Animal Testing

We need to stop animal testing it is not right.

Dear, Future president,

It is torturous to animals that have died for our selfish need of testing products on them. Animals matter too. We need to stop testing products on animals. According to Humane Society International animals used in experiments are commonly force feed, inhalation, deprived of food and water, and inflicted with burns and cuts.

Right now millions of rats, mice, cats, dogs, and many more animals are being locked up in barren cages in laboratories across America. There are many non-animal testing methods to use instead of hurting and abusing animals. India and Israel have already banned animal testing for cosmetics, that is a bigger step towards stopping animal testing than America is using.

Over 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, and abused every year.

Although some cosmetics need to be tested on animals to ensure safety to people, I am sure we can find other solutions to testing products beside using animals. The main reason we use animal to test on is because they are so much like us. But it is appropriate to risk animals lives so that we can test cosmetics and products like that. 95% of animals that are tested on are not protected by animal welfare.

Testing cosmetics on animals is a type of animal testing which used to test the safety and hypoallergenic properties of products for use by humans. Because of the harm done to the animal, this testing is opposed by animal rights activists and others.

We need to take action towards stopping animal testing. Animals matter too. Over 100 million animals die a year from animal testing which way more than it should be. The number ultimately should be zero but its not going to happen over night. We need to stop animal testing.

Sincerely, Athena .T
