Approximately 26 million animals are used every year in the United States alone for research and commercial testing (“Background of the Issue” 1). For years, legislators have debated the pros and cons of animal testing, and laws were passed to attempt to fix the inhumane treatment of the cute, innocent testing subjects, the animals. Although the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) was revised numerous times, “the species most commonly used in experiments (mice, rats, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians) comprise 99% of all animals in laboratories” and are the animals that are specifically exempted from protection under the act (“Experiments on Animals” 2). A simple fix to animal cruelty during testing is to use alternative methods since human and animal bodies already vary greatly. For years, animal testing was the best option because there was no alternative to testing on a living, whole-body system; however, in the age of technology, there is no reason for millions of animals to be killed due to the severity of the testing. Therefore, animal testing should be banned because alternative methods provide more accurate results since human bodies are very different than animal bodies; furthermore, animal advocacy organizations should promote cruelty-free products more so customers know what to purchase and use.
Protesting has been going around the world for many of years. Throughout many years of people boycotted agents a situation they believe, if a wrong or right. One of the biggest areas on where people gather around and protest is when they’re fighting agents animals testing. As well as the years has pasted on protesting on animals, it became more sires in increased in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Many cosmetics companies been testing on animals throughout the years there is also many that have not. The cosmetics line LUSH has been fighting over animals testing for over thirty years and will continue to fight for their right according to the company. When LUSH had first started the company had divided they didn 't ever wanted to test their product on animal. Not only fighting agents animals testing LUSH is also ego friendly; everything they use its plants, oil, and recycle. Since LUSH having to be agents animal testing, policies had created to work with the companies of cosmetics to end the cruelty of animals. The LUSH company say “ This can be done without animal testing …” and it true. LUSH is a company that all there product dills with ones skin to make them fell and look beautiful. If LUSH can test their products other than animals and still make your still looking good then, other cosmetics companies can do the same.
For many years, the field of science has used animals in medical experiments worldwide, because of this innocent animals are being killed everyday. They are being tested with new drugs, new treatments, and by many makeup companies. Connecticut recently celebrated the passage of the “Beagle Freedom Law”, a law that requires laboratories to work with charities and rescue groups to find homes for research cats and dogs. Animals are being tested so humans do not have to be but animal tests do not reliably predict results in human beings, although animals are the closest thing to humans. Most experiments involving animals are flawed, wasting the lives of innocent animal subjects. Over 100 million animals suffer a year from testing. Testing animals is a lot more expensive than alternative methods and it is wasting government research dollars. Animal testing is not only a bad idea, but it is also inhuman and it should not be tolerated. The FDA should stop allowing animal testing. An animal does not give out the same results on a test than a human would.
In history, animal experimentation has played a significant important role in leading to new discoveries and human benefit. However, what many people tend to forget are the numbers of animal subjects that have suffered serious harm during the process of experimentation. Each day across America innocent animals are used as test subjects for products that have little to no relevance importance. Animal testing has had many negative issues arise in society in a negative way. Debating over the animal rights movement has raised many questions and concerns for years. There is an ongoing controversy regarding if companies should stop testing their products on animals. Although animal research has been the cause of many medical breakthroughs, is it morally and ethically right to put animals in these kinds of situations? This is one of the underlying questions that must be solved before it is too late. When considering how truly reliable the results of animal test are, and the expense of testing will help bring new light to the problem. By simply passing a policy will not only address this issue, will help better products and medicine in the future.
Animal testing should end because its harms the animals, other things can be tested instead of animals, it costs more to test animals, and the results in animals can be different then the results in humans which can be really bad and it can harm humans. It also can cause birth defects to babies who are born and people think it will work on babies because it works on animal babies.
Irrelevant of one’s opinion as to the procedural methods utilized in animal testing, the simple fact of the matter is
When using cosmetics or common house cleaning products many do not realize that they are supporting animal cruelty. Animal testing is among the most disturbing experiments being done today. Vivisection is the practice of animal experimentation. It can include administering drugs, infecting animals with diseases, poisoning for toxicity testing, brain damaging, maiming, blinding, and other painful invasive procedures. Animal testing has protocols that cause severe suffering such as long-term social isolation, full-body restraint, electric shocks, withholding of food and water, or repeated breeding and separating infants from mothers. It is using millions of animals in ways that cause distress or death to test the safety of drugs and
Every year an estimated hundred million animals, in the United States, are subjected to undergo painful and invasive procedures. The majority of these experimental animals spend their entire lives in cages and eventually die from the insensitive tests that they are forced to endure. Animals that are tested in laboratories typically include dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, rats, rabbits, pigs, sheep, mice, monkeys, and many more. Ninety-nine percent of the animals that are experimented on are birds, mice, and rats. All of which are not protected by the Animal Welfare Act.
In the United States, over 100 million animals are used for experimentation and testing every year. Most of these animals will either live a lifetime of misery and neglect or face death. A copious amount of controversy surrounds animal experimentation because of the way it is performed. Animal testing is done to test products for harsh chemicals, for medical research, and educational purposes.
“An estimated 26 million animals are used every year in the united states for scientific and commercial testing” (ProCon.org). We are rapidly using up the earth’s supply of small animals. “A 2011 poll of nearly 1,000 biomedical scientists conducted by the science journal Nature found that more than 90% agreed that the use of animals in research is essential (ProCon.org). Right now, millions of mice, rats, rabbits, cats, dogs, and other animals are locked up in cages and are getting killed for scientific tests to create products and medicines. Thus, animal testing is cruel and inhumane to be experimenting on animals, there are alternative methods available to researchers to replace animal testing, and that animals are so different from human beings that research on animals often yields irrelevant results.
When people think of cheating they think of copying off a smart student in school, or having somebody else do their homework. However in the livestock industry cheating happens in many other ways. Obviously, the main goal when showing an animal is to win, or make the sale at their respective shows. How far will exhibitors actually go to win a show though? In recent years there has been controversy at many major livestock shows over drug testing, and animals testing hot for illegal drugs which means when tested there was traces found of illegal substances within the animal. This is not the only way people have been caught cheating though; some exhibitors have switched animals with another exhibitor prior to the show. Showing an animal at the county fair or state fair is supposed to be an educational experience where kids learn responsibility and hard work, not getting placed last in class because somebody cheated to win.
How would you feel if millions of humans were tested on? Millions of animals are testing on yearly to see if your everyday products are safe for humans. Animal testing happens on mice, rats, dogs, cats, and many other animals. By testing on the animals it causes the animals pain, suffering, distress, harm, and even death. Testing produces on animals needs to be stopped because it causes harm to animals, it's a bad way to see if the produce actually works, and it's unnecessary.
Some of the world's most beloved and beautiful animals are exposed to brutal, intolerable conditions each day- merely for the benefit of human kind. In fact, over 100 million animals are poisoned, burned, immobilized, abused, and utterly stripped of their freedom as they undergo multiple commercial and scientific tests every year. These tests are physically and emotionally demanding on the most harmless of creatures, including dogs, cats, and rabbits. Animals are subjected to severe and intense situations where they have no way of escaping. The Animal Welfare Act saves certain animals from extreme abuse, however the amount of protection given to each animal is very minimal ("Animal Testing"). Because the Animal Welfare Act is unable to protect nearly 100 million animals in experimentation processes from inhumane treatment, commercial and scientific testing in laboratories should be banned when cheaper alternatives can be used as replacement.
For many years there has been a debate whether animal testing should be banned or continued. Many scientists believe that a human’s life is superior to an animal’s life. Others, like me, believe that animal testing is good for medicine use and not cosmetics. In my prospective, as well as many others will agree, beauty is far less important than a living creature. For centuries now, animal testing has helped scientist develop new cures for diseases, health conditions and even the development of new technology. Animal testing has been beneficially for human beings. Believe it or not, you or someone you know might have used some medications that have been previously tested on animals.
