Title: Animal Rights


1
Animal Rights
2
What is a right?
  • Something that the law allows you to have/do
  • An entitlement that is protected by the law
  • A privilege / benefit granted to everyone

3
Can animals have the same rights as humans?
  • Some people say yes and some say no

4
Can animals have the same rights as humans?
  • No because
  • They can not exercise their rights eg. right to
    free speech, right to religion, freedom from
    arrest. Can not defend their rights
  • Animals unlike humans are not self conscious.
    They do not see themselves as having a past and
    future
  • Animals do not choose how to live - they have to
    adapt themselves to the environment
  • For some its the belief that man was created by
    God as his most important creation so animals are
    of less importance
  • God appointed man as his steward deputy on
    earth and told to rule over the animals. Some
    people believe this means man can use animals in
    any way he chooses.

5
Can animals have the same rights as humans?
  • Yes because
  • They feel pain and suffer
  • They show pleasure and experience happiness
  • People are given rights even if they are not
    capable of exercising them eg because of ill
    health
  • We give rights to children even if they are not
    self conscious or autonomous and even though they
    can not defend them.
  • For some people its simply that, as living beings
    that share our planet, they deserve the same.

6
Do animals deserve rights?
  • Some would say that, even if they can not be
    given the same rights as humans, animals deserve
    -
  • To be respected as living beings
  • Have the right not to be abused and exploited (
    taken advantage of )
  • They should be protected and not harmed
    unnecessarily

7
How can man use animals?
  • For food?
  • For medical research?
  • For sport?
  • For friendship?
  • For transport?
  • For entertainment?
  • To help the disabled?
  • For work?

8
Should all animals be treated the same?
  • Is it all right to kill a rat because its a
    pest, but not right to kill a fox by hunting it?
  • Is it right to experiment on a mouse but not a
    dog or a chimpanzee
  • Is it right to breed pigs for food but not breed
    animals for experiments?
