Provide a 9 pages analysis while answering the following question: The Issue of Wearing Animal Fur. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. In Canada the seal is under threat due to its fur and the use of animal fur is based on fashion. This brings us to the question. is wearing animal fur morally acceptable or morally wrong? In this paper, I will argue that wearing animal fur is morally wrong as it is a violation of animal rights. Secondly, in contemporary society, there are many alternatives that can be used instead such as faux fur without subjecting animals to inhumane conditions. Thirdly, the purpose for which the animals are killed is not ethically justifiable as it is not a necessity but a luxury.

Peter Singer in his book the Animal Liberation argues that “All animals are equal” (Hinderer, 1992, p. 229. Singer, 1990). This is the principle under which Singer basis his argument against the killing of animals for any purpose whatsoever and I do agree with him. There are many oppressed groups in the society that continuously crave their freedom such as women, blacks and people of color, Aboriginals and other marginalized groups. Racism and sexism are abhorred as they involve exploitation of one group by another (the dominant group) due to their color or condition. This is morally wrong as all men were created equal and have inalienable rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Just like the women liberation movement or black liberation movements fought against prejudice and discrimination based on the basic moral principle of equality, so do animals as an oppressed group deserve. If we stick to the evolution story, men originated from animals like apes hence are also animals. The only thing that distinguishes men from animals according to philosophers like Jean Jacques Rousseau, John Locke and Thomas Hobbes is that they can think or are intelligent (Loptson, 1998, pp 173-176). When Singer says that ‘all animals are equal’ he thus means that men as well as animals should be treated equally without discrimination as just like men have rights and interests.
