Dunayer's objections to Francione's highly qualified suggestion that a prohibition against confining hens to battery cages could beconsistent with animal rights theory are specious. If the exploitation of nonhuman animals is to be completely abolished, those who bring about this resultwill have necessary been informed by a consistent, well-supported theoretical framework.
