    I have, if an animal exhibits sentience or pain not in relevance to nociception, which is what you call "pain" in insects (wrong) then they deserve these rights.

    Yes, we are omnivores, but we are perfectly capable of going without meat. I never said we need to give up our meat supply, we have alternatives, and we could just cut back.

    I mean that those who label themselves as free range are usually full of **** when you see what the "free range" is.

    We need a DP pig roast this summer. This thread made me think of that.

    I give up, then again what do you expect from someone who supports communism. A failed system on all fronts.

    I won't say that you're saying animals have a right to live, since we like to eat some of them, but you ARE saying they have a right to not be harmed unnecessarily. Qualifications regarding ability to understand are neither here nor there. We still advocate those unable to understand some level of right of protection.
