Drug manufacturers test medications on animals after they have been injected with viruses and diseases to see if the medications work on the animals. There are many companies who use animal research to test their products; unfortunately these organizations do not look for alternatives besides animal testing. If these atrocious acts were committed outside laboratories, they would be felonies. But animals suffer and die every day in laboratories with little or no protection from cruelty. It is immoral to
Abeni Mebane Pam Pearce Eng. 090-013 12/4/08 Stop Animal Testing In the Cosmetic Industry Have you ever wondered how many animals suffer in labs in the cosmetic industry? This is an issue that gets over looked and no one cares about. The estimate of animals killed and experimented in the United States every year is one hundred and fifteen million animals. I understand medication being tested on animals but the cosmetic industry should not test on animals because its animal cruelty, the testing is not accurate, and there are other ways to test products.
At least seventy percent of the worlds leading cosmetic companies are testing their products on animals. The Animal Statistics show that at least 12 million animal testing experiments were conducted in Europe during the year 2009. But why do companies do this, don’t they know the harm they are doing to the animals? Not only animal testing is wrong, but also inhumane and should be stopped. Each year in the United States, an estimated 70 million animals were blinded, scalded, force-fed chemicals, genetically manipulated, and otherwise hurt and killed in the name of science.
“Most animals in these facilities are forced to endure physical and psychological abuse for months if not years on end, deprived of the ability to perform behaviors inherent to their species, and housed in overcrowded facilities with insufficient food, water and natural light” (Animal Cruelty). From here on out, animal abuse continued to grow throughout the years, as sad as it
Rhetorical Analysis of The Evil of Animal Rights “The Evil of Animal Rights” is an article that was written by Alex Epstein and Yaron Brook. The article addressees the medical testing that is being done on animals. The author of the article talks about the medical advances that have been done using animals as testing. Without the animals, there wouldn't be as many new medicines and new cures that there are now. The author also talks about the protesters and the problems they have given to the companies that have any relation with animal testing.
Each year, throughout thousands of animals are dying or being ridiculously abused. In 2007, there were 1,880 animal abuse cases in America. 1,212 of those cases were about dogs, 337 were about cats, and 470 were other animals. Harmless, innocent animals are being hurt, and being very harmed but crucial people with no intention of what they are really doing. They are beating poor animals senseless.
Pets, animal performers, animals in zoos, even the animals that are being raised for slaughter are mistreated up until death. James Rachels author of “Vegetarianism and ‘The Other Weight Problem’” provides us with a look at why eating meat is morally wrong. Rachels offers many arguments as to why we should not eat meat, but none stronger than the mistreatment of the animals. Even though humans know animals are raised for slaughter we overlook it, but “readily identified with a tortured dog or horse and respond with great sensitivity”
Many argued that alternatives for testing products should be utilized. Although there are other alternatives, to this day, animals are being experimented on for people’s needs such as cosmetics and medical purposes. Animal testing for cosmetic purposes first started in 1933 when a woman used Lash Lure mascara, it burned her eyes, which made her blind and eventually led to her death. The Food and Drug Administration therefore passed a law called the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act. Two common tests performed on animals to determine the toxicity of a chemical are the LD50 and the Draize test.
>In order to help you better understand the importance of why wild animals do not make good pets, I will explain how you can't take the “wild” out of wild animals, the dangers of having them, and share stories of why it doesn't work. >>First, I will explain why you can't take the “wild” out of wild animals. >According to Webster's dictionary.com >A wild animals is defined as an animal living in a state of nature; not tamed or domesticated. >Wild animals aren't domesticated simply by being captive born or hand-raised. It's a different story with cats and dogs, who have been domesticated by selective breeding for desired traits for over thousands of years.
People have yet to realize that their favorite type of deodorant or those good-smelling fragrances they like to put on were once tested on animals. These animals are forced to swallow or inhale large quantities of a test substance or endure the pain of having chemicals applied to their sensitive eyes and skin (Peta). Many times the results of animal tests are often not applicable to humans, but even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you. Many testing centers keep such animals out of their natural surroundings, until time to experiment on them. Throughout that time these animals become so unadapt to their new surroundings, they become less likely to return to their natural state which gives those experimenting more reason to test them.
