The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

emily-deschanelBones star and one of Ecorazzi’s Top 5 Vegans  of 2009 Emily Deschanel is speaking out on behalf of chimps. 

Deschanel recently wrote a letter to California congressman Rep. Henry Waxman urging him to cosponsor the Town-Reichart Great Ape Protection Act, which was introduced in a House health subcommittee that is part of the Waxman-chaired Committee on Energy and Commerce.

This legislation would phase out “invasive scientific research” on chimpanzees and also release federally owned apes to chimpanzee sanctuaries. 

In the letter, Emily writes:

“This legislation would allow about 500 chimpanzees to live their remaining years in sanctuaries. They could form bonds with other chimpanzees, bask in the sunlight, and feel the grass and the earth. That’s the least we can do for chimpanzees, our species’ closest living relatives.”

Could this chick be any cooler? I ask you that! I ASK YOU THAT!!!

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
