Attenzione! C’è un’opzione di troppo!
For years there has been an ongoing debate 1 the use of animals in research and testing. 2 many people believe testing on animals is not only unethical 3 cruel and inhumane, others are convinced that animal testing is a necessary evil; 4 , an unavoidable practice. I personally believe that animal testing is unethical and should be banned or 5 restricted, but at the same time I am aware that without this practice the lives of many people would be much worse than they are at present.
I am certainly aware that there are many arguments in favour of experimenting with animals; 6 , 90% of scientists support the idea, and there must be reasons for that. Many life-saving cures and treatments wouldn’t have been possible without it. 7 , there is legislation in place to ensure the wellbeing of the animals which are used in tests, and most of these animals are 8 treated more humanely than the animals we use for consumption, which represent the vast majority.
9 , we should ask ourselves if we have the right to dictate the destiny of any living creature. It has been proved that animals have feelings and are as susceptible of pain and suffering as humans. Therefore, it seems cruel to purposely make them experience such afflictions. The main difference between animals and humans is that the former don’t seem to have a conscience or the ability to feel compassion. As far as I am concerned, it is precisely compassion, the characteristic that makes humans unique and “superior”, what we should use when dealing with animals; 10 we are nothing else than animals doing tests on other animals.
