Transcript of Persuasive Speech on Animal Testing

Animal testing has become a routine process in the cosmetic industry over the last decade. Not only is the practice inhumane, but is also thought by many researchers and scientists to be ineffective. Half the testing researchers do on animals react differently on humans; therefore they waste their time hurting innocent animals.
In 2009, the Euro group for Animals (EU) passed a law to ban testing animals for cosmetic purposes, and in 2013 it was updated so it is illegal to sell products that have been tested on animals anywhere in the world. The EU is alone in this venture, however the leading animal testing nations which include the United States, Canada, Brazil, and China all continue to test on animals.
It is our job to be the voice for creatures who cannot speak up for themselves. As a nation we need to make it our priority to come together and ensure the safety of our beloved pets.

Persuasive Speech on Animal Testing/Cruelty

I have always felt strongly about animal rights, and cruelty to animals, so I decided to do my speech on something less talked about and often avoided, which is animal vivisection- in other words, animal testing.
Most tests are conducted on a variety of animals, including rats, monkeys, rabbits, kittens, and dogs, and are used to determine whether or not a product is safe for human usage. Two of the common tests are skin and eye irritation tests, or the Draize test, where the animal (often a rabbit in this case) is put in stocks, has its eyelids “clipped” so that it cannot blink, or has it’s stomach shaved.
Here's the website on how to help stop animal testing for cosmetics.

The website I have linked below show's what testing they do on certain animals.

In conclusion, animal testing is not reliable and is very expensive. Animal testing is inhumane and there is no excuse for anyone to still commit this act. I suggest that governments fully ban animal testing, so that the world becomes a better and safer place for both animals and humans.
