A growing number of people feel that animals should not be exploited by people and that they should have the same rights as humans, while others argue that humans must employ animals to satisfy their various needs, including uses for food and research. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Some people believe that animals should be treated in the same way humans are and have similar rights, whereas others think that it is more important to use them as we desire for
food
and medical research.
This
essay will discuss both points of view. With regard to the exploitation of animals, people believe it is acceptable for several reasons.
Firstly
, they think that humans are the most important beings on the planet, and everything must be done to ensure human survival. If
this
means experimenting on animals so that we can fight and find cures for diseases,
then
this
takes priority over animal suffering.
Furthermore
, it is believed by
some that animals
Suggestion
some animals that
do not feel pain or loss as humans do, so if we have to kill animals for
food
or other uses,
then
this
is morally acceptable.
However
, I do not believe these arguments stand up to scrutiny.
To begin
, it has been shown on numerous occasions by secret filming in laboratories via animal rights groups that animals feel as much pain as humans do, and they suffer when they are kept in cages for long periods.
In addition
, a substantial amount of animal research is done for cosmetics, not to find cures for diseases, so
this
is unnecessary.
Finally
, it has
also
been proven that humans can get all the nutrients and vitamins that they need from green vegetables and fruit.
Therefore
, again, having to kill animals for
food
is not an adequate argument. To sum up,
although
some people argue killing animals for research and
food
is ethical, I would argue there is sufficient evidence to demonstrate that
this
is not the case, and,
therefore
, steps must be taken to improve the rights of animals.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
