Transcript of Animal Rights

no experimenting on animals

no breeding and killing animals for clothes food, or medicine

no selective breeding for any reason other than the benefit of the animal. Is Animal Research Really Worth It? Pass The Animal Rights Bill "Turning Around" The Way Animals Are Treated Latha The Animals Hannah Myths: 1.When you test shampoo on animals, you simply rub it on their fur. 2.Testing cosmetics on animals tells us whether the products are safe. 3.All animals in laboratories have some legal protection. http://www.dosomething.org/tipsandtools/11-myths-about-animal-testing The Animal Doctrine Animal Rights: to stop animal exploitation The Effects: Illness Skin Irritation Pain Genetic Mutation Death According to Science blogs, 88% of stillbirths are caused by drugs based on animal testing. The fact is NO! Animal research is definitely not worth it, and there are facts that will prove to you why. From peta.org, Most animal experiments are not important to human health, they do not contribute to the medical advances and many are done simply out of curiosity and do not even promise to cure illnesses. The only reason people are under the misbelief that animal experiments help humans is because the media, experimenters, universities and lobbying groups exaggerate the possibility of animal experiments to lead to new cures. It is disgusting to note that less than 2% of all human illnesses are suffered by animals. Only 2%! and yet we use them to find cures for human illnesses. How selfish man is. Animals and humans are different anatomical and physiological. What’s interesting is that animals are almost always used in cancer research, but they never get the human form of cancer which affects membranes like the lungs. Most medical experts say that data collected from animal tests cannot be used safely on human patients. An estimated 103,800 animals are not administered with any medication to decrease or remove the pain caused by the testings on the animal. The pain is not minimal but extreme. The procedure being conducted on the animal may be extremely painful. When humans are petrified at the proposal of getting 'poked' by a medical practitioner, wonder what happens to animals at the idea of being tested upon? There’s a record of more than 400 methods that can effectively replace animal experiments. It is important to consider these options since at least thirty-three animals die in laboratories each second worldwide. There is no doubt that we can progress in the medical aspect without abusing animals. Non-animal experiments Using human tissue in toxicity testings, to test drugs, chemicals, cosmetics, and consumer products, which is more accurate than the animal models. (neavs.org). The Lethal Dose 50 (LD50) test, forces animals to ingest toxic and lethal substances to the endpoint of where 50% of the animals in the study die—and those that do not are later killed. The replacement for the LD50 test measured toxicity at a precision rate of 77-84% accuracy compared to the LD50 rate of 52-60%. Innovative biotechnology firm Hµrel, developed a 3-D in vitro (test tube) human "liver" that scientists can use to study the breakdown of chemicals in the human body. This technology effectively mimics human organs and can be used to test cosmetics, drugs, and chemicals. VaxDesign's groundbreaking Modular IMmune In vitro Construct (MIMIC) system uses human cells to create a working dime-sized human immune system for testing the safety and effectiveness of HIV/AIDS vaccines. This in vitro method is faster than animal tests, can be used to test vaccines on the immune systems of many different human populations at once, and can replace cruel, ineffective tests on animals in which monkeys are infected with HIV-like diseases and forced to endure acute weight loss, major organ failure, breathing problems, and neurological disorders before they die excruciating deaths or are killed. (peta.org) Instead of cutting into and damaging the brains of rats, cats, and monkeys, researchers are using advanced human-based brain-imaging and -recording techniques such as MRI, fMRI, EEG, PET, and CT. These modern techniques allow the human brain to be safely studied down to the level of a single neuron. Not only do these techniques eliminate the use of animals, they also provide rich data about the human brain that could not be collected through the use of animals. Antibodies—which are used to research, diagnose, and fight diseases and have traditionally been created by injecting cancer cells into mice—can now be produced using DNA that's made in a laboratory or taken from human cells. Synthetic skin can provide a chemical corrosivity determination in as little as 3 minutes to four hours, unlike animal testing that often takes two to four weeks. DakDak, an alternative test used to measure the effectiveness of sunscreens, was reported to do in days what it takes animal studies months to do, and estimates that it can test five or six products for less than half the cost to study a single product in animals. The traditional testing of chemicals using animals can take up to five years per substance and cost millions of dollars, while non-animal alternatives can test hundreds of chemicals in a week for a fraction of the cost. Non-animal testings are more environmentally friendly. In toxicity testing, researchers breed, test, and ultimately dispose of millions of animals as pathogenic or hazardous waste. Cruelty-free testing does not damage the environment or create harmful waste. The Animal Doctrine

no hunting

no use of animals for hard labor

no zoos or use of animals in entertainment Most animals are packed in a cage-like environment to perform the experiments. In a world where humans are free to practice their right to freedom and independent living, it is saddening that animals are at the lab assistant's and the tester's mercy, and experimented upon in dangerous, painful ways Why not save these beautiful animals Cosmetic Testing is

Animals are observed for toxic effects.

Animals are then killed.
