The information connects to the beginning thesis, by how it shows that animal testing is just an excuse to hurt animals, because humans test on animals that will likely need a different cure than humans. While some animals may also benefit from the results of animal testing, there are some drugs, like aspirin, that will kill the animals tested on, yet aspirin still helps humans. The point of animals testing most of the time is to help humans, and helping the animals tested on is a possible side effect. Why do humans hurt animals and say it may help an animal, but hurting the animals is really for helping humans. As well as only finding cures for animals and wasting resources, humans also still have an immense risk when using the drug tested on
list of cons of animal rights Prevents safety testing Is it enough to save animal lives when the cost is a human life placed in danger or lost? new products and medications that could save people but are considered harmful until tested on certain subjects will never be used if animal testing is no longer allowed. It would be even more immoral if test subjects used or human themselves. This may have been going on with clinical trials, but the only difference is that medications used in these trials have already been tested on animals and are considered safe. Stunt research development Animal testing open doors in research of new products and medication that will significantly speed up the development in the medicine field.
This is true because not all experiments on transgenic animals are effective. Additionally, critics also pose the idea that they are concerned about the long run effect of vaccines an medicine produced by these transgenic animals. 3. They are victims themselves: -
Human cloning is ethically wrong; there are many risks involved, which will lead to detrimental effects on human society. Before going into my points, I would like to talk about what cloning is. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute, cloning is “a number of different processes that can be used to produce genetically identical copies of a biological entity.” (Green, genome.gov). There are three types of artificial cloning: gene cloning, reproductive cloning, and therapeutic cloning. Gene cloning is the production of copies of genes and DNA.
Genetic engineering is a potentially and powerful very dangerous tool. To alter the succession of nucleotides of the DNA can have extremely ill. Genetic modification should be banded by law as its future is unknown, genetically modified food in unsafe and it is against humans’ rights (unethically). Nobel Prize winning, George Wald Harvard professor and biologist, wrote in 1976: “Recombinant DNA technology [genetic engineering] faces our society with problems unprecedented not only in the history of science, but of life on the Earth.” According to a study, it is 83% risky. In addition, the consequences problems may not appear for many years, which will make huge health problems. “Germline genome alterations are permanent and heritable, so very, very careful consideration needs to be taken in advance of such applications.” (Carroll, 2015).
Mahatma Gandhi once stated, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” In today’s world, animals are being used to control scientific variables in experiments including drug testing, the creation of cosmetics, and treatments for diseases. Animal testing can be beneficial in the aspect that it has contributed to many life-saving cures and treatments. However, on the other hand, animal testing can be seen as cruel and inhumane because of the way animals are treated. Animal testing is more complicated in the aspect that it is not just simply putting the end product on the animals, but torturing the defenseless animals with relentless experiments causing an unknown amount of pain. For example,
PETA is a strong opponent of this research, believing that the money used to fund these experiments could be used to save animals facing the possibility of being euthanized in shelters (as opposed to undergoing viable abuse as test subjects). Restrictions concerning the execution of experiments have not been widely discussed, resulting in weak stipulations. PETA asserts that researchers must take a safer route and put their funds in trusted institutions that protect the lives of animals. In addition, doctors go to great measures to attempt to save people with genetic diseases, and many do not succeed. There are several instances where the patients die from the side effects from the formidable treatments made out of desperation and those who do survive often have mixed results.
Advancement in genetic research has enabled setting up of laboratories in various countries for trials of human cloning from somatic cells. Some institutions argue that they have successfully cloned human embryos although such claims are not yet proven (Ayala 8879). Genetic engineering and technologies aim at recreating human beings a process that poses an ethical dilemma despite being of high application in various medical fields such as in animal cloning. The first clone on sheep named Dolly was in 1997, which was estimated to have a success rate of between one and four percent (Kuhse 19). However, in human beings, the percentage may lower and may interfere with the natural biological order of life.
31 Jan. 2018. The definition of animal testing is the procedures that involve living animals for the purpose of research. Some methods of animal testing include exposure to drugs and chemicals, genetic manipulation, water and food withdrawal, infliction of injuries, etc. This article is extremely biased. It tells all about the negative details of animal testing and the harming to the animals, but it doesn’t include the benefits of animal testing.
According to crueltyfreeinternational.org, “90% of drugs fail in human trials despite promising results in animal tests - whether on safety grounds or because they do not work.” This means that the majority of the results that scientists get are useless. These results only work on animals and not humans, in which the tests were meant for. It is completely and utterly useless to test animals for the benefit of humans, if the conclusions that scientists get do not benefit humans. On the other hand, there have been many medical breakthroughs from the results of animal testing. Nearly every medical breakthrough involves animal testing and research.
