Many people claim ableism if a vegan is against the use of service animals, forgetting that breeding a species of lower IQ than us to be servile and then expecting them to “work” for us is what is truly ableist.⁠ ⁠ Seeing as dogs, for example, cannot give MEANINGFUL consent or sign any contractual agreement to work a specific job, we stand firmly against the idea that it can be moral to breed dogs—or even lead dogs already in existence—into a life of servitude.⁠ ⁠ Speciesists often tell us, “Animals don’t have rights because they don’t have duties” (that is, they do not do jury service, pay taxes, vote, and so forth), yet these same people expect animals to WORK for us?! This is the epitome of human entitlement, of speciesism, and of ableism.⁠ ⁠ As an unapologetic, abolitionist, VEGAN organisation, we make NO APOLOGIES for what we have said with regard to anything on animal use, and we will continue to demand an end to all industries that use animals, regardless of treatment.⁠ ⁠ The clue is in the name: SERVICE animals. That should tell you everything you need to know about why we, as abolitionist vegans, consider this mantra exploitative and unjust. And if you are vegan, then you should, too.⁠ ⁠ #animals #serviceanimals #animalrights #vegan #vegansofIG
