What. A. Day. These measures send a strong and clear statement to the world that New Yorkers reject the notion that animals are mere property, but rather sentient beings whose capacity for suffering affords them the right to legal protection from cruelty.
This package represents far more than just a few laws that protect horses, ducks, and pigeons from abuse. It is irrefutable evidence of our moral progress as New Yorkers.
Thank you to all the #activists and organizations that made this possible. Thank you to the @nyccouncil for voting YES! .
Hopefully NYC will soon pass Into 1476: A ban on the sale of fur apparel (@menchaca ) 💖🐩🐺🐅🐑🦊🦁🐯🐱🐇💖 #compassionisntextreme #compassionoverfashion #untileverycageisempty #notours #peace #love #compassion #respectlife #animals #animallovers #furfreeNYC - 3 months ago
