Not all tests are relevant to human health. Certain scientific tests can cause human diseases instead of having a good effect. Testing on animals for medical research is not helpful because it can give us wrong answers. Many tests done on animals can provide misleading results. Animals die or suffer every single day in laboratories without any protection from grievous test.
The animal is used in research which is meant to benefit human beings. But although it is possible to stop using animals for in research, there is a limited chance of getting animals out of human research activities. Animals are used in research where laws are stating it is unethical to use human subjects. Many people may wonder why laws prohibit the use of human subjects but allow animal subjects. Although different people may argue differently the main reason is what Singer is fighting for which is equality of human lives and animal lives.
Animals deserve better. This does matter, I don’t want animals to die. People need to acknowledge their actions. Don’t let vets test your pets with medicine without permission. This does matter.
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.
Animals testing on cosmetic products is unethical A. Animals testing is cruel to animals 1. Unethical scientists hurt animals physically a. For example, they put the cosmetic and medicines into the rabbit’s eyes, which make their eyes fester, swell, pain and death are generally the end results b. The experimenter take out dog’s vocal chords so that they don’t disturb their testing c. The experimenters will use the animals again for further testing until they die, these nightmare to them will repeat and repeat 2. Unethical scientists hurt animals mentally a. Animals and human are similar in many ways.
These people would also say it is difficult to replace animals because other options are more difficult to test on. According to Ferdowsian, replacing animals in research would be difficult because the biology and genetic make up of animals is too similar to humans to be easy to replicate. Therefore, removing all animal testing would be a difficult task because testing the products on an actual organism allow researchers to mirror the outcomes of the products on humans. However, Ferdowsian continues by stating, “While it is important to acknowledge limitations to non-animal methods remain, recent developments demonstrate that these limitations should be viewed as rousing challenges rather than insurmountable obstacles.” (par. 21)
For example, the anatomic, metabolic and cellular system are not the same between animals and us, for that reason, it make the animals a poor model to get this human benefits (www.animal-testing.procon.org, 3 of 7). At the same time, animal test do not predict results because most of the drugs that are tested on animals failed in humans. Only some drugs were effective when there were tested on them and fail on humans for example the HIV vaccine. It is because the animals are no like humans, they do not have exactly the same system as us, and it causes that when something is testing on them the result automatically fail.
Güray Yiğit 101-1 Mr. Dunkley December 18, 2015 Animal rights and moral obligations on animals are the most disputable issues of our century. The use of nonhuman animals in researches is a subject of concern which is highly concern that everyone is looking at this issue from various different perspectives. Gary L. Francione looks from both of the sides that whether we have rights to use animals laboratory experimentations or not, by giving different arguments about the issue of biomedical research. Many people believe that it is inaccurate how animals suffer unreasonably. In animal testing, nonhuman animals are used to test the possible harms and exhibit the level of effectiveness of products in the fields of medicine and cosmestics.
Animal testing should be banned as empathy is a criteria everyone should have and it is not the most reliable method anymore. This report will focus on three aspects including cruelty towards animals, the reliability and the difference between animals and human, to act as the proof of why animal testing should be banned.
