This paper discusses the moral implications of harming someone – in this case primarily non-human beings – in order to provide benefits for others, primarily human beings. It makes the central argument that human beings, by their very nature as potentially compassionate and rational beings, cannot continue to support activities which cause harm to others, regardless of species and whether benefits would be derived.
