Animals should have at least animal welfare, amirite?

Vote agree if your for animal welfare and/or animal rights. Disagree if you against both. Animal welfare means protection against unnecessary suffering. This would protect an animal from a human arbitrarily causing suffering to animal.

"2. Welfare
Animals should have welfare. We should treat animals kindly, but humans always come first when there is a conflict of interest, because humans are superior and animals are a resource for humanity. Welfarists acknowledge the need to use animals but try to alleviate 'needless' animal suffering. This is the position most people in the West support today."

The voters have decided that vegan is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

At the very least we need to alleviate excess suffering from animals. Why would we put animals through outdated practices that inflict more pain than usual? I see no reason to perform redundant experimentation on animals.

Finally, this pushes the limit on animal welfare, I am against factory farming. I do not see humans benefiting from the cheap meat. Antibiotics and increased transmission of disease.

"The unnatural feeds, hormones, and excessive quantities of antibiotics used on factory farms put the human population at risk for chronic disease, obesity, and drug-resistant bacteria, and pose the threat of major zoonotic disease outbreaks"

Therefore, I conclude that factory farming is not within the best interest of humans nor animals. Thus no conflict of interest between human and animal welfare. Only a conflict of interest between corporations greed versus the layman and animals.

My animals already live on welfare. They don't work, they sleep when they want, where they want, and eat when they want, and I still have to clean up their shit. And they never do the dishes either. What a life!

if you mean on those minority of farms where they don't get any room to walk, sure. but most farms (at least where i live} the cows have big open fields to live in, they are properly looked after, meaning if they get sick they get antibiotics to help fight disease, etc etc.

These minority farms are much bigger and higher yield. If you want a detailed analysis of factory farms here's below.
