Organizations like PETA were able to find the cure of cancer on mice, but the cure did not work on humans (PETA). Fifty percent of people believe that scientific research is not necessary for animals and the other fifty say it is necessary (ProTest). Some people disagree and say we need to use animals to find cures. It would be good to use animals because even though some cures may not work on animals, it could help save other animals with the disease and it also helped some humans because although not all diseases were able to help some did. In the end, animals should not be used for testing if the testing does not end up working on other humans (PETA).
Well animals are sometimes killed in the testing. They could be immune to things that can kill us. If a vet tested an animal with a new type of medicine for a dog disease without the owner’s permission and it backfired many dogs can become sick and die because of animal testing. Yes, I know it is sad, but it happens lots of times. Animals are killed in a test or kept in captivity for the rest of their lives.
Which means that most of the animals used in scientific testing are being abused for no apparent reason. Due to this realization, it seems ridiculous to continue to harm, expose to danger, and mistreat animals all in the name of science. Ethics are described as the moral principles that guide the way people behave. Ethical issues range from child labor to discrimination to animal testing. Science has put regulations and restrictions against the
Abstract Human life is precious, then how about animals? Ending human life is considered as unethical and this is against the law. However, this does not apply to animals. Even though most families treat their animals as part of their family members, animal euthanasia is still a controversial issue nowadays. Millions of dogs are euthanized in each year and several methods are used by the veterinarian to put the animal to death.
Many people fight for animal rights. They demand that animal testing should be banned. They think that it is very unethical and wasteful. With the development of technologies, people think that animal testing is archaic, and there are many alternative ways. Often animal testing fails, and it is cruel to play with their lives.
Paul McCartney is one of those people, and he stands up and fights for these poor animals being used to test chemicals. He agrees that the consumers of these products would not buy them if they saw what was happening to animals for that product to be on the shelves. Paul McCartney(2017) once said that “If every cosmetic tested on rabbits or mice had a photo on the packaging showing these animals with weeping swollen eyes and inflamed skin, I believe everyone would leave cruelty on the shelf.”(para.2). These animals do not deserve to live a life full of pain and die in pain from these tests. It is immoral, and
According to Humane Society International (2013), most animals will be killed after experiments while some will be re-used. Animals always suffer from physical and psychological treatments, such as force feeding, withheld food and water of the animals, imposed wounds on the animals so as to study the healing process of pills or medical procedures, etc. Animals usually cannot survive after all these tortures. With reference to a study, "only 59% of the studies stated the hypothesis or objective of the study and the number and characteristics of the animals used." (Kilkenny, 2009).
With lines being crossed in animal experimentation, many feared that human experimentation might be the next step. The evidence to back the claim lies within the animal experimentation field. Animals suffered when officials performed experiments on them. Susan E. Lederer writes, "Antivivisectionists warned repeatedly that the failure of enact legislative safeguards for animal subjects would inevitably lead to human experimentation" (Lederer 45). The lack of regulations among animals made people wonder if the same could be done to them.
Animal testing causes unneeded death to millions of animals that aren 't even protected under the Animal Welfare Act, and most experiments done on animals are flawed, wasting the lives of the animal subjects. But, there are also benefits to animal testing. For example, we wouldn 't have the polio vaccine or medical steps toward curing cancer. Even though that these benefits do exist it does not give these laboratories the right to abuse and force the animals into these tests, therefore, they should not be
Animal experiments are conducted to test whether the manufactured drugs, that are going to be put out in the market, are safe. They are also conducted as research purposes, like discovering cures for untreatable diseases. However, animal testing has been called in to question because its cruelty and lack of promised results. Is it possible to assume animal testing has become unnecessary? First of all, the conduction of animal experimentation can be easily rejected because of the immorality and cruelty that comes with it.
