    Abstract

    In this project I present one approach for arguing that the factory farming industry acts in ways that are unethical. The focus of my argument is the factory farming industry acts unethically due to the way in which non-human animals are treated in these conditions. First, I will argue that it is morally wrong to cause unnecessary harms to sentient beings. Then, I demonstrate ways in which the factory farming industry causes unnecessary harms to sentient beings. Finally, I will arise at the conclusion that humans have moral obligations to refrain from consuming factory farmed goods.
