“Veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything; it is about gaining the peace within yourself that comes from embracing nonviolence and refusing to participate in the exploitation of the vulnerable.” - Gary L. Francione
Going vegan is simple. If you are going vegan, that means you are discontinuing consuming animal products including what you eat, wear, and use.
Simple!! because we all care about non violence, Justice and Freedom.
Whether we love animals or not, we all believe that it is wrong to inflict unnecessary suffering and death on animals. For example: You would consider it wrong if someone burned a dog just for the sake of fun. Which means you think that it is wrong to cause suffering to the dog when it was absolutely unnecessary. But 99.9% of all animal use is either for pleasure (taste), amusement(fun) or convenience; which cannot be considered a necessity.
Abolitionism within animal rights theory is the idea that focusing on animal welfare reform not only fails to challenge animal suffering, but may prolong it by making the exercise of property rights over animals appear acceptable. The abolitionists' objective is to secure a moral and legalparadigm shift, whereby animals are no longer regarded as things to be owned and used.
We abolitionists believe that every sentient being, whether human or nonhuman, has the right not to be used as a mere thing—not to be treated like a piece of property. Accordingly, we believe that we ought to abolish the use of nonhuman animals by humans. This means that we must collectively and individually stop using animals for food, clothing, entertainment, medical experimentation, and all other such purposes. According to abolitionism, we must eradicate nonhuman animals’ status as pieces of legal property and we must respect animals as individuals.
