Tom Regan on the Animal-Rights Movement

In issuing its condemnation of established cultural practices, the rights view is not antibusiness, not antifreedom of the individual, not antiscience, not antihuman. It is simply projustice, insisting only that the scope of justice be seen to include respect for the rights of animals.

They will simply scurry off to their think tanks and Fox News. Just because McCain and Palin lost this time around doesn't mean we can let our guard down.
