Answer these questions
- Because utilitarianism is inclusive and as birds can clearly experience pain, most utilitarians include them in their calculations. do you agree that animal experiences ought to be included in the moral evaluation of factory farming?
- do the important human benefits of factory farming outweigh the disutility of the animal suffering?
- Birds don’t anticipate much of their suffering or impending death. neverthe- less, any human parent can fully appreciate the significance of not being able to afford dinner for her child. How should such differences enter into our utilitarian considerations? Are there other relevant differences between humans and animals that need to be considered?
- Are there any morally preferable alternatives to factory farming?
