Animals have always played a pivotal role in societies throughout the past. Some communities praise animals, while others use them as a symbol of wealth, and some sectors own animals merely as companions. Throughout the article “The Case Against Pets” Francione and Charlton (2015) argue that animals must not be property, and consequently need to gain basic animal rights. As law professors at Rutgers University, and publishers of a book about animal rights, the author’s viewpoints and research are held credible. Nevertheless, despite their arguments being supported by validated and reliable evidence, both authors are biased towards their viewpoints.
Many of the concerns of the ethicality of animal experimentation is understood by the people who still believe animal testing is necessary. Many regulations are enforced on animal studies in an attempt to make them as moral as possible. Additionally, there are also campaigns that advocate the regulation on animal testing “ which advocates the search (1) for the replacement of animals with non-living models; (2) reduction in the use of animals; and (3) refinement of animal use practices “ (Hajar 7). They understand the upset at the idea of animal testing, and they want to appease the masses by keeping the testing as humane as it can possibly be. Even with all of the outcry, there is a large group of people that see animal experimentation as a necessary evil.
This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators. Predators are like robbers of their prey’s life. Once one is caught, predators never let go. While some may argue that being in a zoo will affect an animal’s hunting skills, it’s not always the best plan to let endangered animals free in the wild. It stands to reason that society should continue keeping our animals safe from danger in
Negative impacts of transgenic animals and crops. (9 Biggest Pros and Cons of Transgenic Animals., 2015) & (G., 2015) 1. The use of transgenic animals is unethical: - People that oppose the idea of modifying genes for animals to create offspring that will help the society in some way say that doing this is a major part when going against moral ethics. Additionally, animal advocates are particularly the main people that are not in support for this habit. These people strongly believe that animals also carry rights like humans and it’s against the rights to change their DNA and genetically modify it for human use.
Ban of Animals in Scientific Experimentation Animal experimentation has been manipulated by the media to where many people do not understand the cruelness of the experiments undertaken in labs. Using these animals increases the risk of the species becoming extinct sooner rather than later. New research opportunities have provided genetically modified animals, which are able to more accurately model aspects of diseases, now accounting for almost half of all research animals. Many people agree that there is mistreatment withheld during experimentation and scientists need to treat animals in the best way possible. Animals have the right to not be harmed, even though the Animal Welfare Act does not provide them with even the smallest protection.
Chapter VIII CONCLUSION AND SUGGESTIONS Conservation of wild animals is an essential factor if this planet is to be kept in a productive condition. All living forms play an important role in the upkeep of harmony of nature. Though with gradual advancement of researches and discovery of more and more floral and faunal elements, People have started understanding the intricacy of nature; there are still many life forms in water and on land about that human know nothing. By destruction of them, knowingly or unknowingly, we contribute in causing disturbance in ecosystem stability and jeopardizing our own existence. Many of them are playing a key role unnoticeably in maintaining the balance of nature.
Today I am here to share with you the benefits of adopting pets, but not buying from a pet shop or dog breeders. When you adopt a pet, you are saving a life. There is limited space at shelters, staff members sometimes need to make very hard decisions to humanely euthanize animals that haven 't been adopted in the cases they are terminal and painful illness. One of the most rewarding feelings about adopting an animal from a shelter is knowing you are giving an animal a second chance of a happy, loving life. It is a common belief that animals end up in shelters because they abused or behaved badly.
Conducting these experiments only make animals seem like tools used for the progress of humanity, stripping away the factor that they possess the same right to life we abuse every day. Results are not promised, however pain and distress on the animal’s part is guaranteed which proves that animal testing is an unnecessary evil. Secondly, animal testing is not only dangerous for the animals themselves but also for the humans that consume the drug once it is released in to the market. Animals are physically and biologically different to humans. Only 5-25% of the substances that are harmful to humans are damaging to the
The researcher has addressed issues as to what are the reasons for their stray situation, how they affect the society, apart from the control strategies that can be used for eliminating the stray problem without harming these animals. Researcher has also discussed about different welfare organisations and laws working for the betterment of the stray animals problems, some of NGOs like, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), PFA (People for Animals;), CUPA (Compassion Unlimited Plus Action), STRAW (Stray Relief and Animal Welfare), PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare Society), HAI (Help Animal India), FIAPO (Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations), IARG (International Animal Rescue Goa), IDA (In Defence of Animals), VSPCA (Vishaka Society for Protection and Care of Animals), AWPT(Animal Welfare and Protection Trust), AMTM (Animals Matter To Me), RPR (Red Paws Rescue), HIS (Help In Suffering), TCF (The Corbett Foundation) etc. Some government welfare organisations like AWBI (Animal Welfare Board of India), NIAW (National Institute of Animal Welfare) etc. have also been
CHAPTER 7: CONCLUSION AND SUGGESTIONS 7.1. CONCLUSION OF THE CASE • Here, Supreme Court has considered animal rights are constitutional in nature and hence are constitutional rights. Court also brought to public notice, the fundamental rights of every citizen, expressing concern on article 51A (g). • As a result of this decision, the state revenues of Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra have decreased manifold because a number of people came, attended and many took part in the Jallikattu and bullock cart racing events. • The judgment keeps up the executing of creatures for sustenance by the guideline of need and butchering for religion as need.
