Really? ARs Back Then? What Year?

If you read this article, it’s very obviously a crafted for AR article done supposedly by this writer who is from Sacramento. Obviously she is not young. And we all know when ARs started denigrating circuses. and it surely was NOT in the early 60’s.

Introduction to Animal Rights: Your Child or the Dog?

Introduction to Animal Rights: Your Child or the Dog?

Two-thirds of Americans polled by the “Associated Press” agree with the following statement: “An animal’s right to live free of suffering should be just as important as a person’s right to live free of suffering.” More than 50 percent of Americans believe that it is wrong to kill animals to make fur coats or to hunt them for sport. But these same Americans eat hamburgers, take their children to circuses and rodeos, and use products developed with animal testing. How do we justify our inconsistency? In this easy-to-read introduction, animal rights advocate Gary Francione looks at our conventional moral thinking about animals. Using examples, analogies, and thought-experiments, he reveals the dramatic inconsistency between what we say we believe about animals and how we actually treat them. “Introduction to Animal Rights: Your Child or the Dog?” provides a guidebook to examining our social and personal ethical beliefs. It takes us through concepts of property and equal consideration to arrive at the basic contention of animal rights: that everyone – human and non-human – has the right not to be treated as a means to an end.

In other words as the ARs would have it, animals should NOT be property. There is no other way that ARs believe. All elimination of sales of animals, animal related products, etc. are all based on the belief that animals should NOT be property. Obviously comparing your dog to a child spells that out for ARs. Your child is equal to a dog, rat, pig, insect. Hello Ingrid.
