Hi, I need help with essay on Medicine Research, Ethics and Law. Paper must be at least 1500 words. Please, no plagiarized work!
From the discussion it is clear that .claiming that humans are superior to animals in an evolutionary basis or for the simple reason that they lack the power of reasoning and language can be correlated to discriminations found presently in human civilization based on color, race and gender. Before the evolution of ethics in human clinical research there were many incidents like the Nazi experiments and Tuskegee syphilis study in which many humans were used as experimental beings without consent, on the reason that these people were of lower race or helpless to raise their voice against such inhuman crimes. The animals used in research are in the same position like humans in these old inhuman experiments. It is true you cannot obtain consent from an animal but the fact that the way an animal feels pain is same as a human feels it and this is not something even the researchers are ignorant about .This research highlights that .the nervous system that reacts to any kind of external stimuli or pain is equally developed in both animals and humans. Darwin points out in his studies that animals too have emotions like humans do. they do feel sad, desolate, apprehensive, bored, and disgruntled. Modern research supports the theories of Darwin. People who have pets must have felt the same on seeing how these home grown animals react and respond to human behavior. As far as research and development in diseases and medicine are concerned, animal experimentation is a necessary part that cannot be excluded.
