2018-06-30: Task 2 (India)
Some people think it is necessary to use animals for testing medicine which are intended for human, while others say animals should not be treated this way of use animals for testing a medicine.
Discuss both your views and give your opinion.
Since the existence of humanity, animals have been good companions to us. Some people hold the view that animal testing is an inevitable procedure for the sake of humans. In my part, animal experimentation should be banned as they have the same rights as human beings.
The advocators claim that scientists should make a good use of animals, such as test medicines in order to help human beings to combat more deadly diseases. The supporters of this view believe that animals bear a resemblance to humans, such as cell structure, as a result, animal experimentation is still regarded as a reliable and feasible method. It is undeniable that in some case is cruel. For instance, mice are sometimes injected with cancer cell for the medical researches. But it would be more brutal to use humans themselves as the testing objects, because humans cannot take any risk to lose their lives. Some one might argue that animal test will break the biological balance. However, some animals like rabbits or rats can be bred quickly in laboratories. In other words, it has a large number of supplies in the laboratories. Therefore, the animals testing will not break the biological ecosystem.
An alternative opinion is that animals have the equal rights as human beings. Treating them so brutally will leave a negative impression on our next generation. Over thousands of years, animals have been always considered as the best friends to us. It can often been seen on the news that the old who live alone and abandoned by their children, accompanied by their loyal dogs. This is something positive we need convey to our young generation rather than maltreating animals. The harvesting of bear bile for traditional medicine is an unbelievable evidence of maltreatment, which would exert a bad influence on children. If it is inevitable to use animals to do some tests, as there is no other alternative way to replace them in some circumstances, humans should take the responsibility to reduce the pain for those animals. We need treat animals as humane as possible.
In conclusion, animals, human beings’ friends, should be treated as equal right as humans. Once we have no choice to sacrifice their interests, humanity should be considered as the least option for medical testing.
Whether nor not it is absolutely crucial for people using animals to test some medicines has been a hotly debated issue. There are those who argue that testing some medicines on animals is essential. Some others do not completely agree with this viewpoint. In this essay, these views will be discussed and my view will be also presented.
With regard to people who believe that it is necessary to use animals for testing some medicines. With the social-economic development, there are a variety of strange diseases to be being done research and scientists have to perform their obligations to test some new medicine on animals before doctor take prescriptions for patients. It is likely to be a right solution because life and well-being of human must be respected and safe. Therefore, scientists should be allowed to continue using this measure in the long term.
As for those who do not completely agree to use animals to test new medicines. Animals need protecting and behaving like human beings. Moreover, animals also have the right to live as well as to have other basic rights and testing on animals is a serious violation of humanity. In other words, this has been considered as a cruel action against animals.
As far as I am concerned, using animals to meet requirements of doing experiment is acceptable. In some cases, if patients take new medicines without testing before that, some unexpected consequences may occur to patients. What is more, via these tests, scientists find out more breakthroughs to limit counter-productiveness of the medicines because these drawbacks can cause people’s health more seriously, event leading to the deaths.
It seems to me that it is important to maintain and develop to use animals for testing some medicines because it is rewarding for patients. Obviously, negatives of this method are outweighed by much larger positives.
