternatives for animal experiments (Franco, “Animal
Medical research is the hardest case of proposition in the debate whether animal testing should be banned or not, since it has previously yielded substantial benefits for humanity. Throughout moral, humanistic, and social perspectives animal testing is beneficial for medical evolution. Animals ' rights are of less moral worth than human rights. Humans are complex beings with large well developed brains, which form sizeable social groups, have significant ability to communicate with one another, and possess desires, preferences and interests about the world. Humans have an awareness of their own existence and mortality, and as such are beings worthy of moral consideration.
There has been over a million animals that have been tested, and some have died because of the medicine they have been exposed to. If many of the animals have died, then the people that work for the hospital or the vets have to get those dogs, and get rid them. The people would have to get more animals that are nice and healthy. There are many scientists who believe their work can’t be complete without animal testing. Many people think that animals should be tested because some substances may be harmful to humans if not thoroughly tested for safety.
