They will test the value of new shampoo products by using rabbits as their tests subjects usually. In doing so the rabbit has to have its eye held open by clips so they can see how it is affecting the eyes; the rabbits stay like this for days without being able to blink or wash the materials out of their eyes. 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. Animals go through so many cruel things, because of the cosmetic industry that is allowing it. [animal-testing.procon.org] Researchers in Aston University have made it known that it is not worth taking the lives of these animals for testing, because the things we’re trying to make happen with human bodies is very different from the animal body.
Animal Liberation By: Peter Singer “Animal Liberation” is a novel highlighting the ignorance of people about what animals go through in order to fulfill whatever humans need. Whether it is meals or experimentation, millions of animals suffer each year. The author really goes the extra mile to try to make the reader see his point of view by being descriptive in his explanations of the types of pain animals feel. For example, Bunnies are used to test products for eye irritation by placing them in a chamber with only their heads exposed and dropping the product into their eyes. The eyes of the bunnies often become irritated, infected, and even blind.
In fact many of the MOST important advances in health are attributable to human studies. These include the relationships between cholesterol and heart disease, smoking and cancer. Harming animals in the name of science is morally indefensible, but there are also important scientific problems with using animals that cannot be ignored. Ethically speaking, to deliberately torture and take the life of another creature, be they human or nonhuman, is a
It is definitely remarkable that countless “terminal” illnesses were treated because of researches involving animal testing. People escaped death from diseases such as tuberculosis, cholera, and so on within a short period of time. Millions have been saved and the credit goes to animal testing. The general public holds negative opinion towards animal research even if they realise the benefits of it. Many develop this attitude because of the photos of rats and dogs in terrible status which are all over the Internet.
B. Meaning – The British Royal Society argues that almost every medical achievement in the 20th century relied on the use of animals in some way (Gershoff, 2009). If the use of animals in experimentation is eliminated, there are many risks in the future for humans and nonhumans. “Those who oppose the use of animals say that alternate scientific methods can achieve the same or better results” (Gershoff, 2009, p. 3). Other methods of investigation provide useful information and the search for changes to animal experimentation is a main concern at the National Institutes of Health and medical research organizations all over the world.
When the pigs came into power they had seven commandments by which all of the animals need to live. Because the pigs had ultimate power they were easily corrupted. Just trying little things to see if anybody would notice or question. Then they tried something a bit more drastic and these behaviors fed on themselves, and by the end of the novel the creators of the commandments had broken all of them. Just to protect their coveted treasure or expand it.
Remember do NOT buy products from those companies that abuse animal rights. You would be surprised by how many products are tested on poor little creatures. When I finished reading the list, I was shocked and ashamed since I have used several of these brands. Some include: Axe, Colgate, Aveeno. Coppertone, Neutrogena even designer brands like Dolce and Gabbana.
Swift also sneaks in insults to other cultures and his own all while comparing humans to animals and making more disgusting suggestions every sentence for the uses of babies. He continues to use statistics and then asks the reader to come up with a better
The very first thing that comes to a person’s mind when the subject of animal experimentation is mentioned ,is a picture of a sad puppy or a kitten being tortured by evil scientists who want to hurt it for their own pleasure. But this is only us humans being sensitive to Cruelty it’s not like that at all. The truth is there are two main categories when it comes to animal experimentation; the first one is Chemical Experimentation. The environmental protection agency (EPA) is an agency that protects the environment in the United States and “has broad authority to issue regulations designed to gather health/safety and exposure information on, require testing of, and control exposure to chemical substances and mixtures.” (Epa.gov) Every chemical must be tested before its being imported into the United States to keep people in the country safe from bio terrorism or disease. Scientists test new drugs, materials and chemicals on Animals in order to determine the toxicity level of it and decide if it is safe or not before releasing the chemicals into human hands, if at all.
It is inhumane to keep animals in small enclosures like that where they wouldn’t even get room to stretch their legs or get the chance to behave like they would naturally in the wild. The more intelligent animals (dogs, cats, pigs, primates etc) suffer from severe cases of loneliness because they lack the rights to run around and be free. How would you feel if you could not run around in a free environment? My second argument is using animals for testing cosmetics. It is estimated that over 1 million animals are killed due to companies that test their products on animals and those companies tell us that they use animals to test the safety of their products.
