In the coming years, hopefully, more regulations can be passed to ensure that all animal’s lives are protected during experimentation.
Animal testing is often viewed as “unethical” or “cruel.” However, certain laws have been enacted to protect the rights of animals used in experimentation. Crawford explains that these laws include the Animal Welfare Act, which is stated under the Regulations and Standards in the Code of Regulations.
Crawford also states in his article, “the act ensures that animals being used for research be cared for in humane conditions by a licensed veterinarian…
Another part of animal testing is to help promote a product or to understand the effects of those products and the percentile of which those effects may cause.
This might include testing makeup, lotions, or food products.
Animal testing should be allowed because any means used to advance treatment of human diseases should be available to medical researchers. "The Animal Welfare Act Protects Animals from Abuse in Scientific Research." Animal Experimentation (2013): n.
Many medical advancements have been made possible due to animal research. "Medical Testing on Animals Is Cruel and Unnecessary." Medical Testing (2014): n. Abstract With animal testing, the killing and harming innocent animals, being around for centuries with little change, will exploiting the facts that the public does not know about, help put an end to all the product and medication testing on animals?Animal testing main support is from those people that believe the animals in our world today, are a close link to humans, and therefore allow them to be tested to see what effects drugs, products, or foods have on our society.A second opinion humans have, is that animal testing is a cruel and inhumane, torturous act, and should not be done to anyone or anything, no matter what the benefit might be to the human species (Contributor, 2012).There are many names, animal testing, animal experimentation or animal research, it all refers to the experimentation carried out on animals.Its main purpose in why it is used, is to assess the safety and effectiveness of everything from medication to cosmetics.My purpose for this subject is to let people think twice about buying a product, or hopefully helping put this inhuman testing to an end. The history of animal testing goes back to the writings of the Greeks in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.Aristotle (384-322 BC) and Erasistratus (304-250 BC) were among the first group of people to perform experiments on living animals. This is the most detrimental aspect of animal testing.on animal testing I have come to realize my personal view has now changed since the start of my research.Before undergoing heavy study into animal testing I believed that all types of animal testing should be stopped, but now I believe that the idea is very beneficial and should only be done when the rights of the animal are considered.
