Veganism and Animal Rights

Lets get something straight. There is something seriously wrong with our society. We have actually turned animals, that think and feel, into sandwiches and coats. What is wrong with us. Good people follow the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Animals qualify as others. They do because they feel like we do. Pain, fear, grief etc. Meat, dairy and egg eaters don't care about animals. They don't care about what pain they cause on others. As long as they get their...

Animal Rights

Gay marriage is wrong. It does affect us completely. It is obviously not intended to happen because you can't sexually reproduce. It is an evil people have justified to make themselves "feel" good and it should be looked as such....

Animal rights are equal to human rights because the only difference between a humans and animals are humans brains are more advanced. so we believe animals shouldnt get slaughtered and eaten just for others to pay off their mortgage. so believe that we shouldn't harm animals and when they hurt us it is only because we have hurt them....

First round is for acceptance. No new arguments in the final round. BOP is shared (i.e. offense is expected from both sides). "Opt-in" voting standards apply (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vWrUtwoRSvVqxw9MmqeajStGDbiXpYxPy2_pN6toOFM/edit?usp=sharing)....

Animal rights are meaningless from a secular viewpoint

AsianCalamari

Introduction:This is my first attempt at a debate on DDO, and I look forward to an interesting and engaging conversation.In this debate, we will be arguing from a purely secular viewpoint; Con cannot use a religious argument such as "Religion X states that animals should not be killed". Likewise, Pro cannot use the argument "Religion Y permits the killing of animals".I, Pro, will argue that the concept of animals being entitled to rights is arbitrary through the lens of a secular worldview - it...

Animal Rights

All animals have a right to life. They were born into this world having the right to have someone care for it like a new born baby. Helpless and unknowing of what this world is capable of. How this world can destroy a life. No one has the right to decide whether or not someone or something should live or die. I stand with the side of life and try to protect what I can because I love animals. I'm not saying everyone has to love animals, but not liking animals does not give the right to kill an an...

I am against animal rights. I shall define animal rights. Animal rights-rights believed to belong to animals to live free from use in medical research, hunting, and any and all other services to humans. Whoever accepts shall say why animal rights are a positive and should stay in place. Burden of proof is shared here....
