One of the most touchy aspects of our relationship with animals is the use of animals in laboratory sciences. Some manufactures of cosmetics and household products still conduct painful and useless tests on live animals, even though no law requires them to do so. Some people, called anti-vivisectionists, are at one extreme in their concern. They want an abolition of all experiments on live animals. At the other extreme there are those who say that it is quite all right for us to do whatever we like to animals.
Animal testing is brutal and deprives animals of very minimal rights. Testing on animals can lead to inaccurate results harming both animals and humans. Living in the conditions that animals in laboratories do, is scarring for life and experimentations are harmful and cruel. Animal Testing is not necessary and wastes expert scientist’s time and work on unethical experiments with inaccurate outcomes. Humans have become conscienceless, but we can change that by saving innocent creatures from unimaginable harm.
Animals Rights Is it fair that animals have to go through abuse neglect and torture every day over a simple fact that humans do not believe animals do not have rights? Humans use and kill animals for food or clothing. Because people or humans think of animals as property so they do as they please with animals Some people believe that animals should be treated in the same way humans are and have familiar rights, where others think that it is more important to use them as they desire for food and medical research. This Paper will discuss both points of view. With and explanation of animals, people believe it is acceptable for several reasons.

Animals used for experimentation are still being tortures, experimented on, and killed today. The research animals’ lives lie in the hope that the animal-rights activists will put an end to animal research. Since animals are different from humans, experimenters are wasting time and hurting animals only to find little that works on human beings.
Evidenced by the researchers’ compassion, humans’ feelings towards animals are very personal. In the article, “An Ethical Argument Against Vivisection”, “Animals are seen simply as resources – as little more than products to make our lives more convenient ... ... middle of paper ... ... we are morally obligated to protect infants, the developmentally disabled, and the mentally ill” (“An Ethical Argument Against Vivisection”). Humans have to realize that the choice is in their hands. Animal testing is wrong and people must stand up for animals because no one else can. Works Cited "ANIMALS IN SCIENCE."
More importantly animal testing is cruel, unethical, and often unreliable; especially when those same results can be produced by other methods. Some people believe that animal research will create such great benefits for the human race that it is morally acceptable to destroy a few animals. Even though animal research only benefits humans if their outcomes are valid and can be of use. Unfortunately, most of the test results are considered unreliable (Animal Liberation Humane Education, 2014). The standard testing of medical devices and new medications calls for the exploitation of animals from blinding them to vivisection (dissection of an animal while alive and awake).
Why are humans authorised to conduct such inhumane things, who gave humans the power of heartlessly torturing feeble animals? Rodents and rabbits have become the animal of choice for scientists to use for testing because they are the few animals still ethical to test on. These scientists are embedding ailments into the animal like AIDS and cancer where the animal is put through the agony of the disease. These animals are suffering the pain that these diseases are causing so to test whether a specific drug works. The drug may work but may also contain fatal side effects on the test subject (Choose cruelty free n.d).
Animals and people are alike in many ways; they both feel, think, behave, and experience pain. Thus, animals should be treated with the same respect as humans. Yet animals' rights are violated when they are used in research because they are not given a choice.

Humans cannot justify making life better for themselves by randomly torturing and executing thousands of animals per year to perform laboratory experiments or to test products.
Unethical, cruel, and disturbing. These are just a few words that come in mind when Society thinks about animal testing. The animals used in laboratory tests and experiments are put through hours and hours of painful and traumatizing tests daily, doing this is wrong and should not be done. What is this country doing to stop this torture? They are doing absolutely nothing.
Scientists use animals instead of humans because experimenting against humans is viewed as impractical and unethical. The debate of animals being used in commercial products and educational exercises is an emotionally stimulated issue going on in modern society. Many animal rights groups, including PETA, have found that the way that animals are being treated during testing is morally wrong. Emotion may be the determining factor in deciding whether a person believes that animal testing is ethical or unethical. The use of animal testing has been beneficial, discovering many different medications that have saved human lives.
