Animal Rights

nu.nl/algemeen | GroenLinks wil dierenrechten in grondwet

The Green Party has submitted a bill today for animal rights to be included in the constitution just like it is in Germany. The proposal is backed by four thousand people who signed the petition.

The Green Party wants the well being of animals added to article 21 of the constitution, which concerns the care for the environment.

If the proposal is adopted their must be well-being laws for animals, and laws on animal testing and the fauna law must be re-examined. This will have consequences for the bio-industry as well as for animal testing and hunting.
