    Animal's Have Rights Too

    In our religion class one day we had to write out all these things about social justice and such and I wrote down how it was injustice to squash a spider in your home. (I have a fascination with creepy things) Then we got into this whole debate on animal rights. The spider was...

    I know that someone needs to speak up on behalf of the animals that aren't able to speak for themselves...at least, not in the language that rules this country.  There are too many things going on against animals that someone needs to take action.  I want to be (and am...

    My Cats

    My cats will come up to me and look me right in the eye and start talking to me about something. Don't know cat talk, so I don't know what they are trying to say. But I talk back to them and the "conversation" just keeps going. This is proof to me (maybe not to others, but to...

    I don't think my advocation of animal rights

    goes too far, seeing as many animals simply lack high cognitive function. But on a fundamental level, all animals have the right to life.

    Take Responsibility - Even If They Don't Belong to You

    Animal Welfare

    A friend of mine recently sent me a petition to sign about a US state allowing dog breeders to increase the amount of animals they are allowed to breed from 25 to 100. ( I assume per season??) The problem they foresee with this is people turning their attention away from...

    I love all kinds of animals, since I was a kid, thanks to my Mom. She taught me to respect them, my favorite being cats, and am saddened and outraged when I read in the paper how some jerk abused a poor, defenseless animal.The punishment should be the same as what they did to the...

    What Keeps You Going?

    This subject has probably been discussed, but I think it's something that's very important to remember. Believing in animal rights, to whatever degree that you do, there will always be harsh criticism. You can't convince everyone, nor is everyone willing to listen. And sometimes...

    Why Do We Think We're Better?

    So why do humans think we are a superior species? because we communicate verbally (while animals do so non-verbally) or because of our intelligence (that gives us machine guns and nuclear weapons)? or because we hunt for sport (pretty self explanitory)? Someone help me understand...

    Equal Legal and Justice Rights For Animals With Unconditional Love

    Animals such as dogs and cats should have equal rights and I mean mainly in justice and legal rights. Those who murder or torture them should get death penalty in a slow and painful way identical to the way they committed the injustice. They have feelings and emotions too and yet...
