Is jail time justice for abused farm animals?
If jailing Nichol makes sense, than so would bringing all non-vegans to trial. It’s suffering to be bred, raised, artificially inseminated, torn from you calf, and killed. Suffering not only applies to the living conditions or handling of an animal, but the complete disregard of them having any rights. Since animals are seen are property in the eyes of the law, an animal’s moral value isn’t considered. Although welfarism attempts to counter that property status by bringing up suffering, it actually supports the continued use of animals that aren’t “made to suffer unnecessarily” by saying only those overstepping the laws are wrong.
