Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Animals As Property

By Professor Gary L.Francione

Professor Francione argues that the property status of animals renders meaningless animal welfare laws that prohibit the infliction of “unecessary” suffering and require the “humane” treatment of nonhumans. Professor Francione’s book, Animals, Property, and the Law (Temple University Press, 1995), provided the first legal analysis of the property status of animals and was described by Tom Regan as a “work of unquestionable historic importance.”

I think this is the fundamental issue. As long as animals are property, they will never have any rights.

I agree with you Ana. Also, there is something very sinister, depraved and immoral when man considers 'life' to be 'property'.

Thank you for your comment.
