Humans and Animals should have the same rights. the government allows people to abuse animals and they allow them to de-fur and cook them but yet no one does anything about it but eat them to

Good luck, Pro, interesting topic. While I am not for the mistreatment of animals, the idea that they should have the "same" rights as humans is a poorly phrased construction. Animals are not capable of cognizant thought, and to give them the same rights as people would result in a huge cutback of human rights, down to "don't abuse other humans." We could elevate animal rights to the current standard of human rights, but that is wildly impractical, as animals would not be able to take full advantage of them, and granting animals Constitutional rights does not provide a net good for society.
