Without a right to ethical consideration, sentient life is commodified, stripped of personhood and traded as property for a ruling class.

Here is an interesting piece from Salon noting the conflict of information we face regarding animals. As noted, although we are increasingly made aware that countless sentient beings, just like companion dogs and cats, are abused and slaughtered for products we don’t really need, those that market animals work hard to convince the public that animal exploitation is necessary to sustain human life. We need legal mechanisms that put a stop to the misinformation, and downright falsehoods, being generated by those that profit from animal consumption.
