Discursive Writing - Vivisection

Extracts from this document...


Discursive Writing Vivisection Most people believe that vivisection is cruel, disgusting and completely un-necessary. Vivisection is were humans experiment on living animals, which is not needed. Fewer than 2% (1.16%) of human illnesses are ever seen in animals. It is proven every 4seconds an animal dies in a British laboratory. Do you really want this to happen for no reason? There is much discussion about whether should be band, but there are never enough people against this or never enough time to sort this out. I think that all people ought to be sorting this out for the animals lives, I believe we can sort this out. Some people and the vivisectors believe vivisection is necessary, because it helps and improve medication and other produces for humans. Also it can save people from death or accidents. They argue that testing on animals can help with the cure for cancer, and other large diseases or problems in the world for humans. ...read more.


* 40% of patients suffer side effects as a result of animal testing. * Thousands of drugs passed safely in animal testing have been banned due to their side effects on humans. So is it really safe to use animals for testing? What is the point of harming and being cruel when there are other reliable ways? Furthermore there are at least 450 methods which exist which we can replace with the animal experiments. Also if you were to follow and believe in the results of animal testing you would believe that: * Humans don't need Vitamin C * Smoking does not cause cancer * Alcohol does not cause liver damage What do you think about: * 33 animals die worldwide every second * 1 animal dies every 4 seconds in the UK * * In the UK: Every 10 minutes a rabbit dies Every 6 seconds a mouse dies Every 5 hours a cat dies Every 68 minutes a dog dies Every 2 hours a monkey dies Every 4 minutes a bird dies Every 3 minutes a fish dies * Rats and mice are bred for the purpose of laboratory research. ...read more.


* Dogs are poisoned to death to test the "lethal dosage" of such products as oven cleaners. These are force feed or injected with enough products to kill 50% of the animal. * ANIMALS SUFFER WITHOUT REASON. Can I ask you does a man learn anything - except how to be inhumane by being cruel to animals. Do politicians and leaders become noble and wise by completely disregarding the interests of lower animals when lower animals can feel so much suffering and pain? I ask that your charity stops supporting these abominations of animal experimentations. A charity is a wonderful thing, offering goodness but when a charity supports such awful experiments - when a charity offers donations to help scientists cause suffering to animals - it ceases to be a charity. This is my final view of vivisection, I know that people have their own view on the subject, but can I ask you to look at what you are saying, doing and supporting. ?? ?? ?? ??

    Animal rights groups also argue that if using animals for testing cosmetics has been banned, then surely this means that the government has recognised the cruelty that testing inflicts on animals and has acted accordingly. Many people think that it is all right to test on rats, for example, because they are pests and many people shun and dislike them.

  2. Letter to an MP Concerning Vivisection

    Animal experiments are not science and should be abolished. The only replacement is real science, which means that the truly scientific experiments, which will replace animal experiments, will be totally different conceptually, and therefore they cannot even be compared to the phoney animal experiments.
