  •  Is that a serious question? (0+ / 0-)

    Because they suffer, and we have a choice not to participate in that suffering. Justify it all you want, but the moral question is no more complicated than that.

    •  Actually, yes (1+ / 0-)

      And, no, that's not an answer.  You're asking about our moral duties, not an animal's moral standing.  The original question was "What gives you the right..."; my response is "What evidence is that that I need anything to give me that right?"  Saying "They suffer" does not answer that question.

      •  You're evading the basic truth (0+ / 0-)

        that non-human animals suffer by your participation in killing them with a strained argument about "moral standing," which as far as I can tell is an intellectual fabrication that serves to justify your preference for eating animals, but has no basis in reality. As I stated previously, justify all you want. And by all means, get creative.
