Bioethics Essay Help - May 2nd 2014, 10:42 PM

Hey guys,

So I need to write a bioethics essay and my chosen topic is to do with the use of animals in pharmaceutical testing, specifically in the testing of anti-depressants.

I need arguments for and against the use of animals in testing. I have quite a lot for against at the moment but only a couple in the for argument.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

This link gives a lot of for and against arguments. Good luck with your essay


When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.

Random reasons:

Better than testing on people (you could judge the cost of harm to humans higher than the cost of harm to animals).
Easier access.
Can test things that you suspect are harmful/risky.
Can induce various disorders and diseases to test with.

Basically though - it comes down to judging the cost to animals as less than the cost to humans, for whatever reason (soul, capacity to think/feel pain etc)

Feel free to email/PM/VM/whatever me if you want. I'll answer as soon as I can.
