In the text there is an outbreak of cholera, also referred to as a “plague”. The Venetians have decided to keep this plague a secret from tourists as tourism is a main contribution to their total revenue. Gustav Acshenbach has figured out something is going on, he asks around but almost everyone is willing to lie in order to protect their own interests. The choice can be considered wrong behaviour, many people may die because they did not know about the disease. Keeping this secret could be considered murder, which is against the law and morally very wrong.
People care more about the panda than this fish. The reason the blue-fin tuna is becoming endangered is likely due to excessive fishing. People are more likely to eat fish rather than eating panda, which is why one of the fish is hiding behind a panda mask. Due to our excessive fishing and consumption of this fish, the blue-fin tuna will most likely become extinct. This is similar to a campaign by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, ‘to rename all fish “sea-kittens” because no one would
The Dangers of Assisted Suicide “Advocates of physician assisted suicide try to convey the impression that in terminally ill patients the wish to die is totally different from suicidal intent in those without terminal illness” (Herbert and Klerman 118.) Physician assisted suicide is when a physician assists their patient in dying upon their request. In some states there are laws giving limitations to who can request such a “procedure,“ but these laws are not enough to prevent the dangers of assisted suicide. Assisted suicide should be illegal in all fifty states because it is immoral, dangerous to society, and can lead to the deaths of millions of depressed people. “Critics of physician assisted suicide believe that doctors like Jack Kevorkian are doing nothing less than playing God“ (Gay 47.)
Shark poaching is a big concern because it affects the future of sharks and their place of living. Poaching is the process where people get rich by catching sharks on long lines, cutting their fins off, and then dumping the remaining body of the shark back into the ocean to suffocate and bleed to death. Shark poachers seek financial gain and at times religious value, however, by doing so they fail to realize the negative impact that their actions have on the environment and the shark species. “Sharks have made it through multiple mass extinctions on our planet, now many species are going to go the way of the
At first Captain Schweitzer believed that destroying the video tape would save the United States Marine Corps and himself from humiliation. Even though he knew their actions were sanctioned, he feared that the Italians would misinterpret the maneuvers telling Captain Ashby “… the Italians will eat you alive.” Captain Schweitzer also stated “All I could think about was my face superimposed next to the blood in the snow,” in his reasons for destroying the tape. By destroying the tape Captain Schweitzer also denied the dignity of the Italian officials to make an informed decision, failing to pass the Categorical Imperatives. By not handing over the tape Captain Schweitzer used the Italian officials as a mere means to an end. This point was strengthened when the existence of the videotape became publicly known six months after the mishap.
Explore The statistic ‘increases by just 2%’ is shocking because it shows that only a small change in the numbers of orangutans could be fatal for the species. The word ‘just’ has negative connotations of being insignificant or small, which makes the reader think we should be able to stop it happening. Similarly, the word ‘extinction’ is alarming as it has negative connotations of death, telling the reader that all the orang-utans will be gone and that there is nothing we can do about it. This makes the leaflet encourage people to support the campaign to save the orang-utans. You can see that the main part of this answer is the analysis of the quotation, the explore.
What happens to animals when people sport hunt? Would animals survive should a catastrophic natural disaster happen? What happens to the fish when people sport fish? Would fish survive should a catastrophic natural disaster happen? Everybody should know how to hunt and/or fish and grub to survive should they survive a catastrophic natural disaster, but then at the same time it should be illegal for people to sport hunt and fish for trophies.
This system is flawed as it was never designed to ensure animal welfare. The animals are being whipped, their heads beaten onto concrete blocks and their throats only half-slit and died lingering deaths on these voyages. We, however, can change this. Now, in support of passing this bill to end live animal exports, I would like to present several ethical reasons why we should look at moving away from this cruel treatment of our animals. Firstly, the fate of our animals during transportation.
This means that hunting whales for the sole purpose of generating profit is no longer legally permitted. It may seem that because this regulation has been put into place, the practice of whaling would come to an end, yet the IWC remains powerless in the fight towards ending the slaughter of whales (International Whaling Commission, n.p). This is mainly because commercial whaling is a prominent industry in Japan and its ban has cut off a large portion of the country’s revenue. So, in order to diminish their losses they ceaselessly continue this practice, which in turn can be adequately described as mass
sharks. Each year, humans kill more than 100 million sharks worldwide.Over the last 50 years, numbers of some shark species have dropped as much as 80% Sharks play a very important role in the oceans as they are at the top of the food chain. They keep populations of other fish healthy and in proper proportion by preying on old, sick, or slower fishes. These sharks are often killed for their fins for shark fin soup, a luxury food that is not important for human survival or health but removing the sharks can result in the loss of important foods that we do depend upon for survival. -If we don’t have the animal rights movement to protect the animals, once people overuse the animals they may break the biologic chain, this may lead to the extinction of some animals which breaks the food chain.
