Why we are not to eat animal with its blood (while it is still alive)?

Because this is what animals do. And we are not animals.

Let's take a look at the text:
CLV Gn 9:4 "Yea, only flesh with its soul, its blood, you shall not eat. 
CLV Lv 17:13 Any man from the sons of Israel and from the sojourners sojourning in your midst who hunt a game animal or a flyer which may be eaten will pour out its blood and cover it with soil, 
CLV Dt 12:16 But the blood you shall not eat. On the earth shall you pour it out like water. 
CLV Dt 15:23 But its blood you shall not eat. On the earth shall you pour it out like water.
As you can see, we are commanded to drain the blood from the animal that we slaughter and we are also commanded to cover it with soil.

We are not animals so we are not allowed to eat the animal while it is still alive and we are not allowed to eat the blood of the animal we are slaughtering.
