Write a debate in 150-200 words on “The government has banned the use of animals in the laboratory for the purpose of dissection”.

The government has banned the use of animals in the laboratory for the purpose of dissection.

The respected jury, I stand before you to debate the motion that the dissection of animals should be banned.

Classroom dissection desensitizes students to the sanctity of life. Research has shown that a significant number of students at every educational level are uncomfortable with the use of animals in dissection and experimentation. Studies also suggest that exposing young people to animal dissection as “science” can foster callousness towards animals and nature and even dissuade some from pursuing careers in science.

Students don’t need to cut up animals to understand basic anatomy and physiology. Those who plan to go into a medical field would do better to study humans in a controlled and supervised setting, examine human cadavers, or use any of the many non-animal learning methods available, such as those provided by computer models and sophisticated simulators. This type of simulation-based education would more accurately reflect what students will encounter when they get to medical school. Every year, millions of animals are dissected in elementary, secondary, and college science classes. Each animal that is cut open and discarded represents not only a life lost but also a part of a trail of animal abuse and environmental havoc. Dissections teach children to abuse animals. You’re taking a harmless animal’s life away. What if that happened to you? Taking your life away so that someone can dissect it?

With this, I rest my case.

Thank you
