A Question of Animal Testing

One day you came across a farm with pigs, cows, sheep, goats, chicken, and other farm animals having a wonderful time on a nice sunny day, but moments later a farmer came across with an axe, a stick, a shotgun, and a knife out of nowhere. He sets up a line for animals to come in and moments later he began hitting, abusing, and torching those poor animals because he's unsatisfied with the animals not producing enough resources for him to make a lot of money out of. This is called animals abuse, animals abuse is when an animal is being neglect or treated cruelty, is the infliction by omission or by commission by humans or suffering or harm upon any non-human.


Luckily, there's people who disagrees with animal abuse and has come up with a situation and that is to make a bill for all animals to have rights and have freedom which is called Animals Bill of Rights. The Animal Bill of Rights is a bill that people who disagree with animal's abuse and wants to protect animals from cruelty and abuse by human's behavior, by passing this bill (Sign the Petition, 1). However, this bill has not yet pass because they're some people who disagree with animals having rights because it will affect our lives. By that decision the bill hasn't yet became a bill, and we need to do something about it. I agree that animals should have the Bill of Rights to be pass and it will provide benefits for animals and for humans too.


The Animals Bill of Right will bring animals to be free from exploitation, cruelty, and abuse to an end (Animals Bill of Rights, Article 1). In 2002, Congress moved to amend the AWA to exclude birds, rats, and mice from the Act's protections following successful litigation against the government by the Animal Legal Defense Fund that would have required the Act to be interpreted to include them. Together these 3 species excluded from the Act's protections are estimated to comprise over 90 percent of all used in research (Rats, Mice and Birds Excluded from Animal Welfare Act, 1). This is great to hear because it's unfair for animals like birds, mice, and rats to suffer from pain and other symptom because scientist is doing a lack of care towards those animals by ejected them diseases, infections, viruses, and other things to test out what will happen to them. By supporting Animal Bill of Rights, we can stop animals from being experimenting with subjects that aren't safe for animals nor humans.


The Animal Bill of Rights will give the right of farmed animals to an environment that satisfies their basic physical needs and live free without cruelty and being abuse (Animals Bill of Rights, Article 5). In polling, 94% of Americans agree that animals raised for food deserve to live free from abuse and cruelty. Yet the majority of the nearly 10 billion farm animals raised each year in the U.S. suffer in conditions that consumers would not accept if they could see them. Most of our meat, milk and eggs come from industrial farms where efficiency trumps welfare”and animals are paying the price (Farm Animal Welfare, 1).  This tells us that the entire U.S.A population agrees that farm animals need the right to live without cruelty and if people where to see how farmers treat their animals' people won't consider buying their food products. With most of the population agreeing with this, we would agree that animals should have their Bill of Rights to be established and end cruelty for farm animals to have freedom.


Animals will have the benefits of having a healthy diet, protective shelter, and adequate medical care (Animals Bill of Rights, Article 3). Currently, 45 states and the District of Columbia have felony level animal cruelty provision, usually for aggravated cruelty or animal fighting or both. The remaining 5 states treat such crimes as misdemeanors, for example in Louisiana aggravated cruelty leading to death of an animals can lead to a fine $25,000 or imprisonment for a period of 10 years (Animal Bill of Rights, Article 3. Par.1).  This shows that all 50 states have penalties for animal cruelty and majority of them can agree that Animals do deserve to have the Bill of Rights established for them. All states agree that animals have rights and if they were to be mistreated like humans and will suffer the consequence depending in what state he/ her is in. Animals deserve respect because they are unharmful animals that do nothing to hurt against humans, so why hurt them.


In conclusion, animal testing should be eliminated because it violates animals' rights, it causes pain and suffering to the all animals. Humans can't give reasons for making life better for themselves by torturing, abusing, and executing hundreds and thousands of animals per year just to perform experiments or test products. Animals should be treated with respect and worthy, and not be treated poorly there just like humans they have children to provide food for them, they have the same life experience as humans, and they feel emotional too. After all, humans are just like animals too and that why we need to support Animals Bill of Rights.
