As animals underpopulated, us humans will take up more land to benefit ourselves. As we are taking up more land, we are taking away land from the animals that are left. This confines them, and also puts humans at risk for injury. If animals can see that humans are becoming more selfish over land, the animals may become more hostile and hurt humans. I can see how people would think this is okay--they just want to show off how “cool” they are.
In this article, the focusing point is on endangered species. I will state the ways animals can be in dangers. I will identify the pros and cons of endangered specie act in U.S. I will be investigating the drawbacks if a specie is extinct… Endangered specie is the species which are going to be extinct soon. We all know that there are lots of animals we are losing right now, but what’s the exact number of the endangered specie.
The Utilitarian belief is that every person suffers and when they do suffer they should be able to make the decision to live or to have someone kill them. When no one else is harmed and it is the decision of the person in pain then it is acceptable. If a Utilitarian read the article they would view the euthanasia program as nauseating. A utilitarian is only supporting of euthanasia when it helps end the agony of living anymore as determined or requested by the person in affliction. However, the victims of the euthanasia program had no say in whether they wanted to live or die, they just were killed.
Nothing is wrong with bringing a terrifying hairy 6 ton mammoth back from the dead, right? I believe that raising extinct species from the dead is a dreadful idea. Many examples are from disease carriers to environment changing. To start, “Animal welfare: People could be exploiting animals for solely human purposes, and may cause individuals of the de-extinct species harm,” stated by Breanna Draxler author of 5 Reasons to Bring Back Extinct Animals (And 5 Reasons Not To). This was to shows how some of these animals would be hunted if they were come back to life.
The wealthy shape environmental policies, controlling industrial and agricultural output and land usage, just to name a few. A mass extinction cannot be prevented without persuading those with wealth. However, David Quammen’s Harper’s Weekly article “Planet of Weeds” views the wealthy not as drivers of change, but as fugitives from the Earth’s harsh environment that the wealthy themselves had created. The text effectively argues that a mass extinction is a possibility and even a reality by employing ethos, logos and pathos to logically and emotionally appeal to its audience. Yet, the text stops short of calling for an action, because such action will be impotent and unlikely to be favored by the wealthy when they will not face much consequences.
There are people who want to unburden themselves of the elderly & will simply euthanize them for their own benefit, not the elders. Another issue with legalizing euthanasia would be that society would be too easily convinced to support it. "It would be hard to devise procedures that would protect people from being persuaded into giving their consent." (Foot, p. 112) There is no possible way to know if a person is giving their consent because they actually want to or maybe because they were persuaded to do
Some people may say that Antigone chose to die. This is not right because Antigone was not choosing death, she was choosing to be loyal to family. Creon decided to make a law in which Polyneices, Antigone’s brother could not be buried. If someone broke this law they would be stoned to death in public. Antigone did not think it was right, and decided to bury him saying “ But I will bury him; and if I must die, I say that this crime is holy: I shall lie down with him in death…”.
Antigone buried her brother, even though it was against the law, and Billy murdered someone. In the stories, the punishments for both of the offences, was death. Legally, both Antigone and Billy Budd were in the wrong, but Antigone’s actions could be considered morally right. Antigone followed what she believed was right in the eyes of the gods. She thought that it was more important to obey the gods than Creon, because Creon was an earthly king, and his punishment would not last as long as a punishment from the gods would.
Outline Slaughterhouses Thesis- slaughterhouses should close down across America, because stuns don't always take the pain away from death, and not all slaughterhouses follow USDA rules correctly. Slaughterhouses should close down, because stuns don’t always work effectively. One method of stunning is by using electric bolts Stunning can be “skull penetrating”, meaning stunning the brain directly. Not all stunners work correctly, leaving the animal conscious for death. After stunning, it is okay for an animal to be dragged to where it will be killed.
The two hunter’s feel pity towards the eggs that they see, as they feel that most of them are going to be killed before the animal inside is even able to see the light of day, however this is ironic, as these hunter’s themselves are here to steal that light from the animals, which is made even worse when considering that the eggs would be killed for nourishment, while the humans will be killing for pleasure. The poet makes this irony even more effective in creating a sense of ethics in the reader by having the title of the poem as The Wild Duck’s Nest, even though that is not what the poem is about. Randolph Stow uses animals to successfully convey deeper emotional and philosophical thoughts and to create a sense of morality and ethics with the subject matter, theme and the literary devices. Through this, the reader realizes the message: humans are the ones to be afraid of, as the creatures that humans often fear are even more frightened of
