OK, here is a personal issue. I have a dog that has cancer. As the cancer progresses she will be in increasing pain to the point where it becomes excruciating.
Humans have life/death decisions over animals...which means I can euthanize her without consequence. My question is if and when?
This is not a small question of ethics. It applies to all animals that are other than human.
From a Christian perspective, I'm very interested in your discussion. Our religion does not address other species. Still, does my dog have a right to her life that precludes intervention from me? What, from a specifically Christian perspective, is my obligation to her? Please extrapolate to animals generally.
For non-Christians, I want to know what you would do and why.
