Namit Arora, author of the article “On Eating Animals”, harshly captures the inhumane production of meat in America with repulsive imagery and shocking details. Arora, writer at thehumanist.com, reveals the immediate attention that Americans give to their pets and news-famous animals like Molly a runaway cow, yet they neglect to realize the millions of livestock being killed daily. With an accusatory and critical tone Arora condemns the hypocrisy of those who are pro-life for animals, but they still consume meat products. In return, this clarifies the injustice towards these animals for his American readers and global viewers. Namit Arora’s devastating imagery underscores the brutality of American actions towards innocent animals with descriptions such as, “the cow, bellowing miserably and hobbling like a drunk for several seconds before collapsing” and, “...died on the street in a pool of blood.”
The book provided more distressing news of 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” (Constitutional Rights Foundation). The industry 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. The disgusting context of the conditions America’s meat was put through was brought to light, thanks to “The Jungle” and the customers of these businesses were
Feb. 2017. American obesity connects to the poor treatment of animals in factory farms. “Many standard practices in animal agribusiness are so cruel that they’re just out of step with mainstream American values about how animals out to be treated,” says Paul Shapiro, vice president of farm animal protection at the Human Society. This quote shows that animal cruelty in the United States is a poor representative of our nation and gives Americans an image of having low moral values.
The meat and dairy industries have conditioned people to believe that cows, pigs, chickens, and turkeys do not have the same emotions that dogs have therefore it is alright to kill them. The second form is that nonhuman animals are commodities. Nonhuman animals are treated as raw materials for the production or for scientific use. This is speciesism and it is just as wrong and evil as racism, sexism,
According to www.dosomething.org, animal testing is cruel and inhumane. As reported by the Humane Society International, animals in subjects are commonly subjected to force feeding, force inhalation, food and water deprivation, prolonged periods of physical restraint, the infliction of burns and other wounds to study the healing process, the infliction of pain to study its effects and remedies, killing by carbon dioxide asphyxiation, neck-breaking, decapitation, or other means. More than 100 million animals each year have to deal with this cruel and unusual punishment. What if you were the one going through all of these tests and punishments. There are many pros and cons of animal testing.
Finally, animals make bad test subjects because they are very different from animals and humans. Animal experimentation has caused a lot of uproar, but in the end, people can hope more animals will have happy families to go home to, like the “Chicago
For how long will we let innocent animals be tortured by harsh chemicals? Right now there are about 100 million animals around the world that are being tested on in a laboratory. Animal testing is a serious issue that needs to be stopped. Animals are having harsh chemicals from household products being tested on them, and it causes an enormous amount of pain and suffering to these poor animals. This pain needs to end, and only we can end it.
Humans cannot explain making life better for themselves by randomly torturing and murdering millions of animals per day to undergo useless laboratory experiments to test products. Animals must be treated according to animal rights this does not include dumping them into cages like trash and torturing them. After all, aren’t we part of the animal kingdom too? The alternative mentioned above should be used to as it is a more efficient method of testing products since the human physiology is not the same as the animal physiology and it also helps to preserve many animal’s lives. After all of this is said and done can you still support animal testing?
Animal Abuse in Slaughterhouses Jacqi Diffley English 11R D. Hayden April 8, 2016 Diffley1 It will take approximately 2 minutes to read this paper and in that time 360,000 animals will be killed to feed our greedy society. "Over 56 billion farm animals are killed every year by humans and more than 3,000 animals die every second in slaughterhouses around the world"(HFA). Animals should not be treated like objects, like humans, animals have the ability to think, they strive to live, they can show emotions, they can make connections and they certainly can feel pain.
The Golden Rule states to treat others “as we would like to be treated”, but Christine Stevens takes the maxim one step further to ask: what if another animal was in the dominant position, and would we, as humans, want said animal to treat us as it would like to be treated? God gave humans “dominion” over all animals so one could use them as helpers and as food, but humans use other humans as helpers just as animals use other animals as food. All living creatures roam the same God-given earth with the same, single creator. Humans are to respect all things just as much as God, for the world is a reflection of Him. Christine Stevens is correct in her thinking that the Golden Rule should apply not only to humans, but towards both the treatment
Over the years the issues of animal cruelty in factory farms have become a major problem, because of the thriving meat industry. The issues regarding animal cruelty are important because it concerns fundamental moral and economic questions in respect to the way animals are treated, before being brutally slaughtered and later consumed by Americans daily. The topic of animal cruelty raises multiple differing arguments, many concerning religion or possibly a person's geological location in the world. By considering the arguments made by people who think animal cruelty to be morally acceptable, and researching the verified practices taking place on factory farms today, it will be clear that in the United States Animal cruelty is a cruel and unnecessary
Most of America's horses are shipped overseas to countries such as Canada and Mexico for slaughter, However, the slaughter process starts way before the horses arrive to the slaughterhouse. These slaughterhouses will slaughter any horse, from foals to old horses to ponies and donkeys and even pregnant mares, if they are shipped to slaughter they are slaughtered. Some horse owners will outright sell their horses to killer buyers, but most people will take their horse to a local auction where killer buyers bid against other buyers and try to get horses for the lowest price. A killer buyer is a person who travels from auction to auction buying horses at the lowest price specifically for slaughter, then when the unsafe oversized overcrowded trailers
In one of his most controversial articles, Jeremy Rifkin sheds light on a unraveling case of animal exploitation in the food industry. It comes to no surprise that there would be an uproar of protests at slaughterhouses, farms and corporate offices, yet these large industry stay unaffected as the public has truth of what they are hiding. Groups like Animal Liberation Front, Animal Justice Project, and the Humane Society have all the same agenda; none are opposed to humans hunting for food in the wild, there problem is with animals thinking that they just live on this Earth to just be bred and slaughtered. No matter how many humans we overpopulate, we will always must always share this one and only Earth with these animals.
