Philosophy 2

To refute Mcmahan’s argument we must first establish the premises behind it. Mcmahan basically states that animal suffer when they are killed, animal suffering is like human suffering, we intervene when humans suffering, therefore animal suffering is bad and we should stop all animal suffering, and to stop all animal suffering means the desire of the extinction of all carnivorous species.
