Eat like you care

Eat like you care is a new book by animal rights activist Gary Francione and Anna Charlton, who are the co-founders of the Rutgers Animal Rights Law Clinic. Excerpts from the publisher’s description:

We all claim to care about animals and to regard them as having at least some moral value. We all claim to agree that it’s wrong to inflict “unnecessary” suffering and death on animals and–whatever disagreement we may have about when animal use is necessary-we all agree that the suffering and death of animals cannot be justified by human pleasure, amusement, or convenience … So how can we justify the fact that we kill many billions of land animals and fish every year for food? However “humanely” we treat and kill these animals, the amount of animal suffering we cause is staggering.
