Animal Rights

People who abuse, or abandon animals should be punished greatly. They should be tortured, rapped, or killed. I think that any of these would be great justice for the poor innocent animals that they mistreated. But I believe that they should be tortured, slowly, and very painfully. ((:...

Animal Rights

Round One: This is just for acceptance, rules, and definitions. Burdens: Pro has the burden to show that animals should have some rights and Con has the burden of showing that animals should have no rights. Provisos: (1) Let's limit this to non-human, vertebrate members of the Kingdom of Animalia, (2) This is just a discussion in the abstract--should animals have some rights, it's not about what particular rights the animals have, and (3) when I say some rights, that could mean one or more...

Topic: A just government ought to grant non-human animals some rights. Round One: This is just for acceptance, rules, and definitions. Burdens: Burden of Proof is shared. Pro shows some rights should be granted; Con shows that some rights should not be extended. Provisos: (1) Let"s limit this to non-human, vertebrate members of the Kingdom of Animalia, (2) This is just a discussion in the abstract"do animals have some rights, it"s not about what particular rights the animals have, and (...

Animal Rights

I will keep my argument short and simple. Animals should have rights. Animals are not toys, servants or objects they are living and breathing organisms. Animals , despite popular belief, do feel pain and do have some emotions. Animals are tortured and killed every day. Yes, We do need some animals for use of food/products but at what cost ? Humans are destroying this planet, we can be very wasteful and destructive. Without animals none of us would be alive, they help us with many things and are...

Animal rights

My opponent will argue that Animals do not have rights. Here are my examples why they do have rights. First- Animals have "similar" rights as we do they may not be able to vote or do certain things that we humans can but here is some rights, they have the right to breath, they have right to live, the right to not be killed, and the right to not be held in captivity. Second- They have the right to do as they please, meaning they can think and do whatever action they choose....

That society ought to recognize animal rights

larztheloser
Zaradi

This is for the second official DDO Tournament, and this is the second round. It is a great honor to be debating Zaradi again, and to have this oppertunity to discuss this really important topic.Once again I don't think either of us will really try to cheat with our definitions. "Society" is to be taken in the most general possible sense, so pointing out specific people who have better things to do than care about animal rights is not sufficient to carry the motion. Generally th...
