Spain Gives Human Rights to Animals

Animals are people too. At least they are in the traditional home of the bullfight:

Domestic animals will be considered “living beings” under Spanish law instead of mere objects as has been the case until now.

This will mean that dogs or cats must be considered in the same way as children in divorce hearings or when inheritance or debts cases have to be settled by the courts.

Do not die in debt in Spain. Your dog will be left to pay it off.

Shared custody of the pet will be an option open to judges in divorce hearings… [M]istreatment of pets will also be regarded as a crime as if the owner had abused another person.

If you find a stray animal, your legal obligations will be the same as if you had found a lost child.

As with most lunacy, this has been imposed by leftists:

The pet law change was introduced by the Socialists and the far-left Unidas Podemos party and was backed by all other parties, except the far-right Vox party.

In European politics, “far right” means “not far left.”

Most will agree that mistreating animals is bad. But conflating animals with humans is worse. The devaluation of human life is inherent to leftist politics and leads to catastrophic consequences.
