A common argument used by the West Indian Lobby was that the economically advantages outweighed any concerns, as shown by the words of Mr Snelgrave:

Although to traffic in human creatures may at first seem barbarous, inhuman, and unnatural; yet the traders in this have much to plead in their own excuse, namely the advantage of it. In a word, from this trade come benefits, far outweighing all, either real or pretended, mischiefs and inconveniences.
