It has always baffled me that Americans are able to claim to be animal rights activists while simultaneously sitting down to a nice steak dinner. It seems to me that “ignorance is bliss” should be a slogan printed on every neatly packaged corpse able to be purchased in a super market. Namit Arora, author of “On Eating Animals”, brings up an interesting point: why are we okay with eating some animals, such as chickens, pigs, and cows, but are outraged at the idea of eating “cute” animals such as cats and dogs (p. 28)?
Animal testing is one of the most debatable topics in many areas, including legislation, ethic, science and environmental study. Most of the time when people think about animal testing, they think of animal abuse, and will have the bias of animal testing is morally unacceptable.
