GR:  This post’s title suggest that we should care about animals is for our benefit.  But it’s more than that.  Human respect for animal rights is increasing.  Once, the only argument against raising animals for food was that eating plants instead of animals was the most economical and efficient means to feed the growing human population. Developing respect for other species has much broader significance. As Aldo Leopold and others have said, we can only fulfill our role as ethical beings if we learn to respect other species.  I believe that such respect is a sign of sapience.
