Animal Abuse should be prohibited, because someday, food will be gone, for animals and humans, when abuse is to harsh, to death for animals. Are YOU the one getting abused? I don't want to try. So be nice. Especially to animals.

Animal abuse is bad. I think everyone with any sense of conscious agrees with that. Should it be prohibited? Maybe not. First we must define animal abuse and prohibit, and we must both reach a consensus on that before we advance.

Does prohibition mean absolute prohibition? That if someone purposefully abuses an animal for any purpose, then a punishment must be dealt by the government? Or is animal abuse ok on some level, but not on another. Also, who has the authority to prohibit animal abuse?

Also, what constitutes animal abuse? Is animal testing considered animal abuse? is bestiality considered animal abuse? While this seems like a very clear cut case of "Animal abuse is bad, therefore animal abuse should be prohibited." But it becomes much more complicated if one delves deeper into the issue.
