Today, there are so many problems related to animal rights. People use animals for testing. Then, do you know that 70,000 dogs are used in laboratory experiments in the United States each year? It is the statistics from Beagle Freedom Project. Furthermore, more than 115 million animals are used in laboratory experiments around the world each year for human’s cosmetics and vaccine experiments according to British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection. However, there are not consideration into animal’s rights, and it is not efficient.
Before going to my blog’s points, see this blog. https://www.peta.org/blog/top-five-reasons-stop-animal-testing/
The writer points out 5 reasons to stop animal testing. He says that it is unethical, bad science, wasteful, archaic, and unneccessary. I totally agree with this agreement. I think the animal testing is bad for our society. There are 3 reasons why I think like that.
First, animal testing is the thing that eliminates the animal’s right. According to Humane Society International, briefly 100,000 to 200,000 animals are in a lot of pain for cosmetics annually. For example, in U.S., more than 100 million animals are died because of various animal testing according to PETA. These animals, such as mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs, suffer through evaluations for skin irritation, eye irritation and any kind of toxicity. Are these things right? Then, look at the efficiency of these things.
The second point is that animal testing is ineffective experiment. According to Speaking of research, 92% of drugs that are tested successfully in animals failed during human trials. It means that only 8% of successful drugs through animal testing can be used for the human being. It is very ineffective thing, but United States spends about $16 billion dollars every year for animal testing with tax payer’s money. Is it all that animal testing is ineffective? No! The animal testing is basically wrong because human being differs from animals. It is the most important reason why we should stop animal testing.
Final thing is that it is illegal experiment. For example, in U.S., three states are already passed the laws that prohibit animal testing, and in Canada, the government amended the Food and Drugs Act to prohibit cosmetic animal testing. Furthermore, the EU also formerly prohibited testing of animal products in 2004, and animal-tested ingredients were forbidden in 2008.

Then, see this video.
It explains you several things that you should know about animal testing, and arouses people’s attention. Especially, 1:25~1:33, there is a monkey in great agony. It is terrible scene.
This video will help you understand that there are still many animal testing in the world. It is a promotinonal video for the organization that is fighting for animals’ rights.
Then, why are there so many animal testings in the world? It is mainly because of their belif that animal testing can save humans. Actually, many diseases, such as breast cancer, diabetes, flu, and Alzheimer’s disease, made developments through the animal testing.
In conclusion, the animal testing is important issue in modern society. Many social organizations suggest that animal testing is immoral thing. It makes animal in pain and it uses our tax inefficiently, and it is not efficient because of its success rate. Therefore, it is one of the most important issues that should be removed in nowadays. Then, it will save the animals which are suffered from illegal animal experiments.
