The government has banned the use of animals in the laboratories for the purpose of dissection. Write a debate in 150 – 200 words either for or against this decision.
Respected Principal, Members of the Jury and my worthy opponents. Good morning to you all.
Today I, Neetu stand before you to speak for the motion ‘Ban Animal Dissection’.
The dissection of animals inside science labs encourages cruelty towards animals. Animal dissection is an unethical practice because many of these animals are captured from their natural surroundings and treated unjustly.
Animals are sold to schools from pet stores and, at times, as by-products from meat industries. They are shipped in small and crowded containers, which are not properly ventilated.
Like humans, animals too have the right to live a respectful life. However, animal dissection is just one way of snatching away that right. It also inculcates in students the wrong idea that animals lives don’t matter, that they are disposable. The question worth asking is, is animal dissection really that necessary, unless a student chooses to pursue career in that field? If at all, he or she does, the student would get the opportunity to practise dissection on human cadavers at the University.
I would like to conclude by saying, it is the age of technology and education is becoming virtual. So why not opt for virtual dissection instead of actual dissection? It is not only educative and interactive, it is also economical and saves the of precious lives of many animals.
