Two-thirds of Americans polled by the Associated Press agree with the following statement: "An animal's right to be free of suffering should be just as important as a person's right to live free of suffering." More than 50 percent of Americans believe that killing animals to make fur coats or to hunt them for sport is wrong. But these same Americans eat hamburgers, take their children to circuses and rodeos, and use products developed using animal testing. How do we justify our inconsistency?

Gary L. Francione was the first academic to teach animal rights theory in an American law school and has lectured on the topic throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. He is Distinguished Professor of Law and Nicholas deB. Katzenbach Scholar of Law and Philosophy at Rutgers University-Newark, and his books include Introduction to Animal Rightsand Animals, Property, and the Law.
