Establishing the Rights of Animals in Law and Human Consciousness
Comments by Constance Young - 25 Sep 2006

Dear Frank:

I haven't had time to go oiver your statement in depth. I plan on doing so later. One thought however. In the first paragraph, the concept of "moral rights" is too vague. I would prefer something like:

1. "Nonhuman animals are sentient, feeling beings and as such should not be deprived of their life for human purposes or subjected to pain. Nonhuman animals have some mysterious, as yet unknown, purpose in life's scheme and should be treated as "separate nation." with basic legal rights, much as humans have. Nonhuman animals are not to be used by human beings, or considered as property, and should be allowed to live according to their natures. Animals should never be subjected to human-inflicted suffering or interference.

Good show!
Connie
