  Animal rights - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Animal rights is the concept that all or some animals are entitled to possess their own lives; that they are deserving of, or already possess, certain moral rights; and that some basic rights for animals ought to be enshrined in law.
He argues that, because the moral rights of humans are based on their possession of certain cognitive abilities, and because these abilities are also possessed by at least some non-human animals, such animals must have the same moral rights as humans.
Switzerland passed legislation in 1992 to recognize animals as beings, rather than things, and the protection of animals was enshrined in the German constitution in 2002, when its upper house of parliament voted to add the words "and animals" to the clause in the constitution obliging the state to protect the "natural foundations of life...

 Animal liberation movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The animal liberation movement or animal rights movement, also sometimes called the animal personhood movement, is the worldwide movement of individual activists, academics, lawyers, campaigns, and organized groups who oppose or engage in direct action against, the use of non-human animals in research, as food, as clothing, or as entertainment.
Animal rights activists argue that animals appear to have value in law only in relation to their usefulness or benefit to their owners, and are awarded no intrinsic value whatsoever.
In 2002, rights for non-human animals were enshrined in the German constitution when the words "and animals" were added to the clause obliging the state to respect and protect the dignity of human beings.

 The universal declaration of animal rights
The ascription of moral and legal rights to animals, and their enshrinement in a United Nations Declaration of Animal Rights is the logical and inevitable progression of this principle.
Animals may not be able to express their interests in our language, or explicitly claim their rights from us, but the existence of their interests is beyond question.
Animals have been denied rights not because of any meaningful or relevant distinction between human and non-human, but for the same reason that human beings have been and continue to be denied rights: because ascribing them rights threatens the freedom of those in power.

 10 Reasons for Animal Rights and Their Explanation
The other animals humans eat, use in science, hunt, trap, and exploit in a variety of ways, have a life of their own that is of importance to them apart from their utility to us.
But not the philosophy of animal rights, whose highest principle is that of justice: No one has a right to benefit as a result of violating another's rights, whether that "other" is a human being or some other animal.
When the philosophy of animal rights triumphs, however, and people become vegetarians, we need not fear that there will be billions of cows and pigs grazing in the middle of our cities or in our living rooms.

 Animal Rights Watch Maintained by Derek Coons   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Animal rights means recognizing that animals are living sentient creatures with interests of their own, not objects to be exploited by humans.
It means that animals' interests should be respected, and that the enslaving, eating, wearing, and torturing of animals by humans is wrong.
This results in hellish lives for animals who have to deal with severe confinement, mutilations done with no anesthesia (such as debeaking, castration, and tail docking), horrible living conditions, disease, shipping in extreme temperatures, and finally their own execution at the slaughterhouse.
