The notion that we can be “kind”

“Until animal advocates react with as much outrage to the promotion of ‘happy’ exploitation as we all react to the promotion of ‘happy’ pedophilia, there will be no real animal rights movement.”

~ Gary L. Francione

Professor Francione argues that the property status of animals renders meaningless animal welfare laws that prohibit the infliction of “unnecessary” suffering and require the “humane” treatment of nonhumans. Professor Francione’s book, Animals, Property, and the Law (Temple University Press, 1995), provided the first legal analysis of the property status of animals and was described by Tom Regan as a “work of unquestionable historic importance.”

“If you regard animals as members of the moral community, you stop consuming them. Period. Its not a matter of ‘happy’ exploitation; it’s not a matter of exploiting them for some animal products but not for others. It’s a matter of no consumption; no use. All animal products, whatever they are and however ‘humane’ are the products of torture and exploitation.”
