The struggle for liberation

In order for the oppressed to be able to wage the struggle for their liberation they must perceive the reality of oppression, not as a closed world from which there is no exit, but as a limited situation which they can transform.’ (Freire, 1972: 34)

Some people support the idea of animal testing and argue that doing so would help us produce drugs that can save humans’ lives. While this statement could be true to some degree, some individuals argue that animal testing should be banned or limited comprehensively because there are other alternatives to save humans’ lives without inflicting pain on animals.
In 1000 words, your task is to present a convincing argumentative assignment that supports the argumentation that animals should not be tortured for humans’ advantages, and animal testing should be limited extensively for some reasons that you will be responsible for exploring in your assignment. That is the side you have to take. I am interested in seeing how your thesis will look and how your paragraphs are related to each other and, ultimately, the thesis.

When doing so, you should use the two peer-reviewed papers provided for you to support your argument. You should follow the APA style in-text citations only. Except for your conclusion, you must use one short, direct quotation and two paraphrases in each paragraph. If you want to use any other secondary sources, you need to cite them on your reference page.

You are required to provide a reference page for me. Try to avoid using some more secondary sources. Please keep the number of sources limited to the ones I have picked for you.

You are required to use Times New Roman, font 12. You should provide an APA cover page too.

Providing a reference page at the bottom of your argumentative paper is also obligatory.

Musculoskeletal Function

G.J. is a 71-year-old overweight woman who presents to the Family Practice Clinic for the first time complaining of a long history of bilateral knee discomfort that becomes worse when it rains and usually feels better when the weather is warm and dry. “My arthritis hasn’t improved a bit this summer though,” she states. Discomfort in the left knee is greater than in the right knee. She has also suffered from low back pain for many years, but recently it has become worse. She is having difficulty using the stairs in her home. The patient had recently visited a rheumatologist who tried a variety of NSAIDs to help her with pain control. The medications gave her mild relief but also caused significant and intolerable stomach discomfort. Her pain was alleviated with oxycodone. However, when she showed increasing tolerance and began insisting on higher doses of the medication, the physician told her that she may need surgery and that he could not prescribe more oxycodone for her. She is now seeking medical care at the Family Practice Clinic. Her knees started to get significantly more painful after she gained 20 pounds during the past nine months. Her joints are most stiff when she has been sitting or lying for some time and they tend to “loosen up” with activity. The patient has always been worried about osteoporosis because several family members have been diagnosed with the disease. However, nonclinical manifestations of osteoporosis have developed.
