In this first Commentary, Prof. Gary L. Francione discusses whether we should promote vegetarianism as a “gateway” to veganism.
“I conclude that the answer is ‘no.’
The bottom line: if you are a vegetarian, you are still complicit in animal suffering; you are still complicit in animal killing.
If you regard animals as nonhuman moral persons, why would you be complicit in animal suffering and death?
I hope that you find this Commentary and our future efforts useful for your thinking about animal ethics.”
