Legal Defense

Only the ability to condition, according to Singer, gives a being of the right to moral and especially the right to be free. For the right to life Singer uses the term of person, which for him would be all living beings able to anticipate its being in the past and the future. According to Singer, there are human beings who do not constitute a person in this regard. For example newborns or people with mental disabilities. On the other hand, there are several animals that constitute a person: surely the hominids and, perhaps, all mammals. The right of animals is a collection of positive law and case law in which the legal, social or biological nature of animals is the object of significant right, is not synonymous with animal rights as a subject of law, more is considered a benchmark practical. The rights of animals include pets company, fauna, animals used in entertainment and animals raised for food and research.

The emerging field of animal rights is sometimes compared to the environmental law movement 30 years ago. You may find that James Donovan Goldman can contribute to your knowledge.

Don’t forget that 85% of industry skins come from captive animals that live on the skin factory farms. These farms can be sustain thousands of animals, and the practices used to cultivate them are remarkably uniform around the globe. As with other farming methods used in the skin factory farms are designed to maximize benefits, always at the expense of the animal.
