This annotated biography addresses the arguments against zoos. The reason why I am interested in this topic is that while people claim benefits of zoos, there are some drawbacks existing. Moreover, the articles are also helpful for my argument essay as well as my debate in AR&T class. Overall, throughout this paper, I will illustrate why zoos do not provide a healthy environment for animals and how captive animals suffer from zoos’ mistreatments such as abuse and neglect. Eriksen, L. & Kennedy, M. (2014, February 9).
Is it acceptable to put the lives of creatures in harm for the help of humans? Or to lock them in cramped areas and test on them constantly to benefit us, but cause their lives to become worse? Locked in tiny cages these animals are denied the ability to roam free in an effort to solve health issues of the human race. Every year over 100 million of the animals experimented on die in the laboratories due to this experimentation that supposedly helps to find cures for humans. These cures scientists are finding aren’t even aimed to help animals, and they live horrible lives as a result of these confining living spaces in addition introduction to diseases they wouldn’t naturally develop.
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. It talks about the history of developments in the medical field but denies the fact that animal testing has helped those developments. This information will help me talk about the other side of my argument. It 's good to touch base with the opposing side of a person’s argumentative paper so it shows that you are informed and you know what you are talking about. "Animal Research and Its Benefits to Both Humans and Animals."
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.
As stated in the book named Asian Perspectives on Animal Ethics: Rethinking the Nonhuman, written by philosophical professor Dalal Neil from the University of Alberta and Chloë Taylor, assistant professor in the subject human and animal in the University of Alberta emphasized that violating the animal rights that is against the protection of animals considered as unethical in front of the laws (2). Also killing the animals for food, other decorating items, and musical instruments are categorized under guilt. In addition to this, the killing of animals leads to a drop in the biodiversity of the Earth, which can affect the food chain of the human beings negatively. So anti-theological ideas also agree with the perspective of protecting the animals by respecting them as another living being in the
Imagine an enraged animal rights activist charging toward a scientist in a white lab coat, desperate to free the little mice that are being used as test subjects. Although comical, this scene may be quite accurate when describing the passion that animal lovers have when it comes to the touchy subject of animal testing. For centuries, animal testing has been used in the medical research field, however many are now beginning to question whether it is ethical. Millions of animals are killed per year due to animal testing, so is this practice worth banning? Animal testing is a controversial subject, with supporters pointing out the medical advances that have stemmed from animal research and animal rights activists declaring it cruel and immoral.
As scientific production over time got more advanced, animal testing began to increase in the US. Over 26 million animals in the US are utilized for testing. They are utilized to advance our medical treatments and make sure, that the product is safe, before a human uses it. Animal testing is heartless and brutal and should stop. It´s cruel and brutal , drugs which pass the tests on animals don´t have to be safe for humans, however, the most important fact why it should stop, is that animals differ from our human body and as a result, they are bad test subjects and shouldn 't be a victim of cruel experiments, which don 't really help us humans, they have the right to live and not to be torchered while they are alive.
As a kid the zoo made an amazing impact on my life. Getting to see such wonderful animals up close shaped the beauty of how magnificent the world was in many different perspectives. Sadly, in today’s time I don’t view the zoo as a magnificent place, but more of a money guzzling hell for animals. The amount of animal deaths a year are not caused by natural selection, but mainly caused by animals committing self-harm to the other animals or people. A certain case I’d like to shine light upon is Tilikum the SeaWorld killer whale.
The next theme in George Orwell 's story Shooting an Elephant, is animal cruelty. This theme is probably one of the most obvious themes in this story. George is forced to shoot a majestic Elephant in the head. The only reason he has to shoot, is because the Elephant was captured and forced to work in a factory. It is not the Elephants fault that he went into must in the middle of town.
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”. Do you know who says this quote? It came from a famous person from India, Mahatma Gandhi. Nowadays, many animals are abused and injured. The worst thing is when they become experimental material for chemical products experiments.For example, there is a video that went viral about a monkey with horrific face and one of its hands cannot be moved due to an effect of the chemical testing.
