The Animal-Rights Movement has been a concern of many Americans in present day society, especially those in the medical profession. Many scientists agree that the Animal-Rights Movement severely limits the capability of scientists to test new medical procedures and drugs on animals, which will stall the advancement of medical technology. Both the Wall Street Journal and Ron Kline have produced written documents speaking out about the consequences of the Animal-Rights Movement. The Wall Street Journal Article and Ron Kline's Article state that the uses of animals for science have resulted in scientific breakthroughs, however, they differ greatly on what should be done with the existence and

After a few weeks and no one wanted her, my mother finally let me keep her. Animal cruelty is against the law; therefore people must treat animals with kindness and respect.According to the website entitled "All Creatures Animal Rights: Our Philosophy", All of God's creatures have rights. This is a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. Human beings and animals are both God's creatures, so they both must have rights.

While animals are not by any means as smart as the human race, they are proven to have intelligence. Many animals can be trained and exhibit behavior that shows they feel emotion, pain, loneliness, fear, and stress. It should be obvious that keeping animals in lonely cages all day and forcing them to undergo painful testing would cause them stress. Animals should be allowed to run free and experience the normal animal activity that they were born to experience. They may not be able to speak and express themselves in words, but they do have intelligence and thus their rights must be

Animal Testing In Medical Research Should Be Illegal
Animals are being killed every day due to research in cosmetics, medicine, and other human products. Drugs we get from animal testing are extremely dangerous to both animals and humans. Creatures used in medical labs get treated poorly. What happens to animals after they are done with their research? There are other options, which are more successful in testing medicines, than killing animals to research medicine. God didn’t create all these animals just so we could kill them and destroy their homes.

To some humans, animals are just there for experimentation. Scientists test various new products and lethal drugs on animals. A new animal rights law has made scientists reduce the number of and release some of the animals that were found by the Animal Rights Department. The law requires no fatal drugs or new products are to be tested on animals. There are many experimenters across the world that the Animal Rights Department are trying to stop.Those people who experiment on animals will let animals die and suffer in pain. In New Mexico, scientists had more than one hundred of beagles to inhale radioactive strontium. The experimental dogs eventually died with blood loss, fever, and skin

Even though animal testing is unethical, the animals being tested on have no rights, therefore it is acceptable to perform experiments on them. Animals do not have the cognitive ability or moral judgment that humans do because of this they have been treated differently than humans by nearly every culture throughout recorded history. If animals have no rights because they are different to us, why are we classified as an animal and a species? Some individuals feel that animals have no rights because they lack the capacity to understand or to knowingly exercise these rights. Although, animal testing cannot be justified on the basis that animals are lower on the evolutionary chart than

Not only are they made to live in cages smaller than they can live in but are sometimes not even treated well by their keepers. There are many zoos all over the world were the conditions are so unhygienic that they are illegal according to animal rights. Often a times animals are left to starve and the sick left to die.It comes in scientific reports that animals that are kept in zoos over a length of time are not able to adapt to their own habitats when set free as their living conditions are not at all like their natural conditions.

Whether animals have feelings and emotions has been a conversation the human race has been having for decades. Do pigs really care if they are stuffed into compact cages, unable to move around freely, until they are inevitably sent to a slaughter house in order to feed our covetous mouths? Are alluring, exotic animals such as the orcas at Seaworld bothered about the fact that they have never swam in an actual ocean? That they were purely bred to entertain the masses? These instances are just a small percentage of the cruelty that happens every day, to other living beings. Are they capable of feeling pain? It’s

Compare and Contrast
In the 1950s, there was a ‘zoo boom’ during which time entrepreneurs recognized the potential money to be made from exhibiting wild animals to satisfy public curiosity.  German collector, Carl Hagenbeck, built the first wild animal park in 1848. He allowed the animals outdoor access, believing their enclosure should more closely resemble nature. Today, there is a push by animal rights activists to that same effect. Until the 20 th century, there was little or no concern for the welfare of zoo animals. It was not until the late 1970s and early 1980s that the appearance of zoos began to change to

“Hiding from Animals” by Helen Macdonald and “Tracking Ivory” by Bryan Christy are talking about two different things. “Hiding from Animals”, talked about observing animal behavior without humans being involved, to see if the animal’s behavior will change. But on the other side, “Tracking Ivory” talked about how human activities are affecting the population of animals, and trading ivory and hunting are killing elephants. Macdonald and Christy agree in their care and love for animals. I believe that the earth is not only for humans, we live with other creatures and they share the earth with us and they have the rights to use the earth resources as we do. The difference is that we have the ability and power to change things on earth.

animal shelter businesses are beginning to lose money and are not raising enough to take care of the pets. A good approach on this would be having a fundraiser to raise funds for a animal shelter. Starting a fundraiser would allow the business to raise more money to supply the animals with food, shelter, and even toys. There was a time in my life where i felt bad for those who couldn't afford food and were stuck in poverty brought to them by nothingness but just fate. This is why when there was a food drive at my school i decided to bring canned goods for donation. Later on, i would go on to get involved in a fundraiser to support cancer patients.

The term "Democrat Party" has also been in constant use, but has usually been used by opponents since 1952 as a derogatory term. The most common mascot symbol for the party has been the donkey. Andrew Jackson's enemies would twist his name to "jackass" as a term of disrespect regarding a “stupid” animal.

Animal rights groups pushed the bill passed resulting in loss of federal funds for inspection. By bearing the expense of inspection three facilities remained open until Texas and Illinois passed state legislation banning slaughter for human consumption forcing them to close their doors (131). Animal rights groups have made numerous attempts to permanently ban horse slaughter as well as the export intended for human consumption, but continuously unsuccessful. (132-133).

associated with greater awareness about human and animal rights. This has led to the reduced acceptance of stigmatized practices that are construed as breaching those rights. For example, acceptance of animal rights as a key virtue of liberalism has led to the increased abhorrence of inhuman treatment of livestock. Essentially, human beings are expected to show love to animals in the same manner as they do to fellow human beings. This means watering and feeding animals, cleaning the places where they stay and ensuring that they are not mistreated in the pretext of medical testing.

Composers challenge the values of their individual contexts through transgressive characters, forms and literary devices, thus creating space and agency for silent voices. This idea is depicted in the play A Doll’s House written by Henrik Ibsen and the novel The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. Atwood and Ibsen uphold the values within their respective 1970s - 80s context and 19th – 20th century context. Atwood’s context of radical feminism and human rights significantly influences the oppressive setting of her dystopian text.

Ironically the morning Van Gogh was killed he was on his way to work on 06/05 a “Hitchcockian thriller about the assassination of Pim Fortuyn,” (37). Van Gogh wanted to focus in his film about Fortuyn the outburst that followed his death. Fortuyn’s rival for Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, struggled to find words to describe the situation.
