Colorado Libs in Boulder County Want to Give Legal Rights to Plants and Animals


Liberals fight tooth and nail against fetal homicide laws, such as Laci and Conner’s Law, because holding people responsible for acts that cause the death of an unborn child are a little too close to acknowledging that an unborn child is actually a human being. But legal rights for plants and animals? Sign them up!

Environmental activists and wildlife preservation advocates are a step closer to getting a “rights of nature” concept written into the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan.

Boulder County Planning Commission members agreed Wednesday night on a thus-far-unofficial comprehensive plan addition declaring county government’s responsibility to support the continued existence of all of the county’s “naturally occurring ecosystems and their native species populations.”

That statement, based on a proposal submitted by the Audubon Society of Boulder County, might not go far enough to satisfy some of the people who have been pushing for more than a year to have Boulder County declare that plants and animals have certain legal rights.

… It may still go too far, though, for some foes of the “rights of nature” movement, including people who warn that writing such a policy into an official government document would give plants and wildlife the same legal standing as human beings.

Hey, maybe someone that mows grass, or chops up some vegetables for a salad, could be charged with murder! Meanwhile, women can keep killing their unborn children without libs batting an eye. It’s like a liberal dream.
