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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
