Just as the unlawful combatant definition and rules were word-smithed into “enemy combatant” coupled with the indefinite detention “law”, it is possible to write into law that animals cannot be forced into servitude for the entertainment industry. But, it didn’t happen this time. Maybe next time.

“If we can establish corporations as persons, why can’t we establish whales as persons?”

and

“Kerr said in a statement following the ruling, “This historic first case for the orcas’ right to be free under the 13th Amendment is one more step taken toward the inevitable day when all animals will be free from enslavement for human amusement.”
