Tom Regan says that we all have equal inherent value by virtue of being ‘experiencing subjects of a life’. What does it mean to be an ‘experiencing subject of a life’? Do you think that being the subject of a life means that one has equal inherent value? Does it follow from that view that animals should be given rights to life and freedom?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Subject of a Life means that each animal is a unique life story, just as the story of your life is peculiar to you and no one else.

Being a subject of a life doesn't mean that one has equal inherent value, we are unique from one person to the other.

It does not follow that all animals should be given the rights to freedom  and life since others have to be slaughtered for meat.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
