Hu245 Unit 9 Assignment 9 Animals Rights

Hello Prof and class,This week we are posing a very difficult question. And one that we can simply answer,but is much harder to explain. Do I believe animals have rights? Well not in the same sense thatwe as humans do, but everything that lives has a right to exist. Now do we as people have anobligation to protect them? Yes. We as humans have the highest level of reasoning on our planetand therefore that means we are the most powerful By being the most powerful that also meanswe have an obligation and responsibility to care for everything we can. “Because humans canreason, they should realize that nature is intrinsically valuable and must be nurtured and relatedto in a meaningful manner” (Theroux and Krasemann, 2015, p. 348). Now I feel that actutilitarianism is the key to our balance with nature. Whatever we do within nature, creative ordestructive, should be for the benefit of the most people or all parties involved.
