This means you choose not to follow the rules regardless of the consequences in order to meet your personal needs. One example would be killing hundreds of small rabbits to have a rabbit fur rug in your living room. My view on unethical treatment of animals is supporting animal rights. Although I may never see the day where it is illegal to eat, wear or kill animals I find happiness in knowing that they are treated
The testing on animals need to stop. Animals get locked up in cages and don’t get let out until the testing happens. Scientists are testing products like tooth paste on the animals to make sure it is safe for the use of the humans (Boggan 1). This is why the animals shouldn’t be tested on because the animals get locked up in cages and get stuck in there until it’s time to go into the lab to get tested on. Animals can feel anything that is going on in the body.
“Spaying is a general term used to describe the ovariohysterectomy of a female animal” while “Neutering is a general term used to describe the castration of a male animal (American Humane Association, 2011).” In more simple terms, spaying and neutering renders the animal sterile through surgical means, and therefore, it permanently prevents them from having litters. In addition to the sterilization caused by these procedures, there are also health benefits that arise from having your pet spayed or neutered. According to the American Humane Association, there are both instant and long term benefits of these procedures. A spayed a female cat “eliminates the constant crying and nervous pacing,” and “eliminates the messiness associated with the heat cycle (American Humane Association, 2011)” for female dogs. In both male cats and dogs, neutering can “prevent certain undesirable sexual behaviors, such as urine marking, humping, male aggression and the urge to roam.” Also, animals in multi-pet houses are far more likely to get along with one another if they are “fixed.” Long term health benefits for spayed females of both species (when completed before the animal’s first “heat” cycle) include nearly completely eliminating the risk of breast cancer, and fully eliminating any chance of uterine infections and uterine cancer.
Although those who seek to end animal research – either because they choose to reject its well established usefulness or because they believe the life of a rat is equal in importance to that of a child – persist in their efforts to sabotage medical research with break-ins, thefts, arsons, harassment and intimidation of researchers, there can be no question that there is a great need for animals in medical research to prevent deadly diseases, to ensure the safety of the general public of unstable cosmetics and household products that are used every
Why lamarcks theory not accepted /Lamarck's theory is basically proposing that an organism obtained the traits they have due to the activities performed by their parents. Therefore, Lamarck has practically saying that if you were to remove the tails of two rats, and have them reproduce a baby, the baby would have no tail. Why lam is not accep[ted and darwins do? Because Darwin's theory matched real-world observations, while Lamarck's did not. For example, you don't breed bulldogs by hitting your terrier in the face with a shovel After lots of repetitions and observations scientists came to a conclusion that Lamarck's theory was not true, because if it was, we would still be able to see baby giraffes being born with a long neck, then suddenly stretching their necks to reach the leaves on trees.
Drug manufacturers test medications on animals after they have been injected with viruses and diseases to see if the medications work on the animals. There are many companies who use animal research to test their products; unfortunately these organizations do not look for alternatives besides animal testing. If these atrocious acts were committed outside laboratories, they would be felonies. But animals suffer and die every day in laboratories with little or no protection from cruelty. It is immoral to
Some people say these experiments are cruel, and animals should not be used. While others say they would rather see these experiments done on animals instead of humans themselves. b. Thesis statement- Animal experimentation for medical purposes should be carried out, instead of scientist performing human tests. c. Main points- My main points are; medical advances for humans due to animal experiments, medical advances for animals due to animal experimentation, how the animals are really treated, laws that are enforced, and why animals are used. 2.
A key example being Lennie crushing mice when he “just petted them a little”. The use of the word “just” indicates that Steinbeck is letting us know that the fault doesn’t always lie with the killer, but it’s just the way nature works. In this example, Lennie is the larger force, and despite not having bad intentions about the mice, he still ends up killing them. To a larger extent, and more prominently, the death of Candy’s dog indicates Steinbeck’s thoughts about nature and the world. Despite Candy having his dog “since he was a pup”, because “he ain’t no good to” him anymore, Carlson indicates that he should be shot.
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 he has his way, rat poison will be tested on rats -- care to hazard a guess about the results? To be charitable, suppose for a moment that Mr. Gore came up with some chemicals whose properties were unknown. Animal testing would tell us little about their potential danger to humans. The basic tests in the original proposal, now being challenged by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and other animal protection groups, are from the 1920s and 1930s. They are this crude and painful: Force the chemicals down the animals' throats, smear them onto their abraded backs or inject them directly into their stomachs until the animals die.
