Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience about
the three major ways of how scientific experiments
on animal is inhumane. I. Put yourself into an
animals position. Imagine that you are being poked
and probed by needles for the benefits of humans.
II. Animals are being abuse more and more everyday
in scientific experiments. III.
I have pets and Im
against animal testing, so knowing that animals
are used in research is appalling. IV. Some
research and scientific experiments are
impractical and immoral. Animals are being overly
abuse. V. Today, I am going to discuss to you
about the three major ways of how scientific
experiments on animal is inhumane: there is
unnecessary abuse, it is unethical, and most of
the experiments are unneeded.
I. The first major
way of how scientific experiments on animals are
inhumane is the unnecessary abuse. A. Animals are
in an unnatural environment. 1. They are
constantly being locked up, so they cant grow
normally like others in their species.
are injected with unnatural, man-made chemicals.
1. The Environmental Protection Agency plan to do
a test to evaluate the effects of industrial
chemicals on the human hormonal system by looking
at animals reproductive system. a. Between 600,000
and 1.2 million animals will be killed for every
1,000 chemical tested. b.
They estimated that
between 5,000 and 87,000 chemicals would be
tested. c. Theres a non-animal screening procedure
called HTPS that could screen out many chemicals
from the need for further testing, thereby saving
many animals lives, but the EPA still intends to
use animal testing. C. Radioactive materials are
being used on animals. 1.
materials are microwaves. a. In India, they would
put bunnies in microwaves just to observe what
would happen. 2. Animals are trained using
electrical materials. a.
Scientists train dogs
using electrical shock. II. The second major way
of how scientific experiments on animals are
inhumane is unethical. A. Animals are living
organisms and should be treated like humans. B.
They dont have a choice of whether they want to be
tested or not.
C. We wouldnt want to be injected
with chemicals and be physically abused, so why
should they? III. The third major way of how
scientific experiments on animals are inhumane is
unnecessary. A. Animals are being killed by
useless experiments that dont even benefit humans.
1. One example is at the University of Texas
Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
doing useless lug experiments on dogs. a. They
would remove 68% of those foxhounds lungs and
forced them to run on treadmills with masks placed
over their faces. b. To fit the mask, the dog
canine teeth are cut down. c.
After exercises are
completed, the dogs are killed and their lugs are
examined. B. According to R. Hamlin, D.V.M. said,
The only conclusion I can reach is that tremendous
pain and suffering are being inflicted upon
helpless dogs under the guise of research, and the
results being attained are admittedly of no
benefits to mankind. I.
In conclusion, animal
testing should not be allowed, if not then at
least limit it. Its better saving some, than none
at all. II. The abuse on animals are not
necessary, its unethical, and most of the time
useless to humans. III. Animal testing is cruel
IV. Treat animals as if they are
humans since they are living souls too. Try to put
yourself in their shoes. Bibliography:.
