The Humane Education Coalition (HEAC), the group behind the Animal Liberation Act, is proud to announce that its newest law will include the following new provisions: 1.
Animals should be treated humanely by everyone regardless of their race, sex, religion, disability, or age.
No one should be subjected to cruel, unnecessary or excessive punishment for any crime, regardless of the nature of the crime.
A person should not be required to provide an animal with food or water or suffer the consequences.
No person, organization, or company should be responsible for any injury to animals.
People should not use animals in research and education or in any way for commercial purposes.
Animal cruelty will be a criminal offense and the law should not prohibit a person from making reasonable inquiries to determine whether an animal has suffered cruelty, such as by taking photographs of the animal and/or conducting tests to determine the animal’s age, condition, health or welfare.
Any person who knowingly violates any of the provisions of this act or who willfully causes, aids, abets, condones, or otherwise condones animal cruelty will face a civil penalty of $10,000 and up to three years in prison.
This new law is intended to protect animals and to help bring about a better world.
HEAC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with more than 2 million members, many of whom are people of color.
They focus on protecting animals and protecting the environment.
