Ethical Effects Of Animal Testing

Satisfactory Essays
As quoted by Arthur Schopenhauer, “Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.” Animal testing is a topic of major interest and majorly problematic throughout the United States today. Animal testing is generally for a good cause, however the way the procedure is handled is completely wrong and unacceptable. For example, if dogs are a man’s best friend, why are 75,000 dogs tortured every year in the United States and given worms inside their bodies that will most definitely kill them, to be used for research? Even over 125,000 primates are shot for research alone in America every year and numbered off like victims of the Holocaust. Without a solution to regulate the severity of animal testing, America’s beloved pets could turn against human compassion and live long painful lives of fear and neglection. Being a pet owner like myself it is easy to feel the pain these animals go through, unaware of when it could be their turn to be brutally killed for scientific research. Just imagine if it was your cat, or dog, or horse, or whatever type of animal you may have, how would you feel, how would they feel? Ladies and gentleman, that is the question that needs to be asked when considering if the project is worth the detrimental effects it has on these poor animals, who do nothing but love their human “superiors.” The three topics I will be discussing today is the unnecessary cruelty involved in animal testing, how to regulate the process of animal testing to make it less inhumane, and the benefits of the solution and possible consequences that will occur if the solution is not implemented.

As you begin to take a stand in animal cruelty and defend the animals of the world, remember the unnecessary cruelty involved in animal testing, how to regulate the process of animal testing to make it less inhumane, and the benefits of the solution and possible consequences that will occur if the solution is not implemented. Humans cannot achieve the high value of morality if we do not view every creature equally and treat all creatures with compassion. With that being said I urge you to consider your personal beliefs, your pets, your family, how would you feel if these tests were being run on them? Answering that question I hope and I know you will begin to make a change and help save the animals of America.
