On Moral empathy, animal suffering, family and friends
The Animalist

I appreciate the article and will pay more attention to backgrounds, to the moral beliefs of others, in the future. That said, I think there is a big difference between a vegan lifestyle, which aims to cause as little pain and suffering as possible, and which does not harm those who disagree, and the “pro life” — movement, which aims to have all fertilized human eggs turned into human beings regardless of the cost to the resulting person, or to pregnant teenagers, rape victims, or society as a whole. If your moral convictions hurt others, regardless of how strongly you hold them, I am not going to respect them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
