I am writing this letter regarding the issues of live cattle export published in the age's education section issues. The writer's contention is telling the reader about the live export trade from Indonesia and cruelty to Australian cattle being harmed in Indonesia and being exported. The writer also explains to the reader about how this is done and how these animals are being harmed. My contention of this issue is that I think that live export trade should not happen as it is putting too much harm and stress on the cattle. In my opinion I think live cattle export should stop, it is just a bad image for Indonesia.
In this essay I will prove the unnecessity of BSL. This essay will go more in depth on what BSL is all about, it will educate the readers about the American Pit Bull Terrier breed and the pit bull family as a whole, and it will provide possible alternatives. Breed Specific Legislation made its first notable appearance in 1984. “In 1984, a New Mexico town completely banned pit bulls and allowed county officers to confiscate and euthanize the dogs” (www.animallaw.info, 2007). BSL was made to try to regulate specific breeds of dogs.
The author also talks about the protesters and the problems they have given to the companies that have any relation with animal testing. The authors clearly support the testing done to the animals. Alex Epstein and Yaron Brook constantly use ethos, and logos to support their argument of animal rights groups acting like “terrorists”(Epstein & Brook 604) and their support of animal testing. Yaron Brook is the president and executive director of Ayn Rand institute. Brook is a philosopher who works for Ayn Rand Institute which is an organization that advertises Ayn Rand's philosophy and novels of objectivism.
Comparing two non-fiction texts Text A is an informative RSPCA website article, particularly aimed at adults or people interested in animals, such as farmers. The website is informing people about how the RSPCA would like abattoirs to have CCTV installed to be aware of how animals are treated before and during slaughter. The perspective of the author is from somebody who works for the RSPCA so you would assume they are keen to support the welfare of animals. Text B is a leaflet which uses persuasive language, encouraging people to stop eating meat. The audience for this leaflet would mainly be meat-eaters, as vegetarians would not need encouragement to be something they are already.
Along with this, Lady Macbeth is also hasty to pursue the prophesised power, and manipulates Macbeth into committing the first deed. In animal Farm, it is Old Major’s ideals which spurs the animals into performing the uprising against Farmer Jones and forming the new idea of Animalism. Unlike the murder of Duncan, the animal’s revolt is a worthy cause, which benefits the whole community and not just a single individual. Both the Witches prophecy and Old Majors ideals planted the seed of ambition in Macbeth’s and Napoleon’s minds, unfortunately, those seeds quickly grow into tyranny. Macbeth begins his bloody chain of murders with the help of Lady Macbeth, working together to murder King Duncan.
Animals in The Wars By: Danny, James, Julia, Kristan and Stefanie [pic] Our Thesis: The presence of animals in the novel, The Wars serve as a constant symbol of Robert Ross’s innocence. Animals become the only innocent victims of the war, yet are still destroyed and tortured by humans. Each time Robert witnesses their obliteration, he is exposed to the cruelty and brutality of others. His innocence and humanity are deteriorated throughout the novel, until he evolves into an animalistic savage himself. Rowena and her Rabbits: By: Julia Rowena’s Innocence - • The character of Rowena serves as a symbol of innocence in The Wars, as her disability sheltered her from the surrounding world.
Grace Cueva Mr.King ERWC October 29, 2014 Los Angeles Times 551 Burning Tree Rd. Fullerton, CA Dear Editor, Jeremy Rifkin declared in his article,” A Change of Heart About Animals” Los Angeles Times, September 1, 2003 that animals are capable of emotions just like any human being is, and is requesting that all people treat animals with a sense of empathy to animals just like you would to any other human being. His ideas are a bit too farfetched and absurd and if you really examine the idea itself it is really badly supported. This stems from the fact that one of the topics that differentiate human beings from animals is their ability to feel regarding the lives of creatures outside of their own kind. Rifkin tries to persuade us by telling us that animals understand and experience the whole idea of mortality by using observation for example,”Elephants will often stand next to their kin for days, occasionally touching their bodies with their trunks.”(Rifkin, 11) I think that just because animals can feel grief does not mean that we should treat them how we treat other humans.
26 November 2012 Christian Flores 28000 Wolverine Way, Aliso Viejo, 92656 Davan Maharaj Los Angeles Times 202 West 1st Street Los Angeles, CA, 90012 Dear Editor, In Jeremy Rifkin’s article “A Change of Heart About Animals,” he speaks about how we should treat animals better because they are more like humans than what is commonly believed. In the article he says “many of our fellow creatures are more like us than we had ever imagined,” to show his argument. Rifkin makes many points about how animals should be treated humanely in his article and these arguments are, for the most part, very reasonable. I agree, to an extent, with Jeremy Rifkin and his arguments. In the article, Jeremy Rifkin shows that it would be illogical to disagree that animals have human-like qualities through studies.
If a doctor wants to use animals for research they have to prove that the harm of the animal equals the benefit it will give the human, also, through legislation all lab animals must be protected form cruelty of mistreatment. In addition, millions of animals are killed each year for food, does this benefit humans to the extent that animal research for life saving cures does? Surely medical research on animals is a more worthy cause of death. This is another reason why people are pro- animal testing. God made man in charge of animals and to rule over them, “rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every other living creature that moves on the ground” Many Christians do not have an issue with eating animals, as they believe that god made animals for humans to eat.
While driving along the highway I noticed a billboard protesting animals be used in experimentation. If medical and scientifical experimentation were to be done in only human trials the knowledge and understanding of how drugs and procedures can affect humans would be decades behind. That is why the use of animals in experimentation is a must in order to continue advancing medicine and science. Animals have a high reproductive rate and are easy to breed. Animals have the same organs and tissues as humans do making them very good analogues.
