Are you using the term karma as a secular colloquialism or speaking formally in a religious/spiritual sense in the context of reincarnation?

If the former I would assume the method of production would be the locus of a moral discussion. If the latter than intention would weigh in more heavily.

Either way I’d recommend replacing the term humane with compassionate. Same meaning less the anthropocentric connotation, which seems more in the spirit of discussing inter species relationships with this audience.

"Humane" has a long story of being used in the context of alleviating suffering, human or not. The Royal Humane Society was founded i 1774.

I'm not saying that the word choice debate isn't to be had, but just that using "humane" in this context is pretty common.

Not trying to debate or argue the common usage. Just trying to address the humanist aspect in this context being unnecessary so why not use an equally appropriate word without the baggage.
