I stand with Rifkin, Braithwaite, and Yong on how animals need a “Bill of Rights” due to the fact that we humans, specifically the scientists, have been treating animals in an inhumane way and considering them as an object to help achieve many goals.

First of all, the article “Animal Bill of Rights” states how animal issues are still a major, critical problem in our society.

Signing the animal bill of rights would make a huge impact on the animals since the second reason in the bill promise that animals will be promulgate standards to govern the humane handling, care, treatment, and transportation of animals and practices in experimental procedures to ensure that animal pain and distress are minimized
