An Animal Rights-Protection-Abolitionist Organization
DECEMBER 1, 2009
The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages calls itself "an animal rights-protection-abolitionist organization," which I find interesting. The well being of the horses should be the ideal of every organization whose mandate is to put animal protection ideals first - especially when they ask for donations based on that mandate. I've always thought of horse-drawn carriages the way I think about greyhound racing or fur: Most people are against them, so why are they still around?
