Hi, need to submit a 1250 words paper on the topic Uniqueness of Every Species. 2. It is essentially wrong to use animals for experiments as we are killing living beings. The experiments are done for human benefits mostly and using animals for this purpose is cruel. Animals can feel pain and giving pain is unethical. Hence this practice needs to be stopped.
Cohen’s argument cannot be agreed upon as animals have rights as they have life. The animals should not be exploited for human needs. They feel pain and if they have the life they got the right to live. Rights are not an asset of human only the creator has given the right to live, eat, defend to all creatures.
Warren is wrong in arguing that the life of animals is less important than human beings. We are thinking of our perceptive but for animals, their life is as important as our life is precious for us. Do animals have the right to live if not why do they exist on earth?
Moral vegetarianism is an ethical concept as eating animal products is not the right way of diet. When we have so many plant foods we need not kill animals for our pleasure. Animals are bound to live till their life span exist and we need to eat food products which have no killing involved.
1. The life of penguins has value even if we do not give it a value. Human has no right to judge anybody’s value on earth. We are no one to value life as we do not understand the value of it as we kill each other and animals.
1. Definitely songbirds and cockroaches have right to exist. What is the reason for a human to exist? Just like us, they are born on this earth and as much as us they have the right to live. They add to the beauty of nature and have a purpose in the ecosystem. All creation is a part of nature and even an atom has its value and purpose.
The author is right about environmental ethics as rivers and mountains being non-sentient need protection from sentient beings like humans. .
