Regardless to the definition, what do we have as humans that justifies needlessly killing any other sentient being for our pleasure when there are cheaper plant-based alternatives? Beneath many differences, there is sameness. Like us, these animals embody the mystery and wonder of consciousness. Like us, they are not only in the world; they are aware of it. Like us, they are the psychological centers of a life that is uniquely their own. In these fundamental respects, humans stand on “all-fours”, so to speak, with hogs, cattles, chickens, and turkeys.
