In 20 years I will hopefully be a major architect out in Europe and be surrounded by my family and some of the people I consider close to me. A normal day would be me going to work as an architect. A typical day
Animal testing is unethical, should be made against the law, and considered animal exploitation.I believe that it should be illegal because the test that scientists use are unpredictable to the health of the
Using animals for research has been a topic of controversial for a long time, I would like to say, isn’t killing pigs, cows, chickens, animal cruelty as well? We live in a society that makes it ok because we have killed and eaten them for so long. Also, I’m pretty sure over 50% of all medicine that we have available to us was made with the involvement of animals in one way or another. Are you saying we should stop medication improvement to save some animals? If animals and humans are equal, then why must animals be treated differently than humans. This has been a long topic of conversation and I’m glad to see another person hopping in and asserting their own opinion. Try to think about both sides. Good job on sharing your voice!
I believe animal testing should be legal for many reasons. The main one is tests have contributed to discoveries of life-saving cures and treatments for humans. The second reason is animals are the closest living thing to a human being. Which makes them appropriate subject for testing. Also some tests can’t be performed on humans do too toxic substances or genetic manipulation. Animals benefit from testing as well, if tests weren’t performed many would have died if diseases such as rabies, distemper, feline leukemia, infectious hepatitis virus, tetanus, and anthrax. Last but not least, few animals are used for testing, we consume more animals then we research. You have some very valuable points supporting your opinion on how it should be illegal. Thank you for sharing your voice.
It’s good that you’re writing about this because it’s very important and interesting. You explain everything really well and I understand that you are aware of racism and you want to do something about it. I really like how you took your own time to research more information because it really helps to spread the word so that more people are aware of it.
I am very happy that you think like me and have some important facts post “How to make a better society,” because most people don’t really look at dose ideas or points. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “First off, there are a lot of racist people in the U.S. We’re never really safe because everyday we see caucasi…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
