Excellent New Essay by Karen Davis, United Poultry Concerns

Read this when you have some time; brilliantly done, not only because of its perspective on Peter Singer, but also as a reminder that it’s all too easy to slide down terrifying slopes. Absolutely worth reading.

  • I agree. Absolutely worth reading.

    In fact, after doing so, I sent a thank-you to Karen.

    In my email, I mentioned to Karen that she might want to respond to this book review of “Blood, Bones & Butter”: http://www.csmonitor.com/Books/chapter-and-verse/2011/0404/Blood-Bones-and-Butter

    Miriam, perhaps you’ll write a comment under the review? It’s written by a Monitor news editor, who also heads up its new online food blog, “Stir It Up” (the link is at the bottom of the review).

    Just scroll all the way to end of the article, below the Facebook, etc., icons, and you’ll find two links: “View Reader Comments” and “Comment On This Story”

    You’re so eloquent, I feel you would help readers understand why this book is NOT in anyone’s best interests to read.

  • Hi there! Odd timing as I am currently tackling Animal Liberation. This comes after reading animal-rights theories from (of course), Karen Davis, Tom Regan, Gary Francione, Steve Best, and other contemporaries… It has been difficult “arguing” with the author as I read AL. Thanks for this link to Karen Davis’s rebuttal. Her clarity has made the labor manageable!

    Hello SBH CLAY, It’s difficult leaving a comment on a review of a book I haven’t read… So my comment was mainly focused on why I’d never read such a “blood and bones” cook-book. I’m always saddened to see such publications glorify the wrong and unacceptable. It’s even sadder still when they come from places that ought to know more about kindness (and health). :(
