Did you know that last year over one hundred million animals died in labs in the U.S? These animals have suffered because people wanted to test many products and decided to use an animal as a victim. This practice hurt and killed innocent and helpless animals that do not deserve a death. This is why I think that animals should not be tested on.
Doing testing on animals is basically animal abuse, because animals all around the world are mostly either blinded, poisoned, and killed if they are tested on. The animals are forced to be in labs all their life, until they die. They do not have the ability to roam free as a regular animal would. Most animals are used to sunshine and grass. Animals being tested on always sit around doing practically nothing everyday of their awful lives, on concrete and behind bars in cages. For the most part these animals are in “jail” all day until they come out for a small section of their day to be tested on!
Some products that work on animals can be either dangerous or non affective on humans. The way a mouse or other testing animal reacts to a product might not always be the same as a human will react to that same product. Animal’s bodies are very different than yours, this can cause the product that worked on the animal might not work on you, which is a problem.
Over one hundred thousand deaths in America are caused by a products side effects that were not found by testing on animals. So its kind of pointless to test on animals when its already proven that sometimes it doesn’t work. What if theres a hugely helpful product that worked on animals and everyone was excited, but didn’t work on people? What if it hurt people instead? That would be super disappointing and angering to people.
But some people might disagree with me and say animals should be tested on. There are reasons how they prove their point. One of the reasons is that if you didn’t test on animals, who or what would you test on? People? Why would you want to test on people when there are many more animals in the world.
That is completely true and I completely agree with what other people might say. But, how would you feel if you were locked in a cage, had tubes and gotten drugs and products that could be deadly put inside of you, and never had freedom? It would be pretty awful, and the sad thing is that that’s what happens to animals being tested on everyday.
These are my reasons due to why animals should not be tested on. Its basically animal abuse, they can be non affective if they have side effects on animals and can be dangerous to people, and is pointless. Now you see how I think about this subject and agree with what I’m saying. Next time you use a product that has been animal tested on, remember the poor animal that probably got hurt just so you can use that product.
