We will not make them suffer long painful deaths. Ethical treatment of animals can be solved using the deontology theory. “Deontology focuses on what we are obligated to do as rational moral agents. It is particularly important to see that the deontologist does not say that actions do not have consequences; rather, the deontologist insists that actions should not be evaluated on the basis of the action's consequences (Mossler, 2010).“ One example of the deontology theory in action is your livestock is being attacked by a wild animal. In efforts to protect your livestock you shoot and kill the wild animal.
III. Problems and improvements to felony laws: A. The problem with felony animal cruelty laws is this you have to be able to show intent. Apparently, in most cases judges and lawyers can't show intent. Well, when you have a battered animal and you can't show intent, there is something wrong with the justice system.
Secondly mutual benefits for both humans as well as animals. In addition, to this, it has looked at several negative aspects of animals testing which are animals genome is unlike human genome. The cost, while animal testing is expensive, alternative methods are cheaper and more accuracy. However, from my point view of the topic despite all the positive side of animals testing, it should be banned it. Firstly, animals testing is is essentially untrustworthy, unethical and curl.
As a moral theory primarily concerned with well-being, utilitarianism grants moral protection to most non-human animals, given that they have interests related to pleasure and suffering. However, it is not clear how these interests apply to the morality of killing when no suffering is involved. This has led some to suggest that we have grounds to oppose the mistreatment of animals but not their killing (Singer, 2011). However, many find this conclusion puzzling as we normally regard death as worse than mild suffering (McMahan,
Even though different cultures have different views on what is morally right and wrong, I believe when it comes to the treatment of animals it should all be standardized. In some countries it is acceptable for animals to be eaten, used in testing skin products, and even in the testing of new and sometimes lethal medicines, but this is cruel and inappropriate. Testing on animals does make some products safer on humans, but the suffering that is incurred is not worth the risk most of the time. The Diversity thesis states that there is no moral principle accepted by all societies, yet in the mistreatment of animals I believe its almost a paradigm case that is so central to the definition of evil that the unnecessary infliction of pain and suffering should be wrong for all. Animals obviously have the capacity to suffer and feel pain, and we know this because they have similar mechanisms of pain detection that we have, and in their brain have similar areas that process and react to physical as well as mental suffering.
Each year, throughout thousands of animals are dying or being ridiculously abused. In 2007, there were 1,880 animal abuse cases in America. 1,212 of those cases were about dogs, 337 were about cats, and 470 were other animals. Harmless, innocent animals are being hurt, and being very harmed but crucial people with no intention of what they are really doing. They are beating poor animals senseless.
He tries to prove how animal testing affects animals, but the evidence that he gives us was some kind of violence and lacking police protection. These evidences do not match with the idea that he tells us that “lacking adequate police protection, fearing for the lives of their employees… bringing it to the brink of bankruptcy”. I feel that the writer uses red herring. He keeps bring up criminal issue instead of talking about how animal testing effects on animals. Moreover, the writer gives evidence that I feel it does not make sense “the crime against Huntington are not isolated incidents; animal rights terrorists commit more than 1,000 crimes annually”.
Animal Cruelty Animal cruelty is the infliction of suffering or harm on animals, for purposes other than self-defense. It can be harm for specific gain, or even just to rid you of responsibility. There are many kinds of animal cruelty. Animal cruelty exists as neglect and abandonment, slaughter house torture, puppy mills, fighting dens, animal testing, fur trapping, and entertainment. Animal cruelty comes in many forms and has many grave consequences.
People in the cosmetic industry say that they test on animals to make sure it is safe for humans. But humans and animals differ significantly making product testing inaccurate and dangerous. For example animals have much more sensitive skin then humans. They react differently to things. Sixty one percent of the cosmetics that are tested on animals and there is no affect and it is put on the market, people have gotten killed or seriously injured by it.
In these tests, the animals have chemicals forced down their throats, into their eyes and onto their shaved skin in order to document their reaction to ensure the safe use for humans” (Zuazua 2017). Along with the animals, it puts a damper on humans, because people hate seeing such a thing happen to innocent animals. Most family households include some sort of animal, whether it is a dog, cat, fish, bird, etc. Also, almost everyone that has a pet thinks about animal cruelty in a bad way, because they would hate to see their babies in danger. If a person owns a pet, then they probably (and should) enjoy being around animals, which is why pet owners are good people to inform, since they will take the most action right away.
