Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>!

WELCOME TO DAY SEVENTEEN!

 
 


Kym's advice for day seventeen:
Sentience.
This is probably the number one reason why most vegans make this lifestyle choice and why it is a morally and ethically correct way to live. Sentience is the ability to perceive and feel things. An animal is sentient if “it is capable of being aware of its surroundings, its relationships with other animals and humans, and of sensations in its own body, including pain, hunger, heat or cold.” Sentience is the ability to perceive and feel things. An animal is sentient if “it is capable of being aware of its surroundings, its relationships with other animals and humans, and of sensations in its own body, including pain, hunger, heat or cold.”

A sentient animal is “a being who has interests; that is, a being who prefers, desires, or wants.” Animals avoid suffering and seek positive experiences just as humans do. Vegans believe that humans have an ethical obligation to protect the interests of animals. Cruelty towards animals cannot be justified if we are aware of their level of cognition, communication skills and their capacity for suffering and preference for a good life. If we accept animal sentience, then cruel practices like factory farming must be considered unacceptable.

Every compassionate, caring human being should be spreading the knowledge of animal sentience to others, since so few people know of this word and its ramifications to our cruel western lifestyle.
