The Twelve Steps of the Animal Rights Agenda
(“The Politics of Animal Liberation,” by Kim Bartlett, (wife of Merrit Clifton), editor of Animals’ Agenda, November 1987.)
1. Abolish by law all animal research.
2. Abolish by law all other types of animal testing.
3. Encourage vegetarianism for ethical, ecological, and health reasons.
4. Phase out intensive confinement livestock production.
5. Eliminate use of herbicides, pesticides, etc.
6. Transfer animal law enforcement of Department of Agriculture to another agency.
7. Eliminate commercial trapping and fur ranching.
8. Prohibit hunting, trapping and fishing for sport.
9. Urge US action to prevent destruction of rainforests and end international trade in wildlife and goods produced from exotic and/or endangered fauna or flora.
10. Discourage any further breeding of companion animals, including pedigreed or purebred dogs and cats (pet trade) Promote spay and neuter of all pets by government subsidized clinics.
11. End the use of animals in entertainment and sports, with reappraisal of zoos and aquariums.
12. Prohibit genetic manipulation of species.
…….and from the Animal Rights Law Casebook by Waisman (Loyola Law), Frasch (ALDF) and Wagman (Hastings, Stanford, UC SF School of Law) we have on pg. 69: If indeed the property status of animals were to be abolished, what would be the legal and practical effects on the commercial use of animals? What would happen to the animals themselves- should they be put in sanctuaries, sterilized or permitted to move toward extinction?
This is what they teach law students in law school animal rights, they only have one casebook. We had to buy it just to see what the hell they teach these kids. (The rest of the books are on philosophy of animals, vegan beliefs,their so called rights, the species and why they believe they (animals) are entitled.)

“Saying that human concerns outweigh animal concerns is just more bullshit.”
(Animal rights rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002)
“If the death of one rat cured all diseases, it wouldn’t make any difference to me.” (As quoted in “Biting Back,” Los Angeles Times, April 12, 1990, p. E12)
Wayne Pacelle (then) Senior Vice President, Humane Society of the United States
“We have no problem (HSUS)with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of selective breeding. One generation and out.”
(Animal People, May 1993)
J.P. Goodwin, Humane Society of the United States, former Executive Director of the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade
“My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture.”
(As quoted on AR-Views, an animal rights Internet discussion group in 1996)
Ingrid Newkirk, Founder, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA)
“Animal liberationists do not separate out the human animal, so there is no basis for saying that a human being has special rights. A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy. They’re all mammals.”
(Vogue, September 1989)
On animal rights arson and violence: “Would I rather the research lab that tests on animals is reduced to a bunch of cinders? Yes.”
(New York Daily News, Dec. 12, 1997)
On dog breeding and pet ownership: “Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought on by human manipulation. We would no longer allow breeding. As the surplus of cats and dogs declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship-enjoyment at a distance.”
(Harper’s Magazine, August 1988)
