Darryl Phillips Mr. Leggett English 4 28 April 17 Behind the Scenes In Animal Testing Animal experimentation is a serious issue that many people oppose, whereas others try to justify the inhumanity behind it. Because of the controversy surrounding this topic, it has caused much frustration in companies and labs that test their products on animals. There are currently many organizations such as PETA (People for the Ethical Treatments of Animals) and IAAPEA (International Association Against Painful Experiments On Animals) that oppose animal testing and try to resolve this issue by providing people with knowledgeable information about what is really happening to these animals. Over one-hundred million animals die in labs worldwide every
Insofar as I can make-out, people are uncomfortable to know how animals die and to assume such a responsibility. When I've showed people videos of --seemingly credible-- factory farm footage they either react in two different ways: (1) either they quiver-away or plea me to turn it off (2) or they uncomfortably scoff at how ridiculously cynical it all is. Albeit, appalled, this doesn't generally discourage people to stop eating meat altogether. They simply look past it when they go-off and buy animal-based products. The fact of the matter is that the animal products we buy are the source of considerable pain and cruelty.
Are Pit Bulls Really too Dangerous? “BSL is nothing more than breed profiling and as of yet it has not worked to curb the amount of serious dog attacks it was put in place to stop” (www.pitbulllovers.com, 2007). Breed Specific Legislation, or BSL are a set of laws that restricts breeds of dog or completely bans the breed from an area. BSL has banned the American Pit Bull Terrier from multiple states in America, and even some European countries. In this essay I will prove the unnecessity of BSL.
Child abuse still takes place today. There are many examples in The Chrysalids where discrimination leads to violence. David’s father kills animals because they are slightly different from other animals of their species. John Wyndham suggests that people should not exert violence towards someone who is different. In Waknuk and modern day there are good hearted people and other people who are violent.
As humans we fear many things in life, fear of failure, loss, and fear of being hurt. In society yet humans continue to make war and kill each other and those murders don’t happen because of natural disaster. Conflict is caused when we fear something therefore we fight to protect them. Humans wouldn’t be killing each other if humans weren’t afraid of them. As an example from the movie “Two hands “we noticed, when Jimmy was trying to deliver the money which Pando gave him as his first job, unfortunately Jimmy lost the money on his way.
The video then talks about the meat packing industry and how it is the most dangerous job in the world so illegal immigrants have become common. The government has started cracking down on workers not the companies so this is an ongoing process. Jumps back to the honest farmer that does it old fashioned and has him talking about how the whole system of industry will be changed from the excessive demand. The system has become very vicious and consequences for not following regulations have become so severe that the accused farmers are put out of business. The video closes with statements like buy organic and support do good farmers.
If you don’t deserve it then either does the animals of the world. If somebody took something of mine I will take something of theirs because it isn’t fair to anyone or anything. I am tired of people murdering then for no reason at all. Animals (horses) all over the world get killed because there are so many slaughter houses in the world. I chose this topic because people need to know what a lot of people in the world do to animals it just sickens a lot of people because of their cruelty.
Vivi-section violates animal freedom. And since animals cannot volunteer themselves, they are chosen for scientific purposes with no voice in the matter whatsoever. If us humans go swimming we have to sign waivers but these poor animals are being signed up for torture, which will lead to their inevitable death with no say in the matter. Vivi-section is used for scientific purposes, for finding cures that benefit the human population, sure a few animals will be saved using these cures but in the end it’s the human population that benefits more from the deaths of these helpless animals.
The Morality of Killing Animals: An Investigation in Utilitarian Ethics. Research Question The killing of non-human animals remains an unsolved problem in utilitarian ethics and has generated heated debate amongst ethicists in recent times. My aim is to illuminate this issue, specifically the morality of killing animals when it is done painlessly. In doing so I intend to tackle several questions: What, if anything, makes killing wrong? Does the wrongness of killing animals (human and non-human) depend on them possessing specific attributes?
First of all animal cruelty is a natural problem because it affects animal, it violates their rights, leaving them with serious physical or psychological injuries that may cause them death. Also when they take species out of their wild environment, and put them under control of the humans for entertainment and experiments, they are affecting the natural balance. Under the control of humans, they are likely to be abused and mistreated. It is a cultural issue because people from Spain and around the world actually believe that the fighting bull is only for fight, so that is why they kill them, because it´s entertainment and they give them a honorable death. Also, in the case of the whale killing, it is also cultural because in some parts of the world, they have used some whale parts in order to do traditional medicine.
