IS THERE A CASE FOR COMPLETELY BANNING ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION

Q: IS THERE A CASE FORARE THERE SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO BAN ANIMAL


TESTING
T: ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATIONTESTING OF DRUGS, MEDICAL FOOD AND COSMETIC
TESTS IN ORDER TO TEST THE SAFETY OF PRODUCTS
K:COMPLETE BAN OF ANIMAL TESTINGEXTREME SUGGESTION

INTRO: Imagine a scientist in the lab who has been tasked with determining if this
newly discovered drug will be able to cure a disease. However, all he has are petri
dishes filled with cells and the virus. However, testing of cells do not provide as
much results as testing on a fully grown animal. Animal experimentation has played
a crucial role in modern medical treatments and they will continue to be necessary
for researchers in response to the emergence of new diseases. Though animal
experimentation is but one of the several complementary approaches, it has been
found that some answers can only be answered through animal research. Thus, it
would be unwise and unwarranted to completely ban animal testing, as doing so
would be detrimental to human health. At the same time, however, animal
experimentation must not take place in unregulated environment or
indiscriminately.

NEW TECHNOLOGY IS THE ONLY HOPE OF SAVING THE PLANET WE HAVE LEFT. DO
YOU AGREE
Q: DO YOU AGREE TO WHAT EXTENT IS THIS A VALID STATEMENT.
T: NEW TECHNOLOGY, SAVING THE PLANET (INFO TECH, BIOTECH, ARTIFICIAL
INTELLIGENCE, GENETIC ENGINEERING, SCIENCE) DO NOT FOCUS ON ENVIRO TECH
K: ONLY HOPE (ABSOLUTE STATEMENT, EXTREME STATEMENT) have to have other
methods and solutions.
To say that new technology is the panacea for all that ails our planet is too absolute
a statement as the earth faces many different threats and thus requires different
approaches working in tandem in order to tackle these problems.
Thermo-depolymerization: making oil from just about anything.
Hydrogen fuel cellOcean themed energy conversion
Bioremidiation
1. Unproven new technology has yet to prove itself in addressing these threats.
2. New tech could be dangerous (biological weapns of mass destruction,
artificial intel, genetic engineering
3. New tech may exacerbate problems

4. Multi-pronged approach yield better results, cannot rely soly on tech

WE LIVE IN AN AGE WHERE NO ONE KNOWS WHERE TO DRAW THE LINE ANYMORE
HOW FAR IS THIS TRUE WITH REBGARD TO MEDICAL SCIENCE TODAY
Q: HOW FAR IS THIS TRUE (TO WHAT EXTENT IS THIS ACCURATE OF THE CURRENT
WORLD)
T: MEDICAL SCIENCE, T2:DRAW THE LINE MORALITY T3: IN AN AGE TODAY
K: NO ONE
As medical science develops and becomes increasingly advanced over the course of
human history, the task of demarcating the ethical boundaries within which we
might apply medicinal knowledge has indeed become progressively harder.
However, its will be wrong to accuse scientists of breaching morality because
