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.
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 should not be a usage of animal testing because it is cruel and inhumane. Although animal testing could potentially save lives, it is still killing millions of animals lives in the process. Primates at NIRC were so stressed that they were, "tearing gaping wounds into their
Animal testing has abused thousands and thousands of animals. From shattering the hearts of millions of animal lovers, making beagles inhale poison, locking animals in small cages and horrifying the poor innocent things. Here’s the evidence to support that animal testing must stop soon. Heartless scientists put thousands of adorable animals through trauma and pain just for medicines, drugs and much more. Animals lives are just as important and valuable as humans.
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.
This fact shows that even though the drugs have been developed and tested successfully on animals, they are not 100 percent safe. So the argument for animal tests dissolves. Furthermore, apparently the USA wastes more than 16 billion US dollars annually on animal testing. 16 billion dollars! If they invested this money on other projects such as welfare, this would save a lot of people without torturing
Is animal testing necessary? Did you know that about 70,000 animals are killed every year due to animal testing? Well, it’s true. This topic is something less talked about and often avoided. 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.
Puppy mills are a controversial issue that must be outlawed everywhere in the United States for its merciless acts towards dogs. These bitter breeding places should be made illegal for three major reasons. First, these puppies are not given an adequate amount of care. They eventually contract many diseases which are left untreated. Second, many analysis and statistics show that they are located everywhere in an immense amount.
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.
During animal testing, many animals are killed after experimenting on them and the others remain alive with injuries and in captivity. 95% of the animals tested are not protected by Animal Welfare Act including mice, fish and birds and they are all suffering abuse and mistreatment. Even with the protection provided by the Animal Welfare Act, some horrific cases of animal abuse in the laboratories wasn’t prevented. Some people also find it immoral to test and experiment on animals for the human benefit saying that animals do feel and suffer like humans and so it is unfair to experiment on them what cannot be experimented on humans only because they do not have the ability to express their feelings. However, animal rights supporters do not oppose the farmers who kill animals daily for food but call the scientists cruel for killing animals for the advancement of medical field although, 99% of animals killed are by farmers while only 1% are by scientists (Ian, Should Animals Be Used for Scientific or Commercial
