Dear Mr. President,
My name is Ellie. I am a student at Parkway West Middle, and I am writing to you today to share my thoughts on animal experimentation. I found out about this twist on cruelty a long time ago; I don't know when I first learned about it, but it has stuck with me. Animal testing is when companies test their products on animals, by injecting them with chemicals, prodding them with needles, and more, before they send the products to the stores to be used by the public. I believe animal testing must be stopped for the better of animals all over the world.
To begin, animal experimentation should be discontinued because it is ruthless and vicious. Animals that go into testing can die from sickness, chemical over load, and overall faulty products. The animals die daily. This process may save a few humans from a little sickness, but it ends the lives of hundreds of thousands of animals. These poor, defenseless creatures are slaughtered by murderers in lab coats and latex gloves.
Furthermore, animal testing must cease because its purpose is left unfulfilled. In 2008, 3.7 million harmful experiments were performed on animals. However, 100,000 people per year still die from products that passed the process of animal testing because the products were safe for the animals, not humans. After all, humans and animals are not the same. If the purpose is to save humans, animal testing is clearly not the answer. Not only do animals die, but humans do too.
Many people think that animal testing is the only solution because it is wrong to test on animals. An alternative would be, not testing on humans, but on their DNA. For example, if the product is for your face, test it on skin cells. This saves lives of animals and humans, because it is designed toward them, not the animals.
In summary, Mr. President, this is abuse in disguise, but you can assist us in ending this heartbreaking catastrophe. Help your country diminish animal experimentation once and for all. Together with your help, we can ban this barbarism in America to save the sweet, adorable animals all over the world.
Thank you, Mr. President, for all you do for our country, and thank you for your time.
