Down With Animal Testing There are certain things about animal testing that the community doesn’t know. Some people know what happens to those animals and they don’t want to face what happens. The inhumane treatment of animals used for research is well documented. There are many pros and cons considering the use of the animals in medical research. Animals shouldn’t be used for testing because it’s inhumane and it will make the population go down.
Frankly, animal testing is unethical on many levels. People would make a huge fuss if an animal was mistreated in the simplest way, but yet, when it comes to animal testing they protest and say it’s for the better good of the human life. I agree that striving to find new medicine to cure us is very important indeed; but why harm beautiful creatures, such as animals, to obtain uncertain cures for ourselves while there are loads of other ways to discover new
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?
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. According to most statistics, human results only agree 5-25 percent of the time which means that the process of animal testing is practically pointless as the results hardly ever benefit our knowledge of how to improve the products
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
People say negative things on the media so if others see it, they believe it’s true and just believe what others think, but in reality it shouldn’t work like that. Humans say things poorly about pitbulls that give them a bad reputation, therefore these dogs end up in animal shelters. “Researchers found that potential pet owners were less likely to take home a dog if shelters called it a pit bull because the breed is negatively perceived and considered less friendly and more aggressive than other breeds,” (Source F). It takes pitbulls almost three times longer to be adopted from animal shelters. A lot of people just believe pits are mean and can hurt you based off of their past.
Today the term euthanasia is used to give reason to the murders of innocent animals all over the world. Animals should only be put down by euthanasia if they are in pain or suffering. Unfortunately, most dogs that are euthanized over the course of the year are not aggressive or suffering from any disease (The Humane Society of the United States). Most of the animals are euthanized due to overpopulation in animal shelters. Euthanasia is a cruel and unnecessary practice that is not in the best interest for the animal.
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
Those statistics come from the US Department of Agriculture (New Technologies). Many argue that animal testing is not helpful and unnecessary. According to Andrew Rowan, “Aside from the ethical issues [animal testing] pose[s]--inflicting both physical as well as psychological distress and suffering on large numbers of sentient creatures--animal tests are time- and resource-intensive . . .
Or they can potentially be very dangerous if they escape or turn on a person, they can also carry very deadly diseases. Despite these being true statements, there are many reported pitbull fatalities and attacks each year, along with rottweilers and other types of large and aggressive dogs. It also begs the question, is it humane to keep any animal in captivity. Or should having pets be banned in general? A very blatant statement for people who disagree with keeping exotic animals as pets is that it is unfair to the animal itself to be kept in captivity and that is very selfish of us as humans to contain such animals.
