Animal Experimentation Essays

by Andre Fredo

Testing on animals is common practice for products such as cosmetics or drugs. Some people regard testing on animals as completely wrong and inhumane and they believe is should not be allowed.

Do you agree or disagree with this statement?

In 21st century where the development of technology are in advance, people commonly kill animals for products that are used in life or to find something new to fulfill human necessity such as cosmetics or drugs. Some people are of the opinion that it is totally wrong and inhumane so it should not be allowed. On the other hand, there are people who disagree toward this statement. Personally, I absolutely agree with this opinion because of several reasons.

Firstly, cosmetics is something that people,especially women, use to build up a better appearance. However, in my opinion, it is not the main necessity that should be fulfill as there are many types of cosmetics such as the products of Body Shop which make up without any animals resource. By using goods that are originally made up with part of animal body such as skin increase confidence, social status, and prestige. For these reason, the rate of killing animals for particular reasons is increasing as more and more demand comes to be a business profit. Secondly, scientists kill animals for finding and creating new types of drugs is not fair. We all agree that every living things without any exception have a right to live. It is not only accepted in humanity side, but also supported by particular religion such as Buddhist. Moreover, the sources of drugs is not only comes from animals, but there are various types of substance that are contained in plant and can be developed to be useful medicine.

To sum up, killing animals for cosmetics or drugs is categorized as inhumane activity no matter what reason they are as all living things have a right to live.

Animal testing maybe needed these days in order to test drugs whether they can be used as medicine for treatment of a specific disease. Such kind of testing is necessary to prevent risking human life by direct testing on individuals. Animal testing can be used where it is necessary but in the case of cosmetics which is an extra thing,animal testing must not be allowed.

by: Tano

The fact that medicine's are important for healing different type of diseases they have to be manufactured in numerous number to reduce the diseases in the global area. When cosmetics or drugs have been manufactured they have to be tested to observe whether they are working properly or not, but the question is where do we test them? To fellow human beings.

Arguments For and Against Animal Experiments

by princy goyal

Examine the arguments in favour of and against animal experiments, and come to a conclusion on this issue.

Over the recent years, a number of research and experiments being done on animals have increased significantly. In my opinion, such an act of using animals for various kind of experimentation should be stopped immediately as animals are often tortured and hurt during search experimentation.

Humans think it to be beneficial to do experiments on animals for several reasons. Firstly, most of the medical research was successful as scientists were finally able to find cures for a number of diseases.

However, I don not think that these arguments stand up to scrutiny. Animals suffer a lot of torture and are sometimes killed also during the research process. They are mostly used for the production of cosmetics, fashion garments, etc. Moreover, animals and human bodies are different; as a consequence, this testing may not provide safety that its proponents claim.

I hope that the government will forbid animal experimentation in haste and would severely punished those who are involved in this inhumane activity.
