Richard Dawkins on Cows and Humans
This is from the current TIME magazine cover article, which consists of a debate between Frances Collins and Richard Dawkins. After Dawkins compares the morality of killing human embryos to harvest stem cells with the morality of killing cows for meat, there is this exchange:
Collins: Do humans have a different moral significance than cows in general?
Dawkins: Humans have more moral responsibility perhaps, because they are capable of reasoning.
