1, 1991 The issue of animal experiments is straightforward if we accept that animals have rights: if an experiment violates the rights of an animal, then it is morally wrong, because it is wrong to violate rights.The possible benefits to humanity of performing the experiment are completely irrelevant to the morality of the case, because rights should never be violated (except in obvious cases like self-defence).And as one philosopher has written, if this means that there are some things that humanity will never be able to learn, so be it.This bleak result of deciding the morality of experimenting on animals on the basis of rights is probably why people always justify animal experiments on consequentialist grounds; by showing that the benefits to humanity justify the suffering of the animals involved. Those in favour of animal experiments say that the good done to human beings outweighs the harm done to animals.This is a consequentialist argument, because it looks at the consequences of the actions under consideration.It can't be used to defend all forms of experimentation since there are some forms of suffering that are probably impossible to justify even if the benefits are exceptionally valuable to humanity.
and okay i see where your coming from with the animal abuse thing but you must realize that those animals are there because the people advertizing "ADVERTIZING" the animals on tv are tooo cheap to take care of the animals themselves when we the people dont have the money to spend on them cause we are going through a bad crisis right now and if you think about it those animals will probably die in like two days after those commercials and with animal experimentation it benifits not just us but the animals that u are sore hearted for because with testing we come up with something to bring those animals back to their feet and survive.
When I got home, I think everybody, including myself, was sick of the war. We abhorred it. It was not only cruel, it was absurd. Foreigners came to our country from out of the blue and forced us to take up arms. Don’t you think that’s absurd? We just wanted to be prosperous and live like other people. Of course we had to fight to protect our country but we were really sick of the war. Deep down we didn’t like it. Casualties were enormous. And not just that – our savings, our houses, our plants and animals, everything was wasted by that war.
Innumerable educational institutes, medical schools, pharmaceutical companies, and several other scientific institutes use animal experimentation for research purpose.
Animal testing is not just restricted to product testing, but goes well beyond that.
