英検1級の2次試験のスピーチ対策です。
2個目は「動物実験は正当化されるか?」

I’m going to talk about the topic: “Can animal testing be justified?”

Before I start the speech I want to mention that I don’t like the word “be justified”, because I feel the word separates people justice and evil not only pros and cons. So I’ll only say whethere I agree or disagree with animal testing.

And I agree with it. There are many reasons supporting this claim.

Firstly, without animal testing we cannot make medical progress, or we must test new medicines on human. Needless to say, human lives are more important than animals, only a few extremists would disagree.

Secondly, although some people might hold the opinion that we have already progressed enough in medicine I do not think so.

For example, 2000 years ago people’s life expectancy was only 30. Perhaps in 100 years time people’s life expectancy could be 150 years in developed countries and in other countries it would remain unchanged. Even after hearing that information, could they still hold the same opinion?

ここは「もし仮に100年後、平均寿命が150年になった世界においても現在と同じく80年しか生きられなくても現在と同じようにその寿命を当然のものとして受け入れることができるだろうか?」と書きたかったけど、どういえばわからなかったので意味不明な事になってます。

Of course I’m aware that there are still many animals who suffer unnecessary pain. We must minimize the pain that animal are made to suffer and make regulations for the use of animals. I understand the guilty feeling of torturing animals for human profit. But if I must choose a human life over 100 animal lives, I would choose the human life. For these reasons, I agree with animal testing.

Thank you for listening to my speech.

Thank you for corrections in lang8.
