All it is saying is that that are going to get these helpless animals and these people at BSI are going to gas them with chemicals, inject them with diseases, and risk of killing them. It says that some animals have died in this process and won’t even get recorded into the data, so the number of 115 million animals used, isn’t exact. This medicine will cause psychological stress and pain to these animals. The same animals that could be in your house right now.

There are many pros and cons of animal testing. One side agrees, and the other opposes. People all over the world have different opinions on this issue. Should you let the 100 million animals suffer just to fit the need of yourself, or should the animals live the life there suppose to? There is a heated debate on whether animal testing should be avoided in the U.S. Should the animals be able to go threw alarming experiences that can cost them their life forever, or should the innocent animals be tested on to make sure the products we use are safe and fit our
For decades humans have tested on helpless animals with cosmetics, medicines and other medical supplies such as bandages, cleaning products, candy, and even office supplies. Animal experimentation is a cruel and inhumane act upon creatures who are believed to be fearless and painless. But, on the contrary, others believe that animal testing has become a groundbreaking way of research for numerous diseases. Although many have mixed feelings about animal testing, it is something that we must address and take seriously, realizing that it is a horrible act upon innocent animals. According to the Humane Society International, animals are commonly subjected to force-feeding, forced inhalation, food and water deprivation, and many other pain-inducing and life-threatening situations during such experiments.
Paul McCartney is one of those people, and he stands up and fights for these poor animals being used to test chemicals. He agrees that the consumers of these products would not buy them if they saw what was happening to animals for that product to be on the shelves. Paul McCartney(2017) once said that “If every cosmetic tested on rabbits or mice had a photo on the packaging showing these animals with weeping swollen eyes and inflamed skin, I believe everyone would leave cruelty on the shelf.”(para.2). These animals do not deserve to live a life full of pain and die in pain from these tests. It is immoral, and
Animal Experimentation Animal experimentation has been practiced for centuries. Humans have always used other living beings for their benefits weather its consuming them, making unnecessary cloths out them such as fur, experimenting and using them as entertainment like in the circus. The treatments these animals experience is beyond inhumane. There are many different experiments done on these animals for human safety, these tests are for cosmetic industries, medical training, testing drug or different types of toxic chemicals and food. Animal experimentation is extremely cruel, unnecessary and unreliable.
Once said by Ricky Gervais, “Warning: Wearing make-up that was tested by torturing a beautiful, innocent creature makes the world an uglier place.” Cosmetic animal testing has been around for close to 80 years due to safety regulations that were implied by government. If these were really safety regulations, wouldn’t someone think that it is not safe to test on animals? Animals are animals whereas humans are humans. Using rats, dogs, or rabbits as testing subjects for mascara, perfume, shampoo, etc. is not humane at all.
Some makeup companies use the Draize test , which consists of dripping a substance called toluene into rabbits eyes. This can cause pain and in a few cases blindness. Given these scientific advances, there is no reason that these products cannot be safe and humane too. It is estimated that around 100,000-200,000 animals suffer and die each year just for cosmetics all over the world. Many different species of animal are used for animal testing some common ones include mice, fish, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and hamsters.
However, even with the supposed “protections” afforded by the AWA and PHS policy, millions of animals continue to suffer and die in unnecessary, inadequately monitored, and counterproductive research. 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
Discursive Essay (1st Draft) – Kevin Cho I have detested animal testing ever since I watched a document showing orangutan tortured to death during the animal testing. I was physically and mentally sick when I looked into its eyes. Now, while you are reading this essay, perhaps holding a scrumptious apple pie in your hand, hundreds of, thousands of feeble animals are dying by inhumane animal tests. The essay, 'Animal testing and its gifts to humans' by Frankie L. Trull is filled with untrue facts and incorrect ideas, which I have responded to in this essay. Torturing millions of animals to death just for human: Is this the right thing to do?
Animals are often being tortured and killed by their handlers if they don’t abide by the rules, such as staying still throughout the whole experiment. Moreover, animals in laboratories are experiencing force-feeding, forced inhalation, food and water deprivation, and even physical restraint. Some handlers rip out the animal’s vocal chords if it tends to cause too much noise. For as simple as cosmetic testing, the draize eye test, used by cosmetic companies to evaluate the aggravation brought by shampoos or makeup products, includes rabbits and bunnies being impaired with their eyelids being opened for multiple days. In the end of every experiment, most animals that are being tortured die, due to lack of proper aid and assistance.
