The Animal Welfare (Sentience) Act 2022, which acknowledges the feeling nature of animal-people, has now come into law in the UK. An Animal Sentience Committee will be formed to safeguard animal-people’s well-being and ensure government policies are duly considering animal-people’s needs.
The new legislation was celebrated by the Better Deal for Animals, a partnership of 50 of the UK’s leading animal organizations, which have campaigned since 2019 for the law. Joanna Lumley, an English actress and activist, expressed her delight at the victory, saying that now “sentient animals, including beautiful sea creatures like lobsters and octopus, will be treated with greater respect and care.”
Bravo, UK, on this important new law. Many thanks, campaigners, for standing up for the lovely animal-people. In God’s precious Guidance, may all countries soon enact Vegan Law to save sentient beings from slaughterhouses and bring about a loving world.
