Let’s assume that Singer is correct about the claim that those who experience pain and pleasure are sufficient for moral consideration. If this is correct, then it permits that we give no moral consideration to anyone who is in a coma or paralyzed. They can’t experience any pain or pleasure because of their medical condition, so they are of no moral consideration. This is unreasonable and unacceptable to give no consideration to people in comas or paralysis and no one would follow this. Therefore, Singer’s claim must be false.
