About the Animal Welfare category


#1

More of us are becoming aware of the impact we have on animals. Please share your thoughts, and questions about animal rights here.

Is it ever OK to eat, own, exploit, or perform tests on animals?

Many older people grew up eating animals, wearing their hide, watching them perform stunts at shows, or keeping them captive in one way or another at our homes. It’s only in recent decades that more and more of us are becoming aware of the impact we have on animals. Please share your thoughts, experiences, and questions about animal rights here.

Some ideas on what to share might include, but are not limited to, the following. These are merely suggestions:

  • What rights should animals have?

  • Is it morally acceptable for scientists to use animals in research that could be used to cure humans?

  • How do you feel about zoos and circuses?

  • What are your thoughts on hunting and fishing?

As always, please express yourself freely but try to be respectful of others. You never know what impact your words might have on someone else.

Thank you,
