These damages that are inflicted on their workers can be critical, life-changing or even lethal. Mr. Sinclair’s book provided more distressing news of the terrible practices in this industry taught to the workers so that more meat can be distributed for profit. “He wrote that workers would process dead, injured, and diseased animals after regular hours when no meat inspectors were around” (“Upton Sinclair’s”). Meatpacking industries provides more meat for their customers purely for profit. This causes the industry to be influenced to sell its meat, no matter the condition it is in.
That is not a justified answer, it is NOT okay to watch as thousands of animals get mutated by lab tests and then have to be destroyed because they are now labeled as "chemical waste". These are living beings with hearts that beat just like our own. Sadly, not everyone cares for the lives of these creatures and many of these monstrous acts continue every day. There are organizations such as PETA that do their best to shut down animal testing facilities and laboratories. Protesters stand outside of testing sites with signs while chanting to let the animals go.
Animals shouldn’t have to suffer, living in the plant factory is unfair and brutal. All animals have feelings, they have a right to kind treatment, and a right to live in this world. The meat packing industry disregards animal’s emotions and their rights all together by the malicious treatment of animals. The way animals are being treated is highly unfair. Being slaughtered for their body parts and suffering just to be used for protein or an asset to humans is unbearable.
This goes back all the way to the 12th century, after the war that occurred when the Romans invaded Britain. The British then were upset, so they had their dogs fight each other for entertainment. This went on until about 1835, because it was banned. The abuse of farm animals didn’t begin, however, until the early 19th century. “Most animals in these facilities are forced to endure physical and psychological abuse for months if not years on end, deprived of the ability to perform behaviors inherent to their species, and housed in overcrowded facilities with insufficient food, water and natural light” (Animal Cruelty).
The traditional view of vegetarianism is challenged by questions such as what animal is morally wrong to eat, what is an animal product and whether it is morally right to eat it. The moral position is not shared among all humans. More interesting, vegans who seem to value animal life seem to have no opinion towards carnivorous animals that frustrate the same right to life of fellow creatures. As such, even though animals by themselves are not moral agents, their feasting on meat may be considered prima facie wrong. The most logical answer to the moral dilemma of animal eating meat is that carnivores, unlike human beings, cannot survive without eating meat.
For example, in the website Procon, it states,“Opponents of animal testing say that it is cruel and inhumane to experiment on animals.”This shows that animal testing is not good and makes animals suffer miserably. The thing that is surprising is that people actually agree with animal testing! For some reason, people don’t care about animals lives and their deaths. That is confusing because people should care about animal sufferings and deaths and not just think that animals are fine with going through suffering. They should care that there are animals suffering and dying all over the world as they speak.
The definition of the word slaughter is ‘to kill in a violent or brutal manner.’ (n.d.,2017) In our minds we recognize violence as being wrong and immoral no matter who the victim may be. Unfortunately, disgusting acts are happening every day behind the closed-doors slaughter houses around the world. Many others and myself, believe that theses slaughter houses should be shut down for some obvious reasons. They have horrible living conditions, they are harming our environment, and they are unnecessary for our survival. First of all, slaughter houses everywhere are being exposed for mistreatment of animals.
Millions of animals are abused and left to die a long exhausting death each year. Many people don’t know that the cosmetic products they own are tested to see if the products are safe for humans. In the process of the testing animals are tested using harmful chemicals that often burn the animal’s skins and the ruthless workers leaving them to die a long painful death. Animal testing is inhumane and should be banned. Animal testing kills and tortures millions of animals each year.
However, some still might say that animals aren’t like people, and they don’t have feelings so you can just treat them how you’d like, but this isn’t true at all. Animals are always by your side, and even though they can’t speak, you can just tell what they’re thinking, unlike most people. When people are mean to you, and it seems like you have no one else in life, they’re always there for you. How could you hurt an animal that God gave to you as a friend in life when no one else was there, but they were? I don’t know how you could.
Furthermore, I’m unwilling to abstain from “all” animal use. I love meat and by submission am just as guilty as the next person who actively supports, condones or engages in the act of causing undue suffering on non-humans. Some claim a necessary first step would be to make it illegal to place a property status on animals. We don’t sell or own human beings, so why should non-humans be the exception? Humans do however in certain instances control other humans.
