New Jersey Democrats Want to Give Animals Human-Styled Rights in Court

More efforts by the left to devalue human life is happening in New Jersey this year as Democrats there are seeking to give animals certain human rights in state courts.

A new bill has been introduced in Jersey by State Assemblywoman Annette Quijano that would give pets a human advocate/lawyer in court cases of abuse and other cases.

Supporters are giddy over the idea and insist that dogs need lawyers.

“Dogs need representation,” John DeCando, chief animal control officer for the city of Paterson, told PIX New York. “They need people to come forward on their behalf. They can’t speak. It would be nice to have someone pro bono come forward and represent an animal that can’t speak for themselves.”

DeCando went on to add that he does not loses his cases – meaning dogs don’t need a lawyer after all. But he continued to insist dogs need lawyers despite proving they don’t.

Why, because humans don’t get maximum punishments under the law,DeCando insisted.

“I think somebody needs to take care of these little puppies that give us love,” said pet owner Sergio Hincapie. “And there are people out there that don’t really care for them so they shouldn’t even have them.”

PIX adds:

Quijano’s bill is modeled after a Connecticut law that is the first of it’s kind, called “Desmond’s law”, named for a dog that was killed by its owner, whom did not receive jail time.

Brutally beaten, strangled and starved — Desmond’s owner admitted it, but was only sentenced to a 4-month rehabilitation program.

“Which was insignificant compared to the magnitude of the injury and pain and suffering he caused to Desmond,” commented Diane Balkin, senior staff attorney for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, which helped craft Desmond’s law.

“We have to treat animal abusers seriously, because they may well move on to harm humans,” said Balkin.

Naturally, the left-wing loons in New York are pushing the same stuff.

New York Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal will be introducing a similar bill this week.

“From divorce to abuse cases, animals are involved in all manner of court proceedings,” Assembly-member Linda B. Rosenthal said. “These advocates will help to decrease the likelihood that animals end up in cruel situations, and I look forward to working to see it become law.”
