Animal Liberation

Singer's Opinion
In class we discussed Singer’s views on animal liberation. Singer claims that animal suffering matters just as human suffering which he calls speciesism. A Speciesiest would be one that shows cruelty to animals or being prejudice to animals.

On the other hand Bentham believes that pain is for good. Which supports the idea that animals are here to provide protein for humans which makes this a good deed, but the animal has to suffer. Many people opposed to this theory state that humans can attain protein through numerous different ways (i.e. Lesser mammals, vegatables, etc.). During class I argued that animals are here for just that to provide protein for humans so pain suffering dose not matter. We argued that if animals had the ability to think for themselves. We as humans do so our lives seem more valuable than animals. Singer argues if someone can feel pleasure and pain we should take it seriously.
