Peter Singer, a professor of philosophy at Australia’s Monash University once said, “If possessing a higher degree of intelligence does not entitle one human to use another for his own ends, how can it entitle humans to exploit non-humans for the same purpose?” Singer, an animal rights supporter, coined the term speciesism – a biased attitude towards the interest off one’s own species and against those of other species.” Although animal rights are hard to clearly define and have been a controversial issue for several decades, there is a general feeling among the public that there needs to be some kind of control and regulation. While some forms of testing on animals may be needed, widespread violence against animals and many current factory-farming practices are unethical and inhumane. An issue we may come across is animal testing. You many even ask why is it done? Some answer that it’s better for things to be tested on animals, than human beings, and many would agree. The problem is that many of us are unaware of what goes on in animal testing; how they are tortured, and how uncivilized people are when working with another species. A non-profit organization dosomething.org shows us that “ 50% of all animals used in cosmetic testing die within three weeks of the experiment’. Just by scientist trying out new beauty products, we would suppose that they would know what chemicals are being used to sell to the general population. We need to understand that there should be laws to protect these animals. Researchers have found out that “animal testing is often ineffective in predicting how products will work on people. Some estimates say up to 92% of tests passed on animals failed when tried on human” if these test are of no help to humans, there is no need for these animals to have to die. The main issue is that laws need to be placed to protect these animals. The fact that scientist have found many alternatives for such testing, should force them to use them. An example of this is that major medical schools are using them, according to PETA “ninety percent of medical schools across the U.S have completely replaced the use of animal laboratories in medical training with sophisticated human-patient simulators, virtual reality systems, computer simulators, and supervised clinical experience” if there is other alternatives then killing animals we should use them. Another reason why their should be animals right, is because animals are often tortured, and abuse in farms, and factories. It is true that we have to have eat, and it is a resource to gain are necessary diets, but there is no need to torture, or abuse them. To understand the conditions of these animals, we must first look at what these animals eat. According to expert Mike Adams, many of these animals are eating drugs, and chemicals “they are frequently implemented in order…

You should be able to complete any assignments, exams, and any other given assignments with complete honesty. College professors and college faculty want…
