Establishing the Rights of Animals in Law and Human Consciousness
Comments by David Cantor - 26 Sep 2006

Dear Frank & Mary,

Glancing at comments received at the outset, I'd say the 12 Steps is a pretty good and timely idea.

I can't keep up with responses in detail, but they may be of particular interest if it ever seems necessary to revise the 12 Steps. So far, I don't see anything I would change. People will always have their opinions about things like this, but so far I think the doc. is making the impression it was intended to make.

It doesn't have any official authority, and people will advocate for animals as they see fit as always, but your response to the item about denigrating welfare is right on target: People will do for the animals as they think best in accordance with their feelings and abilities, but that is no reason for people who want the animals to have rights not to pursue a strategy suited to that goal and therefore avoid strategies that reinforce the no-rights status quo.

Nice job!

David
