(2nd main point) Despite the benefits that the animal experiments bring to the society and people, the practice has strong negative implications for the animals as well as for people 1. Even after conducting experiments on animals, the drugs still need to be tested on people, and as the data provided by the National Institutes of Health used by PETA indicate, 95% of medications that are shown safe for animals do not pass human trial (Animal Testing Is Bad Science, 2017). 2. At the same time, according to The Animal Ethics Reader, animal experiments tend to come at human cost, considering the fact that in the case of relying on unreliable animal experiments concerning thalidomide, thousands of children were born without limbs (Armstrong & Botzler,
Since the majority of animals used in biomedical research are killed during or after the experiments, and since many suffer during the studies, the lives and wellbeing of animals are routinely sacrificed for poor research that won’t even help find a treatment for humans. Paul Furlong, Professor of Clinical Neuroimaging at Aston University (UK), declares,"It 's very hard to create an animal model that even equates closely to what we 're trying to achieve in the human." Thomas Hartung, Professor of evidence-based toxicology at Johns Hopkins University, also joined in on the argument asking for alternatives to animal testing because "we are not 70 kg
That is not a justified answer, it is NOT okay to watch as thousands of animals get mutated by lab tests and then have to be destroyed because they are now labeled as "chemical waste". These are living beings with hearts that beat just like our own. Sadly, not everyone cares for the lives of these creatures and many of these monstrous acts continue every day. There are organizations such as PETA that do their best to shut down animal testing facilities and laboratories. Protesters stand outside of testing sites with signs while chanting to let the animals go.
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.
These experiments generally cause the animals pain, distress, harm, and suffering. Furthermore, scientists usually kill the animals after the experiment. Examples of animal testing include forcing dangerous substances into animals’ bodies, exposing animals to radiation, and putting animals in stressful or frightening situations (Cruelty Free International). Many animals in scientific research are subject to unnecessary suffering and horrid conditions because the law does not protect them. Regulation for animal testing in the U.S. needs to be strengthened because the Animal Welfare Act is inadequate, thus allowing for unnecessary suffering for laboratory animals.
coli, mad cow disease and salmonella. Most factories do not care about the quality of meat they produce and that’s why many people around the world are infected by E. coli, and this disease comes from a polluted meat and can cause acute kidney failure. Every year thousands of people die in the US from E. coli which made the scientist do a research and in the article “Modern diseases on the rise of factory farming) it’s mentioned that “the scientist tested over one thousand meats from different factories and they were shocked that 60 percent of this meat is polluted and can cause E. coli” (Geer,2014). The second disease is the mad cow disease and both humans and cows are infected by this disease. This disease happens to cows when they are fed a dead Sheep mixed with straw, and human can get this disease if they eat a cow that used to have mad cow disease.
Güray Yiğit 101-1 Mr. Dunkley December 18, 2015 Animal rights and moral obligations on animals are the most disputable issues of our century. The use of nonhuman animals in researches is a subject of concern which is highly concern that everyone is looking at this issue from various different perspectives. Gary L. Francione looks from both of the sides that whether we have rights to use animals laboratory experimentations or not, by giving different arguments about the issue of biomedical research. Many people believe that it is inaccurate how animals suffer unreasonably. In animal testing, nonhuman animals are used to test the possible harms and exhibit the level of effectiveness of products in the fields of medicine and cosmestics.
I would like these scientists that work in these industries to have a better job than killing animals with chemicals. All these scientists need for their job is to have human test subjects that request it and then can test on them. I highly restrict using animals for this because of how inhuman it is. Humans will be 99.9% the
Professor Charles R. Magel once said, “‘Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are like us.’ Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals and the answer is: “Because they are not like us’. Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction’”. Each year over 100 million animals die in laboratories in the United States (Peta). These deaths alone are just happening in the United States. These innocent animals die because of all kinds of testing and experimentations done on them.
To start off, I think animal testing is wrong. It may benefit OUR lives, but it doesn’t for the animals being tested on. It is cruel, inhumane, and sometimes isn’t necessary for the product. There are alternatives to this and it can cause much pain and suffering to the animals. In my opinion, animal testing is wrong and here are my reasons why I think so.
