There is no ‘respect’ for animals because they are only products to people who continue to torture and kill them. You seem to think that you have a tiny bit of compassion and you are only willing to use it on your own species, bolstered by an irrational belief that animals don’t have souls. You are capable of enormous kindness and mercy. You are not dead yet. I hope you find a way to connect to that in yourself and stop making excuses for your cruelty.
