Transcript of Vivisection

When it first appeared? Vivisection The word vivisection first came up in the 1800s. The Roman physician Celsus claimed that in Alexandria in the 3rd century BCE physicians had performed vivisections on sentenced criminals. Cruelty to Animals Act of 1876 Animal Welfare Act The Animal Welfare Act, which concerns the housing, handling, feeding, and transportation of animals used in experiments, does not regulate the conditions and procedures that vivisectors can use. Research institutions can choose whether or not they wish to comply with the guidelines set forth in the Act. The USDA, which is responsible for enforcing the Animal Welfare Act, excludes mice, rats, birds, and farm animals from the Act; those animals thus find themselves without any protection. Where? Vivisection happens globally- all around the world. It happens in wide range of environments, including universities, hospitals, research institutes, independent laboratories that conduct research for companies, military bases and agricultural facilities.
Luckily there are places that have banned vivisection.
In 2000, California became the 1st state to pass a law limiting use of animals in product testing. New Jersey & New York became 2nd & 3rd states to pass such such legislation in 2007 & 2008 including Arizona.
United Kingdom stopped liscensing animal testing for cosmetic product and ingredients in 1998. Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany also banned cosmic testing.
In 2007, Israel passed a law banned the use of animals for testing cosmetic and cleaning products. What happens during Animal Experiments? One animal dies in a laboratory in the USA every second, in Japan every two seconds and in the UK every twelve seconds. http://www.animalrightshistory.org/animal-rights-law/victorian-legislation/1876-uk-act-vivisection.htm There was a rise of experimental physiology and the use of live animals, which a anti-vivisection movement had rise. The driving force, British Journalist Frances Power Cobbe, founded the British Victoria Street Society, which gave a rise to the British government's Cruelty to Animal Act of 1876. It regulated the usage of animals in experiments.

"A person shall not perform on a living animal any experiment calculated to give pain, except subject to the restrictions imposed by this Act. " But sadly
it still
goes on to this day. http://www.aavs.org/site/c.bkLTKfOSLhK6E/b.6457863/k.72C6/Laws_on_Product_Testing.htm#.UZrKU6K1dAM California http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-7m3Z-7epCjw/TeLJViErWjI/AAAAAAAAAtM/4Q_YCcl9tt4/s1600/California_Map.jpg New York http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/images/usa/new-york.jpg New Jersey http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/images/usa/new-jersey.jpg Arizona http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/images/usa/arizona.jpg United Kingdom http://lcs.maurois.clg14.ac-caen.fr/spip/IMG/jpg/United_Kingdom_rel87.jpg Austria http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/images/europe/austria.jpg Netherlands http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/images/europe/the-netherlands.jpg Belgium http://images.nationalgeographic.com/wpf/media-live/graphic/map-belgium-360x270-cb1349283472.gif http://theinterpretersfriend.org/indj/maps/germany-map.gif Germany Israel http://www.blog.standforisrael.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/israel-map-current-borders.jpg A video camera captured footage of vivisectionists taunting the injured animals, who were left with severe brain damage. (University of Pennsylvania)
To examine severe burns on live tissue, restrained pigs were burned alive with a flamethrower until their charred flesh could be removed in large pieces. (U.S. Army)
To measure injury recovery, vivisectionists strapped dogs down and cut apart the skin on their knees, leaving flaps. At the end of the study, all of the dogs were killed.

Some may be students in college, doctors, scientist, and farmers. Supporters who are against are any people & organizations like Last Chance for Animals and Peta.

http://www.ypte.org.uk/environmental/vivisection/77 What is Vivisection? Vivisection is the practice of cutting into or using invasive techniques on live animals.
The term is derived from the Latin word vivus, which means alive. Vivisection is commonly called animal experimentation and includes the use of animals for research, product testing and in education. http://fe867b.medialib.glogster.com/media/39/39862cbb0d276066dbb2c9ec1e71c7021e1b6c6e8f1f487509830e9ab66f3ae5/animal-testing-what-its-like.jpg http://www.animalliberationfront.com/Philosophy/Animal%20Testing/ThisisVivisection.jpg Rabbits are most frequent victims for animal experiments because they are mild-tempered and easy to handle, confine and breed - more than 241,000 of them are abused in the U.S. laboratories every year. http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-experimentation/rabbits-in-laboratories.aspx Fact: Pros: Cons: What are the good things
about vivisection? Doctors or Researchers try to mimic the conditions affecting humans (e.g. cancer, arthritis) in the animals they are experimenting on, to see if the medicine will be effective on treating them.
People have argued that will have had benefits for our human health from vivisection. Companies that DO use Animal Testing Always (Procter & Gamble) Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
Arm & Hammer (Church & Dwight) Horsham Pennsylvania 19044-6625
Axe (Unilever) Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey 07632
L'Oreal USA New York, New York 10017
M.A.C. Cosmetics (Estee Lauder) Markhem, Ontario

Herbal Essences (Procter & Gamble)
Glade (S.C. Johnson) Companies that DON'T use Animal Testing Avalon Organics
Aunt Bee's Skin Care

Deodorant Stones of America http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/companiesdonttest.pdf http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/companiesdotest.pdf ( There is alot of companies for both sides) •Their genetics are not exactly ours therefore this research is not only morally wrong but in accurate
•2,714,800 died in 2000
•There are alternatives!! Human cultures
Test tube studies
Computer models
•Cost America 16 billion dollars goes to vivisection a year Why Vivisection is problem? In the video "Testing 1.2.3" it shows and states the problems of Vivisection. The system of a human is not like a system of rabbit or a dog. You can't mimic the effects on them. This is not human and there are so many other alternatives that you don't have to be doing this. None of this gives you accurate results at all. Why do these animals who are defenseless have to suffer for biomedical experiments or for human health benifits? Why Should We Care? These acts are unhumane and this has been happening for so many years throughout this country. More defenseless animals are being killed for experiments. They mistreat them and have no care for these animals. In the laboratories and on agricultural farms, who gut animals who are still alive. This is a unacceptable and wrong thing to do. No animal should have to suffer. http://sooyeon11computerartym.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/vivisection2a11.jpg
