Completing an essay on the topic “Animal Rights”.
However, it is the purpose of this essay to convince the reader otherwise. The question at hand is: do animals deserve rights? It must certainly be true. Humans deserve rights and this claim is made on numerous appeals. Of one of the pertinent pleas is made on the claim that humans can feel emotions.

But if there is no significant gulf between humans, that is to say there is no gulf based on skin color, creed, or gender that will make one human more or less valuable than any other, then by what right can a gulf be drawn out between humans and our fellow creatures? The suffering of humans is why we sympathize with each other. Since animals suffer, they deserve our sympathy.

There are many ways to kill an animal without causing it any pain.2I have two different feelings for hunting. I feel that if someone is hunting for food then there is nothing wrong with it. However, I don't feel that it is right to hunt and kill animals for fun or for competition. Too many animals are killed each year by hunters that don't even eat the animals that they kill.
