Animal Cruelty

How would you like it if you were used in an experiment to see if the mascara your girlfreind used was safe? And then when they were done with you, they disposed of you and killed you off as if you didn’t matter. Well that’s what is being done to animals. They are being tested on. Sometimes scientist give animals radioactive material to eat to see how fast they die. If you know that the animal is going to die, why would you do something so inhumane for no apperant reason?

On the other hand, what if you were being tested on to see if a new kind of medicine could treat some kind of virus. Then you could help hundreds and hundreds of people. In the case, testing could be good. You never know the outcome. Scientists are currently doing research on this too. It would be great if you didn’t have to test on anything, but then you never know if a theory’s are accurate.

All in all, I do think it’s wrong to use animals if you know that what you’re doing is harmful. But in Algernon’s case I do think it was reasonable to use him. Even thought I don’t belive in animal testing, for this purpose I think it’s okay. It would be better to see how the operation turned out on a mouse, rather than a human. Although humans and mice are diffrent you could probably determine if the operation was safe for Charlie to use. From the book, you could see the operation’s benifits weren’t permenant, and could have harmful results.
