Chris Foster is a professor of philosophy at Utah Valley University and a long time advocate for animal rights and a member of the LDS church. Chris believes that from a logical perspective, killing animals causes them harm, and it is morally wrong to cause something harm unless the benefits outweigh the harm caused. He feels that raising animals for food causes more harm than benefits, and therefore killing and eating animals is morally wrong.
