Should the consumption of animal products be banned? Here.
In this book, Jan Deckers addresses the most crucial question that people must deliberate in relation to how we should treat other animals: whether we should eat animal products. Many people object to the consumption of animal products from the conviction that it inflicts pain, suffering, and death upon animals. This book argues that a convincing ethical theory cannot be based on these important concerns: rather, it must focus on our interest in human health. Tending to this interest demands not only that we extend speciesism-the attribution of special significance to members of our own species merely because they belong to the same species as ourself-towards nonhuman animals, but also that we safeguard the integrity of nature.
A Catholic university sponsors this kind of nonsense?
Would the ban apply to cats? My cats caught and ate a bird last week. Do readers have any idea how hard it is to sweep up feathers floating around a basement floor?
