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.

  • The Animal Rights Movement: Moving Backwards
    Here is a video of the talk I gave at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada, on August 12, 2016: ********** 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. […] The post The Animal (...more)

  • Essay on Domestication and Pet Ownership
    Our essay on domestication and pet ownership was published by Aeon. It’s generated quite a bit of controversy, including being the subject of a comment by Wesley Smith in the The National Review. The Abolitionist position on domestication is also explored in other posts on this site, including here and here. ********** If you are […] The (...more)

  • A Plea To Feminists Who Are Vegetarian But Who Still Consume Dairy or Eggs
    Please rethink your position. Dairy products represent a fundamental violation of the rights of nonhumans. Dairy is not morally distinguishable from meat. Indeed, dairy represents a violation of rights that should be of great concern to feminists: Cows are repeatedly and forcibly impregnated using a device called the “rape rack.” Their babies (...more)

  • Animal Rights and Slavery/Rape Analogies
    Ever since the early 1990s, I have been arguing that the regulation of animal exploitation is not only immoral (if it is morally wrong to exploit animals, it is wrong to promote the supposedly “humane” exploitation of animals), but is, as a practical matter, doomed to failure because the property status of animals means that […] The post Animal (...more)

  • Advocacy Tip: Judge Action, Not Individuals
    You cannot have a useful discussion intended to change the behavior of another if you approach that other person as someone who is evil. That’s just common sense. So always make sure that the person with whom you are talking understands that you are focusing on the immorality of animal exploitation as an institutionalized practice […] The (...more)

  • The Importance of Veganism in Economically Deprived Communities
    In economically deprived communities in the United States, health problems hit people harder than they do in other places because, despite Obama Care, there is still a tremendously inequitable distribution of health resources. Therefore, it becomes even more important to educate people in those communities about how animal foods are harming them, and (...more)

  • Animal Ethics: Simple Common Sense
    Many animal advocates seem to think that if you deliver a vegan message to someone who is not willing to go vegan immediately, that person won’t do anything at all. These animal advocates conclude that we should, instead, promote cage-free eggs, crate-free pork, and reducetarianism. On what is this assumption founded? Common sense tells us […] The (...more)

  • Guest Essay: Dear Vegan Feminists, Where Are You? An Open Letter
    This essay was originally post on Ecorazzi.com. A troll appeared and posted a number of problematic messages. The matter was reported to Ecorazzi and they removed the post for the time being until they return from the Chicago Vegan Food and Drink Festival. In the interim, the essay is available here. ********************************** Dear Vegan Feminists, (...more)

  • The Speciesism of “Plural Approaches”
    In response to a critique of welfare reform and other approaches that actually promote animal exploitation, some supposed animal advocates say that we need “plural approaches.” They say that, in addition to promoting veganism as a moral baseline, we need to promote “happy” exploitation, and moral relativism (e.g., veganism is (...more)
