Essay Topic:
Animal Rights
My ethical perspective on animal rights is that we should take into consideration animal rights. I believe that it is morally wrong to use animals for testing not only scientifically, but for industrial purposes as well.
Ethical Theories:
Utilitarian theory supports my argument because we should take in consideration animals and understand what is the best outcome for them. This theory also takes into consideration humans more than animals but we should understand that animals suffer just as much as us and take that into consideration. I believe that we should think about the best overall outcome when thinking about them..
