In other words, we have a responsibility not to cause harm to animals such as eating them, as they have rights just like humans. However, Carl Cohen claims that “[t]here is no obligation to eat meat….but neither is there any obligation to refrain from doing so.” He believes that since animals lack the capability for moral judge\ment they do not have rights that humans have, thus have no right to life.
