Without animals for testing, where would our lives be going? Maybe, we will have a lot more diseases. First of all, the author claims that we humans have been killing animals for survival and the progress depends on our ability to kill animals. We eat them when we need food and we use them for testing to find new medicine. I found the story very difficult to support, mainly because of the way he stereotyped animal rights.
In the first stanza, Millay immediately shows her stance with death. The whole poem starts with her showing her defiance with “That is all I shall do for death.” What this shows is that Millay knows people will die, and everyone will face it but they should not help death by killing. This applies to war because the whole point of war is to destroy the opposition, so by not helping death by killing, war can be avoided. In the next part, it says “I hear him leading his horse out of the stall.” This shows that Death must be very wealthy as to own a horse as they take a lot of expense to look after. However what it also shows is that death is dependent.
Face the Facts The statistics about horse slaughter are quite scary. About 120,000 horses are exported from the United States to either Canada or Mexico every year. In 2006, U.S. Slaughter Houses were shut down by state laws. For a while there was a slight decrease in the number of horses being slaughtered here in the United States.
Fay Dickinson Professor Luke Dilworth 603-101-MQ 2 October 2012 Animal Born from War At almost any given point in human history the human race has been at war over something. Land, resources, religion; no matter what the cause all hold the same in one respect: men killing men. In the aftermath of all this there are thousands upon millions of traumatized soldiers who are left suffering from symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder and similar mental issues. However what of those who are seemingly fine after they are away from the battles? Did they really see men die before them and walk away unaffected?
The Lorelei in the poem are the Nazis that murdered millions of rabbis and they will never be able to wash the blood off their hands. The speaker says “However sweetly they sing / one hears only the low wailing of the cattle-cars / moving invisibly across the land” (lines 14-16). By saying this speaker mean that people who were not apart of the war hear the sound of trains. Only the few that survived hear the sound of the cattle-cars that carried others to the
Remarque uses one of the earlier scenes of the innocent dying horses as a symbol of the loss of innocent young men who were torn away from their families. ‘The belly of one of the horses has been ripped open and its guts are trailing out’ (pg 45). Baumer describes the scene of the dying screaming horses in pain and fear, ‘we can stand a lot, but this brings us out in a cold sweat’ (pg 45). Detering who was a farmer back home states ‘what have they done to deserve that’ (pg 45) and ‘it is the most despicable thing of all to drag animals into a war’ (pg 45). When they started to run out of the older boys, they started bringing in younger and younger recruits.
The other animals probably wouldn’t have listened anyway if I tried to warn them. They were so indulged with their new lives, oblivious to the fact that there was a greater evil among us. When Boxer was mercilessly slaughtered, I took a deeper look at what was going on. I remember running up to the vehicle in which he was supposed to be transferred to a veterinary hospital and screaming to the animals “Fools! Fools!
Of the 10 billion at least 6 billion are derived from broiler chickens, which are killed after 9 short weeks of life. Laying hens are kept 5 or 6 to a 14 square inch cage. As many as 20% die from stress and disease from living conditions. At least ½ of 10 million milk cows live on factory farms in conditions that cause tremendous suffering to the animals Cows of the 90’s lived only about 4-5 years as apposed to a life expectancy of 20-25 years. To keep animals at high levels of productivity farmers keep them pregnant constantly through artificial insemination.
First of all, from a moral perspective, animal experimentation is so cruel that it should be stopped. In order to access interests, people keep ignoring the miserable situation of laboratorial animals. It is necessary for us to know the truth. Animals are routinely cut open, poisoned, and forced to live in barren steel cages for years. As far as I know, much of the experimentations include pumping chemicals into rats' stomachs, hacking muscle tissue from dogs' legs.
It is a fact that millions of animals are killed every year simply for the purpose of using their fur or skin for clothing. These animals are likely to suffer a cruel death either through electrocution or having their neck broken. Some of them are gassed, poisoned or even clubbed to death. Either way the fact still remains that these animals are treated to horrific conditions. On fur farms where animals are raised for the purpose of using their fur for clothing; they are placed in filthy, overcrowded wire cages until they are sooner or later killed for their fur.
