Thread: PETA Sues SeaWorld for Violating Orcas' Constitutional Rights

  1. #1

    PETA Sues SeaWorld for Violating Orcas' Constitutional Rights

    In a groundbreaking move for animals, PETA, with the help of three marine-mammal experts and two former orca trainers, will file a landmark lawsuit tomorrow asking a federal court to declare that five wild-caught orcas forced to perform at SeaWorld are being held as slaves in violation of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    The 13th Amendment prohibits the condition of slavery, without reference to "person" or any particular class of victims. PETA's general counsel, Jeffrey Kerr, stated, "Slavery does not depend on the species of the slave any more than it depends on gender, race, or religion."

    I wonder how descendants of people who were actual slaves in the 1600-1800s feel about this

    The 13th Amendment uses the word "party" and not "person."

    Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.[2]

    Yep...I detest PETA people after having known several personally. They would rather have animals die to prove one of their many irrational points.

    Go Forward With Courage

    When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
    when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
    So long as mists envelop you, be still;
    be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
    -- as it surely will.
    Then act with courage.

    The constitution was an agreement between individuals with a formed government. Party in that context means group of individual people.

    Probably about the same as they did when PETA had a 2005 traveling campaign comparing animals to black slaves... this was after they compared slaughterhouses to the Holocaust.



    "Child labor, human slavery, and the oppression of women all came to be opposed by our society, thanks to the passion and hard work of human rights activists," said PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk.

    "We hope that PETA's display will help people see that nonhuman animals suffer today just as humans once did, and that we can all make small changes in our lives to help make animal oppression a thing of the past," she said.

    Yes, do that! I'm interested in what their official position is if they have one, and if they'll even reply to you. I assume nearly all oppose the notion that a fetus has rights.

    Guess what Orcas eat in the wild? OTHER WHALES.

    I read a book called The New Holy Wars which argues that environmentalism is based more on a Judeo-Christian view of nature than a Darwinian one. I think the same applies to these $#@!ing herbivore herd animals.

    I'd be sure to preface it with, "I know you believe a pregnant woman has rights over her own body, but what about the fetus inside of her body? Does it have less rights than an orca, or should the Constitution not protect the rights of a live fetus?"

    Should at least get them thinking.

    Ya they go out in packs and hunt giant whales. It's nuts. I guess they eat a lot of seals, though, as well. Too many damn seals out there, they are over-populated. Of course that is because it is illegal to hunt seals.

    Case seems silly, but overall PETA never really bothered me.

    Coming up, domestic animals of all kinds, and children who dislike being asked to take out the trash.

    Ugh.

    I may not agree with what Sea World is doing with animals, but PETA is just stupid and crazy.
