Journal Writing Project: Do animals deserve rights?


By Gabrielle Sand

Posted in Canton Journal Student Writing Project

We all see the ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States sad animal commercials on the television. They show sad and abused animals to spread the word about animal cruelty. There are thirty or more groups around the United States that support animal rights and against animal cruelty. There are hundreds more worldwide. Some of the more common animal rights groups are American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), and Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

In my Advanced English class we are writing an argumentative paper, and I chose to do Animal Rights. I have done a lot a research and I also did a survey. I am a firm believer that animals should have rights because they do not have a voice of their own.

I conducted a personal survey on February 26th, 2014 with the senior class of Mabel-Canton and a few Mabel-Canton faculty. Ninety-five percent agreed that animals should have rights. I had a fact that said “The exotic pet trade is a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States. Some animals are bred in captivity, but many are taken from their native habitats. When animals are taken from their native homes, violently, it causes them a lot of stress and die early.” Seventy percent said they would not own an exotic pet. Animal fighting has also been a topic lately. Animal fighting is illegal in all fifty states, but it is still going on. It is a secretive industry. With that being said, one hundred percent agreed it should be illegal.

Animal Rights are important in today’s society because there are many people out there that abuse animals and treat them the way they shouldn’t be treated. This has been a widespread epidemic for many years. There are also millions of animals that are homeless and die from starvation, hypothermia, and many other causes in the winter months. Over one hundred and fifteen million animals including, mice rats, rats, dogs, cats, rabbits, and among others are killed in laboratory experiments every year worldwide for chemical, drug, food and cosmetic testing every year. I believe it is wrong that animals are tested on just cause many people believe animals don’t have feeling and cannot feel pain.

Animal Rights are important because animals do not have a voice of their own, so humans need to do that talking. All animals must be protected through laws, and people must follow them.

So, now the real questions is, wou .....
