Protect Animals' Rights!

  • by: Signe Robertson
  • recipient: The UN, any nation, any state, any organization
Dear Humans,
No one has the right to decide they are superior to someone else and rule over their life, just because they are a different species. Innocent animals don't deserve to be enslaved or abused anymore than you or your children do - In other words, they don't deserve it at all! The human rights of the UN and of every nation and state in the world should be changed so that some of the basic rights should cover a selected group of mammals: Placental mammals known to live at least ten years. These are the mammals that have most in common with humans and most easily make emotional connections with humans. If these suggested additions to the human rights can not be added in the UN or in any government, hopefully they will at least change some rules, regulations, homes and minds.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and many thanks to you who decide to give animals their deserved rights!

Did you know?
All cow's milk contains pus.
Breeding animals for food uses up lots of the fossil fuels, grain, rain forests, raw materials and water, uses lots of drugs, pesticide and petrolium and pollutes the environment.
Cows are known to babysit each other's calves. Female cows on milk farms are artificially inseminated every ten months after they are one year old, so that they will not stop producing milk. Their calves are taken away from them before they're a day old. Dairy cows - The ones you get your milk from - Are usually slaughtered at age 4 or 5 years. Male cows raised for beef have their horns and testicles cut off without pain killers.
Many vegetarians and vegans report that when they stopped eating meat, their health and well-being got much better.
Most animal products contain antibiotics, campylobacter, dioxins, E. coli and salmonella which make millions of people sick and kill thousands each year.
Pigs are believed to be smarter than both dogs and toddlers. Pigs on meat farms get their teeth cut in half and their tails cut off. The male piglets get their testicles ripped out without painkillers.
The meat you buy in stores does not come from animals that lived happy lives and were painlessly slaughtered. Animals in meat factories are abused, malnourished, mutilated alive and if they don't die from injuries, they are killed brutally.
Vegetarians are 40 per cent less likely to get cancer than non-vegetarians.
Your "ecological" meat or milk come from just the same horrible places as any other animal products.

Suggested additions to the human rights in the UN and any government that wishes to adopt them:
1. Humans and selected mammals have the right to life, liberty and security of person.
2. Humans or selected mammals shall not be held in slavery or servitude, animals should only be allowed to be kept as company or assistance if it is a harmless and joyful experience for the animal.
3. Humans or selected mammals shall not be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
4. Humans and selected mammals have the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources or each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.
5. Humans and selected mammals have the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
6. Motherhood and childhood, for humans and selected mammals are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.
