RS - animal rights

QuestionAnswer
How are animals and humans different? Most humans think they are superior to animals:we eat animals, but kill an animal that eats a person. We make animals do things that we would never ask of a person Humans use reason and logic to work things out-animals seem to behave more out of instinct
List some ways we use animals. They give us companionship - pets. They are part of our diet - we eat them. They entertain us in zoos and circuses. They are used for experiments. They help us with work. Parts of animals are used in clothing.
Why should religious people 'care for' animals? They do vital jobs:wild bees pollinate plants and trees making sure they continue to produce foods for us to eat. They help us in many ways. They believe we were put on the earth to protect them.
What are some issues of farming? Animals are not cared for properly because they are just products. Animals are forced to breed at unnatural rates. Nature versus profit - farming is a business.
What are some issues of using animals for transport and work? This is not their natural life - necessary training is often harsh. Many beasts of burden are not fed or rested properly, and suffer all their lives.
What are some issues of using animals for sport? It is cruel to make two animals fight. Even well-kept animals can just be slaughtered when they are no longer 'good enough'. The animals get injured.
What are some issues of using animals in zoos? The animals are not in their natural environment. They are all caged over night every night (often their most active time in the wild). Breeding programmes are very expensive.
In what ways to animal experiments help us? Further our medical knowledge, test new drugs, test new products for harmfulness.
What are some issues of conducting animal experimentation? It is cruel - even scientists accept the animals suffer. There are other alternatives such as using tissue culture. Animal and human genetics are different, and often reactions are not the same.
What is cloning? When scientists make an exact replica of something by inserting its DNA into an embryo. This is then replanted into an animal's womb to develop.
What is genetic modification? It is taking the DNA of an animal, changing it and creating new forms of the species.
What is an example of when genetic modification has been used to help humans? Scientists have been able to change theD

What is an example of when genetic modification has been used to help humans? Scientists have been able to change the DNA of one species of pig so that its kidneys can be used in human transplants.
What are the issues of the fur and ivory trades? We don't need fur or ivory. Fur farms are very cruel. Ivory poaching has endangered whole species of elephant.
Why is it important that we prevent the extinction of animals? All species have a key role in the ecosystem. They could be used for medicine or research. Our children won't see these creatures. Do we have the right to hunt animals to extinction?
Why do some religions allow meat in their diets? Because God/Allah gave humans dominion over animals, and so they could be used by humans, including as food.
Why are Hindus and Buddhists mainly vegetarian? It is reflecting two important beliefs - ahisma (non-violence) and respect for all life.
