Look since we are all animals, granting animals rights also gives us rights too.
The point is that animals do have rights, its just that capitalism ignores these rights to make bigger profits.

If you colude(?) in the denial of anyones / anythings rights you are inevitably lessening your own rights.

North American immegrants denide the aboriginal indians their lands rights, now they ( the immegrants) find in a slightly more liberal regime that they are having to give the land back that they stole. In other words they don't have the right to the land.

Do you understand ?

Why shouldn't people value the lives of all living things equally?
I imagine you probably find it convinient to ignore the rights of living things when they get in your way / cost you more money.

Free range eggs cost more because the animals are treated properly, you should not be allowed to eat battery eggs just because its cheeper. If you can't afford to eat free range meat and eggs etc. You will have to go with out ,

Instead of abusing loads of animals for your tastes. 80% of the world owned by 20% of the population are you free from guit . Your very existance is an abuse of millions of peoples rights. So is my existance but at least I understand why and am trying to do something about it on EVERY level.

Eat the rich!
