A Question for Animal Ethics Readers

Animal Ethics

I'd love to know whether philosophical reflection and argumentation has had an impact on your moral attitudes toward animals or on the moral attitudes towards animals of someone you know. Please read the post by Megan McArdle that Keith linked to in his post from yesterday. Then, click on "Comments" below to answer the question that Keith posed on his personal blog : Has anyone out there met someone who was persuaded to give up eating meat as a result of an argument?

Hi Keith, You may be interested in a new post on Ethics Soup regarding rights of farm animals. Ethics Soup is a fairly new blog and I'm looking for ways to drive traffic to the blog to gain some readers. Perhaps as a follow-up to your Nov 5th post "Legal Rights for Animals" on your Animal Rights Blog, or any other blog that features ethics issues.

Peter Singer on Animal Rights

Animal Ethics

40 Ways to Help Lab Animals

Critter News

Thanks to Patty at Animal Rights-Do Whatever is Necessary for reposting this list of 40 ways to help lab animals. When you read stories in major newspapers and magazines such as the New York Times, Washington Post, and Newsweek, be wary of simplification, bias, and a tendency to support traditional views indifferent to animals’ interests. There are many excellent books on issues related to animal research.
