Animals should have their own rights as us humans and we should respect that and give them the same respect we give each other

Animals should have their own rights as us humans and we should respect that and give them the same respect we give each other. Animals deserve to be given those same basic rights as humans. All humans are considered equal and the ethical principles and legal statutes should protect the rights of animals to live according to their own nature. Some people might argue that animals should not be allowed to have rights because they don’t feel pain or have feeling.
First of all, Animals should have rights because they’re living things such as us humans because animals should be given rights simply because they are living things. The opposition stated that animals should not be given rights because they do not contribute to the society of today. But I disagree because we should give animals rights and respect because they are like us humans in many ways such as feeling pain, thinking. and having emotions. Some people may disagree say that animals should not have rights because they’re dumb and they cannot think.
Second, Animals should be treated the same as humans because the earth wasn’t only made for just humans it was made for all living things animals should be treated with the same rights as humans. An animal doesn’t want to die and it will never give its consent to be killed which means that humans don’t have the right to be killing animals, like humans, have feelings, friends, and families. Imagine the pain they must feel when you rip this away from them with the cut of a knife just to pleasure yourself with some beef or meat. “According to The Humane Society of the United States approximately ten billion cattle, chickens, ducks, hogs, sheep, lambs, and turkeys were killed for food in the United States in 2018”
Third, Animals every day all over the world are getting mistreated and abused by humans who simply do not care for them. They are few people attempting to protest these animals whether they are farm animals, domestic animals, and wildlife animals. Some animals are used for entertaining purposing such as using dogs to fight each other to get the pleasure of people. Many species around the world such as mice, fish, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, farm animals apes are all types of animals that are used for animals testing used to figure out different types of medicine for humans and laboratory experiments.
