Wonder if she eats meat. She sounds much more like an animal welfarist that an "animal rights" person. She believes in having pets or companion animals which according to the "animal rights" nuts is the same as human slavery and they will firebomb your house to prove their point. I don't think Ms. Day endorses that kind of thing. Of course the ARAs will try to blur the very distinct line between animal welfare and "animal rights" when there is publicity to be had such as a celebrity like Ms. Day.

BTW, For the uninformed and those who haven't given it much thought, there is a big difference between animal welfare and "animal rights".

Animal welfare = People who truly care about animals and try to help improve their lot in this world.

"Animal rights" = People who couldn't care less about animals and are interested in controlling the lives and diets of others, willing to use terrorism and extortion to force their insane philosophy on others. They are willing to kill people to achieve the Utopian "total animal liberation" (a thing any sane mind knows is physically and realistically impossible) which they demand.

I think the author of that article did not understand that there is a distinction between "animal rights" and "animal welfare."

Ms. Day is a Christian Scientist I do believe. Don't think she'd be supporting violence...

Bingo! The ARAs are all about using violence to get their way. The animal welfare folks recognize that animals do not and can not have rights as humans do. They also recognize that humans have a responsibility to treat animals in a reasonable and humane manner. Big difference.
