It is universally acknowledged that animals play an indispensable role in the scientific research at the cost of sacrificing their own lives. Animals are used in experiments because we can’t use humans. Animals should not be regarded to be at the same position as humans. The laws in humans’ world offer us a guarantee that each person has the right of not being hurt, if the application is also suitable in animals’ world, of course scientists should not be allowed to use animals in the experiments, however, if we want to protect the animals’ rights of not being hurt, in essence, we had already broke the laws of the nature, in accordance with this logic, wild animals should not be allowed to capture and hurt other animals as their food, thus how could provide food for them? It is conceivable that animals do not have senses of duties unlike people, so they should not have the same as humans. If you say you should not use animals just because they get hurt, then you should not use them as food too. These days everyone use many animals for food. We can survive by only eating vegetables. In fact we will be more healthy if we only eat vegetables. So if we can kill animals for such useless things then why can’t we use them for meaningful experiments? Based on this, although using animals for scientific experiments, such kind of action should not be criticized, at least from animal rights angle because the definition of human rights and animals are different. Unlike mistreating animals, the use of scientific research has a more meaningful and essential purpose. Another aspect I want to complement is that animals are not only play the roles of victims of the experiment , in fact, their contribution are not unrequited. Diseases not only pose a great threat to the human-beings, but also invade the bodies of the animals. If scientists succeed in working out the remedy by experiments, animals will survive as well as people with the help of the medicine. It is also significant to the future generations of animals . In many cases, humans use technology to help animals live better.
Scientific experiments are necessary for the survival of our species. Most people probably think nothing of eating a hamburger or swatting a mosquito, but experiments are cruel? Experimenting on animals has led to some of the best scientific breakthroughs of our current age. Most of us have lost family and friends to medical conditions such as cancer. These creatures make a sacrifice, but I do not see any people volunteering to replace them as test subjects.
Animals should definitely be used for experiments. If we look at the big picture, what has more value, a human life or an animal life?
Experiments don't have to necessarily mean harmful medical experiments, either. Experiments to figure out animal intellect, how animals respond to certain stimuli, and observation of their behaviors are perfectly legitimate experiments.
In the end, though, it isn't feasible trying to find large enough groups of people who are willing to undergo dangerous experiments that may end in permanent disfigurement or death. Without animals, science would have a very limited number of subjects to work with. Plus, I can imagine the number of lawsuits would skyrocket.
Testing is usually done on rodents.It is done so because rodents have the the ability to reproduce more faster than humans.We think is cruel to test on animals,but what happens when we eat meat?Where the cruelty go?If one rabbit is killed then millions of people are saved.Think for yourselves,if you have a injured human baby and a injured rabbit baby,whom would you save/
Forty reasons why we need animals in research
These points have been drawn up to provide an accessible resource for anybody discussing animals in research. We are happy to take your suggestions to add to our list.
•Animal research has played a vital part in nearly every medical breakthrough over the last decade.
•Nearly every Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine since 1901 has relied on animal data for their research.
•We share 95% of our genes with a mouse, making them an effective model for the human body.
•Animals and humans are very similar; we have the same organ systems performing the same tasks in more or less the same way.
•Animals suffer from similar diseases to humans including cancers, TB, flu and asthma.
•All veterinary research has relied on the use of animal research.
•While non-animal methods play an important part of biomedical research, they cannot replace all use of animals.
•In vitro methods and computer modelling play an important part complementing data from animal models.
•Many veterinary medicines are the same as those used for human patients: examples include antibiotics, pain killers and tranquillisers.
•Modern anaesthetics, the tetanus vaccine, penicillin and insulin all relied on animal research in their development.
•Modern surgical techniques including hip replacement surgery, kidney transplants, heart transplants and blood transfusions were all perfected in animals.
•Scanning techniques including CT and MRI were developed using non-human animals.
Animals should be used for testing because they play a meaningful role in scientific research and much more. They do not have the ability of humans and if you say that is horrible and dishonest then think: YOU eat meat too. If you eat meat to live then why not to save human lives? The moment you bite into your steak, think. You are doing this too, you are also killing. Testing is just another way to save human lives! That is why I think animal should be used for testing.
Animals should be used because its important we know that it is safe to used differnet medicene and other stuff that we are not sure will be right for humans. Also its only testing so it not like the animal is going to die during the process of it being testing that is why they should be used for experiments.
We can't test drugs and experiments on humans so we have to test them on animals. I think society should be allowed to test drugs on animals if it could save human lives and it is done in a humane way. That is why we need to test drugs and experiments on animals.
Who are we to value a human life over an animal's life? Animals should be seen as EQUAL beings and animal testing just isn't necessary, and it is very selfish to do. It is horrible that people are abusing innocent animals for testing and I hope it will stop some day.
I dont think so as it is very very wrong, We live in a society in which animas are eaten alot and now we dont need them to be tested. We can always test it no humans as frogs and mice are no different from us. I think it is wrong very wrong indeed
I really don't think that experimentation should be done using animals. Some cosmetic companies use fruits for doing this. What if we do it with humans? This is a very inhuman behavior in which animals are being killed and I strongly am against it. Non vegetarians eat animals, is that less that now people have started using them for experimentation..?
There isn't a single animal that can accurately mimic the complicated human condition. Instead, we now have real scientific technologies such as microfluidic chips and microdosing that analyze the effects of drugs on an entire human living system. Experimenting on animals is not necessary in this day and age.
There isn't one single animal that can accurately mimic the complicated human condition. We now have real scientific technologies such as microfluidic chips and microdosing that will analyze the effects of drugs on an entire living system, they analyze a human living system, this eliminates errors caused by species differences and resulting in data that is related to humans. It's not necessary to experiment on animals in this day and age.
Animals should not be used for experiments
If you keep on using the animal it will go endangered and go extinct. It will mess up the food chain:the fox eats the rabbits and we eat the fox so if the rabbits are use for experiments than the fox will not have food to eat and it will die than we will not have food to eat,
An animal is also a living being like us. The scientists are cruel to the animals. Over 1000000 animals are tortured every year. Most of the experiments don't even work! 92% of the drugs that worked on animals didn't work on humans. True, the medicine that does work on both animals and humans could save human lives, but the scientists are just killing millions of innocent animals' lives for a trade. An animal should be treated like one of us. They are also living beings.Imagine if a lion came up to you and poisoned you for no apparent reason. Just because animals can't tell us how much the drugs hurt doesn't mean we can take advantage of that. In fact, it's just like doing an experiment on mute person. Animals and humans are equals, so we should both be treated fairly.
Animals are living things just like us! What makes us better than them? Human beings are selfish creatures! How could we bring unbearable suffering and pain upon precious living things. Humans are not that different from animals; we are animals! It is vile and heartbreaking to know what studies can do; these tests negatively impact these animals that have no one to protect them. Babies are being separated from their mothers, animals are being forced to be confined in a prison, constantly being prodded, picked, scared, isolated, what the heck! What kind of people are we? We are sick!
No one has the right to make an animal suffer! I feel that SOME animal experiments are acceptable like looking for cures....... But MAKE UP companies have recently been experimenting on animas and is just un-necessary suffering for animals!!! God didn't create animals so we can have better looking make-up or nicer smelling perfume!! Animals and Humans should have similar rights!
No animals should not be able to be use for experimental things they should be able to be free and not be used for things that we can easily test on humans because animals are different from use so in think that humans would be a better chose for experimenting on
Animal testing is a stupid, painful and outrageous thing to do to animals. By pouring chemicals into their eyes and doing other horrible things to them is another way of commiting muder. Scientists are all saying "it's for science". We wouldn't want to have scientists do that to us, so why would we let them do it to animals? I hope I may have changed your stance in this debate, and not wasted your time by reading it!
Animals are also created by God. Nobody has the right to use them as a testing material for possibly dangerous drugs or medicines. Animals also have five senses like humans, they also need food, water, oxygen etc to survive and are similar to us in many other ways. Therefore, they should not be used for experiments.
I believe that no animal should ever have anything tested on it. Animals and humans both feel pain, the only difference is that animals are not able to express it as well as we can. They are still living creatures with emotions and deserve to be treated the same way as you would treat any person in this world. It’s a disgrace that people feel that they are allowed to force medication down the throats of innocent animals, what has the poor thing done to you.
It is a disgrace that animals should be used for scientific experiments. It is cruelty to animals. What have they ever done to hurt people. They are innocent animals that are getting killed in this world. You are taking an animals' life for nothing. It is cruelty to animals who haven't done anything.
Unethical for using animals in an innatural and cruel way, I think animal testing is very dangerous for humans. With animal testing the pharmaceutical factory can ask more public money saying that they have to pay for the animals they have (animal experimentation is expensive!).
And using animals the researchers can select the species of animals on the basis of the results they want obtain. Ex. Some animals die with diossine, other don't.
And when their drugs on the market will begin to kill people or to cause horrible diseases and reactions, the researchers will say that with animals the result was different, so it's not their fault. They want be paid! They don't care about human or animal welfare, rights etc. They are horrible people.
The animals are innocent and have done nothing to humans, yet we capture them from their natural habitats and lock them up to do dangerous and possibly painful experiments on them. Compared to those animals, us humans don't seem very humane. It is cruel and unjust and we only do it because we are selfish and don't seem to care about anything but ourselves.
Enough animals are dying around the world are because of diseases. The last thing we need are poor, hurt animals getting tested on some people need to know that animals are basically people they just cant talk and express there feelings to us. Lots of animals even die from scientific tests failing constantly.
Animals should not be used for scientific experiments. They feel pain the same as we do, the only difference is that they can't talk and express the feelings inside them but we can. Animal rights should be implemented to rescue the animals from these medical and scientific experiments. Animals are also living creatures. They have the right to live but these experiments have taken the lives of many innocent animals.
They should not be because there living creatures and they should not be treated different than humans! We are like them and they are like us so they should not be treated any different. Scientist have made many discoverers using animals but maybe we should test on dead animals than alive and well animals than letting the living animals suffer and die most of the time being tested on!
No, animals should not be used for experiments. Animals are living creatures who feel pain and discomfort. It is cruel to use them for experiments that cause them to suffer. If science needs to perform experiments, there are many, many prisoners who would likely agree to be guinea pigs if it might reduce some of their sentence.
Animals should not be used for experiments, ever. Animals are all very important and should be valued, not treated poorly. We don't need to use them to make scientific discoveries in today's day and age, we are much better than that and can find away around hurting harmless creatures who can't speak up.
