At first, thank you for the people who are here to listen to my speech. I’m honor to be here so that I can express my strong argument in this place. Before beginning my speech, I want to ask you a question. It’s a short question, but not simple. Please think carefully. Is there the most superior living species? I think most of you would be quite perplexed. Yes. You should be. As I said, it is not a simple question. But also, simultaneously, there is a one, 100% perfect answer. Although it’s very easy word, many people, especially scientists who are claiming that we should do the animal testing, are not saying this easy, obvious answer. The answer is NO. The reason why I started my speech like this, is, to warn the pro-animal testing scientists, about changing their entire thoughts about animal testing. You must know that animal testing is wrong. Why animal testing is wrong? If you are curious, please follow my speech.
The most big, obvious, indisputable reason, is, that the animal testing is morally wrong. According to Humane Society International, animals used in experiments are commonly subjected to force feeding, forced inhalation, food and water deprivation, prolonged periods of physical restraint, the infliction of burns and other wounds to study the healing process, the infliction of pain to study its effects and remedies. The Draize eye test, used by cosmetics companies to evaluate irritation caused by shampoos and other products, involves rabbits being incapacitated in stocks with their eyelids held open by clips, sometimes for multiple days, so they cannot blink away the products being tested. The commonly used lethal dose 50 test involves finding out which dose of a chemical will kill 50% of the animals being used in the experiment. The US Department of Agriculture reported in 2010 that about 1million animals suffered pain during experiments while being given no anesthesia for relief, including 1,395 primates, about 6k
