Animal testing should be banned
Debate Rounds (3)
My first statement will be the definition of animal testing if you didn't know.
Animal testing Is basically a system in which major companies test their products on different types of animal species. Many people have been against this statement, such as a girl who died in the process of protecting an endangered species.
But, if we banned animal testing, we would have to test it on plants or humans! Imagine someone saying, "Hey! It works! This mushroom is reacting to this medical operation!
These arguments prove the declaration of how animal testing should be banned."
First, I would like to start with some statistics.
According to CIA world factbook 2012, 100 million animals are burned, crippled, and killed in labs every year. Why would that be right to continue doing? Also, according to the same source several cosmetic tests commonly performed on mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs include:
skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed on shaved skin or dripped into the eyes without any pain relief.
repeated force-feeding studies that last weeks or months, to look for signs of general illness or specific health hazards.
widely condemned "lethal dose" tests, where animals are forced to swallow large amounts of a test chemical to determine what dose causes death.
So now that we know the destruction of Animal testing, let us explain why it would not effect our environment.
First, a great many companies are advertising "no animal testing." This seems to be something that is growing larger and larger due to the drive to save animal's lives. In addition, scientists are creating molecular compound breakdown devices that can predict the result of a drug without testing it on a living thing. This is done by examining the structure of a molecule and the effect it has on the cosmos. This technology will continue to increase and animal testing will become less necessary.
So the plan I am proposing is this: By one years time, animal testing will become illegal to where no IPA drugs or medicines are tested on animals.
One years time will be plenty of time to break our reliability on animal testing. The murdering of animals is something that must be stopped, which is why it should be banned.
If you want, I can friend you and maybe give you some advice
