Argumentative Essay on Animal Rights

Animal testing is used to protect us humans from a wide range of chemicals and products, including drugs, vaccines, cosmetics, household cleaners, pesticides, foods, and packing materials. The safety testing of chemicals and consumer products probably accounts for only about 10% to 20% of the use of animals in laboratories, or approximately two to four million animals in the United States, yet this relatively small amount has caused quite a bit of controversy. It raises issues such as the ethics and humaneness of deliberately poisoning animals, the decency of harming animals for the sake of marketing a new cosmetic or household product, the applicability of animal data to humans, and the possibility of sparing millions of animals by developing alternatives to a handful of widely used procedures. I personally am against animal testing due to highly questionable ethics and practicality issues. You may or may not agree with me, but by the end of this paper I hope you at least understand my logic.
In our human existence, it is well understood that there exists a basic principle that the only limit to a person’s rights should be the where the rights of another are infringed upon — most critically, when a person’s life, health or freedom is at risk. From our own experiences, we know that these things are priceless to us; we are familiar with the fear that arises from any of them being threatened. Slavery, murder, and rape are measured as among the nastiest crimes conceivable; execution and life imprisonment are the two harshest sentences that U.S. courts have the power to hand down. We prohibit people from hurting, killing, or enslaving other humans because we know that the inborn urge we have to retain our health and freedom exists not just in ourselves, but in all humans; when these urges are violated, we all suffer. Therefore, we strive to build a society in which individuals are not subjected to these crimes. However, when it comes t.

Am I a good person? Deep down, do I even really want to be a good person, or do I only want to seem like a good person so that people (including myself) will approve of me? Is there a difference? How do I ever actually know whether I’m bullshitting myself, morally speaking?

in real life I always seem to have a hard time winding up a conversation or asking somebody to leave, and sometimes the moment becomes so delicate and fraught with social complexity that I’ll get overwhelmed trying to sort out all the different possible ways of saying it and all the different implications of each option and will just sort of blank out and do it totally straight — ‘I want to terminate the conversation and not have you be in my apartment anymore’ — which evidently makes me look either as if I’m very rude and abrupt or as if I’m semi-autistic and have no sense of how to wind up a conversation gracefully. I’ve actually lost friends this way.

It’s not that students don’t «get» Kafka’s humor but that we’ve taught them to see humor as something you get — the same way we’ve taught them that a self is something you just have. No wonder they cannot appreciate the really central Kafka joke — that the horrific struggle to establish a human self results in a self whose humanity is inseparable from that horrific struggle. That our endless and impossible journey toward home is in fact our home. It’s hard to put into words up at the blackboard, believe me. You can tell them that maybe it’s good they don’t «get» Kafka. You can ask them to imagine his art as a kind of door. To envision us readers coming up and pounding on this door, pounding and pounding, not just wanting admission but needing it, we don’t know what it is but we can feel it, this total desperation to enter, pounding and pushing and kicking, etc. That, finally, the door opens. and it opens outward: we’ve been inside what we wanted all along. Das ist komisch.

Animal Testing is Animal Cruelty — Animal Testing is Animal Cruelty The way I look at animal testing is a form hateful cruelty. None of these people care about if it hurts or kills the animals. The cruelty has been going on long enough and I think it is time to stop. What people do not know is that animal’s react a different way to drugs as humans do, so scientist cannot apply the results to humans. Many animals go through screaming, unbearable, horrific; you cannot even imagine pain when they go through test for products that you use every day such as: Cosmetics, Household Products, Medical Products, even Iams dog products.

The Controversy of Animal Testing — Imagine being forced to move away from your home and from your family with no say in the matter. You are moved to an unfamiliar environment where you aren’t able to choose how you live your life. You don’t get to decide when or what you will eat. You can’t choose what you will do with your time and who you will spend it with. You are confined into a small area and you are completely alone. These are the conditions that many animals are forced to live under. Animal testing is defined as the use of non-human animals in research and development projects (dictionary.com).

Animal Testing Should Be Banned — Did you know that the shampoo you use was probably forced down the throat of a rabbit, cat, or maybe even a dog. Each year, millions of animals are used to test how safe and effective products, such as cosmetics, are. They are genetically modified, force-fed harmful chemicals, blinded, scalded, and maimed. How could one not object to this awful cruelty. Animal testing should be banned because it is cruel, unnecessary, inaccurate, and expensive.

Animal Experimentation Description and Analysis — Animal testing has been the primary source of testing for diseases, as well as for finding treatments for many years. Often times, these animals are given different medications in various doses without a thought that they are living, breathing creatures just like humans. The end result is usually a small break in medicine and a large number of innocent animals losing their lives. Animal experimentation should not be allowed because the way animals are treated is inhumane, the experiments are wasteful and unreliable, and there are other alternatives that do not harm animals.

The Cruelty of Animal Testing — There are nearly 26 million animals in the United States who are tested for commercial and scientific use. The AWA- Animal Welfare Act- provides limitations on which animals institutions and scientists can use. Since 1850, the AWA protected about 1,134,693 animals, but has left about 25 million other animals to be scientifically and commercially used. The fact that there are about 25 million animal species not protected by the AWA has many people against animal testing. The AWA sets minimum housing standards and also requires regular inspections by veterinarians. [tags: ethical issues, animal welfare]

We torture and heartlessly kill creatures that we arrogantly consider lesser beings simply at our disposal. For something as simple as eye makeup animals are tortured and blinded by tests performed at the laboratory. [tags: Animal Testing]

Is Animal Testing Wrong or Right? — Ninety two percent of all animal testing that is effective on animals are ineffective on humans (ASPCA). Despite this alarming statistic, scientists still use animals in these experiments. Scientist give the animals no choice in whether they or going to be used in an experiment. Animal testing is when scientist use products, vaccinations or other things they develop for humans and use on animals. Scientist use all types of animals, but the most common are rats, mice, birds, reptiles and amphibians (ASPCA). [tags: scientists experiments, animal testing, cosmetics]

Animal experimentation in the UK — Animal experimentation, also known as animal research and animal testing, is an experimental procedure in which animals are used within academic, scientific, research, biological and commercial establishments. It is when using live animals is considered legal, protected and regulated by law, because their ability to benefit humans is very important. Moreover, people of the world have improved their understanding about their lives, their health, the problems related to health and how to solve them, how to prevent them in the future by carrying out such experiments on animals.

Animal Testing for Research — All over the planet, animals are locked in cages, away from their habitat and against their will, in testing laboratories where they just seat defenseless and in fear for the unknown. It is a common practice that animals are used for medical testing in order to find compatibility chemicals to either, cure certain diseases, or as simple as hair products and skin cosmetics. The use of these types of chemicals in animals is to prevent testing on humans and cause some type of injury due to incompatible organism with the human body.

Animal Experimentation Is Not Ethical! — An ongoing conflict among the human species is that of animal cruelty, whether it be by scientific experiments, tests, or research. I frequently wonder, do the individuals performing these atrocious tasks ask themselves if what he/she is doing is ethically correct. I believe that it is not right to treat animals in such an inhumane manner, but to treat them as our own kind, for they are clever, spirited beings. These helpless animals cannot defend themselves against abuse. In my opinion, it is morally appropriate to grant the same rights to animals as we human beings acquire and to end, or even just to minimize, animal cruelty in laboratories.

Animal Experimentation: Hero or Villain? — In Egypt during 300 BC, a man by the name of Erasistratus conducted a study to see what happened to body fluids that had been extracted. How he conducted this experiment differed from other anatomists previous attempts. Instead of testing on humans, he put birds in concealed boxes and restricted them from receiving food. Erasistratus’ new sense of observing went down in history as the first recorded usage of animal experimentation (Soave). Animal testing has since happened all over the world. As time has drawn on, people have made this a controversial topic and have debated whether a animal experimentation is truly acceptable or unacceptable in a society like ours today.

The Ethics of Animal Use in Biomedical Research — Both in and out of philosophical circle, animals have traditionally been seen as significantly different from, and inferior to, humans because they lacked a certain intangible quality – reason, moral agency, or consciousness – that made them moral agents. Recently however, society has patently begun to move beyond this strong anthropocentric notion and has begun to reach for a more adequate set of moral categories for guiding, assessing and constraining our treatment of other animals. As a growing proportion of the populations in western countries adopts the general position of animal liberation, more and more philosophers are beginning to agree that sentient creatures are of a direct moral.

Animal Rights: Turning the Tables — Abraham Lincoln once said, “Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.” Many animal activists see a strong comparison between animals used for research or entertainment and slaves (Day, 1994). Every year millions of animals are killed while being used for testing and entertainment. Some may say that animals do not have emotions so using them for these types of activities is acceptable. In spite of that, a huge question that arises is whether or not animals should have rights. [tags: animal activist, animals right]
