Many scientists say that they can't cure deadly diseases without using animals. I believe that animal testing is very necessary because it is unethical to make people sick on purpose. Most experiments can only be done on animals. As a result of animal testing we have discovered diseases. If you prevent animals from b

Experimenting with animals in the scientific field is causing a problem throughout America. Many Americans do not approve of the abuse and torture of the animals by scientists and other organizations. People do not want the victims of torture (animals) to suffer the side effects of medical testing or die. Things such as visual problems, abnormal sexual behaviors, hearing loses, or and deformities, are viewed as irreplaceable. Testing should be allowed to be done on a small p

Lab experimentation involving animals is inhumane. Animal testing is cruel because an animal s life is just as important as a human s life, people are exploiting animals, and animal testing doesn t show whether or not a product is safe for humans. In laboratories around the world, scientists test a company s product on animals. Why do these companies test their products on animals? Many scientists would argue that it s more cost-efficient to test products on animals than on humans. Othe

Argument Essay Where would we be Without Animal Testing? Is the use of animals in research justified? Should animal experimentation be permitted? Should these animals be liberated? A logical person would say the benefits justify the research. Without animal testing, products would be based on theory. No one would want to use something, which may damage eyes, be poisonous, cancerous, and cause birth defects. Animals used in testing are not from the endangered species list; als

In this day and age, animals are still being used to test products. Millions of animals suffer and die in painful tests to determine the safety of products such as cosmetics, soaps and medicines. The fact is that the test results often don t help prevent or treat human illness or injury. In the past people said that this type of testing was justified, the truth is that this testing should be banned. The testing of cosmetics on animals is cruel. Substances such as eye shadow and soaps are

People today want everything, but that great want turns them blind and ignorant. Today people are determined to outlaw animal testing even though it has eradicated some diseases, controlled others, and saved thousands of lives. These people should look at some of these incredible factors that has come out of testing and then decide if doing away with animal testing is the right thing. Due to the fact that it is still legal, it has helped thousands of people with diabetes. This is becau

Speaking Outline: Animal Testing Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience about the three major ways of how scientific experiments on animal is inhumane. Introduction I. Put yourself into an animal’s position. Imagine that you are being poked and probed by needles for the benefits of humans. II. Animals are being abuse more and more everyday in scientific experiments. III. I have pets and I’m against animal testing, so knowing that animals are used in research is appalling.

What do you think of when you hear the brand names Proctor & Gamble, Gillette, Revlor or Cover Girl? Laundry detergent, soap, lipstick? What you probably don't think of is this. Those three company's, Proctor & Gamble, Gillette, Revlon and Cover Girl, are four of the leading company's who test all their products on animals. Testing on animals is a serious problem, we need a change. Taken from the book Animal Revolution by Richard Ryder, Beagle puppies are forced to inhale smoke. This could b

Over 80 Million animals die a year due to animal testing, yet it is still legal. Letting even 1,000 humans die a year due to laboratory testing would be unethical and illegal, but testing millions of animals is legal and accepted by many people in our society. The fact that animals are not equal to humans doesn't give us the right to allow them to be sacrificed, tortured, and destroyed just so we can wear makeup, perfume, and other beauty products. Animal testing is morally wrong, unethical

The concept that we are all born with inherent rights, such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, is fundamental to our society, particularly to the ideas expressed in the United States Constitution. However, humanity thoughtlessly demeans this principle by denying that animals share these rights. Animals are just as entitled to the rights of living, avoiding pain, and pursuing happiness as humans are. Yet still we exploit and abuse them mercilessly, most often without a secon

The American Medical Association has stated that it believes that research-involving animals is essential to maintaining and improving the health of human beings. They point out that all advances in medical science in the 20th century, from antibiotics to organ transplants, has been achieved either directly or indirectly through the use of animals in laboratory experiments. Animal research is being used to find a cure for AIDS, cancer, heart disease, aging and congenital defects. The AM

Animal Testing…Right or Wrong? In the 1880’s, Louis Pasteur conducted one of the most unpleasant series of animal experiments in the history of the fight against infectious disease. Unable to see the organism that causes rabies with the microscopes available, he convinced a skeptical medical community of the microorganism’s existence and also the possibility of vaccinating against it. He did this by doing work on rabbits and dogs. In 1885, after much heart searching,

...The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men. Leonardo Da Vinci Animal experimentation is such a harsh thing. Many people are unaware as to what goes on in animal testing. Numerous products that are widely used were tested on animals, such as Crest toothpaste, Secret deodorant, Tide detergent, and many others. There are arguments that animal research is based on a false assumption, that results obtained through anima

How to Win The Battle Against The Animal Rights Movement by Russell Hillis Coronation, Alberta December 1996 If you are a pet owner, hunter, livestock owner, equestrian fan, meat eater, or use animals in any other way please read this. Keep in mind that all animal rights groups are opposed to everything you take for granted. Animals rights groups believe that NO animal should be used as a companion, as a food source, as a transportation source or any other way that is useful to hum

Abstract Are we to let concern for the ‘rights’ of pests cost human lives? The answer is a simple one—no. Animal research, although often the subject of debate is a positive thing. Without it, where would the world be? Tests certainly cannot be done on humans, for what human will risk his or her life if there is a more convenient and sensible option. Yes the animals endure pain and, at times, lose their lives but new advances are being made in that field as well. Studies are al

Research on animals is important in understanding diseases and developing ways to prevent them. The polio vaccine, kidney transplants, and heart surgery techniques have all been developed with the help of animal research. Through increased efforts by the scientific community, effective treatments for diabetes, diphtheria, and other diseases have been developed with animal testing. Animal research has brought a dramatic progress into medicine. With the help of animal research, smallpox has b

 Animal Testing “Beauty without cruelty” is the outcry that can be heard from animal right activists around the world. The FDA does not require companies to perform tests on animals but if the cosmetic product contains chemicals that can be seen as toxins, testing becomes a necessity. There are currently thirteen safety tests that are performed on animals. Anti-testing activists deem these unnecessary and consider them to be cruel. “Fourteen million animals are used

When someone mentions animal rights what comes to mind? My mind flashes back to a print ad a couple of years ago with half-a-dozen naked models holding up a sign saying We d rather be naked then wear fur! I was very happy to support their cause to stop people from wearing fur as a fashion statement. But when I found out what the animal rights groups stood for, I disagree with their cause and the steps they took to enforce their beliefs on others. Animal rights is against all animal us

It’s not a new thing. For many centuries scientists and testers in research have used animals of all kinds. Most of the animals are small ones like rodents - rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. Some dogs, cats and a variety of goats, monkeys and rabbits have also been used. The animal rights issue is an emotional one - second only, perhaps, to the abortion debate. For decades the value of animal research has been grossly overrated. Although researchers claim that they depend on animal

Is it right to take the life of an innocent animal? Animals have been burnt, crushed, sliced, electrocuted, tortured with drugs, poisoned with toxic chemicals, and tormented in psychological testing. They do all these test just to make money or find if a chemical is safe for humans. Is this right? Animal testing or vivisection ( as commonly called) promises to cure ills though animal experimentation. If this is stopped, that will be the end of human cures. Dr. Werner Hartinger, MD, surge

English 103 Paper #1 Animal Rights An Argument For Animal Research Medicine has come a very long way since the days when men used to puncture holes into the skull to release tension or evil spirits. In the last one hundred years, for the sake of humanity, numerous vaccinations have been developed, disease and disorders of all types have been prevented, surgical techniques ha

Animal RightsThe side that I take is that I am for animal rights. There are many reasons why I ampro-animal testing. Whoever thinks that this is wrong, well hopefully today I can change your mind about this. The question is would you want them to test human beings instead of mice and rats and that sort of little kind of rodents? If they do make a mistake and test humans and for some reason the substance they are testing is not right then they would be killing a human being which is ill

Animal Abuse Animals are sometimes treated as friends but are also treated as enemies. We keep them as pets, but if it suits us, we slaughter them in their own habitats and in slaughterhouses. If we could kill them in a quick and pain-free way, like a special injection, which is not harmful to us, it would be a lot nicer to the animals being killed. However, the scenes in slaughterhouses are ones of bullying and torture. The people hurt the animals in the most horrific ways

Animal rights activists continually oppose the medical research that involves animals as test subjects. Too many people have come to the conclusion that medical researchers are cruel and inhumane. In many cases the good of the research is overlooked and the bad is used. Even though many people may believe that animal research is morally wrong, animal research should continue because it is critical to helping heal human lives. There is not yet an available alternate to animal research.

Every year, nearly one hundred million animals die in research laboratories at the hands of curious scientists who perform outdated and inaccurate tests that prove no benefit to humans or animals. I believe vivisection, medical testing on animals, should be banned. Before these animals die they are routinely burned, scalded, poisoned, starved, given electric shocks, and deliberately inflicted with deadly diseases. Their eyes are surgically removed, and their brains and spinal cords are dama

There are many different categories that fall under the term Animal Rights , but this essay will only discuss a few. Although all of the issues having to do with animal rights are equally important, the ones discussed in this essay are the major ones. Animals have just as many rights as we do. We do not need to use real animals for school dissection. There is no need for humans to use real animal fur anymore. Animals do not need to be used for lab testing for chemicals, household cleaning p

Society: The Great Ape Project Animals are a lot smarter than anyone gives them credit. Chimpanzees and apes are some of the smartest animals on this planet. They have feelings that are very prominent in the way they act, and they have a memory, which are something other animals on this planet lack. These animals are put in cages and either is forced to perform or are used for scientific testing. At the beginning of "The Great Ape Project" this is said "We demand the extension of the

Animal Testing For centuries, animals have been used in medical research. Since 1875, animal experimentation has been an on going heated debate on whether experiments on animals are ethical. At the very start, the movement against animal testing focused mainly on the "inhumanity of hurting and killing living beings for experimental discovery" (Achor 95). However, in these few decades, scientific invalidity was one of the focusing claims to object to vivisection, which is an "injuriou

Medical research is a lengthy process that involves numerous undertakings. Without taking the risks and paying the costs, new findings would not be accomplished. Animal research has been especially beneficial to the field of medicine. Testing on animals should be accepted in the world of scientific studies because it would provide research for diseases, benefit all mankind, surgical procedures, and finally it would save a lot of time. First, animal testing would provide scientists with new w

For the past 20 years, there has been an on going heated debate on whether experiments on animals for the benefit of medical and scientifis research is ethical. Whether it is or in't, most people believe that some form of cost-benefit test should be performed to determine if the action is right. The costs include: animal pain, distress and death where the benefits include the collection of new knowlegge or the development of new medical therapies for humans. Looking into these differen

Many humans use animals for testing each year. Animal testing is when the animals are put through something or injected to see how they react to what medical research they have been used for. Animals are used to find cures for diseases or to test drugs that have mild side effects. They are also used to test materials for cosmetic research. Except for severely limited medical research, animal testing should be outlawed. Animal testing endangers the animal s lives and may cause serious side

ANIMAL TESTING Question: Which personal care, non-pharmaceutical products are required by law to be tested on animals? Answer: None Yes that is right. There is NO law that requires companies to test their personal care and household products on animals before selling them to consumers! Just picture this. Captured from the wilderness with his mother a young chimpanzee all of about 6 months is imprisoned in a cage, in a dark lonely room. Strange people (at it seems to him) with white c

Animal Experimentation Can you imagine, your beloved dog being immobilized in a stockade and having concentrated drops of Mr. Clean put in his eyes over and over, just so some scientists can see who long it will take for it to eat his eyes? Or maybe your bunny, having clumps of hair burned off while testing the acidity level of a new shampoo? It is a disgusting thought. Unfortunately this happens every day to animals all over the U.S. I am strongly against animal experimentation because the

Animals have been used in medical research for centuries. Most of the animals used for research are rodents such as rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. Some dogs, cats and a variety of goats, ferrets, pigeons, monkeys and rabbits are also used .The struggle against this tyranny is a struggle as important as any of the moral and social issues that have been fought over in recent years. Animal rights are an emotional issue, second only perhaps, to the bitter abortion debate. For decades the value

Many humans use animals for testing each year. Animal testing is when the animals are put through something or injected to see how they react to what medical research they have been used for. There are three very important reasons why animals should not be used for testing harmful or dangerous materials. One of these is that testing and its use is trivial in the cosmetic industry. The second reason is that animals have rights and animals can feel pleasure and pain just as humans do.

PSYCHOLOGOY 101 Chapter 2 Biology and Behavior Animal testing is not a problem in today’s society because it is beneficial to humans. It seems unethical to put animals through such pain and torture, but if we stopped it completely there would be a large amount of human lives lost. How could this be? The further advancements in medical and technological science is inevitable. Therefore, if the testing must be done to learn more about the brain and body, which species (animals or man

Every year, millions of animals suffer and die in painful tests to determine the safety of cosmetics. Substances such as eye shadow and soap are tested on rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, dogs, and other animals, despite the fact that the test results don t help prevent or treat human illness or injury. Cosmetics are not required to be tested on animals and since non-animal alternatives exist, it s hard to understand why some companies still continue to conduct these tests. Cosmetic

Animal Farm George Orwells Animal farm is a book about stuck up pigs who illuminates the range of human experience, from love to hate. There are seven commandments, these seven are broken and changed, this causes destruction and hate. One night during Animal Farm Major "the head pig" ordered a meeting for all animals, this meeting was his last and had important things to say, laws and commandments, the seven were clear to not be broken like the major said. These commandments were, 1

Aids Testing on Animals “Between 25 and 50 million animals are killed in American laboratories each year, this include mice, rats, cats, ferrets, monkey, and etc.(American Anti-Vivisection Society)” Since the medical skill has been developed, numbers of drugs have been invented to fight the diseases that human beings get. In order to make sure that those medicine works, the medicines need to be tested on animals first. When a new disease is found, thousands of animals are put in

Establishing and Upholding Animal Rights in the US How often do we hear of people committing violent crimes against other people? It sometime seems that we cannot turn on the television without being bombarded with reports of violent crimes in our society. Yet, what the media usually neglects to cover are violent crimes committed against animals. In June, Jonathon Moore and George Allan Pettingill of Springfield, Arkansas were charged with a criminal offense after reportedly hurling an 11-we

Animal Experimentation The United States government should come up with alternatives to animal experimentation. The use of animals in research, testing, and education is an issue of increasing concern to the American public. An increasing number of adults and teenagers are concerned about the welfare of laboratory animals. Animal testing, or vivisection, is the testing of cosmetics, drugs, household products and many other everyday items on animals. Vivisection literally means cutting ali

Cloning Could cloning become the thing of the future? Or is it the start of a new generation? To some, cloning could give back a life, or a life of fun, happiness, and freedom. For others it could mean destruction, evil, or power. Throughout this essay you should get a better idea of cloning and the concerns about it. You will hear about the good and also the good brings the bad. Most of this information could be what is to come in the future. What is cloning? How did it all get sta

Drug Testing in the Workplace When the question of drug testing in the workplace arises, many problems tend to come along with it. For employers, the solution is simple; drug tests are mandatory for employment. When it comes to employees, however the response might be more along the lines of It s none of your business or That s a violation of my rights . Yet on both sides, there will always be a set of pros and cons. Let s take a look at the employer s argument first. It is their comp

The Problem with Testing Drugs on Animals Every year is that nearly 100 million animals die in research laboratories at the hands of curious scientists who perform outdated and inaccurate tests that prove no benefit to humans or animals. Before these animals die, they are routinely burned, scalded, poisoned, starved, given electric shocks, addicted to drugs, subjected to near freezing temperatures, dosed with radioactive elements, driven insane, deliberately inflicted with diseases su

The rights of animals have long been a highly controversial issue. Humans have always seen themselves as being superior to animals, and as having the right to exploit animals in any way they choose, even to use them as subjects in often very cruel experiments in the progress of Medicine and Science. Human welfare is largely dependent on animals in providing the basics of food and clothing. There is no need, however, to keep those bred for meat in such appalling conditions, as in the case of pi

Give and Take Where do you stand on the mistreatment of animals? Are you completely against hurting animals, so much so that you would never eat meat or use them for research to cure deadly human diseases? Animals are not objects that hold no rational thoughts. They are living beings, but when you look at the big picture, no one is willing to give up eating meat or risk loosing their child in place of an animal because animal research was outlawed. Since the beginning of man, it was thought
