Rutgers law professor claims domestication is torture


Washington Times reports that two Rutgers University law professors published an article that likens the domestication of animals as pets to a form of torture that is both morally and ethically wrong.

In The Case against Pets, Gary Francione and Anna Charlton say that they oppose domestication and pet ownership because they violate the fundamental rights of animals.

The couple who have six rescue dogs themselves, call their dogs non-human refugees who should not have existed in the first place.

In the essay, they state, “Non-human animals have a moral right not to be used exclusively as human resources, irrespective of whether the treatment is ‘humane’, and even if humans would enjoy desirable consequences if they treated non-humans exclusively as replaceable resources.”

Adoption lawyers in Thailand specialize in the Thai adoption law for either non-Thai parents in Thailand or step parent adoption of non-biological children in Thailand

“When we talk about animal rights, we are talking primarily about one right: the right not to be property. The reason for this is that if animals matter morally – if animals are not just things – they cannot be property.”

They argued that it is inhumane to treat animals differently than humans. If humans were treated the same way animals are for food, it would equate to torture.
