Ethics and Animals
Is there something distinctive about humanity that justifies the idea that humans have moral status while non-humans do not? Providing an answer to this question has become increasingly important among philosophers as well as those outside of philosophy who are interested in our treatment of non-human animals. For some, answering this question will enable us to better understand the nature of human beings and the proper scope of our moral obligations. Some argue that there is an answer that can distinguish humans from the rest of the natural world. Many of those who accept this answer are interested in justifying certain human practices towards non-humans—practices that cause pain, discomfort, suffering and death.

Animal ethics is a branch of ethics which examines human-animal relationships, the moral consideration of animals and how nonhuman animals ought to be treated. The subject matter includes animal rights , animal welfare , animal law , speciesism , animal cognition , wildlife conservation , wild animal suffering ,  the moral status of nonhuman animals, the concept of nonhuman personhood , human exceptionalism , the history of animal use, and theories of justice. The history of the regulation of animal research was a fundamental step towards the development of animal ethics, as this was when the term "animal ethics" first emerged. Many did not support this act as it communicated that if there was human benefit resulting from the tests, the suffering of the animals was justifiable.
This article presents a theory of animal rights developed from basic categories in moral and political philosophy about the nature and sources of rights. It concentrates on aspects of contemporary rights theory that are suited to the analysis and justification of animal rights. It argues that rights are justified claims that individuals, groups, and institutions can press upon others or upon society. The discussion proposes a robust theory of animal rights that would significantly alter many current practices. A critical part of this argument is that there is a firm correlativity between rights and obligations: all rights entail obligations and all obligations entail rights.
Animal Welfare pp Cite as. Bernard E. Rollin has written several books on animal welfare and our moral obligation to respect it when using animals for research or for food related activities. In his earliest work, Animal Rights and Human Morality , Rollin argues that non-human animals have a moral right to have their interests considered and they have a moral right to life.
Rollin’s Theory of Animal Welfare and Its Ethical Implications
Historically, the scientific community—at least in the USA—did not perceive the use of animals in research as an ethical issue. Anyone who raised questions about the way animals were kept and treated during experiments ran the risk of being stigmatized as an anti-vivisectionist; a misanthrope preferring animals to people; or an ingrate who did not value the contributions of biomedical science to human health and well-being. To be fair, anti-vivisectionists were not much more sophisticated at the time—conceptually or morally. The day after I received the published review, abolitionists criticized the book, castigating me for accepting the reality of science, and scolding me for proposing regulations that would result in short-term improvements for animals, thereby retarding the complete abolition of animal research. Although abolitionists argue that using animals in biomedical research produces no benefits for humans, the scientific community has adopted an equally extreme position. The query in the title is uttered by a frightened child before undergoing surgery; the physician's response is that he will be all right if anti-vivisectionist extremists let scientists get on with their animal testing. When I attended the premiere of the film at the annual meeting of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science in , before a putatively friendly audience of laboratory animal veterinarians, the only comment came from an attendee who said that he was ashamed to be associated with something pitched lower than the worst anti-vivisectionist propaganda.
- Может быть, у них закоротило генератор. Как только освобожусь, загляну в шифровалку и… - А что с аварийным питанием. Если закоротило генератор, почему оно не включилось. - Не знаю. Может быть, Стратмор прогоняет что-то в ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ и на это ушло все аварийное питание. - Так почему он не отключит эту свою игрушку.

На самом деле в ней использовался уран, как и в ее сестрице, сброшенной на Хиросиму. - Но… - Сьюзан еле обрела дар речи. - Если оба элемента - уран, то как мы найдем различие между. - А вдруг Танкадо ошибся? - вмешался Фонтейн.
