Animal Rights More Mainstream

Here are some interesting facts about recent animal rights gains in the world:

1) An animal rights ballot initiative that will ban factory farms from keeping calves, pregnant hogs or egg-laying hens in tiny pens or cages in which they can’t stretch out or turn around, has been approved in California, by a large 2-1 majority.

2) Spain is moving to grant basic legal rights to apes.

3) Europe is scheduled to phase out bare wire cages for egg production by 2012.

You can read a good article in the New York Times on these issues, from which I have taken these facts, by clicking  here.
