Should humans? If so why, and what differentiates humans from other animals that would make animals deserve or not deserve those same rights/protections?

Side: Yes.

Yes, for both. i think humans and animals, both have the right, to their bodies, for example.

Side: Yes.

This is not a very specific debate like farm animals and pets or animals on a ranch? Because every animal should have the right to be free from abuse and neglect. But when it comes to say animals who will end up in a slaughter house eventually this gets tricky. These animals should not be abused in any way and should be cared for. And when it comes to slaughter it should be fast and effective no room for error. Effective as in guaranteed death upon being shot or head chopped off when it comes to chickens. I know when I worked on a family ranch we treated the cows with respect and gave them plenty of grain and gave them more than enough grass and land to feed off of and play around in. And I know we made it quick 1 round from a 22 LR to the brain put them down without pain as the bullet killed them on impact.

But house pets and farm animals as in animals on a petting zoo or chickens for eggs or sheep for the wool or cows for milk. These animals should have the right to be handled at least a few times a week by humans brushing up on them and stuff to make them more comfortable.

How am I trolling? I answered why certain animals should have rights.And why other animals should not have the same rights as a house pet. If you think I am trolling than you are an actual idiot. I will not put actual effort into a debate with someone new like you if I was just trolling. I would of given you a 3 word answer instead I gave you my answer for both ranch animals and house pets than gave you an explanation for both answers.

Air, water, fish, animals and humans ALL need legal protections from those who would exploit them. All are important to the world (with the possible exception of orange monkey's ;-), so why wouldn't we protect them??

Side: Yes.

I agree. Animals never deserve to suffer, because they are not sinners, like humans, and killing for no valid reason, is a dick move

Side: Yes.

Sin is to act against the will of God. It was God's will to design us to be sinners. That means sinning is inherently not sinful. Mind blown or nah?

The right, to not be tortured.

Does that mean I have the right to not hear stupid people? But doesn't that conflict with their right to say stupid things?

Side: Yes.
