So they believe that is a better benefit to risk an animal life than a human life. The World Medical Association Declare of Helsinki states that human trials should be preceded by tests on animals. But the real truth is that the drugs that they use on the animals aren’t necessary safe for us , for example the 1950s sleeping pill thalidomide, which caused 10,000 babies to be born with severe deformities. Scientist tries it on pregnant mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and hamsters, but it did not result in birth defects unless the drug was administered at extremely high doses. In conclusion animals testing should not be done because animals are like human beings, they feel, they live, they eat so why would we want to kill animals for any type of testing when we could try it on a human being that might want to let the scientist try it on them.
The scientists have to treat all the test subject humanely because if not and someone gets hurt or dies the scientists will be responsible for the accident. Testing upon animals saves humans from having To volunteer to be tested on and possibly die from the drugs. When using animals I won't matter because compared to how many animals we kill for food the test are a small
Toxic chemicals are then poured and smeared in the rabbit’s eyes and monitored to check how toxic it is. These animals are not offered any anaesthetics like a human would in any situation that may cause minor pain, and left to die from pain or be put down from their suffering. A study into Draize testing concluded that it “does not show the eye irritation hazard for man.” So, why do companies use it? Cosmetic companies can use scientific machinery and testing, that are more accurate than torturing animals senselessly. However, the reason
Animals should have the right to be free from unnecessary suffering and experimentation because they are innocent creatures. An argument for opposing the Animal Bill of Rights is that research will be slowed or stopped completely, resulting in the death of humans that could have been saved. The Animal Bill of Rights is not meant to stop or prevent experimentation on animals; it is meant to limit the extraneous suffering and torment animals go through in the name of development. Animals are innocent- it cannot defend itself against malevolent human intentions. The Animal Bill of Rights is meant to prevent the exploitation of animals and refute the justification that experimentation makes animal cruelty moral.
The project licensee requires you to be trained and educated at an appropriate level. Although this helps limit the amount of animals used as test subjects, it does not eliminate animal testing all together. In the United States, it is not legally required to test cosmetics on animals before manufacturing and selling a cosmetic product. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act does not condone the sale of mislabeled cosmetics and does not require animal tests to be conducted to demonstrate cosmetics are
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?
Each of us can help prevent animal suffering and deaths by buying cruelty-free products, donating only to charities that don’t experiment on animals, requesting alternatives to animal dissection, demanding the immediate implementation of humane, effective non-animal tests by government agencies and corporations, and calling on our alma maters to stop experimenting on animals.PETA campaigns globally to expose and end the use of animals in experiments. Some of our efforts include the following: Groundbreaking undercover work and colorful advocacy campaigns to educate the public, Pushing government agencies to stop funding and conducting experiments on animals, Encouraging pharmaceutical, chemical, and consumer product companies to replace tests on animals with more effective non-animal methods, Helping students and teachers end dissection in the classroom, Funding humane non-animal research, Publishing scientific papers on the superiority of non-animal test methods, Urging health charities not to invest in dead-end tests on
Animal testing is just killing animals for no reason because there will always be the first human to test a new drug or cosmetic. So, using animals is really useless because just because a drug is safe for an animal does not mean it will necessarily be accurate and safe for humans. PISC scientist Gilly Stoddard says “it is unconscionable that animals are dying as a result of the failure to update testing guidelines.” (O’Driscoll 8) Animals should not be dying because humans are using them for inaccurate tests.
How can you sit there and watch such cruelty?” Making animals test subjects are wrong, no matter what’s its purpose. Is it right to kill those innocent creatures painfully? No. It’s not right to harm them for our own benefits. Every living soul have rights, this includes animals, and just because they can’t speak up for themselves doesn’t mean we can take that away from them.
For decades, humans have used animals for their own benefit without taking into consideration that animals have feelings. How would you feel if one day someone captivated you and used you as an experiment? Before cosmetic companies sell their products they test them on animals to make sure they will not cause any damage or harm to the customers skin regardless of the injuries they cause to the animals. Just like any human being animals should be protected from any harm because they have feeling. Animals should be able to live in their natural habitat without fear of being captivated and tortured.
Many people may think the food they eat are killed humanely. For some animals this is the case, but not all meat distributers follow the rules of the Department of Agriculture. More importantly, birds do not apply to the law that states animals must not be able to feel pain when being killed. They can be paralyzed and drowned while still conscious(Cruel Slaughterhouse
Even though these factors are great, eliminating animal captivity for entertainment purposes is still the best choice for the innocent animals. The most important reason why circuses should not be allowed to capture wild animals for entertainment purposes is because the animals are abused. Around the world, "[...] circus[es] [...] [have] been cited for violating the [...] standards of care set by the United States Animal Welfare [...]" ("11 Facts About"). Studies that are produced have made the horrific treatment of animals hard to ignore. The AWA has cited many circuses for having scraps of metal that can cut the animals, and wood that can easily cause splinters near the animal 's cages.
If more people would be tested on in place of animals, there 'd be less poverty, less animal suffering, and more accurate results” (Emily16 4). The quote undermines the purpose of using animals for testing. Therefore, I disagree with Emily16 because she believe if we use human as test subject in place of animals like rat, mice there will be less poverty in the world, that is just an absurd statement. Emily16 clearly does not think it is inhumane if we conduct test on human and consequently not pleasing human which can ends up causing
No one would buy a product that could potentially damage eyes, be cancerous or cause any type of harm. Cosmetics are often tested for skin irritation using rabbits as test animals in Ethiopia. Rabbits are a suitable model since they have value in predicting skin irritancy. The study concludes that these cosmetics were highly toxic and dangerous if used on human skin (Amasa et al. 2012).
These reasons have brought the animal rights group’s attention to criticism. The scientists and doctors treat the living beings with such disrespect, ignorance, and cruelty. They treat it as if it is a test object, but not a living being. Also, animal use cannot always be reliable and accurate. For example, many drugs that appear safe and effective in animals fail in humans, or cause significant harm and sometimes even death.
