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.
“People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), with more than six hundred thousand members, is the largest animal rights organization in the world. It was founded in 1980, PETA is dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals. PETA operates under the simple principle that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment.”-PETA
Some of the tests that people perform on animals are Acute toxicity tests, commonly called lethal dose or poisoning tests. They determine the amount of a substance that will kill a percentage, even up to 100 percent, of a group of test animals.
In these tests, a substance is forced by tube into the animals\' stomachs or through holes cut into their throats. It may also be injected under the skin, into a vein, or into the lining of the abdomen; mixed into lab chow; inhaled through a gas mask; or introduced into the eyes, rectum, or vagina. Experimenters observe the animals\' reactions, which can include convulsions, labored breathing, diarrhea, constipation, emaciation, skin eruptions, abnormal posture, and bleeding from the eyes, nose, or mouth. This kind of testing is very inhumane, and for what porpose do they do this? PETA tries to stop this kind of animal testing.
It is very diffucult to find a company that doesn’t test on animals for unreasonable purposes. More than 500 manufacturers of cosmetics and household products that have shunned animal tests. These companies take an alternatives available today, including cell cultures, tissue cultures, corneas from eye banks, and sophisticated computer and mathematical models. Companies can also formulate products using ingredients already determined to be safe by the FDA. Most cruelty-free companies use a combination of methods to ensure safety, such as maintaining extensive databases of ingredient and formula information and employing in vitro tests and human clinical studies. PETA supports these companies, and I think that these are logicall experemants.
They could use computers, or tissue samples.
Animal cruelty is a very big problem that should be stopped. It is not amusing or right.

The Taming Of The ShrewThe Taming Of The Shrew The Taming of Katherine In Shakespeare\'s time, the ideal wife was subservient to her husband, and it was the husband\'s inherent duty to take care of his wife\'s money, property, and person, including both physical and moral welfare.

Animal FarmAnimal Farm Animal Farm Animal Farm is difficult to read seriously for the first few chapters, mostly because the main characters are animals that talk not only amongst themselves, but also with humans.

While food rations are low, no one is dying from starvation. One evening, an older member of the farm, a bo

Many advances in medicine and in the understanding of how organisms function have been the direct result of animal experimentation.

He kills wildlife--birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes--by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative--and fatal--health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer.

To do so one must live the best possible life. Aristotle believed that knowing

RacismRacism What are the Causes of this Situation? The causes of this situation is because that racism is a specific kind of prejudice based on the beliefs that there are differences among human races and that some are inferior to others. Traditionally, races have been defined as distinct populations that have specific physical traits based on their geographic origins. Racists believe that race not only determines a person’s appearance but also that a person’s character, intelligence and behaviour. R
