   schema:description "This book brings together analyses in the fields of value theory, normative and applied ethics on the issue of killing animals. It addresses a number of questions: Can painless killing harm or benefit an animal and, if so, why and under what conditions? "Can coming into existence harm or benefit an animal? Is killing animals morally acceptable? Should animals have the legal right to life? In addressing these questions, the animal rights and animal welfare positions are articulated and debated by some of the foremost thinkers on these issues, with a distinction made between rights-based and utilitarian approaches. The question of animal suffering is addressed, as is the morality of killing animals. Throughout the book, these theoretical considerations are related to current practices in which animals are created and killed." ;
