“I await your hate mail...”

published 16/07/2009

ProThey have same fundamental rights as humans

ConsPeople can go too far in defending them

DO ANIMALS HAVE RIGHTS? I'm sure for some people reading this, that the subject is quite important to them and if I am brutally honest, I do not really see myself as one of those people. That isn't to say that I have a completely converse opinion, just that I would not have expected to choose...

My experience says the animals don't have any rights and so then I think the question should be "Should animals have rights?" instead. My answer to that is yes and always yes and I'm willing to argue with anybody who disagrees, because I consider the way mankind treats animals shameful, arrogant...

This review marks my big three-o on Ciao, so I wanted to do something different from the usual film and music reviews that I have somehow found myself addicted to… I was also inspired to do this by the recent events concerning the Newchurch Guinea Pig Farm, and the campaign against it by animal...

ProAnimal Rights get heard about

ConsSadly animals dont get to read this

Who Decides Animals Rights??? Animals ??? Human Beings??? Sadly, Human Beings decide on what is Right to animals. Its quite ironic, when we humans cannot even upkeep Human Rights, we try to impose Rights for animals. Recently, I heard a guest speaker on a Radio channel, discussing the animal...

“We call ourselves human.”

published 08/03/2004

ProWe should care more for our planet.

ConsWe should be ashamed.

Do animals have rights? Firstly let’s define the question. No they don’t have many rights, but basically and without hesitating, yes, they should have rights and a lot more than they have now. They have as much right as us human animals to live on this planet peacefully, and without hindrance. I...

“Do Animals Have Rights?”

published 29/06/2005

ProN/a

ConsN/a

Do animals have the right not to be tortured? Do animals have the right not to be put in unnecessary pain? Do our pets have the right to be fed, and looked after? Do animals have the right not to be scared, or suffer unnecessarily? The answer to these questions, for almost all people will be yes...

“Do They?”

ProNone

In my review of whether or not Animals should have Rights, I will be comparing the views of Christians and Muslims, by looking at the Bible and Qur’an. The points I make in this review are things I have noted on in my RE lessons at school. I will discuss the rights Animals may or may not have and...

“Animal rights”

published 23/01/2008

ProToo many to list here

ConsNONE

Does any living thing have rights? Whether it be animal or human? I firmly believe in animal rights, though I am not as hard with my opinions as alot of other people who are for animal rights. I do not believe in animal testing for anything. It is cruel and in todays day and age it is unnecessary...

OOO this could be an awkward subject! I have read quite a few opposing thoughts and thought to myself I think I’ll have a say to! To be perfectly honest, I am a psychologist and we conduct experiments on animals. In the past people have done electro convulsive therapy on animals before trying it...

“Wrong question”

Pron/a

Consn/a

Do animals have rights? Of course they don't. If the question was 'SHOULD animals have rights' it would be a totally different answer. What I'm saying is yes, animals should have rights but no, they don't. And the reason? Mankind thinks that animals are not intelligent enough to have rights...

The whole animal rights debate has become very convoluted over the years. It’s not a terribly simple issue to debate because animals play an extremely different role in everyone’s lives. For many people, the concept of eating something that was once stood grazing in a field is utterly...

Oh yes, animals have rights, but it would sometimes appear that they are only allowed to have the rights we emotive humans permit them to have! Mammalian experimentation makes me cringe, makes me wonder how I would feel if it happened to me. But I’m confident that it won’t, and believe that the...

Warning - I get a bit carried away on this subject! There is no intention to offend. I first became a vegetarian when I was 16. At the time there was no ethical consideration behind it. I simply didn't like meat. I still wore leather, and I didn't really think much about the use of animals in our...

I saw this topic and mulled over whether or not to write my views. It's a controversial area, and the last thing I want to do is alienate someone or anger someone because of how I feel. Nonetheless, I've decided to share my feelings about this issue with you. Everyone has a right to their own...

~ ~ I’m probably going to ruffle a few feathers with this opinion, but so be it. Let me make one thing clear right from the start though, and that is that I am NOT cruel to animals myself, and have no time for anyone who is deliberately cruel to another of God’s creatures. But I DO...
