Animal testing is deeply divided subject, with a great deal of passion, emotion, and ideas on both sides regarding the ethic of the practice. Some individuals support animal testing and some others oppose its use.

The scientific community is strongly in favour in animal testing. The medical breakthroughs that have occured as a result of animal testing are considered reason enough to continue the practice, with the aim of reducing human suffering and saving human lives. Animal testing aids researchers in finding drugs and treatments to improve health and medicine. Many medical treatments have been made possible by animal testing, including cancer and HIV drugs, insulin, antibiotics, vaccines, and many more. Animal testing also helps to ensure the safety of drugs and many other substances humans use or are exposed to regularly. Scientists typically use animals for testing purpose because they are considered similar to humans.

The contra on the issue of animal testing is that countless animals are experimented on and then killed after their use. Others are injured and will still live the rest of their lives in captivity. Many of these animals received tests for substances that will never actually be used for public consumption and use. Animal testing generally costs an enermous amount of money as the animals must be fed, housed, cared for and treated with drugs or experimental substances. The price of the animal themselves must also be factored into equation.

As a result of the controversy, regulations and laws should be enforced. At the very least, animal suffering should be minimized and that animals should be respected during their care. If animal testing is to continue, animals must be abused.


Which of the following is the reason why scientists use animals for testing?

  1. Animals are the same as humans.

  2. Animals and humans are regarded be alike.

  3. Animals can reduce human suffering.

  4. Medical treatments can be given to animals

  5. Cancer and HIV can be found in animals.


Berdasarkan kalimat “Scientists typically use animals for testing purpose because they are considered similar to humans” yang terdapat pada kalimat terakhir di paragraf ke-2, dapat diketahui bahwa para peneliti senang menggunakan hewan sebagai bahan percobaan karena hewan memiliki kesamaan dengan manusia sehingga dapat menggantikan manusia sehingga pilihan jawaban Animals and humans are regarded be alike. adalah yang paling tepat.
