Animal Experimentation Is Not Ethical! - An ongoing conflict among the human species is that of animal cruelty, whether it be by scientific experiments, tests, or research. I frequently wonder, do the individuals performing these atrocious tasks ask themselves if what he/she is doing is ethically correct. I believe that it is not right to treat animals in such an inhumane manner, but to treat them as our own kind, for they are clever, spirited beings. These helpless animals cannot defend themselves against abuse.

The Case for Animal Rights - "The Case For Animal Rights" written by Tom Regan, promotes the equal treatment of humans and non-humans. I agree with Regan's view, as he suggests that humans and animals alike, share the experience of life, and thus share equal, inherent value. To begin with, Regan argues that people tend to believe that animals are 'unaware' of pain, and because humans are capable of announcing when in pain, it is thus considered morally wrong to harm a human being, than an animal. This type of thinking falls under the indirect duty views, which suggests that animals have no connected relationship, or direct link to humans, unlike humans have to their own species....   [tags: Pro Animal Rights Essay]

Animal Testing Used to Aid Human Development Should Be Decreased to a Minimum - Animals are held accountable for experiencing pain for humans to get the best out of products. People believe in order to advance products, animals must undergo rigorous procedures. Animals endure pain, grieve from loneliness, and yearn to walk freely. Instead, all they can do is involuntary sit in fear and wait patiently for the next terrifying, painful operation that will be performed on them. Most of the time, the results are not accurate since humans and animals differ greatly. Considering limitation factors, I believe human products should be tested on for our safety but without having to harm animals....   [tags: animal abuse, animal rights] 843 words

Animal Overpopulation - There can be no doubt that shelters in the United States are overcrowded, feral cats roam our city streets, thousands of dogs live in grotesque conditions in puppy mills across the country, and yet most American citizens when polled will readily declare that their cat or dog is like ‘a member of the family’. The state of companion animals in this country is precarious at best; caught between scientists who subscribe to Descartes’s idea of ‘anima ex machina’ (unfeeling, a living example of biological processes without the status of ‘being’) and the more common phenomenon of people who pamper their pets in ways that most people would envy....   [tags: Animal Rights ]
