Animal Testing: Who is the real beast? - ... In these publications, activists constantly make the analogy between the work of abolitionists before the emancipation and the efforts of animal right activists. This analogy of racism and “speciesism” was brought about by a philosopher named Richard Ryder in 1985 and brings up the issue of research with animal subjects to be emotionally unpredictable for many people. (Sperling Susan – Applied Ethics in Animal Research Introduction pages 4-6) One of the biggest problems and the main reason why animal experimentation should be banned is the large percentage of birth defects that occur....   [tags: Animal Rights] 1131 words

The History and Purpose of The Animal Rights Movement - ... This side believes that many other animals are able to think to some extent and are certainly able to feel pain therefore non-human animals should be accorded rights. According to Peter Singer, professor of philosophy and director at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia and best known for his book Animal Liberation, he says “‘When humans fail to measure the capacity of animals to suffer, they become guilty of ‘speciesism,’ an injustice parallel to racism and sexism (Animal Rights Opposing Viewpoints, 1996).’” This fact is not to say that all animals must be equal, it does mean that all animals should given equal consideration....   [tags: Animal Rights]

Animal Testing Discussion - ... For example, does an earthworm have a moral status. What about a pig versus a dog. To consider that all biological organisms have a moral status and therefore, rights, seems quite absurd. People who advocate for animal rights largely concern themselves with the “higher animals.” Higher animals are those that can possess memories, participate in a social community, are conscious and aware, and can plan ahead. Many animals display a wide variety of behaviors that indicate that they have these characteristics....   [tags: Ethical Issues, Animal Ethics] 2305 words

Animals in Georgia - ... Animals such as the gray bats, manatees, false killer whales, wood rabbits, and other rare species are endangered as a result of the human’s overhunting activities (Golley 1962). One solution to save these rare species is sending them back to their natural habitats. This way the animals can adapt to their area and make a family, so the population can slowly progress. Many of these animals were brought over by the European, or Asian countries, which gives them a little background culture to their scientific name....   [tags: Animal Research ]

Animals' Right to Life - ... Cohen’s argument is misguided and in many respects false, where just because animals cannot respond or claim their right does not mean they are not entitled to the basic right of life. According to Cohen, “animals do not have such moral capacities. They are not morally self-legislative, cannot possibly be members of a truly moral community, and therefore cannot possess rights.” (Cohen, Page 95). Again, Cohen fails to recognize well accepted scientific principals of biology, ecology, and animal behavior, including those animals can also create their own communities and a lot of them function in a government type of structure such as bees and ants that have a queen or a king in their community....   [tags: Animal Rights]

Since tolerance increases the prevalence of parasites, researchers suggested that resistance will reduce the negative fitness of parasites. Animals do not have resistance to help them reduce the growth of parasites. Parasites can cause people or animals to behave negatively in a way that the hosts have no control over themselves because the nature of parasites is to move from one host to the next successfully (Olsen, 1962)....   [tags: Animal Research ]

The attitude about animal abuse differ between women and men is because men reflect a lower level of empathy than women, and that can result in men judging acts of violence differently (Pakaslanhti & Keltikanga- Jarvinen; 1997 as cited as Henry; 2008). Research has found that women have a stronger and broader moral strictures against aggression than men do (Perry, Perry & Rasmussen; 1986 as cited as Henry; 2008). Women appear to have a broader scope of what constitutes cruelty than men. When it comes to punishing people for abusing animals’ research showed that women recommended harsher punishments for acts of animal abuse than men and that recommended punishments were harsher when the victim was a puppy compared to when the victim was a chicken (Henry; 2008)....   [tags: Psychology, Conduct Disorder] 819 words
