Why Animal Testing is Wrong!!!

Professor Charles R. Magel once said “Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is ‘Because animals are like us,’. Ask the experimenters why it is morally ok to test on animals, and their answer is ‘Because animals are not like us,’ Animal experimentation rests on logical contradiction.” Just a while ago I was skimming through an article on animal testing and found some horrible news. According to scientists, 219 animals die each minute from animal testing. Does that sound right to you? 219 animals just dead. It’s horrible what they’re doing to animals, cruel, and no one can deny that. Some procedures involve cutting off mice’s heads with dull scissors, others pumping deadly chemicals into dogs throats, another, which I find horrifying, is sewing monkey’s eyes closed to see what happens when they can’t see and are poisoned. Nasty, yes, necessary, no. The one question I had when I started researching animal testing was, so if we stop, how are we supposed to find antidotes to diseases and sicknesses? Well, there happened to be a whole article on it. Non-animal tests cost a fraction of what animal testing does and takes less time to complete making it a better all around alternate. In most surgeries they go in to replace something or take out something, agree? Well, study’s show that if we use the skin or old body parts that we could test, almost all chemical liquids, saving thousands of animals life’s. It’s complicated though, when you need a running organ or body part that hasn’t been detached or cut. For those instances we either use computer made models, quite challenging but, possible or human volunteers, not always popular.

             100 to 115 million vertebrae animals worldwide are killed during or soon after experiment. It’s depressing imagining animals locked in a small cage with no normal lunches and no place to run around in. That’s harsh. This harsh act is wrong and needs to be stopped.

Meet Baboon #6521 or Lisa. She was taken away from her mother at birth by hunters and was locked in a small metal cage alone. Experimenters at Columbia University have cut Lisa open in 4 different surgeries. She’s been impregnated twice; both times her babies were infused with chemicals, cut from her stomach and killed.

       We can’t just watch and stand there. Well, we can, but that’s what we’ve been doing for decades, it’s time to show those heartless killers that what they’re doing is wicked and needs to be stopped immediately.

Cloning

I just learned about cloning. Animals that are cloned usually lose half of their life because the nucleus is old when they clone. It is cruel what they do to the animals. With out pain medication they remove the spinal cord and try to clone the animal. I do belive however that cloning can be needed for help in diabetes and other health  issues but they could use less cruel ways. I am sure you have heard about Dolly the sheep. Her clone died after a few years (earlier than any other average sheep) and had athritis. It isn’t a safe way of what they are doing and before they make animals lose years on their lives why don’t they test them other ways first.

Zoo Elephants

An amazing fact is that elephants in zoo’s live a longer then ones in the wild, like 20 years (approx). Isn’t that horrible? I mean we keep these animals in small boxes and expect them to be healthy. Come on. What kind of people our we? I never understood the point of zos. I mean they just keep free animals from living life are supposed to have. We are just taking away their freedom and 20 years is alot to lose. I think zoo’s are one of many things hitting our economy finacially. They are taking peoples money adn thenkilling animals earlier. Perfect sense huh? If you have never thought about zoo’s and how they torture animals, consider it now? And think why? Why innocent animals should have valuable animals taken awayf rom their life?

The Under Water Life is in Danger

Just a few days ago The SupremeCourt refused a law helping under water animals protection. Is that what we’ve come too? Where even the most trusted law enforcers are not helping animals. The law said that the whales and other water life would be protected from the Navy’s sonars while anti-submarines practice war off the southern coast. This law saying the animals would be protected, did not pass. So, those animals are no longer watched over while this “practice” is occurring. Why, I ask you, would the Supreme court refuse this law? Because they say that the law would lower the effectivenessrate for the exercises. It’s animals lives. Is that what we want! People turning their backs to animals while shooting under water blasters which can permanentlyhurt animals. It’s horrible and needs to be stopped. This is just another reason why animal cruelty is a priority and needs to be treated like one too. Check out this link to see more of the scoop: Whales in danger! (Click on whales)

I would like to post the results for Prop. 2. It won!!! We did it! We didn’t let those animal torturers get us down. Not only did we win, we kicked butt. We won by a good amount. I guess people thought saving animals lives and not sticking them in cages was a priority. Finally, guys!!! I hope all the animal cruelty stuff goes uphill from here. Maybe, a propositon on stopping animal testing would nessessary? Maybe not? All I know is we started a soon to be revolution. Good job guys!!!

Prop 2.

This proposition is very important to this blog. Because that prop. is what you and I can are fighting for. The proposition is based on the reality of letting animals spread their wings or move their wings in their own space. The other side is that it would be expensive, but the point is: How much do these animals lives mean to you? If only a penny, vote no on prop. 2, but if you are willing to watch hundreds of animals live and feel comfortable, vote yes on prop 2. Look that one over for yourself. Animals lives are in our hands. Why waste a life? We have the power, use it wisely.

For my birthday I had all my guests donate all the money that they would have spent on a gift for me to P.E.T.A. ~ which means People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals! YAY! We ended up donating $230. Aside from that a friend and I did a small car wash, and made $40 more dollars. Which concluded a GRAND TOTAL OF $270 dollars to P.E.T.A. That shows how much some dedication can do.

The Animals!!!

Why were animals made here? To be killed? i think not. Were they made to be cut open with a knife or swim for their lives from poison water gushing into their cage? Really you think they were, i don’t. I think they  were made to show love and compassion for eachother. So why are we killing these almost defenceless creatures while they save us every day from depression, suicide, and anorexia. We don’t know they do, but just think. When you petted their soft fur, did you feel warm an cozy inside? When you put down their food and saw that innocent love stare, did you feel the compassion they have for you? If you did, you must know how much it means to not get killed and not to see that animal suffer while getting it’s throat pulled out or its skull removed, leading to, what’s the word? DEATH. So if you believe that, what some (most) people are doing wrong is horrible, donate (article below) or just go to stopanimaltests.com, and see what you can do to save this world from the cruelty that is overpowering our animals.
