Animal Research

General Purpose: To inform

Specific Purpose: As a result of my speech, my audience will be able to explain the diversity in animal research.

Central Idea: Even after looking at all the facts involved in animal research, it is still hard to know right from wrong.


I. Have you ever wondered how the procedures for heart surgery were developed?

II. Animal research, using dogs, led to this life-saving surgery.

III. While a procedure such as heart surgery may have saved the life of someone close to you, Lisa Lange of PetA states using animals to develop these procedures is wrong.

IV. I have experienced animal body parts replacing human body parts by several members in my family.

V. The information provided by the scientific community and by the animal rights activists of PetA is so diverse, that today I would like to share some information from both sides with you.

A. Diseases that had a major effect on public health have decreased with animal research

B. Animal research doesn’t always hold true for human reactions due to the chemical make-up.

(Transition: I’ll start with the argument by the scientists.)

I. In an article, titled About Animal Research Medicine, by Tulane National Primate Research Center, stated that through animal research Polio, small pox, diphtheria, cholera, and measles are no longer major threats to public health in the United States.

A. The research performed on animals has led to more comfortable and healthier lives of pets, livestock, wildlife, and zoo animals.

B. There are some animal organs similar to human organs that provide a source for some transplants and with further research there will be many more.
