I defend the view that all sentient non-human animals(cows, chickens, pigs, buffaloes, koala bears, dolphins, etc) have intrinsic moral value and direct moral rights. Put in other words, I believe that human beings have weighty moral obligations to non-human animals. I defend this view in the following posts:
|The Core Argument for Animal Rights|
|The Analogical Argument for Animal Rights|
|Why Even a Painless Death is Harmful to Animals|
My view of animal rights entails that raising and killing non-human animals for food is wrong. Animal agriculture should be replaced with plant agriculture.
