Transcript of Animal Rights

Animal Rights
If the next time you walked into a mall, all products were clearly labeled as either:

Would that affect what you would buy?
Tested on animals
Not tested on animals
Brands that use animal testing include:
The Catholic Viewpoint
Infringements of Animal Rights include:
Factory Farming
Animal Testing
Abuse & Cruelty
The Five Freedoms
1. Freedom from Hunger & Thirst
2. Freedom from Discomfort
3. Freedom from Pain, Injury, or Disease
4. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour
5. Freedom from Fear & Distress
although these freedoms have been defined, they are not legitimate rights that are entitled to animals
organizations hope that society will eventually recognize and respect these 5 freedoms for the welfare of animals
Should animals be entitled to their own set of rights? If so, why?
In Your Opinion..
Human rights apply to all human beings regardless of their nationality, religion, gender, colour, etc.
As we know,
food & water
daily walks
trips to the vet
medical treatment
love & affection
factory farms/pens
fed growth stimulants
deprived of natural sun
trips to the slaughterhouse
tag numbers
no love & affection
Why is it that in society, animals such as dogs and cats seem to have their own set of rights separate from farm animals?
"God entrusted animals to the stewardship of those whom he created in his own image. Hence it is legitimate to use animals for food and clothing. They may be domesticated to help man in his work and leisure. Medical and scientific experimentation is a morally acceptable practice if it remains within reasonable limits and contributes to caring for or saving human lives. "
In regards to the use of animals, the Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
What are these "
reasonable limits
" that the Catechism is referring to?
The Catechism defines these
reasonable limits
as not causing any unnecessary pain, suffering or deaths of the animals being tested upon.
Catholic Viewpoint continued...
"One can love animals; one should not direct to them the affection due only to persons"
We are called to show kindness to animals but cannot love them equally as we love other humans
For those that have had pets, do any of you love your pets as if they were truly part of your family? If so, is there anything wrong with that?
Father Neiman's Viewpoint
Animal testing, especially in today's modern world, is abuse of creation
The Church is opposed to any
testing on animals
There are definitely alternatives that can be used instead
What is the point of animal testing?
to market products, a company must prove that it is safe for use
scientists believe that similarities between humans and animals allow for test results on animals to be valid proof of safety
Animal Testing for Medical Research
Animals for the use of Entertainment
"Keeping animals in zoos and circuses to entertain human beings is selfish & inhumane."
Do you agree?
In conclusion...
As the video suggested, animal testing has the possibility to lead to medical breakthroughs such as the cure to Ebola.
Does the end justify the means?
Father Neiman said that:
most cases
, the means are immoral and not required
Immoral means outweigh the beneficial end
End does not justify the means
Organizations say that:
all cases
, the means are immoral and not required
Immoral means outweigh the beneficial end
End does not justify the means
