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...

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.

That society ought to recognize animal rights

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...

Affirmative Cases: a philosophical approach to defining animal rights. One of the single biggest issues in rounds so far for the Sept/Oct topic has been the definition of what animal rights would look like "in the real world". Defining precisely what animal rights we're talking about has been a source of great confusion and a number of rounds have been greatly muddled by squabbling over definitions. Specifically for the affirmative, defining animal rights has been a particularly troublesome...
