Guide to Animal Rights
Animals have some similarities to human beings because they are conscious and they are responsive. Animals have their differences, and they are unique in their own ways, and many pet owners would tell you that each respond differently and they need care and protection too. Since animals are lower than human beings, there are many people who believe that they cannot feel and that we should not be so concerned about animal welfare.
Animals deserve life, and there are some groups that do not give these rights and privileges to them. Some groups believe that humans should be above all animals and there is a moral distinction between them. Lastly are those people who believe that animals cannot feel, sense, or experience the same things that a human can and that an animal should not be given the same status as a human. These beliefs came from a faulty sense of righteousness and entitlements. When the cognitive biases are overcome, the reality that all animals do have rights becomes significant.
Another right that animals have is the right to thrive in a clean, safe, and sustainable environment. We all know humans have this kind of behavior to destroy the natural world like what they do to lush rainforests which soon becomes flat lands and rich coral reefs are turned into ocean wastelands. Humans who destroy the natural ecosystem for their own gain are guilty of depriving animals a basic right to have a clean and safe home. We can closely link the animal rights movement to the green movement because of this.
