3/30/10: Animal Rights, Human Wrongs

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Philosopher Tom Regan has spent his career at the forefront of the animal rights movement. It's a role he says he would have never taken on if he hadn't first been a human rights advocate. It was during the Vietnam War when he began researching non-violence, and Regan says it was Gandhi's writings that challenged him to think about the "invisible violence" in his own life. Regan is in Utah, and Tuesday, he joins Doug to make the case for our ethical duty to animals.

  • This Thursday, April 1, at 1:00 p.m., Tom Regan will give the keynote address at Utah Valley University's 2010 Environmental Ethics Symposium. For details on that and a full schedule of events, click here
