Abolitionist Approach Blog

10 entries in the feed.


Gary Francione discusses and explores various aspects of the idea that we ought to abolish, and not merely regulate, animal exploitation. His blog promotes ethical veganism and creative, non-violent vegan education as the primary forms of activism to move toward the abolition of animal use.

  • An Observation
    In human history, no conduct has generated more vacuous excuses than animal use. Attempts to justify animal use have generated some of the most profoundly silly statements ever made. The desire to consume animal products has clouded some of the most brilliant minds who ever lived, reducing them to making statements that a small child […] The post (...more)

  • The Animal Confusion Movement
    All of the large animal charities are partnering with industry to promote happy exploitation. All of the large animal charities and their supporters reject abolition as it is presented here: ' a rejection of the status of animals as property and recognition of nonhuman personhood based only on sentience; ' an emphasis on veganism as […] The (...more)

  • Statement on “Abolitionist” and “Abolitionist Vegan” Groups
    I have no formal affiliation with any organization, including those that characterize themselves as “abolitionist” or “abolitionist vegan” organizations. Some people who get exposed to my work get excited and decide to start “abolitionist” or “abolitionist vegan” groups. I am not sure why these people (...more)

  • An HSUS Reprimand and My Reply
    Someone from the The Farm Animal Protection Corporate Outreach Program at the Humane Society of the United States sent me a poster bearing the standard welfarist slogan, “don’t be divisive,” apparently to reprimand me for not getting with the corporate program: (Click to enlarge.) I liked the color scheme and general layout. Here is (...more)

  • Vegan Society “Ambassador”: Veganism is not “for everyone” and “it's not probably for very many people.”
    Marathan runner Fiona Oakes is an “Ambassador” of The Vegan Society. Here’s what Ms. Oakes had to say in a June 2014 BBC Radio interview (at 3:00 minutes in): I run in a positive proactive kind of way to promote a vegan diet…I’m not saying that it’s for everyone, I’m saying that it’s not probably […] The (...more)

    Jenna Woginrich, supposedly a former vegetarian/vegan (she has used both terms), has been aggressively pimping “happy meat” for about five years now. She claims: My beef, after all, wasn’t with beef. It was with how the cow got to my plate in the first place. One way to make sure the animals I ate lived […] The post PROFILE OF (...more)

  • This Morning's “I agree with you but” Email
    I get hundreds of emails and private messages every day. A common theme is “I agree with you but” and a common version of that theme is to criticize me for not patting people on the head because they are not vegans but are on “journeys” toward being vegan. Here’s one that greeted me this […] The post This Morning’s (...more)

  • I Brought The Vegan Society “Into Disrepute.” I Insisted That The Vegan Society Be Vegan.
    I have been critical recently of the “rebrand” of The Vegan Society, which, as I have explained has a major flaw: it doesn’t promote veganism. I have in the past been critical of The Vegan Society for taking paid advertisements in in its magazine, The Vegan, which promote non-vegan restaurants and inns. For example, I […] The (...more)

  • New to Abolition? Start Here.
    Are you new to abolition? There’s a lot to learn, and, if you have been a member of one of the large animal welfare charities, a lot to unlearn! If you are interested in learning about the abolitionist approach, I recommend you start with these three essays: 1. Animal Welfare Regulation, “Happy Exploitation,” and Speciesism […] The post (...more)

  • The Modern “Animal Movement” in a Nutshell (5)
    '''''''''' If you are not vegan, please go vegan. Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself. It’s easy to go vegan and if you agree that animals have moral (...more)
