Animal Rights

Thesis Statements:

Animal testing is necessary to develop new medicines
and advance scientific knowledge.


Animal testing is unethical and should be outlawed.

Some of the issues in this argument:
What rights do animals possess?
What rights do humans have to use animals as they wish?
Can new medicines and vaccines be safely developed without animal testing?
Is it human nature to eat meat?
Do humans exploit animals when they keep them as pets and/or in zoos?
