Animals and humans both fall under on the mammal category and are located in the same kingdom. In the book, “Unlikely Heroes” by Jennifer S. Holland, people around the world share their stories of how an animal saved their life. There are many different short stories, but the rest are also stories of animals rescuing other animals. Whether it’s a dog saving a cat, fox, or llama, they are still amazing heroes that are not focused on what kind, color, or breed they are. Experimenting on a species is similar to when an animal saves a human or another animal’s life, but instead of coming in contact with the species. It saves lives through giving its body as a sacrifice for medical testing. Holland shares the story, “A Rabbit’s Sixth Sense,” with …show more content…
Animals are like the super heroes of the world, one may sacrifice their life in order to save a humans. Reducing the amount of animals in the lab and the amount of the medicine into their system will help reduce the amount of lives lost. As Americans, the people have a job to watch out for those in harm’s way. Though one may see it as harming the animal, they are saving a human. Not only are scientists helping cure humans, but they are assisting animals in need. By experimenting on a species, it gives veterinarians the chance to find out what is wrong with the animals brought to their clinic, Dr. Hooker suggests, “Experimenting on animals is just a part of life. Of course some vaccines will not work. The world is not perfect and neither are the people living in it.” Some living organism has to be the first one to try a product for the first time. Biochemists will continue to experiment to find new medicines in order to come up with a solution to cure animals and humans with …show more content…

Humans would no longer be in control. Believe it or not animals save many humans’ lives, but Americans save even more animals’ lives. Experimenting is the only way to better our society as a whole. Without the assistance of animals the American culture would be less developed and hopeless. Scientists would be left to test on humans until they finally made a reliable machine to test on. Even some of the machines’ researchers use today would not be trustworthy to use for testing, but thanks to the discovery of the animal cancer treatment, now humans that had cancer can live cancer free due to the testing done on animals. The article “Animal Research is Helping us Beat Cancer” by David Scott states, “But this progress simply wouldn’t have been possible without animal research.” It is vital to the United States that they allow the use of animal experimentations in order to save the lives of those with incurable
