Abolitionist Approach Blog

10 posts 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.

  • 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 (...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 (...more)

  • Harambe and the Chicken
    Many people are very upset about the killing of Harambe, the gorilla imprisoned in an Ohio zoo. They ought to be upset. It was wrong to imprison Harambe. It was wrong to kill him. But what happened to Harambe is no more wrong than what happens to all of the animals we use for food […] The post Harambe and the Chicken appeared first on (...more)

  • Veganism as a Moral Imperative
    Principle Three of the Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights is that veganism is a moral imperative: Abolitionists agree with welfarists that animal exploitation is not going to disappear “overnight” and that we need to take incremental steps—what welfarists call “baby steps”—to get to the goal of abolition.

  • The Matrix as Metaphor for Animal Advocacy
    The question I have grappled with for years now is: how can this conditioning work so well on so many of us for so long? This question is central to the film, The Matrix, which asks us to question what we’ve been taught, to separate what is illusion from what is real, what is oppression from what is freedom.

  • Does Saying Humans Are Omnivores Justify Eating Animals?
    A common objection to veganism is the statement, “Humans are omnivores.” Yet, being an omnivore neither requires us to eat animal products nor does it dismiss our moral obligation to minimize the suffering we cause other animals by way of the food choices we make. Continue reading → (...more)
