How many animals have died or been severely injured when being experimented on? Animal testing could kill the cute fluffy things everyone calls animals. Additionally, The people that are testing and harming animals do not even own them so why do they even have rights. Also, after doing these terrible experiments, the scientist say animals are a lot like humans,. To summarize, animal testing is cruel and harmful to the test subjects.
Over 115 million animals are tested in laboratories throughout the United States each year. Typical animals included in these horrific tests include: cats, rats, dogs, rabbits, mice, monkeys, sheep, and birds. Researchers state that about 78,294 animals subjected to cosmetic and medicinal tests face severe pain (PETA, 2017). “Neither Federal nor state law prohibits the transfer of animals to laboratories; they only regulate it” (Favre, 2002). Animal testing is a vile practice of cruelty that is used for testing cosmetic products and research in medicine with regulated inspections; it is often found as unethical and should be
Animal testing is wrong and it is cruel to animals. Each year about five million dogs, cats, rabbits, rats, monkeys, and other animals die in lethal dose tests performed in many states around the United States. During a lethal dose test, the experimental substance is forced into the animal’s throats or is pumped into their stomachs by a tube, sometimes causing death by stomach rupture or from the
Animal testing is cruel and inhumane. According to Humane Society International, animals used in experiments are commonly subjected to force feeding, forced inhalation, food and water deprivation, prolonged periods of physical restraint, the infliction of burns and other wounds to study the healing process, the infliction of pain to study its effects and remedies, and "killing by carbon dioxide asphyxiation, neck-breaking, decapitation, or other means."  The Draize eye test, used by cosmetics companies to evaluate irritation caused by shampoos and other products, involves rabbits being incapacitated in stocks with their eyelids held open by clips, sometimes for multiple days, so they cannot blink away the products being tested.  The commonly used LD50 (lethal dose 50) test involves finding out which dose of a chemical will kill 50% of the animals being used in the experiment.  The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported in 2016 that 71,370 animals suffered pain during experiments while being given no anesthesia for relief, including 1,272 nonhuman primates, 5,771 rabbits, 24,566 guinea pigs, and 33,280 hamsters. 
Imagine being tortured, poisoned, and burned and not being able to do anything about it. This is done to you every single day until you’re dead or not useful anymore. If you are lucky enough you will just be left with scars, eye infections and your skin burned off. This is what animals experience when they are being test on. Animal testing consist of animal experimentation, research, and in vivo testing. It is used to see what will occur to human skin or eyes when the use a certain product, what will occur when they take a certain medicine or for basic biology research. Animal testing is cruel and harming towards animals, millions of them are being used every year. These animals are being water deprived, forced fed, and go through long trials
Unfortunately, animals being put through testing face conditions that are extremely unhealthy. Animals are kept in unsanitary areas with little to no space at all. According to the organization Humane Society International, “animals used in experiments are commonly subjected to force feeding, forced inhalation, food and water deprivation…” (“Animal Testing - ProCon.org”). With no rights at all animals are being forced into harsh medical testings for diseases that can kill or severely injure the animal, such as polio. Through undercover investigation animals located in these labs are living “stressful, monotonous, and unnatural lives of daily confinement and deprivation” (“Animal Testing - ProCon.org”). Not only are these conditions being displayed in large laboratories, but also universities such as University of Oklahoma. During these experiments animals are being“fed chemicals, infected with diseases they would not naturally get, and are treated with no painkillers” (Animal Testing - ProCon.org”). As a result, medical testing facilities should be unable to be this inhumane to animals. Even though these tests may combat a widespread disease, animals should not have to endure this type of treatment at their own will.
Animal testing is a rampant controversial issue in today’s society. Safety tests are conducted with a massive range of chemicals, including: new drugs, vaccines, cosmetics, household cleaners, and packing materials. Approximately 4 million animals have been/will be used in safety tests. Tom Regan, a philosophy professor at North Carolina State University states: “Animals have a basic moral right to respectful treatment… This inherent value is not respected when animals are reduced to being mere tools in a scientific experiment.” Animals that are used in these safety tests are subjected to tests that are often painful or cause permanent damage or death, and they never have the option of participating or not. There are plenty of reasons for understanding
Animal Testing is uncertain and hard. Animals go through a series of tests are very painful, most of the time they are not even given anything for pain. Some product tests require the same painful procedure on a daily basis over a weeks' time. Most tests on animals cause permanent injury or even death. The tests performed on animals are not always reliable. A medicine that may be safe with animals may not be for human beings. For example, aspirin is toxic to cats, so if we were to test this medication on cats, it would not help to determine if this was a safe product for human beings. One alternative to animal testing is human testing, if we are looking to find out if the product works on humans, we should test them on humans. That case "No
The topic of animal testing is a widely controversial topic that is discussed by many people. Some people believe that animal testing has contributed to many advancements in medical treatments and should be continued. Others believe, correctly, that animal testing is cruel and inhumane. Animals testing should be abolished because it is cruel to animals and humans are different than humans.
My names Julia and today i will tell you how Animal testing is both cruel and inhumane, and needs to stop. Many people who support animal testing claim that the Animal Welfare Act is in place to make sure that animals that are used in testing are treated well. This is the only law in the U.S. that regulates animal testing, and only 5% of tested animals are covered by this act. An estimated 26 million animals are used every year just in the United States for scientific and commercial testing, and according to the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals organization, 219 animals are killed every minute in United States labs. Students studying at the University of Wisconsin have conducted stress experiments on mice and rats. These stress experiments
Believe it or not, many of the animals that are used for biomedical research and other forms of testing aren’t even protected. Meaning that many of the animals that are subjected to testing, the Animal Welfare Act does not protect them from such harm. These animals include; mice, birds, fish, and reptiles. Even the animals under the AWA are not necessarily protected because not all animals that are subject to testing are not subjected to what's considered “pain and torture”. To add onto the torture that these animals received, many of the tests done on them have absolutely no purpose in the end. The animal being tested on, for instance, may never satisfy the requirements needed in order for a product to be released to the public. Also, with a simple understanding of the principles of chemistry, it
Being away at college makes you realize all the little things that you miss. Something’s that you did not even know you liked, loved, or would even miss when you are away from home for weeks at a time. My favorite part about coming home is the second I walk through the door, I am greeted by my dog. I always thought she was the biggest pain in the butt that liked to eat my favorite pieces of clothing. But seeing how happy she is when I come home makes me grateful for her. So my love for my dog has made me realize that animal testing is wrong and cruel to animals. I will be going over some of the history of animal testing, giving examples of some of the tests that are being performed, and mentioning some of the laws and acts created. While reading through this think is this test necessary when the animals will be put through cruel procedures. This is why I think that animal testing should be reevaluated to see if it is really worthwhile.
Also animal testing normally will not yield the same results it would on humans. (Zurolo 3) Not only that, animal based tests take too long & are expensive on average. One such case where a drug was safe for animals but not for humans was a drug called Vioxx. In 2005 ,researchers found the drug had a heart protective effect in mice & other animals but the exact opposite in humans and caused heart problems. Once they found out that it caused heart problems in humans they ignored this very fact and instead pointed to the animal tests insisting it was “safe” and the evidence is there. (news -
