In what way is Peter Singer’s argument in “All Animals are Equal” utilitarian? It is based on an absolute prohibition on all forms of killing. It is based on the obligation to maximize happiness and minimize suffering, no matter who or what is experiencing it. It is based on the inherent superiority of animals to humans. It is based on the idea that animals were created to be useful to humans

On the utilitarian principles Singer plausibly applied to this case, any action becomes a duty if it will prevent more pain than it causes or cause more happiness than it prevents.
