WHAT IS ANIMAL ABUSE?
-the human infliction of suffering or harm upon non-human animals, for purposes other than self-defense or survival
GOAL!
Thank you!
Two types of animal cruelty
Deliberate abuse includes:

-beating
-shooting
-stabbing

Animal neglect includes
:
-necessary food
-water
-shelter or vet care
Companies that still test on animals
Mars
L’Oreal
The Clorox Company
Colgate-Palmolive
Vivisection or animal testing
Vivisection

- the practice of performing operations on live animals for the purpose of experimentation or scientific research
Whats the issue?
-vivisection is causing the death of millions of animals all around the world

-innocent animals are being tested on in laboratories for :
biology lessons,
medical training,
curiosity-driven experimentation,
and chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics testing
in order to achieve product efficiency or advance in scientific research
-These are only SOME companies still use the method of vivisection in order to test their new products
Why vivisection?
-Humans tend to feel more comfortable/safer knowing that a new product has been tested on a live animal FIRST before any self use

-This is one efficient way of testing new products

-It is the law that all medical drugs need to be tested before their release
Is this the most efficient way?
No it is not!
-Recent findings indicate not all drugs will react the same way on humans as they do on animals.

-The assumption that animals will respond to drug tests like “little humans “has been proven to be wrong over the past few decades since various tests have shown that the opposite is true—animals respond differently and unpredictably
Modern Technology!

Modern methods that avoid animal testing include :

-sophisticated tests using human cells and tissues (also known as in vitro methods)

-advanced computer-modeling techniques (often referred to as in silico models)

-studies with human volunteers

- Some scientists are using synthetic skin to measure how drugs travel through the body.

-Other scientists use human cell cultures to test how drugs work
EXAMPLE
The TGN1412 drug was tested both in animals and in humans and ended in disaster.
While the animals reacted normally it showed life threatening side effects in humans!
THE TWO MAIN SIDES
1. morally and ethically wrong


2. it advances further scientific research
It is morally wrong to test on animals if it inflicts any pain or discomfort on them. This kind of science is considered to be “bad” science, since it involves pain and even death to living creatures
Morally and ethically wrong
advance in scientific research
. Animals have helped greatly with the experimentation of new drugs and have helped strengthen the lives of human beings
EXPERT opinion
Dr. Laura Waters (Doctor of pharmaceuticals and professor)

-Believes in alternate ways to avoid animal testing

-Feels obligated to test on animals since it is the law

-organizes charities in order to fund further research in alternate ways of experimentation
Social Factors
Since a large number of people believe that animal testing is nothing but cruel and immoral, social movements tend to form within groups.

- Protest crowds form in society which can sometimes become hostile.

-This kind of group can shape people’s behavior and can become “infectious” (more people will join in hostile behavior).

-This factor causes distress to humans that care deeply for every living thing on this planet.

-Relates to Stanley Milgrams experiment

-What are people willing to do in order to further research in science?

-The laboratories that still use the method of vivisection obey orders from their superior conducting the experiments or scientific research.

-Even though these scientists know that it is unethical to experiment on an innocent animal, they convince themselves that it is okay to do so since it is helping science and the development of new medicine or cosmetics/products

Psychological factors
