  • Road Kill, Abandoned Eggs, and Dumpster Diving - Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach
    reinforcing demand But you observe you know about it You are participating in the act of consuming animals a ritual that has no meaning apart from the speciesist celebration that animals are things to exploit Being vegan means that you reject the notion that animals are things for us to consume They are not commodities they are not resources They are not food any more than a human arm that you find in the dumpster We would never think of eating a human Humans are moral persons We don t eat persons But nonhumans are persons as well They have moral value Their bodies and the products made from them are not things we should consider as food even if we find them dead along the road way or in a dumpster or even if they are abandoned by their makers such as unfertilized eggs that hens don t eat If you are not vegan please go vegan Veganism is about nonviolence First and foremost it s about nonviolence to other sentient beings But it s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself The World is Vegan If you want it Gary L Francione Professor Rutgers University 2012 Gary L Francione Related posts No They Don t Dig Cage Free Eggs McDonald s Cage Free Eggs Peter McSinger and the McAnimal Movement Mary Bale Michael Vick and Moral Schizophrenia Our Choice Some Clear Thinking About Animal Welfare Share this entry Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr Share on Vk Share on Reddit Share by Mail Français Visitez notre site miroir français Recent Posts Guest Essay This is Why New Welfarists Should Stop Equivocating on Moral Principles Concerning Animals A Response to Mercy For Animals Incremental

  • Commentary #23: Lennox and Moral Reasoning in Animal Rights - Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach
    it was a good time to do the Commentary because the reaction to Lennox s situation required that we think generalizing our moral concern to other animals In my view if you are upset about the killing of Lennox but you are not vegan you are not thinking clearly Lennox s case raises some of the same issues as did the matter of Michael Vick In the first part of the Commentary I discuss Lennox I go on to talk about moral reasoning animal rights advocacy I also discuss the concept of sentience in the second part I hope that you enjoy Commentary 24 and that you find that it helps your thinking about animal ethics And many thanks to Paola Aldana de Meoño for designing the new Commentary avatar If you are not vegan please go vegan Veganism is about nonviolence First and foremost it s about nonviolence to other sentient beings But it s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself The World is Vegan If you want it Gary L Francione Professor Rutgers University 2012 Gary L Francione Podcast Play in new window Download Duration 52 27 24 0MB Subscribe iTunes Android RSS Related posts The Legacy of Lennox Commentary 21 The Animal Rights Debate the Abolitionist Approach Discussion Forum and a Response to Nicolette Hahn Niman Commentary 4 Follow Up to Pets Commentary Non Vegan Cats Commentary Vegan Education Advocacy Forcing Others to Go Vegan and Animal Ethics as Involving Obligation and Not Choice Commentary 9 Using Sexism to Promote Animal Rights Share this entry Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr Share on Vk Share on Reddit Share by Mail Français Visitez notre site miroir français Recent Posts Guest Essay This

  • Sentience - Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach
    about what happens to the plant People often say that I regard insects as not sentient That is not accurate I do not know whether insects are sentient I err on the side of sentience and I do not intentionally kill them Indeed I exercise caution when I walk so as not to kill or injure them I do not know whether clams or other mollusks are sentient although I err in favor of sentience and do not eat them or buy products made from them But I repeat not knowing where to draw the line does not mean that we don t know enough right now to be absolutely clear that we have a moral obligation not to eat wear or use animals and that veganism must be the moral baseline of a movement that seeks justice for nonhuman animals If you are not vegan please go vegan Veganism is all about nonviolence First and foremost it s about nonviolence to other sentient beings But it s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself The World is Vegan If you want it Gary L Francione Professor Rutgers University 2012 Gary L Francione Postscript added July 13 2012 A number of people have written to me in the past day asking me whether I consider eating clams to be vegan These inquiries were prompted by the video linked to above No I do not regard consuming these nonhumans to be consistent with being a vegan In the case of plants we can be as certain about nonsentience as as we can be about anything The case for nonsentience in the case of clams oysters etc is not certain and therefore it seems to me to make good moral sense to have a presumption in favor of sentience

  • The Legacy of Lennox - Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach
    who dies The worldwide outrage over this injustice shows that many of us do have moral concern about nonhumans If we could ignite the moral spark and generalize that moral concern so that all of those upset over the death of Lennox could become similarly outraged over the deaths of the billions of animals killed annually for food we d have an animal rights movement The pathetic happy meat compassionate consumption movement that presently exists has nothing to do with animal rights it has to do with making humans feel better about consuming nonhumans Lennox was killed unjustly That was wrong Those who object to what happened to Lennox should recognize that continuing to consume animals makes us no different from the Belfast City Council If you are not vegan please go vegan And educate others in a creative and nonviolent ways about how veganism is the only rational response to the recognition that animals matter morally And if you have the ability to adopt a homeless animal of any species please do so If you adopt consider a pit bull or pit bull mix They are wonderful dogs Let our raised consciousness about justice for all nonhumans be the legacy of Lennox Gary L Francione Professor Rutgers University 2012 Gary L Francione Postscript added July 16 2012 Some animal advocates are calling for a tourism boycott of Northern Ireland and the Olympics in response to the tragic killing of Lennox This shows how confused many animal advocates are First why Northern Ireland New York City kills more pit bulls in a day than Northern Ireland and the entire United Kingdom has probably killed in years Second millions of animals are being killed every minute of every day everywhere around the world and the response a boycott focused on one
