This brings attention to the justification of animal experiments. The moral status of animals and the benefit are highly controversial parts of the concern. Against animal experiments Most people would agree that animals have some kind of moral status. This presents a shift of view from past that animals had no moral status and respecting them was merely for protecting human property. Today, this question has evolved to how much moral status and what right animals have.
In today’s humanity, multitude amounts of animals are mistreated and eradicated during animal testing. Because testing on animals has become a law throughout the world, a lot of scientists have not realized the immortality that has been put upon the animals. Is it fair to test cosmetics and potential carcinogens on animals? During each year, millions of animals are tested on for biomedical research, chemical testing and training (Lee Bowman 2011). Testing cosmetics and chemicals on animals is catastrophic because it is abusive, detrimental and carcinogenic.
If humans were tested instead of animals, many people would have an outrage for the suffering, and then why not protest for animals. Numerous products and medicines are animal test free; wh... ... middle of paper ... ...ong in every point of view. 24 Works Cited “Pain & Distress in Research Animals” The Humane Society.

Everyone thinks a lot of good things can come out of animal research but that is not the case. Animal research is not beneficial, for us or the animals. With this in mind, I would definitely have to say one major con of animal testing is the loss of many animal lives. If the animals do not die in the research they are then put to sleep. “This adds to the estimated 90 million animals killed worldwide for research” (Medical Animal Experimentation).

Some scientist feel that they could find healthy alternatives, while others feel that they have the right to use animals in their experiments, and that the animals are inferior to humans; therefore, have no rights ("Controversy of Animal Testing - About Animal Testing (UK)"). Scientist preform a lot of experiments on animals, but more than ninety percent of them are for human benefit (“Adams, Stephen”). Things like cosmetics, vaccinations, and solution to diseases. A major flaw within doing these things is that animals and humans have different genetic structures. By them having different genetic structures it makes it difficult because they could find something that works for an animal but could harm a human and the other way around.
