Conducting experiments on animals for medical improvement has always been a highly controversial issue. Animal rights organisations such as PETA question the legitimacy of it, arguing that it is cruel and unacceptable while the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki states clearly that human trials should be preceded by tests on animals if possible. In this case, though I commiserate the experimented animals, I support animal testings as they are vital to medical advancements for the sake of human race. Nearly all medical breakthroughs over the recent decades were based on the ground of animal testing. The polio vaccine were mainly tested on monkeys for amelioration.
Throughout the past two decades, extreme animal rights groups have claimed responsibility for hundreds of crimes and acts of terrorism, including arson, bombings, vandalism, burglary, animal release, and harassment. These crimes have caused damage costing more than one hundred million dollars. While some activists have been captured, animal rights terrorism cells, are extremely difficult to identify and most of the attacks remain unsolved. Although it has been overshadowed by Islamic terrorist threats since September 11, animal rights terrorism still remains one of the United States most active terrorist movements. This paper intends to explore the Animal Rights terrorist movement and prove that Animal Rights activists pose a significant domestic terror threat.

There is an estimated 316,000 injuries per year from horseback riding. THAT’S 3X THE AMOUNT OF HOCKEY INJURES!!!! Along with and averaged 100 deaths per year from riding horses. Most of these injuries are head injuries from falling of the horse because after the fall the rider is able to be trampled and kicked which can result in worse injuries. Even though it is a law that you are required to wear a helmet you can land on you head in a fall and break bones in your neck and back.
By definition, factory farming involves animals stored in cramped, hot, disease ridden cages, crates or other confined spaces to produce eggs or other foods for humans to consume. The definition of this debate is whether factory farming should be put to an end. I am supporting the fact that it should indeed be put to an end. Why? #1 point, cruelty Well, first of all, About 500 million land animals now in the Thailand are raised for dairy, meat and eggs each year and they all got killed in more than 400 slaughterhouses from the factory farming that are exist around the country.
“Perceptions of Invasive Species: The Cane Toad” Invasive species are often given a bad name. The word “invasive” itself naturally has negative connotations, which is perhaps why when people hear the term “invasive species” they automatically regard the species with animosity. As Davis et al. (2011) aptly put: ‘'non-native' species have been vilified for driving beloved 'native' species to extinction and generally polluting 'natural' environments. Intentionally or not, such characterizations have helped to create a pervasive bias against alien species that has been embraced by the public, conservationists, land managers and policy-makers, as well by as many scientists, throughout the world.’ The issue of native and invasive species is not clear, even though we tend to value native species and view invasive species with suspicion.
The genocide in Darfur, Sudan has already caused hundreds of thousands of Darfuris to die and cause more than 2 million people to be homeless. The genocide began in early 2003 when members of two rebel groups revolted against the Sudanese government in Khartoum alleging systematic neglect of the inhabitants of Darfur. The two rebel groups are the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA). The government responded by launching an assault against these two rebel groups. Black Arabs were being discriminated against because they were black and they were being told that they weren't in the right religion.
Vivisection: A Modern Day Scandal Why is it that in the scientific age of the twenty first century, we are still carrying out horrifically unethical and unreliable tests on defenceless animals in vain attempts to understand the effects of varying cosmetic or medical products in humans, an entirely different species? That is a question being asked of by a growing number of outraged people-animal rights activists, doctors, scholars and lay people alike – all of whom are guided by compassion, scientific fact and common sense. However there are still many who support this outdated, Victorian style methodology, claiming it to be humane, beneficial to human health and vital to modern medicine. This essay will explore the (ir) rationality associated with vivisection, using strong, peer reviewed evidence as the basis for the counter argument and it will also address the controversial issue of where their vested interests lie. Government figures show that three million animals per year in the UK alone are poisoned, surgically injured, driven insane, burned, irradiated, starved, electrocuted, kept in solitary confinement and eventually killed all in the name of research, in experiments that most people would find hard to even imagine.
Since then, the United Nations estimates more than 190,000 people have died in the clashes between President Bashar Al-Assad's government and rebel forces who want him out.” As you may know, Bashar Al-Assad is the person behind all this is. The Syrian Revolution and Animal Farm have many things that are comparable. Both Bashar
According to Mayra Calvani in her journal in World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) mentioned that in Latin America and Europe, around 250,000 bulls die per year due to tortured and killed for entertainment purpose especially in bullfighting. (M.Calvani, 2008)². This shows that, keeping animals for entertainment purposes promotes animal abuse. Secondly, captivity also takes away animals’ freedom. Many of wild animals cannot cope with situation that they are taken from their natural habitats and placed in captivity.
