The Animal Bill of Rights is a petition sponsored by the Animal Legal Defense Fund that protects animals from unnecessary suffering caused by humans. The Bill of Rights provides basic rights to laboratory animals, farm animals, companion animals and wildlife. It enumerates the right for animals to be free from cruel and unnecessary experiments. The bill proposes animals should be in an environment which satisfies their basic physical and psychological needs. By signing the Bill of Rights, we agree that animals, like all sentient beings, are entitled to basic legal rights in our society. I agree with the idea of creating a Bill of Rights for animals because humans share similar characteristics with animals, thus we have a moral obligation to
Not all animals need rights just the ones that are more associated with human life. For example, flies, cockroaches, mosquitoes, etc. won't need them because they are little insects that just carry bacteria and other types of diseases. Animals like whales in the film blackfish need rights because it shows how frustrated they get with the small space that they have to live in their whole lives. Giving rights to whales and other animals like dogs and cats etc. won't affect much the human culture because it's just going to give them a little more protection against human abuse towards
Should animals really have their own bill of rights? Are animals really that much of human like that they should have their own bill of rights? There is a slippery slope to those questions most people think twice on what they say because there are pros and cons to giving animals rights. Animals can not even speak to say what they want or what they do not want. Animal bill of rights is basically protection of cruelty and not treating animals wrong.
It is basically survival of the fittest. Giving animal’s rights should be necessary only if they are being abused. For example, forcing dogs to fight other dogs till one is dead. If the animals are killed for our basic human needs than it should not be wrong. I agree with Bob Stevens in his letter to Rifkins when he mentions the fact that pigs would get toys even though there are human beings in the world who do not have such things.
In the Constitution of the United States of America there are a set of rights for citizens called the bill of rights but should animals be able to have their own bill of rights? The Bill of Rights are rights given to citizens of the United states of America. Animal Bill of Rights are rights for animals who can not speak for themselves. Only some animals should be given some rights.
Animal captivity is one of the biggest controversial arguments of today. Many people are against it and people do not see a real problem with animal captivity. This argument has been going on for decades. There are multiple examples of animal captivity facilities, such as, zoos, aquariums, laboratories, and the circus. Zoos, aquariums, and the circus may not seem that bad only because it is entertainment to the public. Buying tickets, stuffed animals, shirts, food, drinks to watch a couple animals do some tricks does not seem that bad does it? Not at all, but the real question is what is really going on behind the scenes of these animals in these places.
I agree with this statement just because I feel like every animal was put on earth to serve a purpose. It isn’t fair that people are murdering animals just because they don’t want them on their property. Every animal adds to the diversity in this world and it isn’t fair for humans to decide to murder them whenever they
Many of us can have different opinions on what animal rights mean and what it is. We can have two sides on it, one is where we should stop the cruelty and stop many factories from brutalizing the animals they have, and another side where we could just don’t do anything and leave them be and accept the fact that we eat them. I know if someone can stop any industries it’s us because we have the mindset to do it and accomplish it, carpe diem. Lastly, we should have animal rights with some limitations and taking some things under
We are not alone on this Earth. We, humans, have animals by our side. We share this inhabitable planet together with animals, and they should have same right as we do on this beautiful planet. Animals are pure instinctual living creatures who never think before following their instincts. They won’t think otherwise before killing a person.
Teresa Platt is an executive director for the Fur Commission U.S.A. division which works on behalf of mink farmers and furriers. The Fur Commission U.S.A represents over 600 mink and fox farming families in nearly 31 states. Throughout the article “Radical Animal Rights Groups Harm Society,” Platt describes to the reader how several animal rights and environmental groups such as the Animal Liberation Front, or the ALF, and the Earth Liberation Front, or the ELF, discriminate against honest farmers. She also claims that radical environmentalists vandalize mink and dairy farmers with the assumption that people can live without misusing animals. Lastly, she maintains that people have always depended on animal products such as food and clothing for survival. Through the article, Platt hopes to inform the reader on what certain environmental groups are doing to farmers and hopes that through this knowledge, the abuse will be stopped.
A life is a life, i think that every living organisms on this planet that are breathing are important and we all should treat others with respect and with love. Animals are like us, not physically, but they can feel pain and lonely when we mistreated them in some ways. I believe humanity has the ethical obligation to change their behavior towards animals. In the article, “ A change of Hearts on Animals” written by Jeremy Rifkin stated some of his key points that humans should focuses more on animals’ feelings.
As a society there should be a continuation of proceeding to develop new laws. Animals have rights that are not being protected or considered when they are not given the chance to live without suffering or harm. Additionally animal rights are violated when they are used as products for experimentation. Animal experimentations
Moreover, animals are used to develop medical treatments, check the safety of any products before people can use it and in science education. Therefore, without using animals in the medical and scientific studies the products and all the medicine would be based on theory only. Furthermore, people will use something that may cause serious damages to them. Animal testing has provided many
