Why would any person in there right mind think that animal testing is a good thing. The harmful use of animals in experiments is not only cruel but also often ineffective. Animals do not get many of the human diseases that people do, such as major types of heart disease, many types of cancer, HIV, Parkinson’s disease, or schizophrenia. Instead, signs of these diseases are artificially induced in animals in laboratories in an attempt to mimic the human disease. Yet, such experiments belittle the complexity of human conditions which are affected by wide-ranging variables such as genetics, socio-economic factors, deeply-rooted psychological issues and different personal experiences.
It is not surprising to find that treatments showing ‘promise’ in animals rarely work in humans. Not only are time, money and animals’ lives being wasted (with a huge amount of suffering), but effective treatments are being mistakenly discarded and harmful treatments are getting through. The support for animal testing is based largely on anecdote and is not backed up, we believe, by the scientific evidence that is out there.Every year millions of animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed in crude chemical tests being forced to inhale chemicals that are bad to the body.
* Animal testing costs the American public over $136 billion annually.
Peoples opinions on animal testing differs, some are okay with it if it is for valid medical reasons and tests are done ethically, others refuse to accept animal testing full-stop.
In many cases when animal testing is done it is done when it is unnecessary – for example done when they know a certain ingredient will cause harm, when they know a certain ingredient will kill or harm the animal being tested upon, when testing has already been carried out on the ingredients being tested, when the product is no where near being released, on large numbers of animals when it is not necessary, or when it is simply not required.
There are also then cases when animals are unfairly or cruelly treated, Huntington Life Science is a good example of this, the animal testing was not only unethical but it was found those in the labs were badly treating the animals, such as beating the animals.
A lot of the products you use – shampoo, make-up, shower gel – contain chemicals that are bad for human health, many ingredients they need to test to see what the negative effects are, in many cases chemicals are tested in greater amounts to what is put into a product or chemicals are tested that are found not to be suitable for use on humans. Animal testing can do very nasty things to animals, from sores on their skin through to painful deaths – unfortunately some people do take things a little too far, such as PETA or Animal Aid, but there are real ethical issues in using animals for testing, medical testing many see as acceptable, however when it comes to products that are not necessary to humans such as make-up it is not seen as acceptable to see animals suffer or die.
I'm saying Noooooooooooooooo With or without the words under God, the Pledge of Allegiance is still a bad idea. Here s why. It was an American socialist certainly no friend of the U.S. Constitution who created the Pledge for a national magazine for young people published in Boston. We have the freedom of speak. It's called the First Amendment to the United States Constitution codifies the freedom of speech as a constitutional right. And also we all don't all pray or even have the same god.
