What is the Principle of Equal Consideration?
What is the principle of equal consideration of moral interests? "if an animal feels pain, the pain matters as much as when a human feels pain - if the pains hurt just as much. How bad pain and suffering are does not depend on the species that experiences it. When there is moral conflict you must consider animal and human interests equally." Peter Singer.
