Supporters of animal rights believe that animals have an inherent worth—a value completely separate from their usefulness to humans. We believe that every creature with a will to live has a right to live free from pain and suffering. Animal rights is not just a philosophy—it is a social movement that challenges society’s traditional view that all nonhuman animals exist solely for human use.
People often ask if animals should have rights, and quite simply, the answer is “Yes!” Animals surely deserve to live their lives free from suffering and exploitation. Jeremy Bentham, the founder of the reforming utilitarian school of moral philosophy, stated that when deciding on a being’s rights, “The question is not ‘Can they reason?’ nor ‘Can they talk?’ but ‘Can they suffer?’” In that passage, Bentham points to the capacity for suffering as the vital characteristic that gives a being the right to equal consideration. The capacity for suffering is not just another characteristic like the capacity for language or higher mathematics. All animals have the ability to suffer in the same way and to the same degree that humans do. They feel pain, pleasure, fear, frustration, loneliness, and motherly love. Whenever we consider doing something that would interfere with their needs, we are morally obligated to take them into account.

Humans have no nutritional need for cow's milk. Cows milk is designed to provide a baby calf with adequate nutrients to grow from 70 pounds to about 1,000 pounds in one year. And it contains casomorphins, addictive compounds similar to morphine, to ensure that the calf will stay near its mother, safely nursing and growing. Casomorphins are addictive for humans and the effects are highly amplified in cheese making giving up dairy a challenge and cheese actually an addiction.
Casein, the main protein in cow’s milk, is believed to be one of the most potent carcinogens ever identified. This means that it plays a huge role in the development of cancer.
Milk creates lots of mucus in the human body (sinus infections anyone?) and increases cholesterol and your chance of getting heart disease.-from Forks Over Knives, T. Colin Campbell PHD. and Caldwell Esselstyn JR.
It takes 5000 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef. 25 gallons to produce 1 pound of wheat.
You actually save more water by not eating 1 pound of beef than you do by not showering for an entire year.- John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
The livestock sector produces more greenhouse gasses than all SUVs cars trucks planes and ships in the world combined.-2006 UN report "Livestock’s Long Shadow: Environmental Issues and Options"
