... ANIMAL RIGHTS Now the question of 'Do animals have rights?' is a bit of stupid one really. Of course they do.

AdvantagesThey have same fundamental rights as humans

DisadvantagesPeople 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 this as a topic to write about... as a result, I hope that this will be a fairly unbiased assessment of the question which is posed in this article. ..."

AdvantagesYes

DisadvantagesNo

"...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 rights protestors, which was widely portrayed in the media (in an unfairly negative light).

We call ourselves human.

AdvantagesWe should care more for our planet.

DisadvantagesWe should be ashamed.

Who Decides Animal Rights? Animals? Human Beings?

AdvantagesAnimal Rights get heard about

DisadvantagesSadly animals dont get to read this

"...and elephant and forced to do labour thats hard? Of Course No, Such a treatment will immediately be termed as Slavery. So what is it that we inflict on Animals? Slavery? I cant seem to find another word to describe it. So when Slavery is not acceptable to Humans, how can that be acceptable to animals. Just because animals cannot rebel as we humans do and stand up against Slavery, we violate Animal rights. You could contradict m y statement by saying, ..." Read review

How human the modern mankind is

Advantagesanimals SHOULD have rights!!!

Disadvantagespeople would have to give up their own "rights" and think of others, too

"...for me doesn't mean I do agree to the way this is done, as well as I don't agree to the conditions cattle and poultry are kept and bred in. You'll see bitterness and anger in my article and that's just what I feel, because I'm utterly disappointed in so called modern society, which seems to completely fail to honour the morale in some matters, blind to suffering of others as long as we come out as winners. I. Cruel predators I believe we ..." Read review
