Did you know that over 100 million animals die a year from testing, and in the cruelest way? Many people are not sure if there should be rules for scientists or not.
There should be rules for scientists because some experiments hurt animals for no reason, and rules that are in place today are helping to save many animal lives.
Quora.com says that “Rules are made to facilitate the smooth working of society”. This shows that rules for scientists to follow are necessary to guarantee the safety and smooth-running of animal testing.
There are many organizations such as the Animal Welfare Act and The Office Of Animal Welfare that enforce these rules. These rules set limitations for what is legal to do to animals in a laboratory.
The rules that we have today are helping and saving animals.
We should have rules for animal testing because some experiments could hurt animals for no reason. For example Peta.org said “Monkeys in labs are subjected to painful, invasive, and irrelevant experiments.”
Also animals in labs are infected with diseases and starved, restrained and pumped with chemicals. We need rules to stop this.
Animals are allowed to be murdered or intoxicated in labs. If there weren't laws pertaining to this, this could lead to extreme problems throughout human and animal kind.
Peta.org states that “U.S. law allows animals to be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, drowned, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged.”
Could you imagine this happening to humans? It’s like being tortured for a crime you didn’t commit. This is why we need animal laws.
One example is a rule that best protects animals is requiring investigators to consider alternative methods that do not involve animals. Another example is animals in labs are infected with diseases, starved, restrained, and pumped with chemicals.
In conclusion scientists should have rules because, The rules that we have today are helping and saving animals, and some experiments hurt animals for no reason.
If we have rules for scientist we can ensure animals safety when testing. THANKS FOR LISTENING!
