Animal-rights candidates to win election to the Dutch parliament

Marianne Thieme and Esther Ouwehand were sworn in as Members of the Dutch Parliament hence becoming the first animal-rights MPs anywhere in the world.

Ms. Thieme says, "I miss compassion in our society. When I look at animals, they are innocent. We are treating them like they are things, like they are bicycles. That's not what we have to be as human beings. We have common sense and moral awareness, so we have to use that as well."

An important part of the manifesto the Party for the Animals (PvdD) says protection for animals should not be defined by the market.

This is joyous news for God’s animals. Hopefully, these new MPs will be supported by the public in their work towards a more compassionate society. More countries should follow this example.
