Animal rights
Animal rights By: Anonymous Many humans use animals for testing each year. Animal testing is when the animals are put through something or injected to see how they react to what medical research they have been used for. There are three very important reasons why animals should not be used for testing harmful or dangerous materials. One of these is that testing and its use is trivial in the cosmetic industry. The second reason is that animals have rights and animals can feel pleasure an...

Animals in Testing
Animals in Testing By: Anonymous It�s not a new thing. For many centuries scientists and testers in research have used animals of all kinds. Most of the animals are small ones like rodents - rats, mice, hamsters and gerbils. Some dogs, cats and a variety of goats, monkeys and rabbits have also been used. The animal rights issue is an emotional one - second only, perhaps, to the abortion debate. For decades the value of animal research has been grossly overrated. Although researchers ...

Anorexia
Anorexia By: jill Anorexia The ads in all magazines promote one thing; skinny is the only way to be. From youth girl magazines to magazines inferred for adults, all women in ads are skinny, and this represents that you have to be skinny to be pretty, or get the man, or even to get the job. When I looked over the ads closely it really surprised me. I never consciously realized how much the ads were promoting you have to be skinny and have no hips to achieve the certain things they are p...

And Justice For All
And Justice For All By: Robert Kelly E-mail: foolishmortal@angelfire.com Throughout modern American culture certain laws passed by the majority have been considered unjust by a wise minority.

Animal Cruelty leads to Human
Animal Cruelty leads to Human Animal cruelty encompasses a range of different behaviors harmful to animals, from neglect to malicious, brutal killings.

Animal Experimentation
Animal Experimentation Annually, millions of animals suffer and die in painful tests in order to determine the safety of cosmetics. Substances like eye shadow and soap are tested on rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, dogs, and many other animals, despite the fact that the test results do not help prevent or treat human illness or injury. Cosmetics are not required to be experimented on animals, and since non-animal alternatives exist, it's difficult to understand why some companies still choose to...

Many women willingly entered the pits of battle, d...

America— Take Care of Your Own
America� Take Care of Your Own I think close knit families are important. A major contributing factor to so many juvenile crimes is broken homes. Families where either their mother, father or both has left them. God meant for children to be unconditionally loved and for them to have a feeling of security. Instead, today's children feel betrayed and to make matters worse society condones what their parents are doing or have done to them. Declaring it normal for parents to divorce regardless...

An Analysis of Political Eliti

American Drug Laws Do They He
American Drug Laws- Do They He By: K Reeves American Drug Laws: Do They Help or Hurt? I believe the drug laws are in serious need of reform. We tend to forget that alcohol is a drug and that at one time it was prohibited without success. Also, I believe that a civil body of government rather than a criminal one should regulate drug use. It is a social problem, not a criminal one. As a largely victimless crime they should not have their civil rights taken away just because they like to ta...
