Jocelyns Moral Vision Statement on the Overall Use of Animals by Humans

My personal philosophy when it comes to interaction with, use of, and treatment of animals in society is that unnecessary pain should not be inflicted unto them. If pain is inflicted unto an animal for a purpose such as food, it should be instantaneous, unsuspected, and as non-traumatic as possible. If it is not possible at any time, the process should be postponed until it is possible. Man should seek to give farm animals a decent life, and strive to offer the animal a less painful death than what would have possibly awaited them in the wild. The overall end goal would to not eliminate the overall purposeful uses of animals, but to try and reduce the net amount of animal suffering that comes with these uses.
