It?s hypercritical for humans to torment and kill, innocent and unprotected animals if they talk about their own rights.

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. In my opinion, it is morally appropriate to grant the same rights to animals as we human beings acquire and to end, or even just to minimize, animal cruelty in laboratories....   [tags: ethics, animal rights, rhetorical] 731 words

A fundamental question of this debate is whether the functions of animal testing and research are morally and ethically justified.

The supporters of animal testing believe that it is illogical for humans to place anthropocentric values in animals citing that they can not be moral equals to mankind (Fox 3, 6)....   [tags: essays research papers] 1544 words
