Liberty and Justice for All Animals In America sign now

To Mr. President Obama,

We, the undersigned, are urging the American Government to enact immediately into law the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF ANIMAL RIGHTS, which was enacted by the United Kingdom in 1977. American is known as the land of the free, we feel this should apply to all living beings in America. The people of the world want to see liberty and justice for all animals in America.


"The asertition of moral and legal rights to animals, and their enshrinement in a United Nations Declaration of Animal Rights is a logical and also an inevitable progression of ethical thinking."

The text of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF ANIMAL RIGHTS has been adopted by the International League of Animal Rights and Affiliated National Leagues in the course of an International Meeting on Animal Rights which took place in London from September 21st through the 23rd in 1977.

Preamble

Considering
that Life is one, all living beings having a common origin and having diversified in the course of the evolution of the species;

Considering
that all living beings possess natural rights, and that any animal with a nervous system has specific rights;

Considering
that the contempt for, and even the simple ignorance of these natural rights cause serious damage to nature and led man to commit crimes against animals;

Considering
that the coexistence of species implies a recognition by the human species of the right of other animal species to live;

Considering
that the respect of humans for animals is inseparable from the respect of man for another man.

IT IS HEREBY PROCLAIMED:

Article 1
All animals are born equal and they have the same rights to existence.

Article 2
a) Every animal has the right to be respected.
b) Man, like the animal species, cannot assume the right to exterminate other animals or to exploit them, thereby violating this right. He should use his conscience for the service of the animals.

Article 3
a) No animal should be submitted to bad treatment or cruel
actions.
b) If the death of an animal is necessary, this should be sudden and without fear or pain.

Article 4
a) All animals belonging to a wild species have the right to live free in their natural environment, and have the right to reproduce.
b) Each deprivation of freedom, even for educational purposes, is in
opposition to this right.

Article 5
a) Every animal that usually lives in a domestic environment must live and grow to a rhythm natural to his species.
b) Any change to this rhythm and conditions dictated by man for mercantile purpose, is a contradiction of this law.

Article 6

b)Animal exhibitions and shows that use animals are incompatible with an animals dignity.

Article 11
Every action that causes the unnecessary death of an animal, is cruel which is a crime against life.
