Forty years ago, the suggestion that nonhuman animals have moral rights—indeed, many of the same rights as human beings—would have been met with incredulous stares, if not outright ridicule. Fast forward to the present. A recent Gallup poll (conducted May 6-10, 2015) found that 32% of Americans believe that "animals deserve the exact same rights as people to be free from harm and exploitation," while only 3% of Americans feel that animals don't need much protection from harm and exploitation "since they are just animals." Other results from this Gallup poll can be found here. If you are among the growing number of Americans who think that animals deserve the same moral rights as people, you can help promote their rights by refusing to purchase products from industries that harm and exploit animals.
