When I was little, my parents would always ask me what I was going to ask Santa to bring me on Christmas. Every year my answer always seemed to be the same: “I want Santa to bring me baby goats, baby rabbits, baby lambs, baby pigs and baby cows!”

A look at animal rights vs. animal welfare.
I’ve never met a person who thought animal abuse was ok. Even though they don’t have the range of emotions that humans do, they still feel, and most people would agree that animals should be treated with love and respect. Unfortunately, for all the good people in the world who believe that animals shouldn’t be abused, it still happens. And when it does, it brings up a lot of emotions from a lot of different people. Then it brings up a whole new argument. Animal rights versus animal welfare, which should you believe? Do you even know the difference? Though the wording is only slightly different, the difference in beliefs is huge. And what each group stands for is even bigger.
