Animal testing is cruel, unjust, and wasteful, and it needs to stop. It is used to test cosmetics, to gain scientific knowledge, and for tests in schools. The Humane Society states that animal testing is tests performed on live animals for basic biology, medicinal, safety, or health research. Even small procedures have the capabilities to cause the animal high stress or discomfort. Some animals are used in future experiments, but most are killed soon after the tests.
Because, we, the public, are mostly blinded by cover ups and lies that make animal testing seem like it's not a really bad thing, which is why I think it is important to know all the facts and why I think it should be banned forever. As stated in Humane Society International, the term animal testing “refers to procedures performed on living animals for purposes of research into basic biology and diseases, assessing the effectiveness of new medicinal products, and testing the human health and environmental safety of consumer and industry products such as cosmetics, household cleaners, food additives, pharmaceuticals and industrial/agro-chemicals.” Statistics reveal that, each year millions of animals such as dogs, cats, rats, mice, ferrets, hamsters and monkeys experience physical and mental torture due to scientific practices. This poor animals, every year, are dissected, infected, injected, gassed, burned and blinded in hidden laboratories all over the world, most of the time without anesthetic or pain killers. If they are not killed by the testing, the animals are brutally killed. Do you know what they do to these poor dead animals?
Most of the animals used in research are killed in experiments. The animals lives are sacrificed for bad research every day. In conclusion, animals are being put through pain just to die; some of the scientists don’t even know what they are testing the animals
They assert that it is the best way to save a lot of people's lives by using relatively small numbers of animals. Trull says that the success of animal testing has led to safe treatments for human. Admittedly, this is certainly true about some animal testing. However, in the USA, more than 100,000 people died due to the drugs that were successfully passed by animal testing. This fact shows that even though the drugs have been developed and tested successfully on animals, they are not 100 percent safe.
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.
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
PROS OF ANIMAL TESTING Nearly every nobel Laureate in physiology or medicine since 1901 has relied on animal research. Animal testing has decreased heavily over the years, with not very necessary things like makeup. Without animal testing we wouldn't have the many of the surgerys that we can today such as hip replacement surgery, kidney transplants, heart transplants, or blood transfusions. Modern anesthetics, the tetanus vaccine, penicillin and insulin all relied on animal research in their development.97% of the UK research is done on mice, rats, fish and birds. And they all follow the regulations of state.
glish Speech In the year 2000, over 2 million animals were used for animal testing in the UK. Animals used from all over for animal testing that ranges from drugs to our simple everyday shampoo. In the last decade, cosmetic animal testing on innocent animals has become popular practice – and I am talking about how wrong and inhuman this act is. The public doesn 't know about the seriousness controversial topic, which I am certain of knowing is wrong. We shouldn’t silent such a topic, because of fears of upsetting people who affected – yet they should know what they are applying to their face is being used to torture innocent animals.
These animals often end up at shelters, contributing to the pet “overpopulation” issue. Thus, American Humane Association has learned that individual, cultural and community issues that lead to animal abandonment and try to engineer practical and effective strategies to stop animal abandonment from happening. These solutions would lower the amount of animals in animal shelters and cure the pet overpopulation problem that is sweeping the world. Countries like India have huge pet overpopulation problems. According to a national survey conducted by PetSmart Charities, more than 1 in 3 recently acquired dog and cat owners have not spayed or neutered their pet.
According to DoSomething.org, “Over 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, and abused in US labs every year.” Also, it is said that all 50 states have animal cruelty laws and it is also counted as a “felony provision” but, how is burning, crippling, poisoning, and abusing can be counted for as animal cruelty (Humanesociety.org). Animals sit there feeling petrified while scientist pinch and poke them, they wait until a burning sensation begins to go throughout their eyes and the pain slowly increases. Also, during these experiments the scientists often use restraining equipment in order to prevent the animal to stop moving. Some experiments just call for part of the body to be immobilized while others call for the entire body(Neavs.org). Animals cannot talk so they cannot agree to being tested on, nor can they say “stop” or “no.” These animals have to sit in silence and put up with the pain.
