Should Human Life Be Valued Above Animal Life?

The human race cannot progress if time is wasted debating if other species should be valued above our own.

Pros
Cons
  • A discussion about valuing animal life over human life is laughable in a world where the majority of mankind is undervalued and oppressed by their own kind.

  • Humans are considered to be a subspecies of the animal kingdom, so favouring humans could be considered to be irrationally favouring a specific animal.

  • Progress won't be stopped for applying more ethical and empathetic behaviours to another species. Both can exist at the same time.
