Animal Testing Discussion - The major ancient philosophers, Thomas Aquinas and Rene Descartes, argue that animals lack a moral status because they do not engage in rational thought, are not conscious, and do not behave morally (Wilson, 2001).

Should these animals be liberated. A logical person would say the benefits justify the research. Without animal testing, products would be based on theory. No one would want to use something, which may damage eyes, be poisonous, cancerous, and cause birth defects. Animals used in testing are not from the endangered species list; also many of the types of animals used are killed each year by rat or mouse traps, animal control, exterminators, and animal shelters....   [tags: essays research papers] 390 words

Animal Testing is Unethical - "There will come a day when such men as myself will view slaughter of innocent creatures as horrible a crime as the murder of his fellow man- Our task must be to free ourselves- by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature and its beauty." -Albert Einstein (1879-1955). Picture this: You're locked living inside a closet without control over any aspect of your life. You can't choose when you eat or what you eat, how you will spend your time, whether or not you will have husband or wife or children, and if you do, who that person will be....   [tags: Ethics] 1378 words

The living creatures echo throughout the building as if the entrapped animals are able to sense their fate. Lying on a table are several rabbits strapped down with tiny cups attached to their bellies. These rabbits go through an enormous amount of pain due to the fact that they are not given painkillers of any sort. Sadly, these animals are being used for scientific experimentation.

Animal Testing - Animal Testing Over one million people have benefited from information gathered in animal testing and research. In the past, animal testing has been a touchy subject for people to talk about. Until recently, scientists did not treat animals with the utmost respect and even used such methods as vivisection, or basically operating on a live animal without any form of anesthetic, as a means of testing on animals. It is obvious why people would be against animal testing in the past, but now technology and new laws have brought us into a new era in which animal testing can be much more humane when it is used....   [tags: Science Argumentative Persuasive Essays]

The Benefits of Animal Testing are Too Great to Stop - Animal Testing Animal testing began when William Harvey used animals 400 years ago to find out how blood circulated through the body. The "modern" era of animal research however started about 150 years ago with the rise of physiology as a science. It was very different back then. There were no anesthetics or effective painkillers, so the animals suffered a great deal, as did patients. Scientists learned that putting animals, or humans through that type of torture was inhumane. Consider having to have a leg amputated, which was not uncommon in those days due to the fact that infections got very severe without the use of antibiotics, without even so much as an anesthetic to control the pain....   [tags: essays research papers] 773 words

Animals such a pigs and goats were first used to practice surgeries before applying them to humans. From there, humans have begun to test other operations and drugs on both living and nonliving animals. Evidence of experiments and dissections done on animals can be seen as far back as 500 BC.Without animal testing, many of the medicines humans use today for basic survival such as the insulin used for diabetics would not exist....   [tags: animal testing, animal research]
