Most of the public lands in the West, and especially the
Southwest, are what you might call cow burnt. Almost
anywhere and everywhere you go in the American West you
find hordes of [cows].... They are a pest and a plague. They
pollute our springs and streams and rivers. They infest our
canyons, valleys, meadows, and forests. They graze off the
native bluestems and grama and bunch grasses, leaving behind
jungles of prickly pear. They trample down the native forbs and
shrubs and cacti. They spread the exotic cheatgrass, the Russian
thistle, and the crested wheat grass. Weeds. Even when the
cattle are not physically present, you see the dung and the flies
and the mud and the dust and the general destruction. If you
don't see it, you'll smell it. The whole American West stinks of
cattle.
It has been conventional practice to test potential carcinogens
using highly inbred strains of rodents. The rationale was the
supposed superior reproducibility of results compared with
those obtained from wild-type animals. However, that
assumption can be questioned. At least three examples of
genetic drift of inbred strains can be cited... Lifetime
expectation [in an inbred strain of mice] of developing one or
another form of neoplasm ['spontaneous tumour'] had risen
from 10 to 80 percent.
Results of the animal studies raise questions about the validity
of federal regulations that are based on ad lib-fed inbred strains
of rodents. Are humans to be regarded as behaving
biochemically like huge, obese, inbred cancer-prone rodents?
The estimate made by NIOSH was 597 excess cancers per
10,000 workers having that same exposure... Instead of extra
cancers predicted by NIOSH, workers had fewer cancers than
expected...With trillions of dollars, loss of competitiveness, and
jobs at stake, a searching review of the risk assessment
methodology of the regulatory agencies is overdue.
The principal method of determining potential carcinogenicity
of substances is based on studies of daily administration of
huge doses of chemicals to inbred rodents for a lifetime. Then
by questionable models, which include large safety factors, the
results are extrapolated to effects of minuscule doses in
humans... The rodent MTD test that labels plant chemicals as
cancer-causing in humans is misleading. The test is likewise of
limited value for synthetic chemicals. The standard carcinogen
tests that use rodents are an obsolescent relic of the ignorance
of past decades.
The use of inbred strains as test animals can be further
questioned on the basis that they often develop spontaneous
tumors in organs where cancers are not frequent in humans. For
example, incidences of mouse liver tumors in 2-yearold
B6C3F1 mice has ranged from 17.8 to 46.9 percent. In contrast,
the death rate from liver cancer in the United States is about
0.005 percent.
Seest thou not that it is God Whose praises all beings in the
heavens and on earth do celebrate, and the birds (of the air)
with wings outspread? Each one knows its own (mode of)
prayer and praise. And God knows well all that they do
Which religion gives the greatest joy to God? That which
inspires human beings to practice Ahimsa and compassion to
all creatures.
"I'm strongly against fur and all other forms of animal
exploitation. I'm against the slaughter of any living being
whether it was seal, cow, dog or some other animal."
"This is a revolution, damn it! We're going to have to offend
somebody!"
It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate,
tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.
You're thinking I'm one of those wise-ass California
vegetarians who is going to tell you that eating a few strips of
bacon is bad for your health. I'm not. I say its a free country and
you should be able to kill yourself at any rate you choose, as
long as your cold dead body is not blocking my driveway.
True benevolence, or compassion, extends itself through the
whole of existence and sympathizes with the distress of every
creature capable of sensation.
Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse
and thinks: they're only animals.
Imagine living in a cage in the dark, unable to move, day after
day. The suffering of today's American farm animals is almost
beyond belief. They don't have a choice, but you do, and their
lives depend on it.
People who wear fur coats and get paint on them? F--- 'em. It
may not be pleasant, but they've contributed to something so
awful that I feel like it's justified.
Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always
glorify the hunter.
In the killing of animals there is cruelty, rage, and the
accustoming of oneself to the bad habit of shedding innocent
blood.
If we are trespassing, so were the American Soldiers who broke
down the gates of Hitler's death camps; If we are thieves, so
were the members of the Underground Railroad who freed the
slaves of the South; and if we are vandals, so were those who
destroyed forever the gas chambers of Buchenwald and
Auschwitz.
There is no justice…Just Us!
One robin caged and Heaven's mad! But when to just that one
you add vast flocks of battered battery birds and half starved
calves in crated herds and multitudes of tethered sows in
narrow stalls - these horrors rouse all Heaven to a rage so wild
it's former rage seems a wonderous mild.
"Orthodox medicine condones ill-conduct and seeks to restore
health without rectifying it. True health cannot be attained in
this manner. Vivisection has no philosophy, no ethics, and no
width of vision. It will, therefore, disappear in the course of
time."
Although other animals cannot reason or speak the way humans
do, this does not give us the right to do with them as we like.
Even though our supposed possession of a soul and superior
intelligence are used to create an arbitrary dividing line over
rights, the fact remains that all animals have the capacity to
experience pain and suffering, and in suffering they are our
equals.
Incidence of lung and colorectal cancer is lower in vegetarians
than in nonvegetarians.
Serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol
levels are usually lower in vegetarians.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus is less likely to be a cause of death in
vegetarians than nonvegetarians.
Vegetarian diets offer disease protection benefits because
higher concentration of antioxidants such as vitamins C and E,
carotenoids, and phytochemicals.
Vegetarians have a lower incidence of hypertension than
nonvegetarians.
Vegan diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle,
including during pregnancy and lactation.
Vegetarian diets have been successful in arresting coronary
artery disease.
The butcher relenteth not at the bleating of the lamb; neither is
the heart of the cruel moved with distress. But the tears of the
compassionate are sweeter than dew-drops, falling from roses
on the bosom of spring.
Vegetarian diets offer disease protection benefits because of
their lower saturated fat, cholesterol, and animal protein
content and often higher concentration of folate which reduces
serum homocysteine levels.
Vegetarian diets low in fat or saturated fat have been used
successfully as part of comprehensive health programs to
reverse severe coronary artery disease.
Breast cancer rates are lower in populations that consume plant-
based diets.
I consider the 3 most cruelly produced foods to be from
lobsters, dropped alive into boiling water, veal from calves
separated from their mothers and kept in crates, and pate de
foie gras. (Pate de foie gras is covered in the film Mondo Kane
which shows the force feeding of geese. Food is stuffed down
their throats with a pole.. when they want to regurgitate.. a
brass ring is tied around the throat.. the excess food creates a
stuffed liver pleasing to gourmets.) (Caviar comes from the
ripping out of the ovaries of the mother sturgeon fish.)

If I'm lucky enough to get to heaven I might find that God is a
beaver or a burro. What a sad world it would be if only the two-
legged were here. We have established a Let's Hunt The
Hunters Club.. and we have certain rules: a. we're only doing it
for their good.. to cull the herd b. we don't interfere with their
mating season in parked cars c. we don't encourage anyone to
mount a hunter on the hood d. in wall mounting you may
include the cap and the jacket.
Men hunt I think maybe because they have something wrong
with thier own equipment and they need something else to
shoot.
My effort has been to narrate exposes of the leather trade in
India and the meat industry in the US and even spearhead a
petition drive against the annual seal hunt in Canada where
baby seals are beaten bloody on ice for their fur. I have used my
celeb status to fire off letters, pose for posters and motivated
designers to create animal friendly fashions and even urged
advertisers to stop using unwilling animal actors to sell
products. And I will continue to work for the cause, whatever it
takes."
I am sometimes asked: ‗Why do you spend so much of your
time and money talking about kindness to animals when there
is so much cruelty to men?‘ I answer: ‗I am working at the
roots.‘
"Bats. They do not 'multiply like rabbits', most bear only a
single young each year. They do not chew through wiring/
insulation/ other. They aren't blind, they don't get into women's
hair, and they aren't rodents. In fact, bats are more closely
related to humans."
"I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing
therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any
fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again."
"'Start with Yourself' When I was young and free and my
imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world. As
I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not
change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to
change only my country. But it, too, seemed immovable. As I
grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt I tried
changing only my family, those closest to me... but alas, they
would have none of it. And now , as I lie on my death bed, I
suddenly realize: If I had only changed myself first, Then by
example I would have changed my family. From their
inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to
better my country and, who knows, I may have even changed
the world."
"It's an old, old story: The closer to the Mecca, the farther from
Allah; the closer to the church, the farther from Jesus; the
closer to the law, the farther from justice."
I sometimes think, would I drink the milk from the breast of a
woman I don't know? No. So I think, why would I drink it from
a cow.
I was sitting here eating my plate of chicken salad, and
suddenly I looked down and saw all the meat on my plate and
just wasn't hungry anymore. So i've decided I'm not going to eat
meat.
Many years ago, I was in a Broadway show and I had to wear a
fox fur around my shoulders. One day my hand touched one of
the fox's legs. It seemed to be in two pieces. Then it dawned on
me.... her leg had probally been snapped in two by the steel trap
that had caught it.
"The other way leads to salvation. It is the way of
harmlessness, the way of the recognition of brotherhood with
all creatures, the way of tenderness and compassion, the way of
service and not of selfishness."
"The world stands at a parting of the ways and those who suffer
know this with deeply anxious hearts. One way leads to
destruction. It is the way of the tolerance of cruelty, if not the
active engagement in it. It is the way of hunting for sport, the
way of vivisection, the way of killing for self-adornment, the
way of killing animals for food, the way of making slaves of
animals without thought for their happiness and well-being.
This is the way the world has been treading."
Animals cannot speak, but can you and I not speak for them
and represent them? Let us all feel their cry of agony and let us
all help that cry to be heard in the world.
For example, the control incidence of mouse liver tumour
varies between 0 and 58% in 41 NTP [National Toxicology
Program] bioassays where these tumours are induced by a test
chemical.
I have enforced the law against killing certain animals and
many others, but the greatest progress of righteousness among
men comes from the exhortation in favour of non-injury to life
and abstention from killing all living beings.
Life is life--whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no
difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference
is a human conception for man's own advantage…
You are not required to complete the task of repairing the
world, neither are you free to abstain from it.
Adam was not permitted meat for purposes of eating.
The Torah teaches a lesson in moral conduct, that man shall not
eat meat unless he has a special craving for it...and shall eat it
only occasionally and sparingly.
On a wagon bound for market lay a cow with 2 mournful
eyes... lay a cow with 2 mournful eyes. (If one passes
slaughterhouse trucks on Rt 80 bound for Manhattan or the
slaughterhouses of S Phily, in winter, with the freezing wind
from mountain passes ripping through the slats, one sees their
noses pressed to the bars, and their sad and frightened eyes.)
It is in the battery shed that we find the parallel with
Auschwitz....To shut your mind, heart and imagination from
the sufferings of others is to begin slowly, but inexorably, to
die. Those Christians who close their minds and hearts to the
cause of animal welfare, and the evils it seeks to combat, are
ignoring the Fundamental spiritual teachings of Christ himself.
We need to bring home to people that all cruel behaviour,
whoever or whatever the victims, is the expression of a deep
evil flaw in human nature, and that all who oppose and fight it,
in whatever form, are crusading against a curse that could
destroy us all.
Yet saddest of all fates, surely, is to have lost that sense of the
holiness of life altogether; that we commit the blasphemy of
bringing thousands of lives to a cruel and terrifying death or of
making those lives a living death -- and feel nothing.
As long as there is conscious life on Earth, there will be
suffering. The question becomes what to do with the existence
each of us is given. We can choose to add our own fury and
misery to the rest, or we can set an example by simultaneously
working constructively to alleviate suffering while leading
joyous, meaningful, fulfilled lives. Being a vegan isn't about
deprivation or anger. It's about being fully aware so as to be
fully alive.
"Don't ask, 'How is one protest letter going to help?' If a million
people ask the same question - you know the math!"
Once I was fishing and caught the hook in the fish's eye. That
was the last time I ate a killed creature (paraphrased).
I'd like to see animals removed from the entertainment
business. Chimpanzees and apes won't perform unless you beat
them. Circuses keep elephants in chains 90 percent of the time.
Elephants need freedom of movement. In circuses, they live in
cramped quarters, which is not the life intended for them by
nature. Some are beaten daily, forced to do ridiculous tricks
and robbed of every shred of dignity.
We must educate the public. The average person has no idea of
what's going on in factory farms, in laboratories, circuses,
roadside zoos or rodeos.
I had bought two male chimps from a primate colony in
Holland. They lived next to each other in separate cages for
several months before I used one as a [heart] donor. When we
put him to sleep in his cage in preparation for the operation, he
chattered and cried incessantly. We attached no significance to
this, but it must have made a great impression on his
companion, for when we removed the body to the operating
room, the other chimp wept bitterly and was inconsolable for
days. The incident made a deep impression on me. I vowed
never again to experiment with such sensitive creatures.
The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths
than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all
automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of "real
food for real people" you'd better live real close to a real good
hospital.
To give a child animal products is a form of child abuse.
(child's diabetes related to cows' milk.) (His book Food For
Life cites 300 dietary studies.)
There exists a substantial body of competent and reliable
scientific evidence that eating eggs increases the risk of heart
attacks or heart disease....This evidence is systematic,
consistent, strong, and congruent.
The thing that has been weighing on my mind this week is that
I wanted to go and save all the little live lobsters in restaurants
and throw them back in the ocean. Imagine me being arrested
for that.
The body which is burdened with meat is afflicted with
diseases. A moderate way of living makes the body healthier
and stronger and cuts off the root of evil. The stream of meat
darkens the light of the spirit. One can hardly have virtue if one
enjoys meat and feasts.
The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, Oh, God,
enlarge within us the sense of fellowship with all living things,
our brothers the animals to whom you gave the earth as their
home in common with us. We remember with shame that in the
past we have exercised the high dominion of man with ruthless
cruelty so that the voice of the earth, which should have gone
up to you in song, has been a groan of travail. May we realize
that they live not for us alone but for themselves and for you
and that they love the sweetness of life.
If you could see or feel the suffering you wouldn't think twice.
Give back life. Don't eat meat.
"As for bypass surgery, animal research actually retarded this
therapy for humans. Because a dog's clotting characteristics
and coronary valves are so different from ours, the initial
human patients died. The first success was Dr Kunlin's work in
France. Dr Kunlin's work was clinical and had nothing to do
with animal research."---
All creation has the same right to life.
"How is 'Animal Rights' different from 'Animal Welfare'?
Animal welfare seeks to alleviate the suffering of animals
while they are being exploited - without attempting to question
the fundamental basis of whether it is acceptable to exploit
animals in the first place. Animal rights beliefs reject the idea
that animals need to have a value to the human species in order
to be deserving of rights."
"What is 'Animal Rights'? It is the philosophy of allowing
nonhuman animals to have the most basic rights that all
sentient beings desire: the freedom to live a natural life free
from human exploitation, pain and suffering, and premature
death. This is what the animal rights movement is about, it is
not about working for equality between human and nonhuman
animals."
"For fidelity, devotion, love, many a two-legged animal is
below the dog and the horse. Happy would it be for thousands
of people if they could stand at last before the Judgment Seat
and say 'I have loved as truly and I have lived as decently as my
dog.' And yet we call them 'only brutes'!"
The Prophet said, 'A man saw a dog eating mud from (the
severity of) thirst. So, that man took a shoe (and filled it) with
water and kept on pouring the water for the dog till it quenched
its thirst. So Allah approved of his deed and made him to enter
Paradise.
"In the end, it doesn't really matter what animals look like or
how they behave - whether they're similar to us or not. We need
to honor and respect all other animals in what David Abram in
'The Spell of the Sensuous' calls the 'more-than-human world.'"
"Remember, you hold the key to the future. You are the future.
With knowledge comes growth and tolerance. Each and every
one of us makes a difference. We must stroll with our animal
kin, not walk away from them."
"We don't want to be remembered as the generation that killed
nature. Please act! But be patient. Activism takes time, but it's
well worth it. Protest gently but forcefully. No one likes to be
bullied and changes that come about due to heavy-handedness
are usually short-lived and make little difference. Deep-rooted
changes take time, and often it takes many efforts to
accumulate the momentum that's needed to produce deep
changes in attitude and heart that truly make a difference. It's
important to listen to all views and master opponents'
arguments. Only by knowing the tactics of your opponents can
you mount a serious offense."
Cruelty is the obvious cancer of modern civilization.
"The crow may be caged, but its thoughts are in the cornfield."
"The man who is described as behaving 'like a beast' would
often in his behavior be a disgrace to any known animal."
Let us not think that [vegetarianism] is the end in itself. It is a
means only to an end, and we must not be content to be
vegetarians only. The end is the civilisation of the universal
feeling of brotherhood, on which it rests, not towards animals
only, but towards all men . . . our treatment of our fellow-
humans is largely reflected from our behaviour towards the sub-
human races. As long as our ethics in this matter are based on
barbaric cruelty and selfish tyranny it will forever be well-nigh
impossible to attain a high and just social morality.
Man is an almost hopelessly conceited animal, this pygmy! He
thinks that not only the earth with all that it contains was
created for his benefit, but also the sky, the sun, and indeed, the
whole universe, as far as he has any knowledge of it, were
designed for his purposes and welfare.
The old assumption that animals acted exclusively by instinct,
while man had a monopoly of reason, is, we think, maintained
by few people nowadays who have any knowledge at all about
animals. We can only wonder that so absurd a theory could
have been held for so long a time as it was, when on all sides
the evidence of animals‘ power of reasoning is crushing.
The American fast food diet and the meat eating habits of the
wealthy around the world support a world food system that
diverts food resources from the hungry. A diet higher in whole
grains and legumes and lower in beef and other meat is not just
healthier for ourselves but also contributes to changing the
world system that feeds some people and leaves others hungry.
The fact is that there is enough food in the world for everyone.
But tragically, much of the world's food and land resources are
tied up in producing beef and other livestock--food for the well
off--while millions of children and adults suffer from
malnutrition and starvation.
[W]e cannot just do whatever we want with them. ... Certainly,
a sort of industrial use of creatures, so that geese are fed in such
a way as to produce as large a liver as possible, or hens live so
packed together that they become just caricatures of birds, this
degrading of living creatures to a commodity seems to me in
fact to contradict the relationship of mutuality that comes
across in the Bible
His Holiness rejoices to know that the object of your Society is
in perfect accord with the doctrine which the Church has
always taught and the Saints have always followed, leaving us
innumerable beautiful examples of compassion and
tenderness.The fact that the Nations have not always followed
the precepts of the Church and the example of the Saints moves
the Sovereign Pontiff all the more to favour all that tends
(while reserving supreme honour to the King of Creation) to
foster respect for these other creatures of God, which
Providence forbids us to exploit without concern and enjoins us
to show wisdom in our use of them …Therefore the August
Pontiff trusts that you will find faithful and efficient fellow-
workers in the priests of God, since it is their duty to conform
to the teaching of the Church and the example of the Saints. It
is for them nobly to train souls in sentiments of enlightened
gentleness and fostering care and guidance, so that they may
offer to the animals refuge from every suspicion of roughness,
cruelty or barbarism, and lead men to understand from the
beauty of creation something of the infinite perfection of the
Creator.‘ are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are
"[Animals]
other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and
time..."

"I don't care whether animals are capable of thinking; all I care
about is that they are capable of suffering!"
The day may come when the rest of animal creation may
acquire those rights which could never have been withheld
from them but by the hand of tyranny...a full-grown horse or
dog is beyond comparison a more rational, as well as a more
conversable animal, than an infant of a day, or a week or even a
month old. But suppose the case were otherwise, what would it
avail? The question is not, can they reason? Nor can they talk?
But can they suffer? Why should the law refuse its protection to
any sensitive being? The time will come when humanity will
extend its mantle over everything which breathes.
Your good article about causing serious questions when
medical results on men studies are applied to women, opened
my eyes: If men and women are so different, how in the world
can scientists reach any valid conclusions from the myriad
projects and experiments... on different species??? It makes all
the animal testing/experimentation pretty futile!
My perspective of veganism was most affected by learning that
the veal calf is a by-product of dairying, and that in essence
there is a slice of veal in every glass of what I had thought was
an innocuous white liquid - milk.
. . there is one other thought closely allied to this. What of our
duties to our fellow-men? And here I appeal particularly to my
own sex, because women are supposed to be rather the standard
in the community of refinement, of gentleness, of compassion,
of tenderness, of purity. But no one can eat the flesh of a
slaughtered animal without having used the hand of a man as
slaughterer. Suppose that we had to kill for ourselves the
creatures whose bodies we would fain have upon our table, is
there one woman in a hundred who would go to the
slaughterhouse to slay the bullock, the calf, the sheep or the
pig? . . . But if we could not do it, nor see it done; if we are so
refined that we cannot allow close contact between ourselves
and the butchers who furnish this food; if we feel that they are
so coarsened by their trade that their very bodies are made
repulsive by the constant contact of the blood with which they
must be continually besmirched; if we recognize the physical
coarseness which results inevitably from such contact, dare we
call ourselves refined if we purchase our refinement by the
brutalization of others, and demand that some should be brutal
We find amongst animals, as amongst men, power of feeling
pleasure, power of feeling pain; we see them moved by love
and by hate; we see them feeling terror and attraction; we
recognize in them powers of sensation closely akin to our own,
and while we transcend them immensely in intellect, yet in
mere passional characteristics our natures and the animals‘ are
closely allied. We know that when they feel terror, that terror
means suffering. We know that when a wound is inflicted, that
wound means pain to them. We know that threats bring to them
suffering; they have a feeling of shrinking, of fear, of absence
of friendly relations, and at once we begin to see that in our
relations to the animal kingdom a duty arises which all
thoughtful and compassionate minds should recognize—the
duty that because we are stronger in mind than the animals, we
are or ought to be their guardians and helpers, not their tyrants
and oppressors, and we have no right to cause them suffering
and terror merely for the gratification of the palate, merely for
an added luxury to our own lives.
When we recognise that unity of all living things, then at once
arises the question - how can we support this life of ours with
least injury to the lives around us; how can we prevent our own
life adding to the suffering of the world in which we live?
"In a world older and more complete than ours, animals move
finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we
have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never
hear. They are not underlings; they are other nations, caught
with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of
the splendor and travail of the earth."
We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical
concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by
complicated artifice, man in civilisation surveys the creature
through the glass of his knowledge and sees there by a feather
magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize
them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate for having
taken form so far below ourselves. And therein do we err. The
animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and
more complete than ours, they move finished and complete,
gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never
attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not
brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught
with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of
the splendor and travail of the earth.
One is dearest to God who has no enemies among the living
beings, who is nonviolent to all creatures. (Sanskrit word
ahimsa means non-harm to all life)
Therefore a person fully absorbed in the bodily concept of life
is surely killing himself by not making spiritual progress. Such
a person is called pasu-ghna. Especially excluded from spiritual
life are the animal hunters, who are not interested in hearing
and chanting the holy name of the Lord. Such hunters are
always unhappy, both in this life and in the next. It is therefore
said that a hunter should neither die nor live because for such
persons both living and dying are troublesome.
There will come a time when the world will look back to
modern vivisection in the name of Science, as they do now to
burning at the stake in the name of religion.
 "Any person who had to endure certain experiments carried
out on animals which perish slowly in the laboratories would
regard death by burning at the stake as a happy deliverance.
Like everyone else in my profession, I used to be of the opinion
that we owe nearly all our knowledge of medical and surgical
science to animal experiments. Today I know that precisely the
opposite is the case, in surgery especially, they are of no help to
the practitioner, indeed he is often led astray by them." -----
(Hans Ruesch, One Thousand Doctors (and many more)
Against Vivisection.)
Guard the life of another creature as you would your own
because it is your own. On life's scale of values, the smallest is
no less precious to the creature who owns it than the largest…
Vegetarianism, that is me. I don't eat meat. It's been over 10
years. Actually it's been 11 and a half years and I feel good and
I feel like I look good and I have energy and you have to look at
what you're putting in your body. I eat vegetables and I eat
grain and I take care of myself and I don't think I look that bad,
do I?
"(The animal rights movement) should be supported by all
Christians. In an ecological universe, every created entity has
intrinsic value because all are subjects as well as objects. As we
cover more and more of the earth with our
factories/highways/towns/parking lots, we annihilate more and
more plants and animals."
I have been a vegetarian for about 10 years. And it really was
due to the reading that I did. And they explain so that you
understand why it's important for the planet's survival along
with compassion for animals. It certainly made it much easier
for me. I lost weight really fast. My mother died from cancer so
this is all very personal to me. And I just would like the planet
to be a better place. And I think you'll find a vegetarian diet to
be really incredible these days.
"Little fly, thy summer's play My thoughtless hand has brushed
away. Am not I a fly like thee? Or art not thou a man like me?

All wholesome food is caught without a net or a trap.
I'm picky when it comes to food-as long as there's no meat in it.
"I think it indisputable that the distance between the intellectual
faculties of different men is greater than that between the same
faculties in some men and some other animals."
"In Saudi Arabia, a motorist accidentally killed a monkey on a
highway in the Khamis Messeit region. Later, while driving
home on the same road, he found monkeys still gathered
around the dead animal's body. The mourners spotted his car,
jumped on it, and smashed his windows!"
The creatures of the sense world signify the invisible attributes
of God, partly because God is the origin, exemplar and end of
every creature, and every effect is a sign of its cause, the
exemplification of the exemplar and the path to the end, to
which it leads. ... For every creature is by its nature a kind of
effigy and likeness of the eternal Wisdom. Therefore, open
your eyes, alert the ears of your spirit, open your lips and apply
your heart so that in all creatures you may see, hear, praise,
love and worship, glorify and honor your God lest the whole
world rise against you.
The awful cruelty and terror to which tens of thousands of
animals killed for human food are subjected in traveling long
distances by ship and rail and road to the slaughterhouses of the
world.. God disapproves of all cruelty.. whether to man or
beast. The occupation of slaughtering animals is brutalizing to
those who are required to do the work.... I believe this matter is
well worthy of the serious consideration of Christian leaders.
But the question is, whether the animals who endure such
sufferings of various kinds for the service and entertainment of
man, would accept existence upon the terms on which they
have it."
I think it's really disgusting that designers use fur, and it's
disgusting that people wear fur. It has to stop. It's so
unnecessary in today's world, with the technology we have. I'm
wearing fabulous "ultrasuede" tonight. This is totally the look
of leather. There's a way to get it without death involved. We
should be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
We are fighting until every cage is empty, not until every cage
is comfortable.
"During the past fifty years scientists experimenting with
thousands of animals have found 700 ways of causing cancer.
But they had not discovered one way of curing the disease."
During the last 80+ years, scientists experimenting on trillions
of animals, came up with 900 ways of causing cancer in a
mouse...BUT NO CURE TO HUMANS!
"I personally can see no reason for conceding mind to my
fellow men and denying it to animals... I at least cannot doubt
that the interests and activities of animals are correlated with
awareness and feeling in the same way as my own, and which
may be, for aught I know, just as vivid."
"I'm 23 now, and I've grown into this woman. I feel sexy and
more mature. I wanted these inside changes to be reflected in
both my look and music. I am a vegan now, and it was a
conscious decision. I studied a lot about African culture and
health and the best way to take care of the body. I really wanted
to be healthy. At first I was just trying to challenge myself; I
thought it was a phase and that I would grow out of it, but it
wasn't. I found out a lot about the body and what [hormones]
they put in meat. My taste buds started changing, and I didn't
crave [meat and dairy products] anymore."
I went snorkeling and noticed how gently the fish welcomed us
into their world.. as compared to the violence with which we
welcomed them into ours. I became a vegetarian.
Mortality from coronary artery disease is lower in vegetarians
than in nonvegetarians.
Vegetarians often have lower mortality rates from several
chronic degenerative diseases than do nonvegetarians.
"Animals cannot be defended with sentimentalism and crying,
because this does not move any hearts. More effective is to
engage in a more practical fight based on scientific and
economic arguments. Many people only understand money and
their own welfare, not the suffering and murder of innocent
species."
The study measured testosterone levels in 696 Oxford
University men. Of the study participants, 233 were vegan (ate
no animal products) and 237 were vegetarian (ate milk and
dairy products). The remaining 237 subjects were men who ate
meat on most days of the week...vegans had higher testosterone
levels than vegetarians and meat-eaters.
"If, say, your employer had offered to bump you off at thirty,
would you be reconciled to him on condition he did it

"The fact that there are bigger injustices and wrongs doesn't
make it right to sacrifice an innocent monkey. It doesn't alter
the case at all."
"To us it seems incredible that the Greek philosophers should
have scanned so deeply into right and wrong and yet never
noticed the immorality of slavery. Perhaps 3000 years from
now it will seem equally incredible that we do not notice the
immorality of our own oppression of animals."
A medical profession founded on callousness to the pain of the
other animals may eventually destroy its own sensibility to the
pain of humans.
In point of fact, I am the very opposite of an
anthropomorphiser. I don't hold animals superior or even equal
to humans. The whole case for behaving decently to animals
rests on the fact that we are the superior species. We are the
species uniquely capable of imagination, rationality and moral
choice - and that is precisely why we are under an obligation to
recognize and respect the rights of animals.
The person who kills for fun is announcing that, could he get
away with it, he'd kill you for fun. Your...life may be of no
consequence to anyone else but is invaluable to you because it's
the only one you've got. Exactly the same is true of each
individual deer, hare, rabbit, fox, fish, pheasant and butterfly.
Humans should enjoy their own lives, not taking others'.
To argue that we humans are capable of complex multifarious
thought and feeling, whereas the sheep's perception is probably
limited by lowly sheepish perceptions, is no more to the point
than if I were to slaughter and eat you on the grounds that I am
a sophisticated personality able to enjoy Mozart, formal logic
and cannibalism, whereas your imaginative world seems
confined to True Romances and tinned spaghetti.
What the factory farmers emphasize is that animals are
different from humans: we can‘t, we are told, judge their
reactions by our own, because they don‘t have human feelings.
But no one in his senses ever supposed they did. Anyone
acquainted with animals can guess pretty well that they have
less intellect and memory than humans, and live closer to their
instincts. But the reasonable conclusion to draw from this is the
very opposite of the one the factory farmers try to force upon
us. In all probability, animals feel more sharply than we do any
restrictions on such instinctual promptings as the need, which
we share with them, to wander around and stretch one‘s legs
every now and then; and terror or distress suffered by an animal
is never, as sometimes in us, softened by intellectual
comprehension of the circumstances.
Whenever people say, 'We mustn't be sentimental,' you can take
it they are about to do something cruel. And if they add, 'We
must be realistic,' they mean they are going to make money out
of it."
 "They [scientists] may claim to love truth; but when it is a
matter of truth versus dollars, they love the dollars more."
Animal model systems in cancer research have been a total
failure…not a single essential drug for the treatment of human
cancer was first picked up by an animal model system. All of
the drugs in wide current clinical use were only put into animal
model systems after finding clinical clues to their therapeutic
possibility. The money was spent…for two main reasons. First,
it was a highly profitable undertaking for certain medical
schools and research institutions that were incapable of doing
any genuine cancer research. Second, it was sustained by a
superstitious belief in a grossly unscientific notion: mice are
miniature men…in sum, from the standpoint of current
scientific theory of cancer, the whole mystique of the animal
model systems is hardly more than superstitious nonsense…the
moral is that animal model systems not only kill animals, they
also kill humans. There is no good factual evidence to show the
use of animals in cancer research has led to the prevention or
cure of a single human cancer.
The discovery of chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of
human cancer is widely heralded as a triumph due to the use of
animal models… However, there is little, if any, factual
evidence that would support these claims… Indeed, while
conflicting animal results have often delayed and hampered
advances in the war on cancer, they have never produced a
single substantial advance in either the prevention or treatment
of human cancer.
"Recorded history shows the relationship between human and
animal has been very one-sided! Man's exploitation/treatment
of animals stands out as one of the darkest stains on his
reputation. Is the purpose of life for the indulgence of selfish
desires? Or a medium for soul growth? If we behave brutally or
selfishly, then we are brutes and selfish. No religious label or
outward facade alters this truth. Can we believe in and preach
life after death, and yet be party to murdering millions of
innocent animals via the blood-drenched abattoir, vivisection,
fur trade, 'games', entertainment, 'sports'???"
"Psychologists/sociologists/criminologists studied prison
inmates who committed especially brutal/sadistic crimes to
humans like rape/torture/murder. One common factor in almost
all of these sadistic crimes was a background of animal abuse
and torture in these criminals' youths, adolescence or early
childhood. Because of these and many similar findings, abuse
of animals is viewed as a predictor of vicious crimes against
people!"
I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian
because I hate plants.
How long can you hear someone crying - how long can you
hear someone dying - before you ask yourself why?
God made all the creatures and gave them our love and our
fear, to give sign, we and they are His children, one family
here.
I despise and abhor the pleas on behalf of that infamous
practice, vivisection... I would rather submit to the worst of
deaths, so far as pain goes, than have a single dog or cat
tortured to death on the pretense of sparing me a twinge or two.
The person who is afraid to alter his living habits,and especially
his eating and drinking habits, because he is afraid that other
persons may regard him as queer, eccentric, or fanatic forgets
that the ownership of his body, the responsibility for its well-
being, belongs to him, not them.
All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life.
See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm
can you do?
May all that have life be delivered from suffering.
The eating of meat extinguishes the seed of great compassion.
To become vegetarian is to step into the stream which leads to
nirvana.
When a man has pity on all living creatures then only is he
noble.
"He [man] abuses equally other animals and his own species,
the rest of whom live in famine, languish in misery, and work
only to satisfy the immoderate appetite and the still more
insatiable vanity of this human being who, destroying others by
want, destroys himself by excess."
"If social activism required human perfection, nothing would
ever get done. Thankfully, we don't have to be perfect to show
people how to prevent the suffering of others. In the long run,
the best we can do is to make sure we're doing the best we can
do ourselves and to speak out for all living beings."
Edith Bunker: Archie.. do you want eggs for breakfast? Archie:
I'm not going to eat anything that was in a cow's mouth. Fix me
eggs, Edith.
If the creatures with fur/feathers/fins are our brothers in a lower
stage of development then their very weakness and inability to
protest, demands that man should refrain from torturing them
for the mere possibility of obtaining some knowledge which he
believes may be to his own interest.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to
do nothing.
But man to whom alone is given/ A ray direct from pitying
/Heaven Glories in his heart humane /And creatures for his
pleasure slain.
We do trials in people because animal models do not predict
what will happen in humans.
If all you see of a chicken are its body parts wrapped in plastic
it's difficult to remember that chickens are individuals. Anyone
who gets to know a particular chicken learns that their range of
emotions is vast and undeniable.
May those who oppose capital punishment for humans extend
that protection to animals as well . May those who oppose germ
and other biological warfare work to end the unconscious
biological warfare unwittingly waged on those who eat animal
products. Those who are prolife would logically become
vegetarian. Those who are prochoice would not want to impose
their wills upon the body of a cow, sheep or pig.
"Experimentation on animals undermines the very foundations
of practical medicine."
A column of ants began to follow me onto the tennis court.
Because I would not step on them, I lost the match. But I won
with God.
I just could not stand the idea of eating meat - I really do think
that it has made me calmer.... People's general awareness is
getting much better, even down to buying a pint of milk: the
fact that the calves are actually killed so that the milk doesn't
go to them but to us cannot really be right, and if you have seen
a cow in a state of extreme distress because it cannot
understand why its calf isn't by, it can make you think a lot.
Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with
the victims he intends to eat until he eats them.
On profit-driven factory farms, veal calves are confined to dark
wooden crates so small that they are prevented from lying
down or scratching themselves. These creatures feel; they know
pain. They suffer pain just as we humans suffer pain. Egg-
laying hens are confined to battery cages. Unable to spread
their wings, they are reduced to nothing more than an egg-
laying machine. . . . The law clearly requires that these poor
creatures be stunned and rendered insensitive to pain before
[the slaughtering] process begins. Federal law is being ignored.
Animal cruelty abounds. It is sickening. It is infuriating.
Barbaric treatment of helpless, defenseless creatures must not
be tolerated even if these animals are being raised for
food—and even more so, more so. Such insensitivity is
insidious and can spread and is dangerous. Life must be
respected and dealt with humanely in a civilized society.

For all we know that English people are/ Fed upon beef - I
won't say much of beer/ Because 'tis liquor only, and being far/

Personally, I would not give a fig for any man's religion whose
horse, cat and dog do not feel its benefits. Life in any form is
our perpetual responsibility.
"Many times I'm told I should stop protecting animals and start
protecting people. I'm deeply concerned about the poor/the

Excessive animal protein is at the core of many chronic
diseases.
I was raised on a dairy farm and ate plenty of meat and eggs
until about twenty years ago. I started doing nutritional
research, and a decade or so after that my family made some
major dietary changes. I'm just paying attention to what the data
are telling me. The scientific evidence came first.
In every respect, vegans appear to enjoy equal or better health
in comparison to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.
In the next 10 to 15 years, one of the things you‘re bound to
hear is that animal protein ... is one of the most toxic nutrients
of all that can be considered. Risk for disease goes up
dramatically when even a little animal protein is added to the
diet.
We are basically a vegetarian species and should be eating a
wide variety of plant food and minimizing our intake of animal
foods. study found a close correlation between meat
consumption and heart disease and cancer.
What we have come to consider as "normal" illnesses of aging
are really not normal. In fact, these findings indicate that the
vast majority, perhaps 80 to 90%of all cancers, cardiovascular
diseases, and other forms of degenerative illness can be
prevented, at least until very old age, simply by adopting a
plant-based diet.
"Love of animals is a universal impulse, a common ground on
which all of us may meet. By loving and understanding
animals, perhaps we humans shall come to understand each
other."
Never believe that animals suffer less than humans. Pain is the
same for them that it is for us. Even worse, because they cannot
help themselves.
Reduced colorectal cancer risk is associated with increased
consumption of fiber, vegetables, and fruit.
It is a surprisingly close progression from hunting animals to
hunting and torturing people.. catching and lynching blacks or
smoking out Jews during the Holocaust.

"Fox Urine: This horrifically produced product is marketed as a
way to keep deer out of gardens, but experts say it doesn't
work. On urine-collection 'farms,' foxes, coyotes, raccoons and
other animals are crammed into tiny cages. They live on feces-
encrusted wire cage floors so their urine can be collected in
trays below. On one such 'farm,' PETA investigators found
animals with open infected wounds and exposed bones. Most
huddled together in fear, but others had gone 'cage-crazy' and
circled endlessly, seeking a way to comfort themselves. Some
chewed and mutilated their own flesh. Owners then killed them
for their fur by using agonizing anal electrocution. Some
sporting goods stores sell urine collected from deer crammed
into tiny pens for use by hunters to mask their human odor and
to lure bucks to the hunters' tree stands. Be a 'deer' - and ask
managers of local gardening, department and sporting goods
stores NOT to sell bottled urine."

 It seems doubtful from all that has been said whether the Torah
would sanction 'factory farming,' which treats animals as
machines, with apparent insensitivity to their natural needs and
instincts. This is a matter for decision by halachic authorities.
Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is--
whether its victim is human or animal--we cannot expect things
to be much better in this world... We cannot have peace among
men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By
every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in
killing we set back the progress of humanity.
Even when there are common target sites for a given
carcinogen, there are usually important differences, between
man and animals, and between different species and strains of
animals. These 'spontaneous' tumours in rats and mice... [vary]
widely according to sex, strain, diet, conditions of maintenance,
hormonal status, immunological status and latent virus
infections.
Apparently the Torah was in principle opposed to the eating of
meat. When Noah and his descendants were permitted to eat
meat this was a concession conditional on the prohibition of the
blood. This prohibition implied respect for the principle of life
(‗for the blood is the life‘) and an allusion to the fact that in
reality all meat should have been prohibited. This partial
prohibition was designed to call to mind the previously total
one.
You are permitted to use the animals and employ them for
work, have dominion over them in order to utilize their services
for your subsistence, but must not hold their life cheap nor
slaughter them for food. Your natural diet is vegetarian.
Vegetarians have the best diet. They have the lowest rates of
coronary disease of any group in the country....Some people
scoff at vegetarians, but they have a fraction of our heart attack
rate and they have only 40 percent of our cancer rate. They
outlive other men by about six years now.
When you see the golden arches you are probally on your way

When evaluated on the basis of real usefulness to humanity,
"scientific research" is a fraud, whether intentional or not.
The brute animals have all the same sensations of pain as
human beings, and consequently endure as much pain when
their body is hurt; but in their case the cruelty of torment is
greater, because they have no mind to bear them up against
their sufferings, and no hope to look forward to when enduring
the last extreme pain.
"Mourn not the dead, that in the cool earth lie, dust unto dust;
The calm, sweet earth, that mothers all who die, as all men
must; But rather mourn the apathetic throng, the cowed and the
meek, who see the world's great anguish and its wrong, and
dare not speak!"
The Prophet said, 'A woman entered the (Hell) Fire because of
a cat which she had tied, neither giving it food nor setting it
free to eat from the vermin of the earth.
I feel very deeply about vegetarianism and the animal kingdom.
It was my dog Boycott who led me to question to right of
humans to eat other sentient beings.
Kindness and compassion towards all living beings is a mark of
a civilized society. Racism, economic deprival, dog fighting
and cock fighting, bullfighting and rodeos are all cut from the
same defective fabric: violence. Only when we have become
nonviolent towards all life will we have learned to live well
ourselves.
Do we, as humans, having an ability to reason and to
communicate abstract ideas verbally and in writing, and to
form ethical and moral judgments using the accumulated
knowledge of the ages, have the right to take the lives of other
sentient organisms, particularly when we are not forced to do
so by hunger or dietary need, but rather do so for the somewhat
frivolous reason that we like the taste of meat? In essence,
shouldn't we know better?
"Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create,
so that he can add to what's been given. But up to now he hasn't
been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing,
rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined
and the land grows poorer and uglier every day."
To see the convulsions, agonies and tortures of a poor fellow-
creature, whom they cannot restore nor recompense, dying to
gratify luxury and tickle callous and rank organs, must require
a rocky heart, and a great degree of cruelty and ferocity. I
cannot find any great difference between feeding on human
flesh and feeding on animal flesh, except custom and practice.
Whenever we cause suffering or death to any other being, we
cause suffering to the Great Life Force.
For hundreds of thousands of years the stew in the pot has
brewed hatred and resentment that is difficult to stop. If you
wish to know why there are disasters of armies and weapons in
the world, listen to the piteous cries from the slaughter house at
midnight.
Let us pray that our food should not be colored with animal
blood and human suffering.
The saints are exceedingly loving and gentle to mankind, and
even to brute beasts. . . . Surely we ought to show [animals]
great kindness and gentleness for many reasons, but, above all,
because they are of the same origin as ourselves.
We (the Christian Leaders) practice Abstinence From the Flesh
of Animals to subdue our bodies..... THE UNNATURAL
EATING OF FLESH MEAT OF ANIMALS IS OF
DEMONICAL ORIGIN...... the eating of Flesh is Polluting.
Please put the ladybug outside without harming her. (to his
butler)
I think if you want to eat more meat you should kill it yourself
and eat it raw so that you are not blinded by the hypocrisy of
having it processed for you.
It is far better to be happy than to have your bodies act as
graveyards for animals. Accordingly, the apostle [St.] Matthew
partook of seeds, nuts and vegetables, without meat.
The unnatural eating of the Flesh of Animals is as polluting as
the Heathen Worship of Devils, with its Sacrifices and its
impure Feasts, man becomes a fellow eater with Devils.
Some plant proteins may increase survival rates and decrease
proteinuria, glomerular filtration rate, renal blood flow, and

"About 40 per cent of all procedures used some form of
anaesthesia to alleviate the severity of the interventions. For
many of the remaining procedures the use of anaesthesia would
have increased the animal welfare cost of the procedure."
Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds,
kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers,
groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes - by the million in order
to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills
domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills
man by the million, because eating all those animals leads to
degenerative - and fatal- health conditions like heart disease,
kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills
millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.
Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by
hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being
used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are
dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so
easily and so violently, and once a year, sends out cards praying
for "Peace on Earth."
It [referring to dog labs] did more to damage my identity as a
physician than anything else. I learned nothing physiological. I
learned that life is cheap, and that misery can be ignored.

Vivisection is anti-science and anti-health, and is leading us
down a path of waste and decay! I encourage people to fight the
dangerous dead-end of animal experimentation.
...many vivisectors still claim that what they do helps save
human lives. They are Lying. The truth is that animal
experiments kill people, and animal researchers are responsible
for the deaths of thousands of men, women and children every
year.
At the moment our human world is based on the suffering and
destruction of millions of non-humans. To perceive this and to
do something to change it in personal and public ways is to
undergo a change of perception akin to a religious conversion.
Nothing can ever be seen in quite the same way again because
once you have admitted the terror and pain of other species you
will, unless you resist conversion, be always aware of the
endless permutations of suffering that support our society.
"Sharks. Though they have long been stigmatized as the terror
of the seas, they have far more to fear from humans. Over 100
million sharks die at the hands of humans each year, while only

It is never governments or well funded organizations that affect
revolutionary change, but the common people, unwilling to sit
back any longer and watch the animals they love be destroyed.

…one of the great fallacies in this calculation is that they are
assuming that the mouse or rat or the hamster predicts for man,
and we have no basis for this prediction…So it‘s again a half-
baked guess… Does the animal model have any relevance to
human disease? If not we‘re wasting a lot of time, a lot of
money, a lot of good scientists, and a lot of good space at
NIH… I completely agree with Dr. Clayton that extrapolation
is unscientific… the chief objective here is to keep us all
employed and to make sure we do interesting experiments so
we can keep coming back to nice places like this.
We have a discrepancy between animal data and human
data…clearly, right now our animal models are totally and
absolutely inadequate to answer all the obvious questions
before us.
Nothing is more powerful than an individual acting out of her

Not having known anything better does not alleviate the
suffering of the animal. Its fundamental desires remain and it is
the frustration of those desires that is a great part of its
suffering. There are so many examples: the dairy cow who is
never allowed to raise her young, the battery hen who can never
walk or stretch her wings, the sow who can never build a nest
or root for food in the forest litter, etc. Eventually we frustrate
the animal's most fundamental desire of all - to live.
If any kid ever realized what was involved in factory farming
they would never touch meat again. I was so moved by the
intelligence, sense of fun and personalities of the animals I
worked with on Babe that by the end of the film I was a
vegetarian.
Pigs may not be as cuddly as kittens or puppies, but they suffer
just as much.
We don't need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away

If an animal does something we call it instinct; if we do the
same thing for the same reason we call it intelligence.
"The more helpless the victim, the greater the crime!"
"To say that you behaved like animals is offensive to the

The most energetic workers I have encountered in my world
travels are the vegetarian miners of Chile.
There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher
mammals in their mental faculties.... The difference in mind
between man and the higher animals, great as it is, certainly is
one of degree and not of kind. We have seen that the senses and
intuitions, the various emotions and faculties, such as love,
memory, attention and curiosity, imitation, reason, etc., of
which man boasts, may be found in an incipient, or even
sometimes a well-developed condition, in the lower animals.
The [pharmaceutical] industry is left with an expensive and

Nothing spoils lunch any quicker than a rogue meatball

Killing an animal to make a coat is sin. It wasn't meant to be,
and we have no right to do it. A woman gains status when she

If the death of one rat cured all diseases, it wouldn't make any

It took me a couple of years reading the vivisectors' own

"Torturing animals in any form in the name of Christ, the
Virgin and the Saints, in these pagan practices, it simply means
to step on and spit at, the work of God."
You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the
rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.
I decline to go fox hunting (nor did she want her sons William
and Harry to be involved in hunting).
She gave up eating pork three years ago, despite her proud pork-
loving, half-Cuban heritage, because she was told pigs share
the same mental capacity as 3-year-old children. 'My niece was
3 at the time, which is a magical age,' she said, horrified. 'I
thought, Oh, my god, it's like eating my niece!' This, then, also
put an end to her preferred hangover cure: Egg McMuffins with
Canadian bacon, natch, and beer.
What is it but deliberate massacre when tens of thousands of
tame, hand-reared creatures are every year literally driven into
the jaws of death and mown down in a peculiarly brutal
manner? A perfect roar of guns fills the air; louder tap and yell
the beaters, while above the din can be heard the heart-rending
cries of wounded hares and rabbits, some of which can be seen
dragging themselves away, with legs broken, or turning round
and round in their agony before they die! And the pheasants!
They are on every side, some rising, some dropping; some
lying dead, but the great majority fluttering on the ground
wounded; some with both wings broken and a leg; others
merely winged, running to hide; others mortally wounded,
gasping out their last breath amidst the hellish uproar which
surrounds them. And this is called 'sport!'
Ostrasize hunters and trappers from your social life. Don't
patronize stores and services owned by hunters and trappers.
Anything that can feel pain should not be put to pain.
"Civil disobedience has been used as an effective means of
bringing about social change throughout history. Thoreau/
Gandhi/ Martin Luther King, Jr. all practiced nonviolent civil
disobedience. It allows us to follow the 'moral law,' and it
attracts media to the event enabling us to tell the whole world
what really goes on behind closed doors. Many expressed
dismay at our willingness to break the laws which we consider
to be unjust, to them this quote from Thoreau in his famous
essay 'On the Duty of Civil Disobedience. If a law is of such
nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to
another, then, I say, break the law! Let your life be a counter
friction to stop the machine.'" (FoA's 'Act-tionLine')
The 1950's American dream of owning a mink coat is as dead
as the 60 mink killed to make that coat.
Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with
the object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace
and rest at last, but that it was essential and inevitable to torture
to death only one tiny creature, and to found that edifice on its
unavenged tears. Would you consent to be the architect on
those conditions? Tell me, and tell the truth.
Love animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought
and joy untroubled. Do not trouble their joy, don't harass them,
don't deprive them of their happiness, don't work against God's
intent. Man, do not pride yourself on superiority to animals;
they are without sin, and you, with your greatness, defile the
earth by your appearance on it, and leave the traces of your
foulness after you - alas, it is true of almost every one of us!
Arson and cruelty to animals are 2 of 3 childhood warning
signs regarding the potential to be a serial killer. (To no longer
objectify living beings by ceasing hunting and fishing takes one
l step further away from the murder of humans.)
[The day should come when] all of the forms of life...will stand
before the court -- the pileated woodpecker as well as the
coyote and bear, the lemmings as well as the trout in the
streams.
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess
to favour freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are people who
want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean
without the roar of its many waters. Power concedes nothing
without a demand. It never did and it never will.
Oprah has power because Oprah is believable. People do not
believe the beef industry. Shouldn't we be more concerned
about the first amendment rather than protecting powerful
agribusiness?
Man has no compassion for humans, has no compassion for
animals, has lost contact to the natural environment. He creates
his own virtual world, where he does not live his own life, but
the life of a consumer robot, thus drifting away ever further
from his true self. Slowly and gradually he will stop being a
feeling person that is connected with other beings and nature.
And in the end, there will be no more real world. Somewhere
along the line it will simply disappear."
The meaning of life is in spreading peace and kindness.
"I am fully in agreement with the bills against vivisection, for
the abolition of vivisection can only be seen as an advance in
public education"
If we wish to understand human cancer, the [research] effort
should be made in humans because the genetic control seems to
be different in different species.
"The vaccination causes, furthermore an explosion of
leukaemia."
A meat-fed world now appears a chimera. World grain
production has grown more slowly than population since 1984,
and farmers lack new methods for repeating the gains of the
green revolution. Supporting the world's current population of
5.4 billion people on an American-style diet would require two-
and-a-half times as much grain as the world's farmers produce
for all purposes. A future world of 8 billion to 14 billion people
eating the American ration of 220 grams of grain-fed meat a
day can be nothing but a flight of fancy.

As happened with tobacco, health warnings about meat eating
are multiplying, and awareness of the environmental effects of
meat production is rising. Just as cigarettes lost their allure,
meat is losing its social cachet in some countries. Food
marketers in the United Kingdom estimate that 2 million
people in that country are strict vegetarians. More important,
the number of people limiting meat in their diets is rising
rapidly. An estimated 6 million people in the United Kingdom
dine on meatless meals most of the time.
"In the words of the Spanish philosopher, Miguel de Unamuno,
'Sometimes to be silent is to lie.' Our movement hasn't been
silent but whispering at a barely audible level... it hardly
represents the brutal truth!"
The major problems of animal studies are the validity of cross-
species comparisons and relevance to human disease.
"The Health Dept. is not required to be knowledgeable or
honest. Insecticides kill weak insects, but the strong ones
survive and multiply. Disease is all around us, but we will not
be affected by it if we build up our immune systems. If we take
responsibility for our lives, we do not have to blame
mosquitoes for our illness."
I take vitamins daily, but just the bare essentials not what you'd
call supplements. I try to stick to a vegan diet heavy on fruit,
vegetables, tofu, and other soy products.
For that which befalleth the sons of men, befalleth the beasts,
even one thing befalleth them: As the one dieth, so dieth the
other; yea, they have all one breath, so that a man hath no pre-
eminence above a beast.
I decided that God is testing us, to show us that we are no
better than animals. After all, the same fate awaits man and
animals alike. One dies just like the other. They are the same
kind of creature. A human being is no better off than an animal,
because life has no meaning for either. They are both going to
the same place - the dust. They both came from it; they will
both go back to it. How can anyone be sure that a man's spirit
goes upward while an animal's spirit goes down into the
ground?
Even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the
other; yea, they have all one breath, so that a man hath no
preeminence above a beast: for all is Vanity.
Apprehend God in all things, for God is in all things. Every
single creature is full of God and is a book about God. Every
creature is a word of God.
Get a feel for fur: Slam your fingers in a car door. (on the use

"One animal or plant species may become extinct every hour.
All species are doomed to extinction, but man through
worldwide development/killing animals for food/profit/using
toxic chemicals such as pesticides/industrial wastes, will
accelerate the extinction of plants/animals and the result will be
a more hostile environment for man."
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of
all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we
are still savages.
Dr. Dolittle is a reluctant but dedicated vegetarian. Being
around all the animals in the film made me one too.
"Those who refuse to kill animals would certainly refuse to
take the lives of their fellow humans."
A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the
'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences
himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from
the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This
delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal
desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our
task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our
circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the
whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this
completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a
part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.

If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of
abstinence is from injury to animals.
It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living by it's purely
physical effect on the human temperament would most
beneficially influence the lot of mankind.
Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of
survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a
vegetarian diet.

The important thing is not to stop questioning.

One does not meet one's self until one catches the reflection
from an eye other than human.
Tongue - a variety of meat, rarely served because it clearly
crosses the line between a cut of beef and a piece of a dead
cow.
It's sad. That's a living creature. We don't have the right to take
thier life away for fashion.
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent
people and the affection of children... to leave the world a

you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
You have just dined, and however scrupulously the
slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles,
there is complicity. In Fate
...of the 20 probable human non-carcinogens with conclusive
animal bioassay results, only one, methotrexate, is negative,
and the other 19 are positive... Thus, the standard interpretation
of animal bioassay results provides essentially no
differentiation between definite human carcinogens and
probable human non-carcinogens.
There can be no question that more hunger can be alleviated
with a given quantity of grain by completely eliminating
animals [from the food production process]. About 2,000
pounds of concentrates [grains] must be supplied to livestock in
order to produce enough meat and other livestock products to
support a person for a year, whereas 400 pounds of grain (corn,
wheat, rice, soybeans, etc.) eaten directly will support a person
for a year. Thus, a given quantity of grain eaten directly will
feed 5 times as many people as it will if it is first fed to
livestock and then is eaten indirectly by humans in the form of
livestock products....

"Jules Verne was not the 'mad scientist' some thought him to
be. In several of his novels he showed great concern for the
dangers of technology/pollution caused by the oil industry/the
imminent extinction of whales, and in his 1901 novel 'The
Village in the Tree Tops' he exposed the slaughter of elephants
for their ivory!"
Thou shalt not kill.
My body has never been defiled by animal flesh.
After massive blood loss a dog's intestines are congested, while
in humans we see pallor and ischemia. No wonder conclusions
from dog experiments extrapolated to human beings frequently
brings about catastrophic results and regrettable failures, which
occurred with the earlier models of heart valves and in the first
several years of using the heart-lung machine. For the benefit
of medical science vivisection should be stopped. We must
put an end to the medical fraud of vivisection."
"Tenderness and pity should never be taken as weakness. Men
who have been great in the true sense have never been
indifferent to the rights, nor blind to the needs, of the helpless."
"The education of the heart should ever go hand in hand with
the cultivation of the mind. Kindness toward all sentient
creatures and compassion for suffering in all its forms are the
hallmarks of the enlightened community and the badge of the
cultural individual."
What good does it do you to test something [a vaccine] in a
monkey? You find five or six years from now that it works in
the monkey, and then you test it in humans and you realize that
humans behave totally differently from monkeys, so you‘ve
wasted five years.
I believe animals should be respected as citizens of this earth.
They should have the right to their own freedom, their own
families, and their own life.
As we put into all our schools more humane education, and
foster the spirit of justice and kindness toward the "lower"
creatures, just as soon shall we reach the roots not only of
cruelty but of crime.
"It ought to make all who profess evangelical Christianity
ashamed that the finest and most compassionate souls have not
been within their own borders, but rather amongst those whose
deepest thoughts have aroused the suspicion of heresy.
Evangelical Christianity, as people understand it, has absolutely
failed to kindle the Divine Compassion, and to realize itself in
a great fire of sacred devotion to all life."
My illness is due to my doctor's insistence that I drink milk, a
whitish fluid they force down helpless babies.
In the context that nearly all religion's scriptures promote
vegetarian diet: If one talks the talk he should walk the walk.
I have witnessed and tended to calves in rodeos who became
paralyzed and whose tracheas were totally or partially severed.
Slamming them to the ground has caused rupture of several
internal organs leading to a slow and agonizing death.
For many years the media have been afraid of the Goliath
power of the meat industry. (But David is coming!)
The thousands of people who have suffered food poisoning
after eating beef will, no doubt, appreciate that their beef was
aesthetically acceptable, even though it made them ill. `Lovely
to look at, dangerous to eat' is not a standard that is likely to
help beef sales.
Man is not the lord of all the world's animals. He is the
protector.
According to Dr Ray Greek: "Most pharmaceutical firms do
more testing than the government requires, so they can say in
court that they saw no effects like the one that killed the
plaintiff's wife. Officials will tell you off the record that they
rely on animal testing and think that it is a big factor in
protection from lawsuits." Or, the companies can turn around
and dismiss the animal tests as being unreliable in humans.
Either way, it is extremely hard for victims to take legal action
against them.
Contrary to the propaganda put forward by the medical
establishment to justify its work, animal experimentation does
not save human lives. As the industry's own evidence proves, it
does just the opposite.
Animals arrive at the slaughterhouse, many, in a 4D state
(dead, diseased, dying, debilitated.) (These animals sometimes
go into the pet food tankers).
We know from the truths of evolution and ecology that we are
all related and interdependent. Anthropomorphism (crediting
animals with human emotions and traits) is, however, outdated.
Rather we know that we are like animals.
The impact of countless hooves and mouths over the years has
done more to alter the type of vegetation and land forms of the
West than all the water projects, strip mines, power plants,
freeways, and subdivision developments combined.
"An old philosopher said to Monsieur Coignard, a Reverend
Father: 'You are a pig!' To which Abad Coignard answered:
'You flatter me, sir. But unfortunately, I'm only a man.'"
"To use animal welfare reforms as a 'springboard into animal
rights' has the new welfarists chasing their tails to decrease
pain/ suffering which are permitted in virtually unlimited
amounts and in virtually unlimited ways as long as there is an
identifiable human 'benefit'. This is what 'institutionalized
animal exploitation' means: ANY ANIMAL INTEREST,
HOWEVER FUNDAMENTAL, MAY BE SACRIFICED IN
ORDER TO SERVE HUMAN INTEREST, HOWEVER
TRIVIAL. We must ensure that incremental changes attack the
big problem - the property status of animals."
Nonhumans will continue to be exploited until there is a
revolution of the human spirit, and that will not happen without
visionaries trying to change the paradigm that has become
accustomed to and tolerant of patriarchal violence.
"We cannot talk simultaneously about animal rights and the
'humane' slaughter of animals."
"We need to reshape the movement as one of grassroots
activists, and not 'professional activists' who populate the
seemingly endless number of national animal rights groups. For
many people, activism has become writing a check to a national
group that is very pleased to have you leave it to them.
Although it is important to give financial support to worthy
efforts only, giving money is not enough and giving to the
wrong groups can actually do more harm than good."
All things of creation are children of the Father and thus
brothers of man. ... God wants us to help animals, if they need
help. Every creature in distress has the same right to be
protected.
If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from
the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will
deal likewise with their fellow men.
Not to hurt our humble brethren (the animals) is our first duty
to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher
mission--to be of service to them whenever they require it.

When about 16 Years of Age, I happen'd to meet with a Book
written by one Tryon, recommending a Vegetable Diet. I
determined to go into it. My Brother being yet unmarried, did
not keep House, but boarded himself & his Apprentices in

Inconveniency, and I was frequently chid for my singularity ....
Flesh eating is unprovoked murder.
There is much evidence showing that animals have
sophisticated systems for regulating their lives and that they are
much disturbed if they cannot control certain aspects of what
happens to them. There is also good evidence for elaborate
systems for detecting and responding to painful stimuli.
[Regarding animal carcinogenicity tests on saccharin]
Published risk estimates, starting from the same animal data
but using various [statistical] models, differ by factors of over
5,000,000.
[Regarding the difficulties of applying animal results to
humans] "There turn out to be many different ways to measure
this difference [in size]. For example, a man weighs 2800 times
as much as a mouse, eats 300 times as much per day and lives
40 times as long. Which factor should be used to rescale the
dose?
There are marked differences in carcinogenicity across sexes,
strains and species. Often, the-same chemical will cause one
kind of cancer in one experiment and another kind in another
experiment Indeed, the most hard-bitten advocates of animal
experiments do not claim to be able to predict which organ will
be affected in humans by a chemical that is carcinogenic in
animals.
The awful wrongs and sufferings forced upon the innocent,
faithful animal race, form the blackest chapter in the whole
world's history.
The oath I took as an inspector said if I ever saw anything
wrong I was supposted to report it. But today I can't report
anything.Today, if you blow your whistle, you're in trouble

every day I work.
"To err is human, to purr is feline. To err is human, to grrr is
canine."
Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom
the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.
Objectification reduces sensitivity. Thus cows are called beef
or head of cattle, pigs become pork, sheep mutton. The screams
are muted.. and living creatures become plastic wrapped
packages.
He that will not be merciful to his beast is a beast himself.
"Animal studies are done for legal reasons and not for scientific
reasons. the predictive value of such studies is meaningless--
which means our research may be meaningless."
"The ultimate dilemma with any animal model of human
disease is that it can never reflect the human situation with
complete accuracy."
"Nothing so endangers the fineness of the human heart as the
possession of power over others: nothing so corrodes it as the
callous or cruel exercise of that power: and the more helpless
the creature over whom power is cruelly or callously exercised,
the more the human heart is corroded. It is the recognition of
this truth which has brought the conscience of our age, and
with it the law, to say that we cannot any longer with impunity
regard ourselves as licensed torturers of the rest of creation;
that we cannot, for our own sake, afford it."
Once admit that we have the right to inflict unnecessary
suffering and you destroy the very basis of human society.
"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of
truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and
murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end,
they always fall - think of it, ALWAYS."
I abhor vivisection with my whole soul. All the scientific
discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no
consequence.
I do not regard flesh-food as necessary for us at any stage and
under any clime in which it is possible for human beings
ordinarily to live. I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our
species. We err in copying the lower animal world - if we are
superior to it
I want to realize brotherhood or identity not merely with the
beings called human, but I want to realize identity with all life,
even with such things as crawl upon earth.
In matters of conscience, the law of majority has no place.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged
by the way its animals are treated.
The more helpless the creature, the more that it is entitled to
protection by man from the cruelty of man.
To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a
human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb
for the sake of the human body.
Vivisection is the blackest of all the black crimes that man is at
present committing against God and His fair creation. It ill
becomes us to invoke in our daily prayers the blessings of God,
the Compassionate, if we in turn will not practice elementary
compassion towards our fellow creatures.
We should be able to refuse to live if the price of living be the
torture of sentient beings.
"...according to the Biblical account (Gen. 9), it is forbidden,
according to the law of the torah, to inflict pain upon any living
creature. On the contrary, it is our duty to relieve the pain of
any creature, even if it is ownerless or belongs to a non-Jew."
During a chronic study the problem may be complicated by the
presence of concomitant diseases; it is in fact known that acute
inflammation or the presence of a tumor may affect the kinetics
of chemical, thus altering their potential toxicity.
We have learned well how to treat cancer in mice and rats but
we still can‘t cure people.
"Reader! are you with the man-stealers in sympathy and
purpose, or on the side of their down-trodden victims? If with
the former, then are you the foe of God and man? If with the
latter, what are you prepared to do in their behalf? Be faithful,
be vigilant, be untiring in your efforts to break every yoke, and
let the oppressed go free. Come what may - cost what it may -
inscribe on our banner which you unfurl to the breeze, as your
religious and political motto: 'NO COMPROMISE WITH
SLAVERY! NO UNION WITH SLAVE HOLDERS!'"
I've always been very bonded to animals -- more so than most
people. (laughs) I don't think that they can defend themselves,
so we have to help them.
As for flesh, true, indeed, is it that man is sustained on flesh.
But how many things, let me ask, does man do every day which
are contrary to, or beside, his nature? So great, and so general,
is the perversion of his mode of life, which has, as it were,
eaten into his flesh by a sort of deadly contagion, that he
appears to have put on another disposition. Hence, the whole
care and concern of philosophy and moral instruction ought to
consist in leading men back to the paths of Nature. Man lives
very well upon flesh, you say, but, if he thinks this food to be
natural to him, why does he not use it as it is, as furnished to
him by Nature? But, in fact, he shrinks in horror from seizing
and rending living or even raw flesh with his teeth, and lights a
fire to change its natural and proper condition
What is clearer than that man is not furnished for hunting,
much less for eating, other animals? In one word, we seem to
be admirably admonished by Cicero that man was destined for
other things than for seizing and cutting the throats of other
animals. If you answer, "that may be said to be an industry
ordered by Nature, by which such weapons are invented," then,
behold, it is by the very same artificial instrument that men
make weapons for mutual slaughter. Do they this at the
instigation of Nature? Can a use so noxious be called natural?
Faculty is given by Nature, but it is our own fault that we make
a perverse use of it.
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb-bearing
seed which is upon the face of the earth, and every tree in
which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed: to you it shall be as
meat....
As custodians of the planet it is our responsibility to deal with
all species with kindness, love and compassion. That these
animals suffer through human cruelty is beyond understanding.
Please help to stop this madness.
People get offended by animal rights campaigns. It's ludicrous.
It's not as bad as mass animal death in a factory.
"We believe that it is high time that provision should be made
in the worship of our Church for the needs of our fellow
creatures outside the human race to be presented in prayer to
God."
Every civilizing step in history has been ridiculed as
'sentimental', 'impractical', or 'womanish', etc., by those whose
fun, profit or convenience was at stake.
Deer hunting would be fine sport, if only the deer had guns.
One is dearest to God who has no enemies among the living
beings, who is nonviolent to all creatures.
It appears that the first intention of the Maker was to have men
live on a strictly vegetarian diet. The very earliest periods of
Jewish history are marked with humanitarian conduct towards
the lower animal kingdom...It is clearly established that the
ancient Hebrews knew and perhaps were the first among men
to know, that animals feel and suffer pain.
I hate, despise your festivals, and I take no delight in your
solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt
offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the
offerings of well-being of your fatted animals I will not look
upon. Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not
listen to the melody of your harps. But let justice roll down like
waters and righteousness like an everflowing stream.
"The first public protest against cruelty to animals, per
Toynbee, a historian, was in 55 BC by the Roman people, to
save the life of an elephant."
"In the bad old days reference to Blacks/women/Jews/others
were in negative language which perpetuated poor treatment/
abuse/ exploitation of these people. Animals have suffered
more from negative language stereotyping than all the others,
and demeans them so constantly that they created an
environment that allows all sorts of cruelties, many too
horrendous to describe! An animal is 'it' instead of 'he' or 'she',
this perpetuates our view of them as 'things' rather than
individuals and is a major first step towards cutting them up for
meat and leather, testing drugs/cosmetics/ household products
on their bodies, and tearing off their coats for furs!!! Those
who have pets are referred to as 'owners' rather than
guardians/care givers/companions, reinforcing the idea that
they are property much as slaves were considered property.
Let's avoid these references: Dirty rat; filthy pig; acting like an
ass; dirty dog; she's a bitch; ugly duckling; there's more than
one way to skin a cat; behaving like an animal; making a
monkey out of someone; killing 2 birds with one stone;
workingthat humans and non-humans are identical... but the

lack of understanding that led to the slave trade is the same lack
of understanding many people have about animals today. When
slaves were brought over from Africa, many people believed
they were not humans, that they didn't have feelings. Many
people believe that primates and other animals don't have
feelings, too, but they do."
By and large students are taught that it is ethically acceptable to
perpetrate, in the name of science, what from the point of view
of the animals would certainly qualify as torture. By the time
[the students] arrive in the labs they have been programmed to
accept the suffering around them.
As humans, we need to have some morality and ethics to give
back to those innocent creatures from which we have taken and
exploited for our comforts and needs. We need to utilise our
intelligence and resources in protecting innocent animals,
instead of applying the same intelligence to destruct them.
The Bible's emphasis is on the good treatment of animals, and
not just the forbidding of cruel treatment.
What I build upon I shall be told is a folly that wise men are not
guilty of: I own it; but whilst it proceeds from a real passion
inherent in our nature, it is sufficient to demonstrate that we are
born with a repugnancy to the killing, and consequently the
eating of animals; for it is impossible that a natural appetite
should ever prompt us to act, or desire others to do, what we
have an aversion to, be it as foolish as it will.
"Humanity is already completely ripened for the supreme
punishment: the end of this shameless species is rapidly
approaching. We are really living the end of a species that
completed its cycle and has dug its own grave!"
In my opinion, one of the greatest animal-welfare problems is
the physical abuse of livestock during transportation.... Typical
abuses I have witnessed with alarming frequency are; hitting,
beating, use of badly maintained trucks, jabbing of short
objects into animals, and deliberate cruelty.
Killing an animal is not the same thing as mowing the grass. A
life ends. That's something you take seriously. What does the
word 'sacred' mean? You do not treat it as an ordinary thing.
Killing cattle is not the same as running grain through a mill.
That's one sad, unhappy, upset cow. She wants her baby.
Bellowing for it, hunting for it. It's like grieving,
mourning––not much written about it. People don't like to
allow them thoughts or feelings. (referring to a reaction of a
mother cow when her calf was taken from her)
Data from dose-response relationships are sometimes employed
to estimate the expected tumour incidence at dose levels very
much lower than those which could possibly be employed in
conventional [animal] experiments. A number of mathematical
models have been employed in such estimates and the results
obtained vary considerably. Despite these uncertainties - and
the possibly greater ones in extrapolating from animals to man -
such models are often employed in some quarters to estimate
the likely risk to man.
…some findings in colon cancer mice, which were very good
models, actually led to clinical trials in humans which resulted
in an increase in cancer.

Martin Luther King taught us all nonviolence. I was told to
extend nonviolence to the mother and her calf.
The debauchery in meat meals is an infamous injustice.
Kindness to all God's creatures is an absolute rock-bottom
necessity if peace and righteousness are to prevail.
"While Austria is introducing herself as a perfect host for
football fans, because of imprisonment of animal rights
activists, protests are being held in front of the embassies all
around the world. With every day it is becoming clearer that
this is a federal assault against the growing Animal rights
movement, including the misuse of laws and massive violation
of civil liberties."

[Animal carcinogenicity tests on new drugs are] inaccurate,
often insensitive and generally misleading.

I brainwashed youngsters into doing wrong. I want to say sorry
to children everywhere for selling out to concerns who make
millions by murdering animals. ("Ronald McDonald" quit and
publicly apologised).
Results from animal tests are not transferable between species,
and therefore cannot guarantee product safety for humans...In
reality these tests do not provide protection for consumers from
unsafe products, but rather they are used to protect corporations
from legal liability.
The violence done to Lebanon shall sweep over you. the havoc
done to its beasts shall break your own spirit.
The characteristic effects in leukaemia were detected solely as
a result of clinical observation. The various leukaemias in the
mouse and rat were relatively refractory to the influence of
urethane, and the remarkable effect in the human might have
eluded discovery if attention had been directed to the animal
alone. That illustrates the hazards of such work.
"Leukemia has been dramatically increasing, especially among
children, ever since the various modern 'therapies' have been
inflicted upon a frightened, artfully misinformed public.
Urethane has sometimes an inhibitory effect on human
leukemia in contrast to what animal experiments had shown."
In every country in the world, killing human beings is
condemned. The Buddhist precept of non-killing extends even
further, to include all living beings.
We must look deeply. When we buy something or consume
something, we may be participating in an act of killing. This
precept [non-killing] reflects our determination not to kill,
either directly or indirectly, and also to prevent others from
killing.
Vivisection has done little for the art of the doctor at the
bedside, but it has done immeasurable harm to the character
and mind of the rising generation of doctors.
It is strange to hear people talk of Humanitarianism, who are
members of societies for the prevention of cruelty to children
and animals, and who claim to be God-loving men and women,
but who, nevertheless, encourage by their patronage the killing
of animals merely to gratify the cravings of appetite.
Animal Liberation Front (ALF). The moderates in our
movement have precious little basis for reprehending those
who raid laboratories or engage in 'ecotage'. To paraphrase
Seneca - 'Extremism in the cause of compassion is no vice, and
moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.'
I gave up meat when I was twelve. One day I was cutting up a
chicken for my mom, and I hit a tumor with the knife. There
was [pus] and blood all over the place. That was enough for
me.
Every year tens of thousands of animals suffer and die in
laboratory tests of cosmetics and household products...despite
the fact that the test results do not help prevent or treat
accidental or purposeful misuse of the products. Please join me
in using your voice for those whose cries are forever sealed
behind the laboratory doors.
I've been vegan for about 10 and a half years. It's been all good.
I'm obviously much healthier
It is in fact hard to find a single, common solid neoplasm
[cancer] where management and expectation of cure has been
markedly affected by animal research. Most human cancers
differ from the artificially produced animal model
Family organization is broken and young animals are
increasingly being denied a mother to turn to for comfort and
for grooming. One of the saddest and most pathetic of farm
practices - inevitable at the present time for the supply of dairy
produce - is the separation of the calf from the cow at birth or
soon after.
In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to
be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals,
especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned
and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to
the last by otherwise intelligent people.
Our risk models are based on at least 50 assumptions, none of
which has been scientifically demonstrated. For example, we
assume that there is no difference between continuous (as in
animal tests) or intermittent (as in human experience) dosages.
But that ignores our growing knowledge of the way in which
DNA repairs the human system . . .We feed rodents `all-you-
can-eat' buffets every day, yet we know that caloric intake is the
single greatest contributing cause of cancer [in rodents]. In fact,
we found you can modify the cancer causing impact of one of
the most potent carcinogens from 90% down to less than 3%,
just by cutting caloric intake 20%.
There are only two categories of doctors and scientists who are
not opposed to vivisection: Those who don‘t know enough
about it and those who make money from it.
Vivisection is barbaric, useless, and a hindrance to scientific
progress.
This [eating animals] appears from the frequent hard-
heartedness and cruelty found among those persons whose
occupations engage them in destroying animal life, as well as
from the uneasiness which others feel in beholding the butchery
of animals. It is most evident in respect to the larger animals
and those with whom we have a familiar intercourse—such as
oxen, sheep, and domestic fowls, etc. They resemble us greatly
in the make of the body, in general, and in that of the particular
organs of circulation, respiration, digestion, etc.; also in the
formation of their intellects, memories and passions, and in the
signs of distress, fear, pain and death. They often, likewise, win
our affections by the marks of peculiar sagacity, by their
instincts, helplessness, innocence, nascent benevolence, etc.,
and if there be any glimmering hope of an ‗hereafter‘ for
them—if they should prove to be our brethren and sisters in
this higher sense—in immortality as well as mortality, in the
permanent principle of our minds as well as in the frail dust of
our bodies—this ought to be still further reason for tenderness
for them.

"Formerly it was the lie under the guise of religion that
deceived mankind; now it is the same lie under the guise of
science that is deceiving the whole world, and there is no
weapon against it other than reason. Reason teaches us that the
true healing of diseases and the maintenance of health consists
in freeing the body of impurities and keeping it clean."
Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned
with animals suffering? Because government is not. Why
not? Animals don't vote.
...and we have so far improved upon the custom of Adam and
Eve, that we generally furnish forth our feasts with a portion of
some delicate calf or lamb, whose unspotted innocence entitles
them to the happiness of becoming our sustenance.
It does take a little work to be a vegetarian& but it's so worth it,
oh it's so worth it!
They (the animals) have very positive rights because they are
God‘s creatures. If we have to speak with absolute accuracy we
must say that God has the right to have all His creatures treated
with proper respect. Nobody should therefore carelessly repeat
the old saying that animals have no rights. This could easily
lead to wanton cruelty … The difficulty is that many people do
not realise the extent to which cruelty to animals is practised as
a matter of business … The best and most experienced teachers
… talk of kindness to animals. Christians have a duty not only
to refrain from doing harm but also to do positive good.
James, the brother of the Lord ... was holy from his mother‘s
womb; and he drank no wine nor strong drink, nor did he eat
meat.

of Taxi, asked by Larry King.. "Is that true... that Danny

I hope to make people realise how totally helpless a animals
are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must be that we
will be kind and take care of their needs...[They] are an
obligation put on us, a responsibility we have no right to
neglect, or violate by cruelty.
The last thing my father told me before he was taken to his
death... was to love all creation.
Jews will move increasingly to vegetarianism out of their own
deepening knowledge of what their tradition commands...Man's
carnivorous nature is not taken for granted or praised in the
fundamental teachings of Judaism...A whole galaxy of central
rabbinic and spiritual leaders...has been affirming
vegetarianism as the ultimate meaning of Jewish moral
teaching.
… Predictions of carcinogenicity from laboratory animals are
without meaning for there is no evidence that the studies were
conducted in a way that took into consideration the
pharmacodynamics in the species investigated, or with any
appreciation of end organ sensitivity (with respect to
contraceptive steroids).
Unfortunately, extrapolations from animal results to man
remains largely problematic and no amount of mathematical
sophistication can render such extrapolation more certain. .
The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body
of each is different.
Here you are faced with G-d's teaching, which obliges you not
only to refrain from inflicting unnecessary pain on any animal,
but to help and, when you can, to lessen the pain whenever you
see an animal suffering, even through no fault of yours. … As
G-d is merciful, so you also be merciful. As he loves and cares
for all His creatures and His children and are related to Him,
because He is their Father, so you also love all His creatures as
your brethren. Let their joys be your joys, and their sorrows
yours. Love them and with every power which G-d gives you,
work for their welfare and benefit, because they are the
children of your G-d, because they are your brothers and sisters.

There are probably no creatures that require more the protective
Divine word against the presumption of man than the animals,
which like man have sensations and instincts, but whose body
and powers are nevertheless subservient to man. In relation to
them man so easily forgets that injured animal muscle twitches
just like human muscle, that the maltreated nerves of an animal
sicken like human nerves, that the animal being is just as
sensitive to cuts, blows, and beating as man. Thus man
becomes the torturer of the animal soul.
"Above all, those to whom the care of young minds has been
entrusted should see to it that they respect both the smallest and
largest animals as beings which, like people, have been
summoned to the joy of life..."
"Life is as dear to others as it is to oneself. Good men bear this
in mind and are merciful to all living creatures."
Good men extend their pity, even unto the most despicable
animals. The moon does not withhold the light, even from the
cottage of a Chandala [outcast]. … Those who have forsaken
the killing of all; those who are helpmates to all; those who are
a sanctuary to all; those men are in the way of heaven. … Not
to kill is a supreme duty … What is religion? Compassion for
all things which have life.
We sacrificed daily from one to three dogs, besides rabbits and
other animals, and after four years experience, I am of the
opinion that not one of these experiments on animals was
justified or necessary.
I am not basically a conservationist. When the last great whale
is slaughtered, as it surely will be, the whales' suffering will be
over. This is not the whales' loss, but man's. I am not concerned
about the wiping out of a species - this is man's folly - I have
only one concern, the suffering which we deliberately inflict
upon animals whilst they live.
[The apostle St.] Peter said, ‗I live on olives and bread to which
I rarely only add vegetables.‘ … [For] the unnatural eating of
meats is as polluting as the heathen worship of devils, with its
sacrifices and its impure feasts, through participation in it a
man becomes a fellow eater with devils.


People must do what they consider proper in response to my
death. But let's not forget that to stop the Nazis was necessary
to use a high level of violence.'


Risk assessment policy that relies solely on screening bio-assay
results from the most sensitive species is not based on scientific
principles. Neither is it credible or reliable.
"Cruelty practiced as a matter of social principle or public
policy, and presented to the community as a means to a higher
goal is the most obscene and decadent phenomenon of any
civilization."
"What domestication and human 'help' (read slavery) does to
animals. From Taoism: 'A carefree band of horses galloped
spiritedly around the hills and meadows. They dined on green
grass and drank clear water form cool streams. Living freely,
naturally and contentedly. Along came a horse-trainer named
Polo. He captured the unsuspecting horses, declaring, 'I know
what is best for them.' He bridled the horses, decorated them
with cheap ornaments, gave them numbers. Then he made them
perform in public. They were forced to trot about in precise
formation to the crackling commands of a whip. The once-
carefree horses turned into mechanical performers tired, sick,
afraid..."
In the relations of humans with the animals, with the flowers,
with all the objects of creation, there is a whole great ethic
scarcely seen as yet.
Cruelty to animals is one of the most significant vices of a low
and ignoble people.Wherever one notices them, they constitute
a sure sign of ignorance and brutality which cannot be painted
over even by all the evidence of wealth and luxury. Cruelty to
animals cannot exist together with true education and true
learning.
Very few people question that it is an act of kindness to put an
animal painlessly to death if it is injured beyond possibility of a
pain-free future; or that it is better to neuter pets than to allow
thousands of unwanted litters to be born. But mention it might
be better for a breeding sow in a farrowing crate if she had
never been born, and you will be met with chants of "Any life
is better than no life". Humans have an odd way of finding
pleasure in activities that bring them pleasure, or profit, or
both.
We live in a world which is full of misery and ignorance, and
the plain duty of each and all of us is to try to make the little
corner he can influence somewhat less miserable and somewhat
less ignorant than it was before he entered it.
"Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organised to
serve human health, but only to serve itself as an institution. It
makes more people sick than it heals."
Deliberate cruelty to our defenseless and beautiful little cousins
is surely one of the meanest and most detestable vices of which
a human being can be guilty.
We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have
treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that
beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they
would depict the Devil in human form.
Of what use are all your sacrifices to Me? I have had enough of
the roasted carcasses of rams and of the fat of fattened beasts. I
take no pleasure in the blood of calves, lambs and goats . When
you spread out your hands, I close My eyes to you; despite
however much you pray, I will not listen. Your hands are full of
blood! Wash yourselves clean! Put away your misdeeds from
before My eyes and stop doing evil.
He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a
lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck. Yea, they have chosen their
own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
Change is needed. Thirty years of experience with
subcutaneous xenografts, human tumors implanted under the
skin of the mouse, have satisfied few because so many drugs
that cure cancer in these mice fail to help humans. A 2004
analysis in the Journal of the American Medical Association
showed that only 3.8% of patients in phase I cancer drug trials
between 1991 and 2002 achieved an objective clinical response
— and the response rate is declining. Almost all drugs tried in
humans work against subcutaneous xenografts in mice. ―How
many more negative data do you want? It‘s very depressing.‖
"Break the legs of evil custom."
One might expect that these animals would mimic human
symptoms, not just the genetic mutations. In fact, that is usually
the exception, not the rule.
I spoke often in Congress against the war in Vietnam.. and
commented on congresspersons hiding from the reality of war
by saying 'many eat the meat but few go to the slaughterhouse'.
I said it so often I became a vegetarian.
I know hundreds of people who have spent years and thousands
of dollars on tests looking for ulcers or spastic bowels. I tell
them to lay off all dairy products for two weeks. The results are
usually so striking that it changes thier lives.
Flesh can not be procured without causing destruction of life;
one who uses flesh, therefore, commits hisma (injury)

A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose

I tremble for my species when I reflect that God is just.
If a nation expects to be both ignorant and free in a state of
civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against

SIR,--Your letter of February the 18th came to hand on the 1st
instant; and the request of the history of my physical habits
would have puzzled me not a little, had it not been for the
model with which you accompanied it, of Doctor Rush's
answer to a similar inquiry. I live so much like other people,
that I might refer to ordinary life as a history of my own. Like
my friend the Doctor, I have lived temperately, eating very little
animal food, and that not as an aliment, so much as a
condiment for the vegetables, which constitute my principle
diet.
"A drug is a substance that, when injected into a rat, produces a
scientific paper."
"Animal studies can neither prove or guarantee the safety of
any drug. They are not a substitute for testing in humans".-
The eating of meat was unknown up to the big flood, but since
the flood they have put the strings and stinking juices of animal
meat into our mouths, just as they threw in front of the
grumbling sensual people in the desert. Jesus Christ, who
appeared when the time had been fulfilled, has again joined the
end with the beginning, so that it is no longer allowed for us to
eat animal meat.
Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father's good
pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Whatsoever you have done to these the least of my brethren
you have done unto me.
A change in our diet could change our destiny.
Disease is due to lack of awareness whereas ageing is due to
our faulty diet.
In war we do not eat what we kill, lest it should be considered
barbarous.
Is there any difference between Hitler's camp and our slaughter-
houses?
Other creatures kill mainly for survival whereas we kill mainly
for self-gratification.
Our diet should be based on harmlessness.
Slaughter of animals for food can exist only in a barbaric
society.
Strange, that man should attribute cannibalism only to those,
who eat the flesh of their own kind.
The diet can reveal much of a man's personality.
There can never be peace and happiness in the world so long as
we exploit other living creatures for food or otherwise.
We have built slaughter houses for animals and hospitals for
ourselves.
What higher honour can God bestow upon us, than to create
amongst us such harmless creatures as ants.
 It is forbidden to tie the legs of a beast or of a bird in a manner
as to cause them pain.
 When horses, drawing a cart, come to a rough road or a steep
hill, and it is hard for them to draw the cart without help, it is
our duty to help them, even when they belong to a non-Jew,
because of the precept not to be cruel to animals, lest the owner
smite them to force them to draw more than their
strength permits.
It is forbidden, according to the law of the Torah, to inflict pain
upon any living creature. On the contrary, it is our duty to
relieve the pain of any creature, even if it is ownerless or
belongs to a non-Jew.
"You never soar so high as when you stoop down to help a
child or an animal."
1-3 Butadiene, an important industrial chemical and a common
environmental air pollutant, has been shown to be a weak
carcinogen in the rat, but a potent carcinogen in the B6C3F1
mouse. This species difference makes risk extrapolation to
humans difficult, and the underlying mechanism must be
clarified before meaningful risk extrapolation to humans can be
made.
Man must never hurt animals, must never ill-treat them nor
torture them physically because they are sensitive creatures. If
anyone told me that to achieve my purpose it would be
sufficient to kill an ant, I would not do it.
For 39 agents with both xenograft data and Phase II clinical
trials results available, in vivo activity in a particular histology
in a tumour model did not closely correlate with activity in the
same human cancer histology, casting doubt on the
correspondence of the pre-clinical models to clinical results.
My own medical perspective is that animal cancer research
should be regarded as the scientific equivalent of gossip – with
about the same chance of turning out to be true, i.e. truly
effective in humans. Some gossip turns out to be true, but most
of it does not…and gossip can cause great anguish for those
affected, in this case millions of desperate cancer patients
worldwide.
An infallible characteristic of meanness is cruelty. Men who
have practiced tortures on animals without pity, relating them
without shame, how can they still hold their heads among
human beings?
In some roles I have to wear fur, and I always make sure it's
fake, like in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. Faux
fur is great because it shows people that faux can look
fabulous.
Cruelty to dumb animals is one of the distinguishing vices of
low and base minds. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark
of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external
advantages of wealth, splendour, and nobility, cannot
obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility.
At present it is a rare person that emerges from medical training
with his or her humanity intact.

During my medical education at the University of Basel I found
vivisection horrible, barbarous, and above all unnecessary.

Now I can look at you in peace; I don't eat you anymore.
Looking at fish in aquarium
"The prescription drugs you take are being tested on you".
Given that many of these investigational anticancer drugs
eventually fail, the animal models on which clinical trials are
predicated must at best be limited in power, and at worst wildly
inaccurate.
If [man] is not to stifle his human feelings, he must practice
kindness towards animals, for he who is cruel to animals
becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the
heart of a man by his treatment of animals.
"You and I are being lied to by the animal research
establishment when they tell us all this cruelty is "necessary"
for scientific research. We are being fed this lie by people who
make a living of their practices behind closed doors at
universities and scientific institutes: by people who are deeply
interested in keeping things in this six-billion-a-year business
just the way they are."
Significant athersclerosis is rare in peoples whose diet over the
life span is predominantly vegetarian and low in calories, total
lipids, saturated lipids and cholesterol.
"I'm the only one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but
still I can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I
can do!"
A dead cow or sheep lying in the pasture is recognized as
carrion. The same sort of carcass dressed and hung up in a
butchers stall passes as food.
How can you eat anything with eyes?
And if your heart is straight with God, then every creature shall
be to you a mirror of life and a book of holy doctrine, for there
is no creature so little or so vile, that he does not represent the
goodness of God.
"Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve
the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth
a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million
different centers of energy and daring, these ripples build a
current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression
and resistance."
Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one
person can do against the enormous array of the world's ills,
misery, ignorance, and violence. Few will have the greatness to
bend history, but each of us can work to change a small portion
of events. And in the total of all those acts will be written the
history of a generation.
I was watching an HBO special on eating habits and different
cultures, and they showed in China how people eat cats, and
I'm really fond of cats, and I happened to be sitting on the
couch with my cat, and once I saw that, it just put everything in
perspective. If I wouldn't eat my cat what's the difference
[between] eating a cat or a cow? If certain animals are
considered lesser than, so are certain people and that's not
really fair. And the root of that is to consider life on equal
terms across the board.
"When people decide an animal is a nuisance, they are basically
putting a death penalty on that animal."
The philosophy behind vivisection, the sacrifice of creatures we
regard as 'inferior' beings, differs little from that behind the
concentration camp or the slave trader.
I never really liked meat. I was a child that had to be forced to
eat my meat. Whatever you ate before that you loved like
turkey slices they've got a substitute now that's not hard to find.
"If a man has not discovered something he will die for, he is
not fit to live."
"And there comes a time when one must take a position that is
neither safe, nor political, nor popular, but he must take it
because his conscience tells him that it is right."
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in
moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at
times of challenge and controversy.
Most of us are able to obtain an abundance of nonflesh foods
that can keep us robustly healthy our whole lives. With such a
variety of nonanimal foods available, who would choose to
support the slaughter mills and foster the misery involved in
factory farming by continuing to eat flesh? . . . It is sad to see
how many American Buddhists are managing to find a self-
satisfying accommodation to eating meat . . . [In the first
Bodhisattva vow of Mahayana Buddhism] we commit our
compassion to all beings, not just humans. Eschewing meat is
one way to express that commitment to the welfare of other
creatures.
Our meat-centered diet and the large-scale animal agriculture
that supports it, is devastating all the life support systems upon
which we depend - the topsoil, the forests, the rivers, the
ground water, the air and the oceans. Evolving our diet away
from the current animal-based diet toward a plant-based diet is
arguably the single most effective action we can take as
individuals and as a society to improve our health and to
stabilize our endangered eco-system.
People who have red meat (trimmed or untrimmed) as a regular
feature of their diets suffer in far greater numbers from heart
attacks and strokes.
There is strong medical evidence that complete freedom from
eating animal flesh or cow's milk products is a gateway to
optimal nutritional health.
The history of cancer research has been a history of curing
cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for
decades, and it simply didn‘t work in humans.
We have cured mice of cancer for decades--and it simply didn't
work in humans.
The essential, but often well-disguised, purpose of intelligent
design, is to preserve the myth of a separate, divine creation for
humans in the belief that only that can explain who we are. But
there is a destructive hubris, a fearful arrogance, in that myth. It
sets us apart from nature, except to dominate it. It misses both
the grace and the moral depth of knowing that humans have
only the same stake, the same right, in the Earth as every other
creature that has ever lived here. There is a righteousness - a
responsibility - in the deep, ancestral origins we share with all
of life.
Cow's milk is not suited for human consumption. Milk causes
constipation, biliousness, coated tongue, headache, and these
are the symptoms of intestinal auto-intoxication.
Doctors who speak out in favour of vivisection do not deserve
any recognition in society, all the more so since their brutality
is apparent not only during such experiments, but also in their
practical medical lives. They are mostly men who stop at
nothing in order to satisfy their ruthless and unfeeling lust for
honours and gain.
The problem with animal carcinogenicity tests is not their lack
of sensitivity for human carcinogens, but rather their lack of
human specificity. A positive result has poor predictive value
for humans.
Your choice of diet can influence your long term health
prospects more than any other action you might take.
There is not an animal on the earth, nor a flying creature on two
wings, but they are people like unto you.
" For 35 years U.S. scientists labouring in the National
Cancer Institute's screening programme have injected more
than 400,000 chemicals into leukemic mice, hoping to find
chemotherapies that would help solve the riddles of cancer...
We've been using the wrong system as the screening device. "
When a man wantonly destroys one of the works of man we
call him a vandal. When he destroys one of the works of god
we call him a sportsman.
"As a necessary component of the living world, we must extend
compassion to one another and to every living thing."
True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come
to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind's true
moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from
view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its
mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a
fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others
stem from it.
"A society remotely worth its salt eventually has to come to
grips with the barbarism practiced upon helpless creatures in
the name of scientific experimentation, tastier/tenderer meat, or
more and larger eggs!"
"Whether we live just a few years or a whole century, it would
be truly regrettable and sad if we were to spend that time
aggravating the problems that afflict other people, animals, and
the environment. The most important thing is to be a good
human being."
I do not see any reason why animals should be slaughtered to
serve as human diet when there are so many substitutes. After
all, man can live without meat. It is only some carnivorous
animals that have to subsist on flesh.
In order to satisfy one human stomach, so many lives are taken
away. We must promote vegetarianism. It is extremely
important.
In our approach to life, be it pragmatic or otherwise, the
ultimate truth that confronts us squarely and unmistakably is
the desire for peace, security and happiness. Different forms of
life in different aspects of existence make up the teeming
denizens of this earth of ours. And, no matter whether they
belong to the higher group as human beings or to the lower
group, the animals, all beings primarily seek peace, comfort
and security. Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man.
Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to
live and not to die, so do other creatures.
Killing animals for sport, for pleasure, for adventures, and for
hides and furs is a phenomenon which is at once disgusting and
distressing. There is no justification in indulging in such acts of
brutality.
Whenever I visit a market and see the chickens crowded
together in tiny cages that give them no room to move around
and spread their wings and the fish slowly drowning in the air,
my heart goes out to them. People have to learn to think about
animals in a different way, as sentient beings who love life and
fear death. I urge everyone who can to adopt a compassionate
vegetarian diet.
"We have not two hearts - one for the animals, and the other for
man... In the cruelty toward the former and the cruelty toward
the latter, there is no other difference than in the victim."
I grew up in cattle country-that's why I became a vegetarian.
Meat stinks, for the animals, the environment, and your health.
If you knew how meat was made, you'd probably lose your
lunch.
We all love animals. Why do we call some "pets" and others
"dinner?"
For the sake of love of purity, the Bodhisattva should refrain
from eating flesh, which is born of semen, blood, etc. For fear
of causing terror to living beings let the Bodhisattva, who is
disciplining himself to attain compassion, refrain from eating
flesh... It is not true that meat is proper food and permissible
when the animal was not killed by himself, when he did not
order others to kill it, when it was not specially meant for him.
Again, there may be some people in the future who ... being
under the influence of the taste for meat will string together in
various ways sophistic arguments to defend meat eating. But...
meat eating in any form, in any manner, and in any place is
unconditionally and once for all prohibited... Meat eating I have
not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.
Our food system takes abundant grain, which people can't
afford, and shrinks it into meat, which better-off people will
pay for.
In a lunch session at the slaughterhouse, a lamb jumped out of
its pen and came unnoticed up to some slaughtermen who were
sitting in a circle eating some sandwiches; the lamb approached
and nibbled a small piece of lettuce that a man was holding in
his hand. The men gave the lamb some more lettuce and when
the lunch period was over they were so affected by the action of
the lamb that not one of them was prepared to kill this creature,
and it had to be sent away elsewhere - showing that within each
human soul there is an element of pity, compassion and love in
varying degrees. It is our duty to encourage the higher qualities
to bloom and blossom wherever possible in each individual.

Extrapolating from one species to another is fraught with
uncertainty... For almost all of- the chemicals tested to date,
rodent bio-assays have not been cost-effective. They give
limited and uncertain information on carcinogenicity, generally
give no indication of mechanism of action, and require years to
complete." [They are] "rarely the best approach for deciding
whether to classify a chemical as a human carcinogen.
As we become increasingly aware of the finite limits to the
carrying capacity of the planet, the inefficiency of converting
eight or nine kilograms of grain protein into one kilogram of
animal protein for human consumption would by itself be
sufficient argument against continuation of our present dietary
habits. When one adds in the abuse of animals inherent to
factory farming methods, the depletion and contamination of
aquifers, the intense use of grain crops and grazing areas, and
the release of methane and other greenhouse gases into the
atmosphere, the case against our meat-eating behavior becomes
overwhelming. And that is before we factor in the effects of
animal fats - an inescapable component of meat and poultry -
on human health.
As soon as I realized that I didn't need meat to survive or to be
in good health, I began to see how forlorn it all is. If only we
had a different mentality about the drama of the cowboy and
the range and all the rest of it. It's a very romantic notion, an
entrenched part of American culture, but I've seen, for example,
pigs waiting to be slaughtered, and their hysteria and panic was
something I shall never forget.
"The argument from man is so much more convincing than the
argument from mice - which indeed, may be completely
misleading, as in the case of urethane, which has some
inhibitory action on human tumours, but a marked, though
temporary one on chronic human leukemias."
"Even animals who sometimes seem unlovable to humans,
have also feelings. They can suffer just as we do."
I venture to maintain that there are multitudes to whom the
necessity of discharging the duties of a butcher would be so
inexpressibly painful and revolting, that if they could obtain a
flesh diet on no other condition, they would relinquish it
forever.
An individual animal doesn't care if its species is facing
extinction - it cares if it is feeling pain.
Each snowflake in an avalanche pleads not guilty.
"He is a slave who dare not be in the right with two or three;
he's a slave who dare not choose hatred, slander and abuse,
rather than in silence shrink from the truth he needs must think.
There's no slavery more degrading to character than the ignoble
fear of standing for truth and justice without the multitudes
clamoring approbation and support."
I would not want to get to know a pig very well if I intended to
eat him.
As always the Church has placed herself, through the voice of
her pontiff, at the head of this movement. It is for her to direct
it wherever she can make herself heard.
I don't eat chicken anymore. I won't eat it. I won't allow it in my
house.
Whether hunting is right or wrong, a spiritual experience, or an
outlet for the killer instinct, one thing it is not is a sport. Sport
is when individuals or teams compete against each other under
equal circumstances to determine who is better at a given game
or endeavor. Hunting will be a sport when deer, elk, bears, and
ducks are... given 12-gauge shotguns. Bet we'd see a lot fewer
drunk yahoos (live ones, anyway) in the woods if that
happened.
When I was twelve, I went hunting with my father and we shot
a bird. He was laying there and something struck me. Why do
we call this fun to kill this creature [who] was as happy as I
was when I woke up this morning.
...we sacrifice other species to our own not because our own
has any objective metaphysical privilege over others, but
simply because it is ours. It may be very natural to have this
loyalty to our own species, but let us hear no more from the
naturalists about the "sentimentality" of anti-vivisectionists. If
loyalty to our own species--preference for man simply because
we are men--is not sentiment, then what is?
If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and
because we are backing our own side in the struggle for
existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals,
enemies, or capitalist for the same reasons.
"He who sees cruelty and does nothing about it is himself
cruel."
"To sin by silence when they should protest, makes cowards of
men."
I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is
the way of a whole human being.
I care not much for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not
the better for it.
I could not have slept tonight if I had left that helpless little
creature to perish on the ground." (Reply to friends who chided
him for delaying them by stopping to return a fledgling to its
nest.)
"I refer to those who describe murders/riots/panics and other
catastrophes perpetrated by humans, and who say to be 'acting
like animals.' I refer specifically to comments regarding a
recent ship hijacking where it was said that the terrorists acted
like 'cowardly animals.' These terrorists and guerrilla acts are
NOT animal in nature - they are HUMAN in nature. As one
who sees the balance, beauty and meaning of the world in
which nonhuman animals must face life-or-death situations
everyday just to survive and perpetuate their species, I grossly
resent and take offense at these statements! When was the last
time we saw a gorilla hijack a plane? A pod of whales hijack an
ocean liner? A group of nonhuman animals walk down the
street and terrorize the neighborhood??? Human animals are
the terrorists and guerrillas when they go into the nonhuman
animals' homes to slaughter them for fur coats, hunting
trophies, plumage and all the other atrocious reasons society
gives for the gross lack of respect for life, and murder of our
fellow creatures inhabiting this world. If and when man comes
off his ego trip, maybe he'll see just how insignificant he is to
the total scheme of beings on this planet in which ALL
Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities,
nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's
sight
Christian theology provides some of the best arguments for
respecting animal life and for taking seriously animals as
partners with us within God's creation. It may be ironical that
this tradition, once thought of as the bastion of human moral
exclusivity, should now be seen as the seed-bed for a creative
understanding of animal liberation.
Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion
are in a special position to understand the awfulness of
innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute
identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable,
but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent
suffering.
To stand for Christ is to stand against evil of cruelty inflicted
on those who are weak, vulnerable, unprotected, undefended,
morally innocent, and in that class we must unambiguously
include animals.
The creatures man uses and, so often abuses, are voiceless and
helpless. We are not. We have pens with which to write to
politicians and retailers, voices with which to speak out,
shopping choices which can have a major impact on the
outcome of the debate, organisations to join, even, on
appropriate occasions, banners to carry.
This tendency [to cruelty] should be watched in them
[children], and if they incline to any such cruelty, they should
be taught the contrary usage. For the custom of tormenting and
killing other animals will, by degrees, harden their hearts even
towards men.... And they, who delight in the suffering and
destruction of inferior creatures, will not be apt to be very
compassionate or benign to those of their own kind. Children
should from the beginning be brought up in an abhorrence of
killing or tormenting living beings.... And indeed, I think
people from their cradles should be tender to all sensible
creatures.... All the entertainment and talk of History is of
nothing but fighting and killing; and the honour and renown
that is bestowed on conquerors, who, for the most part, are but
the great butchers of mankind, further mislead youth.
Animal rights has never been about equal rights, but about least
harm and rights as fits the species. So a chicken does not need
the right to vote, but perhaps should have the right to spread
her wings, which is a right that is not applicable to humans.
The animal rights movement I belong to does not have the time
or the inclination to criticize the work of others, it understands
that working towards our abolitionist goals in incremental steps
is the only way we will move ahead, and it has no use for labels
- it is too busy taking action. The animal rights movement I
belong to is united in support of our common goals rather than
squabbling over attention or money, it has no room for ego or
ivory tower activists with personal agendas - it understands the
value of working together!
It is difficult to entertain a warm feeling for a "medical man"
who straps dogs to a table, cuts their vocal cords, and spends an
interesting day or week slowly vivisecting or dismembering
them.
The existence of organized cruelty - that is, cruelty practiced as
a matter of social principle or public policy, and presented to
the community as a means of a higher goal - is the most
obscene and decadent phenomenon of any civilization.
…all flesh shall see the salvation of God
What was the necessity for the entire procedure of ritual
slaughter? For the sake of self-discipline. It is far more
appropriate for man not to eat meat; only if he has a strong
desire for meat does the Torah permit it, and even this only
after the trouble and inconvenience necessary to satisfy his
desire. Perhaps because of the bother and annoyance of the
whole procedure, he will be restrained from such a strong and
uncontrollable desire for meat.
"Be thou comforted, little dog, Thou too in Resurrection shall
have a little golden tail."
100,000 cows in the U.S. are alive at night and dead in the
morning. These cows on the ground are ground into feed,
making their fellows not only carnivores but cannibals. Europe
after Mad Cows' Disease has banned this practice. The U.S has
not yet.
Family farmers are victims of public policy that gives
preference to feeding animals over feeding people. This has
encouraged the cheap grain policy of this nation and has made
the Beef Cartel the biggest hog at the trough.
Most Americans don't have any idea how well the Department
of Agriculture protects the grower at the expense of the
consumer. When a chemical is banned from use, a farmer or
livestock operator who has the chemical in stock has a choice:
either to lose money by disposing of the product, or to use it
and take the risk of getting caught breaking the law. How
severe is that risk? Well, if you use a banned product in your
cattle feed, you have to face the prospect that the government is
going to inspect one out of every 250,000 carcasses. They will
test this carcass not for all banned substances, but just for a
small fraction of them. And even if they detect some residue of
a banned substance, and even if they're able to trace the carcass
to the ranch that produced it, the guilty rancher is likely at most
to receive a stern letter with a strongly worded warning. I never
met a rancher who suffered in any way from breaking any
regulation meant to protect the safety of our meat. The whole
procedure is, in short, a charade.
Cruelty to animals can become violence to humans.
"Man Without Enemies: You have no enemies you say? Alas,
my friend, the boast is poor. He who has mingled in the fray Of
duty, that the brave endure, Must have made foes. If you have
none, Small is the work that you have done. You've hit no
traitor on the hip, You've dashed no cup from perjured lip,
You've never turned the wrong to right, You've been a coward
in the fight."
Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and
the answer is: 'Because the animals are like us.' Ask the
experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals,
and the answer is: 'Because the animals are not like us.' Animal
experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.
He who desires to augment his own flesh by eating the flesh of
other creatures lives in misery in whatever species he may take
his birth.
This is the sum of duty: do naught to others which if done to
thee, would cause thee pain.
The eating of meat extinguishes the seed of great compassion.
At Ramana's ashram, he established the rule that 1st would be
fed the animals, then the beggars, next the visitors, succeeded
by the ashram residents. Finally when all else had eaten,
Ramana took food.
All beings seek for happiness; so let your compassion extend
itself to all.
 He who harms animals has not understood or renounced deeds
of sin... Those whose minds are at peace and who are free from
passions do not desire to live at the expense of others.
May all that have life be delivered from suffering.
Non-violence and kindness to living beings is kindness to
oneself. For thereby one's own self is saved from various kinds
of sins and resultant sufferings and is able to secure his own
welfare.
Unless we live with non-violence and reverence for all living
beings in our hearts, all our humaneness and acts of goodness,
all our vows, virtues, and knowledge, all our practices to give
up greed and acquisitiveness are meaningless and useless.
Meat is dirty. I wouldn't touch a hot dog without a condom on
it.
It should not be believed that all beings exist for the sake of the
existence of man. On the contrary, all the other beings too have
been intended for their own sakes and not for the sake of
anything else . . . there is no difference between the pain of
humans and the pain of other living beings, since the love and
tenderness of the mother for the young are not produced by
reasoning, but by feeling, and this faculty exists not only in
humans but in most living beings.
The tzaddik (righteous person) acts according to the laws of
justice; not only does he act according to these laws with
human beings, but also with animals.
People are very complacent with their animal models. But this
begs the question of whether there exists a good model of
cancer.
Our obligation and our moral duty is to Him who made (the
animals) … And in giving dominion over creatures to man, He
gave it subject to the condition that they should be used in
conformity with His own perfections … and among those
perfections, one is, most profoundly, that of eternal mercy.
Meat cannot be obtained without injury to animals, and the
slaughter of animals obstructs the way to Heaven; let him
therefore shun the use of meat. … He who injures harmless
beings from a wish to give himself pleasure, never finds
happiness, neither living nor dead. He who does not seek to
cause the sufferings of bonds and death to living creatures, but
desires the good of all, obtains endless bliss. He who does not
injure any creature, obtains without an effort what he thinks of,
what he undertakes, and what he fixes his mind on. He who
does not eat meat becomes dear to men, and will not be
tormented by diseases. He who permits the slaughter of an
animal, he who kills it, he who cuts it up, he who buys or sells
meat, he who cooks it, he who serves it up, and he who eats it,
are all slayers. There is no greater sinner than that man who
seeks to increase the bulk of his own flesh by the flesh of other
beings. … Thus having well considered the disgusting origin of
meat and the cruelty of fettering and slaying of corporeal
beings, let him entirely abstain from eating flesh.
Some say vegetarianism is an alternative diet.. but it is the
original diet, the plan designed by God.
Spaying is a compromise in terms of reverence for life, but
perhaps a necessary one in a society which kills millions of
dogs and cats a year in "animal shelters".
With each egg we eat we imprison a chicken 25 to 32 hours in
a cage.
I place spiders out of the house. I don't like to kill them.
Lord, help me to become the person my dog believes me to be.
More and more we realize that vegetarian diet is a good idea.
The transfatty acids (found in animal products and cooked oils)
are a factor in breast cancer.
Ironically, in 1933, the Nazi's passed a law for the protection of
animals. The law cited the prevention of cruelty and
indifference to animals as one of the highest moral values of a
people, animal experimentation was unthinkable, but human
experimentations were acceptable. The victims of the crime of
these doctors numbered into the thousands.
"Zoologists and others from the scientific industry, plus so-
called 'animal lovers' are trying to breed rare species of animals
back from the brink of extinction. This means a lot of genetic
and medical manipulation, to say nothing of snatching them
from their own families and habitats, and keeping them in
captivity for exploitation. Any nearly extinct species which
makes a 'comeback' in population, will become accessible and
disposable and they will be hunted back into low population
again. Spaying or neutering is more sensible than breeding...
and this goes for everyone, people too!"
"In 500 years (maybe less) people will look back on us and
wonder about many things. No doubt behavior we consider
normal today will inspire horror in our more enlightened
successors. I am completely opposed to any form of animal
exploitation, including animal experimentation, keeping
animals in zoos or in circuses, (indeed any form of captivity for
animals), the use of leather, fur, wool and silk. I also have
begun to wonder whether any domesticated animal can lead an
ideal life in the company of humans."
Whatever you do unto the least of my brothers, you do it unto
me.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
"The World Health Organisation which had been running their
13-year smallpox eradication programme in the third world
until 1980 wondered if the vaccinations were connected to the
AIDS pandemic. They hired an outside consultant to do a
study on it. He did and said... 'Yes your suspicion is correct.'
But the report was buried by the WHO and so the consultant
came to us... His credentials can not be dismissed... We are not
giving his name, but the WHO know he is our source."
I abhor vivisection. It should at least be curbed. Better, it
should be abolished. I know of no achievement through
vivisection, no scientific discovery, that could not have been
obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing
is evil.
If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be
vegetarian. We feel better about ourselves and better about the
animals, knowing we're not contributing to their pain.
The medical argument for animal testing doesn‘t stand up.
Even if it did, I don‘t think we should kill other species. We
think we‘re so much better; I‘m not sure we are. I tell people,
―We‘ve beaten into submission every animal on the face of the
Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going
on between the species. Couldn‘t we be generous? I really do
think it‘s time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them.
I think we‘ve got to show that we‘re kind.
We stopped eating meat many years ago. During the course of a
Sunday lunch we happened to look out of the kitchen window
at our young lambs playing happily in the fields. Glancing
down at our plates, we suddenly realized that we were eating
the leg of an animal who had until recently been playing in a
field herself. We looked at each other and said, "Wait a minute,
we love these sheep--they're such gentle creatures. So why are
we eating them?" It was the last time we ever did.
Someone from Manolo Blahnik went into my shop and said:
'These shoes are not vegetarian.' That's the highest compliment,
because you just can't tell that they are, and they are." "My
mum taught me to have a soul.
The really great thing about my shop is that there's not one dead
animal in it. ... Manolo's got a load of fabric shoes as well! We
use plastic, fabric, rubber- anything but leather. I almost feel
like I've been put here to show everyone that it's unnecessary.
Compassion is the foundation of everything positive,
everything good. If you carry the power of compassion to the
marketplace and the dinner table, you can make your life really
count.
Cruelty is one fashion statement we can all do without.
Fur used to turn heads, now it turns stomachs.
"Immunization with an attenuated virus cannot prevent
distemper. The author has treated many dogs, which have
developed distemper despite two or three injections of the
preventative agent. He is of the opinion that fits, chorea,
hysteria, etc, in dogs have become more frequent since the use
of distemper vaccine. Successful prevention will never be
achieved by inoculation."
"Do get involved in animal rights, YES... BUT: pace yourself!
Don't assume you will end these atrocities tomorrow! Lots of
people with lots of more knowledge before have been working
over hundred years to end this obscenity. Do take time to play!
Celebrate frequently the beauty that does exist despite the
world's brutality. Do unite with others who share your views.
Every individual who gets involved takes a single stone from
the enslaving wall until one day the wall must inevitably
crumble and fall! While many animals and many of us will not
live to see that day, we are working to help build the foundation
for the activists of tomorrow who'll continue our work. Our
torch must not be allowed to fall to the ground, but passed from
generation to generation without a stop until that glorious day
of animal liberation arrives! Tomorrow's activists will
remember the early animal soldiers with respect and affection."
The sturgeon take a long time to die on the fishing lines.
An important fact to remember is that all natural diets,
including purely vegetarian diets without a hint of dairy
products, contain amounts of calcium that are above the
treshold for meeting your nutritional needs....In fact, calcium
deficiency caused by an insufficient amount if calcium in the
diet is not known to occur in humans.
The amount of meat lost each year through careless handling
and brutality would be enough to feed a million Americans for
a year.
subject of the book Terry by her father: I go out of my way to
avoid stepping on ants.
Cruelty has cursed the human family for countless ages. It is
almost impossible for one to be cruel to animals and kind to
humans. If children are permitted to be cruel to their pets and
other animals, they easily learn to get the same pleasure from
the misery of fellow-humans. Such tendencies can easily lead
to crime.
Cruelty to animals can become violence to humans.
I have always felt that the way we treat animals is a pretty good
indicator of the compassion we are capable of for the human
race.
Every society honors its live conformists and its dead
troublemakers.
Let us look at some animal carcinogens – gold, DDT, clofibrate
and bromocriptine. There is no doubt that all of these can
rightly be regarded as carcinogenic for rodents, and yet there is
really quite good evidence that they are not carcinogenic to
man.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed,
citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that
ever has.
I feel very sorry for women who continue to purchase real fur
coats. They are lacking in a woman's most important requisites,
heart and sensitivity.
It's interesting that we're in jail and the murderers are outside.
(The Animal Liberation Front includes industrial agents of
vivisection, fur, meat trades etc, who seek to involve the group
in the tarbrush of violence and to deflect rivers of energy into
sand. The best way to change animal suffering in the world is
to stop eating and using animals and to convince others.
Nevertheless, God has a different work for each soul, different
drummer thoughts for each mind, freedom of conscience and
freedom to disobey civilly.)
The sort of man who likes to spend his time watching a cage of
monkeys chase one another, or a lion gnaw its tail, or a lizard
catch flies, is precisely the sort of man whose mental weakness
should be combated at the public expense, and not fostered.
"If we halted research using animals today the result would be
immediate and beneficial."
Why is compassion not part of the established curriculum, an
inherent part of our education? Compassion, awe, wonder,
curiosity, humility - these are the foundation of any real
civilisation, no longer the prerogatives, the preserves of any
one church, but belonging to everyone, every child in every
home in every school.
Since factory farming exerts a violent and unnatural force upon
the living organisms of animals and birds in order to increase
production and profits; since it involves callous and cruel
exploitation of life, with implicit contempt for nature, I must
join in the protest being uttered against it. It does not seem that
these methods have any really justifiable purpose, except to
increase the quantity of production at the expense of quality—if
that can be called a justifiable purpose.
The tzaddik (righteous person) acts according to the laws of
justice; not only does he act according to these laws with
human beings, but also with animals.
Animal life, somber mystery. All nature protests against the
barbarity of man, who misapprehends, who humiliates, who
tortures his inferior brethren.
"Every great movement must experience three states: ridicule,
discussion, adoption."
It often happens that the universal belief of one age a belief
from which no one was free or could be free without an
extraordinary effort of genius or courage, becomes to a
subsequent age, so palpable an absurdity that the only difficulty
is to imagine how such an idea could ever have appeared
credible.'
The reasons for legal intervention in favour of children apply
not less strongly to the case of those unfortunate slaves and
victims of the most brutal part of mankind - the animals.
Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the
child as it is to the caterpillar.
"Cruelty to animals is a two-edged sword, injuring not only the
helpless sufferers, but blunting the moral nature of the person
guilty of the offense. A man cannot be a true Christian and
willingly inflict torture on any living being."
Basically we should stop doing those things that are destructive
to the environment, other creatures, and ourselves and figure
out new ways of existing.
I believe that a vegan diet causes less suffering than a diet
centered around animal products. Animals are sentient
creatures with their own wills, and it seems wrong to force our
will onto another creature just because we're able to.
If you look at the course of western history you'll see that we're
slowly granting basic rights to everyone. A long time ago only
kings had rights. Then rights were extended to property-owning
white men. Then all men. Then women. Then children. Then
the mentally retarded. Now we're agonizing over the extension
of basic rights to homosexuals and animals. We need to finally
accept that all sentient creatures are deserving of basic rights. I
define basic rights as this --the ability to pursue life without
having someone else's will involuntarily forced upon you. Or,
as the framers of the constitution put it, the ability to have "life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness". By what criteria can you
justify denying basic rights to any living thing? Realize that by
whatever criteria you employ someone could deny basic rights
to you if they objected to your species, sexual preferences,
color, religion, ideology etc. Would you eat your housecat, or
force a mentally retarded child to ingest oven cleaner? If not,
then why is it ok to eat cows and test products on sentient
animals? I believe that to knowingly commit actions that cause
or condone suffering beings and animals may be different, but
Intellectually, human is reprehensible in the extreme.I call upon
it's pretty obvious that animals have a rich emotional life and
that they feel joy and pain. It's easy to forget the connection
between a hamburger and the cow it came from. But I forced
myself to acknowledge the fact that every time I ate a
hamburger, a cow had ceased to breathe and moo and walk
around.
The environment is worth more than consumer goods and the
g.n.p. freedom of speech is absolute and inviolate. guns are too
dangerous for private ownership. sustainable & non-polluting
energy sources make environmental and economic sense.
research performed on animals is, by definition, scientifically
unsound. cruelty is unacceptable. what you do with your own
body is your choice. one individual violently imposing his or
her will on another individual is wrong. you can't expect people
to worry about the world when they can't feed themselves or
their children. the hazards and risks of nuclear power make it
unacceptable as an energy source. the use of animals for food is
unhealthy, inefficient, & cruel. people need love & affection.
tobacco use has killed & harmed more people than all human
wars combined.
There are viable (and usually better) alternatives to the use of
animals for food, sport, clothing, & experimentation. I beg you
to discontinue any actions that might cause or condone animal
torture, abuse, or destruction.
It's depressing, drugs that worked really well in animals, really
ought to have worked, and didn't have any efficacy in humans
at all.
A good deed done to an animal is as meritorious as a good deed
done to a human being, while an act of cruelty to an animal is
as bad as an act of cruelty to a human being.
All education should be directed toward the refinement of the
individual's sensibilities in relation not only to one's fellow
humans everywhere, but to all things whatsoever. In the
societies of the Western world compassionate intelligence is
encouraged in girls - in boys it is tabu. The tabu on tenderness
in which boys are conditioned, the emphasis on "manliness,"
"machoism," plays havoc with the male's capacity for
compassionate intelligence. Tenderness is considered to be
feminine, and that is sufficient to remove it from the repertoire
of masculine behavior. Indeed, things have reached such a pass
in the Western world that many men seem to have lost all
understanding of its meaning. The masculine world would
substitute for it the idea of "justice." The difficulty with that is
that there is not much compassion in their justice, and justice
without compassion is not justice at all.
Stand still, close your eyes and listen; in the silence you can
hear the cries of pain and low moans of anguish of animals
waiting to die... do everything you can even if today it is just
one small thing. There are no excuses for inaction, despair,
egotism, or petulance that matter to the animals.
The bond and kinship which indissolubly exists between all
living beings requires especially on our part a deep
involvement in their welfare. The indifference, callousness and
contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil
first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second
because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of
the human spirit.
Why does Sea World have a seafood restaurant? I'm halfway

"A universe is indeed to be pitied whose dominating
inhabitants are so unconscious and so ethically embryonic that
they make life a commodity, mercy a disease, and systematic
massacre a pastime and a profession."
Man is not the pedestalled creature pictured by his imagination -
a being glittering with prerogatives, and towering apart from
and above all other beings. He is a pain-shunning, pleasure-
seeking, death-dreading organism, differing in particulars, but
not in kind, from the pain-shunning, pleasure-seeking, death-
dreading organisms below and around him.
Behind every beautiful fur, there is a story. It is a bloody,
barbaric story.
The Utopians feel that slaughtering our fellow creatures
gradually destroys the sense of compassion, which is the finest
sentiment of which our human nature is capable.
The animal rights movement is "part of a revolutionary process
aimed at restructuring the major institution of society."
"Active hatred of cruelty, injustice and oppression is perhaps
the main difference between a good person and a bad one."
The idea that it is funny to see wild animals coerced into acting
like clumsy humans, or thrilling to see powerful beasts reduced
to cringing cowards by a whipcracking trainer is primitive and
medieval. It stems from the old idea that we are superior to
other species and have the right to hold dominion over them.
"If you can't lower heaven, raise hell!"
I have never yet happened upon a trace of evidence. . .to show
that any one animal was ever made for another as much as it
was made for itself.
"One of the functions of intelligence is to take account of the
dangers that come from trusting solely to the intelligence."
The very people who shudder over the cruelty of the hunter are
apt to forget that slaughter, in the grimmest sense of the word,
is a process they entrust daily to the butcher; and that unlike the
game of the forests, even the dumbest creatures of the
slaughterhouse know what is in store for them.
"All that is best in me I have given to (animals) and I mean to
stand by them to the last and share their fate whatever it may
be. If it is true that there is to be no haven of rest for them when
their sufferings here are at an end, I, for one, am not going to
bargain for any heaven for myself. I shall go without fear where
they go, and by the side of my brothers and sisters from the
forests and the fields, from skies to seas, lie down to merciful
extinction in their mysterious underworld, safe from any further
torments."
The wild, cruel animal is not behind the bars of a cage. He is in
front of it.
I have run into patients who undergo marked alterations in
behavior patterns when ingesting dairy products, and whose
behavior is totally changed by withholding them.
By becoming a vegetarian out of ethical concern for animals,
one ceases to contribute to roughly 90 percent of all animal
cruelty, abuse and killing in the United States.
Living creatures possess a moving soul and a certain spiritual
superiority which in this respect make them similar to those
who possess intellect (people) and they have the power of
affecting their welfare and their food and they flee from pain
and death.
The highest religion is to rise to universal brotherhood; and to
consider all creatures your equals.
Based on my experience in Los Angeles, my advice to the
public is not to eat meat.
This is one of many ways vivisectors try to get their promised
cures to humans' illnesses AND money for them: "Urination:
find out why an adult male dog lifts his leg to urinate while a
female squats."
I haven't bought any leather articles for a very long time. My
ideal is to be able to avoid all animal products, in food as well
as clothing.
There's so many vegetarian foods now that are available at the
market . The same with drive-throughs. Now, a lot of them
serve veggie burgers just like the restaurants are doing. So, it's
really very easy.
Why do we make one reform topic a hobby and forget all
others? Mercy, Prohibition, Vegetarianism, Woman's Suffrage
and Peace would make Old Earth a paradise, and yet the
majority advocate but one, if any, of these.
My wife actually got worried about my drinking so much
regular milk, you know, so she got me into rice milk and now
soy milk, which I greatly enjoy. A soy mocha's a fine thing.
The standard four food groups are based on American
agricultural lobbies. Why do we have a milk group? Because
we have a National Dairy Council. Why do we have a meat
group? Because we have an extremely powerful meat lobby.
"Cruelty is the vice most natural to dullness of mind."
"Over time, human beings have stopped doing many shameful
things to each other. And just as surely as it is now illegal to
experiment on orphans and prisoners of war, one day animal
abuse - for fur, for food, for entertainment, and for testing - will
also be gone. Forever.
As long as people treat animals as toys, possessions and
commodities, rather than as individuals with feelings,
widespread neglect and abuse is destined to continue.

Opportunities abound, not just to avoid making mistakes in the
marketplace - which animals pay for with their lives - but to say
and do even small things that will make a huge difference in
how animals are treated and viewed. Act on the adage, 'All that
evil needs to triumph is for enough good people to do nothing.'
Wherever you are, if you see something wrong, put yourself in
the animal's place and speak up! There are always other people
who hold the same view but are waiting for someone else to go
first. That someone is you. Even the terminally shy can be
shameless salespeople, planting animal rights seeds in others'
minds without even speaking to them! In restaurants talk loudly
to your companion about how the vegetarian food is the best!
On crowded elevators, discuss how 'Sarah' lost 30 pounds since
she stopped eating chicken and fish! There is no 'one true way'
to animal liberation - all that matters is that you are doing
something. Don't fret over failures! REMEMBER: Every single
act brings animal liberation that much closer!

Recognize meat for what it really is: the antibiotic- and
pesticide-laden corpse of a tortured animal.
Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but six billion
broiler chickens will die this year in slaughter houses.
They are fishes, not fish. (The word fish objectifies these
creatures who are often suffocated to death.)
When it comes to having a central nervous system, and the
ability to feel pain, hunger, and thirst, a rat is a pig is a dog is a
boy.
...there is something so very dreadful, so satanic in tormenting
those who have never harmed us, and who cannot defend
themselves, who are utterly in our power, who have weapons
neither of offence nor defense, that none but very hardened
persons can endure the thought of it.
Cruelty to animals is as if man did not love God.
Now what is it moves our very heart and sickens us so much as
cruelty shown to poor brutes? I suppose this: first, that they
have done us no harm; next, that they have no power whatever
of resistance; it is the cowardice and tyranny of which they are
the victims which make their sufferings so especially touching.
… There is something so dreadful, so Satanic, in tormenting
those who have never harmed us, and who cannot defend
themselves, who are utterly in our power.
We are instructed by the Torah to feed our animals before we
feed ourselves.
So long as men are compassionate to such a degree that they
cannot hear a fly struggling in a spider's web without emotion it
can never be reasonably maintained that it is their natural
impulse to wound and kill the dumb animals, or to butcher one
another in what is called the field of honour.
Maybe the world would be better if people didn't hate so much
and kill animals.
I do not like eating meat because I have seen lambs and pigs
killed. I saw and felt their pain. They felt their approaching
death. I could not bear it. I cried like a child. I ran up a hill and
could not breathe. I felt that I was choking. I felt the death of
the lamb.
"Sensitive persons do hear the moans of the world that's being
murdered, and the moans of the animals' that are being tortured.
Those who do not perceive such clamor, are already dead for
God."
Look deep into the eyes of any animal, and then for a moment,
trade places, their life becomes as precious as yours and you
become as vulnerable as them. Now smile if you believe all
animals deserve our respect and our protection, for in a way,
they are us, and we are them.
You really have to design the medicine for the species of
interest…You'll find it very rare to find a medicine that will
work in both…
As a cancer specialist engaged in clinical practice, I can‘t agree
with the researchers who believe that results obtained with
laboratory animals are applicable to human beings.
Out of 135 criminals, including robbers and rapists, 118
admitted that when they were children they burned, hanged and
stabbed domestic animals.
The fundamental problem in drug discovery for cancer is that
the model systems are not predictive at all. ancer research at
Merck Research Laboratories in West Point,
Pennsylvania…Researchers blamed the failures on the fact that
the drugs were being tested against mouse, not human,
tumors… the xenograft tumors don't behave like naturally
occurring tumors in humans – they don't spread to other tissues,
for example. Thus, drugs tested in the xenografts appeared
effective but worked poorly in humans.
There are many unresolved problems in the standard bio-assay,
including... how to account for inter-species and intra-species
differences in metabolism and pharmacokinetics.
I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced
vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically
conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol-
lowering drugs for the rest of their lives.
The rodent‘s 6 pairs of mammary glands suggest an increased
likelihood for tumor development compared to the human.
Drinking cow milk has been linked to iron-deficiency anemia
in infants and children; it has been named as the cause of
cramps and diarrhea in much of the World's population and the
cause of multiple forms of allergies as well.
There‘s no reason to drink cow‘s milk at any time in your life.
It was designed for calves, not humans, and we should all stop
drinking it today.
I decided I needed to be consistent in my prolife stance so 13
years ago I became a vegetarian.
Oh, Ox, how great are yours desserts! A being without deceit,
harmless, simple, willing for work! Ungrateful and unworthy of
the fruits of the earth, man kills his own farm helper with the
axe, that toil-worn neck that had so often renewed for him the
face of the hard earth; so many harvests given!
Take not away the life you cannot give; For all things have an
equal right to live, Kill noxious creatures where 'tis sin to save;
This only just prerogative we have; But nourish life with
vegetable food, And shun the sacrilegious taste of blood.
Forbear, O mortals, To spoil your bodies with such impious
food! There is corn for you, apples, whose weight bears down
The bending branches; there are grapes that swell On the vines,
and pleasant herbs, and greens Made mellow and soft with
cooking; there is milk And clover-honey. Earth is generous
With her provision, and her sustenance Is very kind; she offers,
for your tables, Food that requires no bloodshed and no
slaughter.
"It's disheartening that animal people criticize societies that
enlist the help of actors or organize creative acts like 'I'd rather
go naked than wear fur,' to increase public awareness to our
cause. These are great/courageous ideas which time has come!
Liberation of animals is REVOLUTION - not elegant
performance/ intellectual competition. We should do most
anything to advance the animal rights cause. All the bickering
may make the one step forward... TWO STEPS
BACKWARD???"
"Please remember the hundreds of tiny empty stomachs in our
communities. Winter is a tough time for birds and other small
creatures as food can become buried beneath snow or frozen
ground. Scatter seeds in your yard, nearby parks."
All national institutions of churches, whether jewish, christian,
or turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up
to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and
profit.
The moral duty of man consists of imitating the moral
goodness and beneficence of God manifested in the creation
towards all his creatures. Everything of persecution and
revenge between man and man, and everything of cruelty to
animals is a violation of moral duty.
In the early 80's I witnessed a Calgary Stampede.. and saw a
calf whose neck was apparently broken from the roping. (A
horizontal hanging can occur).
... numerous chemicals have been found to have potential
toxicity/carcinogenicity in rat or mouse, which, we are
reasonably certain, have little or no potential hazard in man.
The reason for this is again species differences, for the
biological defence mechanism which protects against toxic
chemicals is most highly evolved in man, who therefore
generally has a higher resistance to chemical toxicity and
carcinogenicity than have rodents and other species.

Why the dog was ever considered as an appropriate animal for
carcinogenicity testing is also not entirely clear... Despite the
obvious problems of study design and interpretation,
carcinogenicity tests in the dog, lasting 7 years, were requested
by regulatory authorities from the late 1960s...One of the best
known examples of the inappropriate use of the dog was the
carcinogenicity testing of hormonal contraceptives. It is now
understood that mammogenesis in the dog is very different
from that in primates; quantitative and qualitative differences
exist in the feedback control mechanisms, receptor content and
behaviour, and target sensitivity and responsivity. As a result of
this biological difference there was a high incidence of
mammary tumours in long-term studies in dogs treated with
progestagens/contraceptive steroids such as lynestrol.
Ultimately pressure from the scientific community led,
relatively recently, to the requirement for carcinogenicity
studies in dogs being dropped.

"It is necessary and urgent that, following the example of the
poor man (St. Francis), one decides to abandon inconsiderate
forms of domination, capture and custody with respect to all
creatures."
[St. Francis] looked upon creation with the eyes of one who
could recognize in it the marvelous work of the hand of God.
His solicitous care, not only towards men, but also towards
animals is a faithful echo of the love with which God in the
beginning pronounced his 'fiat' which brought them into
existence. We too are called to a similar attitude.
God, who in creating saw that His creation was good, is the
source of joy for all creatures, and above all for humankind.
God the Creator seems to say of all creation: 'It is good that you
exist.' And His joy spreads especially through the 'good news,'
according to which good is greater than all that is evil in the
world,,,, Creation was given and entrusted to humankind as a
duty, representing not a source of suffering but the foundation
of a creative existence in the world.
The present-day mentality, more perhaps than that of people in
the past, seems opposed to a God of mercy, and in fact tends to
exclude from life and to remove from the human heart the very
idea of mercy. The word and the concept of 'mercy' seem to
cause uneasiness in man, who, thanks to the enormous
development of science and technology, never before known in
history, has become master of the earth and has subdued and
dominated it. This dominion over the earth, sometimes
understood in a one-sided and superficial way, seems to leave
no room for mercy....
My respect and empathy towards animals includes sea dwellers
too--from dolphins to fish to lobsters. So, of course, I wouldn't
dream of eating them.
[mouse models are] woefully inadequate…if you look at the
millions and millions and millions of mice that have been
cured, and you compare that to the relative success, or lack
thereof, that we've achieved in the treatment of metastatic
disease clinically, you realize that there just has to be
something wrong with those models.
Vegan diets can meet the nutrient and energy needs of pregnant
women. Birth weights of infants born to well nourished
vegetarian women have been shown to be similar to birth-
weight norms and to birth weights of infants of nonvegetarians.

We cannot treat any living thing callously, and we are
responsible for what happens to other beings, human or animal,
even if we do not personally come into contact with them.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, factory
farming pollutes U.S. waterways more than all industrial
sources combined.
"'The Artist', a vegan singer, reminds everyone who criticizes
activists for 'wasting' their compassion on animals:
'Compassion is an action word with no boundaries.'"
"There's no greater temptation than to use a protest to vent the
frustration and anger that we all feel in the face of atrocity.
Sometimes it feels really good to blow off steam at animal
abusers and people who defend them. But the purpose of a
demonstration is not to make us feel good. If we present the
public with an image of animal activists as angry/hostile/crude,
we have sacrificed the good of the animals for our own
gratification."
So you are the people tearing down the Brazilian rainforest and
breeding cattle.
There is no need for fur - since there are compassionate
alternatives.
Animals can't really voice their opinion. We feel as though we
can be on of the spokespeople on their behalf.
I've always felt somewhat out of place with other kids my own
age, said River. I was constantly reminded by people's reaction
to our names and our diet that we seemed weird to them.
When I was old enough to realize all meat was killed, I saw it
as an irrational way of using our power, to take a weaker thing
and mutilate it. It was like the way bullies would take control of
younger kids in the schoolyard.
"Animal Parts in Your Herbal Supplement??? Have you read
the label on your herbal supplements lately? Despite their
natural image, certain brands of supplements contain 'raw
animal parts.' In a letter to the New England Journal of
Medicine, Dr. Scott A. Norton reported that one product
explicitly listed 17 cow organs, including lungs and brain
matter. Other manufacturers, however, used terms that may slip
by the average label-reader. For instance, Dr. Norton noted the
consumer may not realize that 'hypothalamus' refers to brain
tissue or that 'orchis' refers to bulls' testicles. Currently, there
are no federal safety regulations to protect consumers who use
herbal supplements."
―The idea, as I understand it, is that fundamental truths are
revealed in laboratory experimentation on lower animals and
are then applied to the problems of the sick patient. Having
been myself trained as a physiologist, I feel in a way competent
to assess such a claim. It is plain nonsense.‖ -
I've always felt that animals are the purest spirits in the world.
They don't fake or hide their feelings, and they are the most
loyal creatures on Earth. And somehow we humans think we're
smarter - what a joke. I wish every person was forced to know
and learn and experience the horrors that these animals go
through at the cost of our trends.
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
His Holiness is pleased at being called upon, as head of the
Church, for his support in so noble an undertaking, which has
the lofty object of caring for the lives and treatment of animals
and which at the same time endeavours to eradicate from the
hearts of men barbarous and cruel tendencies.
St Francis was led to love all things which he knew had the
same origin as he, and in which he recognised the goodness of
God. For he followed his Well-Beloved everywhere and in
every trace of Him to be found in His creatures, he made of all
things a ladder to reach His throne.
The animal world, as all creation, is a manifestation of God‘s
power, His wisdom, and His goodness, and as such deserves
our respect and our consideration.
"No amount of testing can make a drug safe because humans
react differently from animals."
The closer you can live to being a vegetarian the better.
Can you really ask what reason Pythagoras had for abstaining
from flesh? For my part I rather wonder both by what accident
and in what state of soul or mind the first man did so, touched
his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead
creature, he who set forth tables of dead, stale bodies and
ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little
before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his
eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides
flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure
the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his
taste, which made contact with the sores of others and sucked
juices and serums from mortal wounds?
It is certainly not lions and wolves that we eat out of self-
defense; on the contrary, we ignore these and slaughter
harmless, tame creatures without stings or teeth to harm us,
creatures that, I swear, Nature appears to have produced for the
sake of their beauty and grace. But nothing abashed us, not the
flower-like tinting of the flesh, not the persuasiveness of the
harmonious voice, not the cleanliness of their habits or the
unusual intelligence that may be found in the poor wretches.
No, for the sake of a little flesh we deprive them of sun, of
light, of the duration of life to which they are entitled by birth
and being.
The obligations of law and equity reach only to mankind, but
kindness and benevolence should be extended to the creatures
of every species, and these will flow from the breast of a true
man, in streams that issue from the living fountain. Man makes
use of flesh not out of want and necessity, seeing that he has
the liberty to make his choice of herbs and fruits, the plenty of
which is inexhaustible; but out of luxury, and being cloyed
with necessaries, he seeks after impure and inconvenient diet,
purchased by the slaughter of living beasts; by showing himself
more cruel than the most savage of wild beasts ... were it only
to learn benevolence to human kind, we should be merciful to
other creatures.
We ought not to treat living creatures like shoes or household
belongings, which when worn with use we throw away.
Why do you belie the earth, as if it were unable to feed and
nourish you? Does it not shame you to mingle murder and
blood with her beneficent fruits? Other carnivores you call
savage and ferocious - lions and tigers and serpents - while
yourselves come behind them in no species of barbarity. And
yet for them murder is the only means of sustenance! Whereas
to you it is superfluous luxury and crime!
For to whom is it not manifest that justice is increased through
abstinence? For he who abstains from everything living, though
he may abstain from such animals as do not contribute to the
benefit of society, will be much more careful not to injure those
of his own species.
I will not eat anything that walks, runs, skips, hops or crawls.
God knows that I've crawled on occasion, and I'm glad that no
one ate me.
[Regarding tamoxifen, an anti-cancer drug] "Experimentally,
tamoxifen has carcinogenic potential. In some strains of rat, but
not mouse or hamster, tamoxifen can cause liver cancers at
doses as low as 5mg/kg per day... However, there are doubts
about the correlation of [the results] with the risk of malignant
disease even in rats, let alone in other rodents, mammals, or
human beings. There are many uncertainties in extrapolating
these experimental data from rats to women. The effect
depends on bioavailability, hepatic [liver] blood flow, and
hepatic [liver] metabolism to active genotoxic carcinogens, all
of which differ enormously between rat and man.
"I would not enter on my list of friends (Though graced with
polished manners and fine sense, Yet wanting sensibility), the
man Who needlessly sets foot upon a worm."
I refer to the tyranny of science. The old horrors are being
brought back. Though we no longer torture in the name of God
or in the name of the State, we torture in the name of science!
What is the importance of human lives? Is it their continuing
alive for so many years like animals in a menagerie? The value
of a man cannot be judged by the number of diseases from
which he escapes. The value of a man is in his human qualities:
in his character, in his conscience, in the nobility and
magnanimity, of his soul. Torturing animals to prolong human
life has separated science from the most important thing that
life has produced - the human conscience.
Pain is pain, whether it is inflicted on man or on beast; and the
creature that suffers it, whether man or beast, being sensible of
the misery of it whilst it lasts, suffers Evil… [T]he white man...
can have no right, by virtue of his color, to enslave and
tyrannize over a black man... for the same reason, a man can
have no natural right to abuse and torment a beast.
We may pretend to what religion we please, but cruelty is
atheism. We may boast of Christianity; but cruelty is infidelity.
We may trust our orthodoxy; but cruelty is the worst of
heresies.
Vegetarians always ask about getting enough protein. But I
don't know any nutrition expert who can plan a diet of natural
foods resulting in a protein deficiency, so long as you're not
deficient in calories. You need only 5 or 6 percent of total
calories in protein... and it is pratically impossible to get below
9 percent in ordinary diets.
A righteous man has regard for the life of his beast.
The recommended daily allowances are based on arbitrary,
unscientific, and tainted standards (in a speech about his bill
backed by 37 senators to reduce the power of the FDA)
But for the use of physical punishment by, and fear of, their
oppressors, animals would never be a part of a circus.
When I was 6 my father killed my pet chicken. (That changed
his life.)
Alas, what wickedness to swallow flesh into our own flesh, to
fatten our greedy bodies by cramming in other bodies, to have
one living creature fed by the death of another! In the midst of
such wealth as earth, the best of mothers, provides, yet nothing
satisfies you, but to behave like the Cyclopes, inflicting sorry
wounds with cruel teeth! You cannot appease the hungry
cravings of your wicked, gluttonous stomachs except by
destroying some other life.
Animals share with us the privilege of having a soul.
As long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower
living beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as
men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he
who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and
love.
If men with fleshly mortals must be fed,/ And chew with
bleeding teeth the breathing bread;/ What else is this but to
devour our guests,/ And barbarously renew Cyclopean feasts?/
While Earth not only can your needs supply,/ But, lavish of her
store, provides for luxury;/ A guiltless feast administers with
ease,/And without blood is prodigal to please.
O ye who believe! Kill not game while in the sacred precincts
or in pilgrim garb. If any of you doth so intentionally, the
compensation is an offering, brought to the Ka'ba, of a
domestic animal equivalent to the one he killed, as adjudged by
two just men among you; or by way of atonement, the feeding
of the indigent; or its equivalent in fasts: that he may taste of
the penalty of his deed. Allah forgives what is past: for
repetition Allah will exact from him the penalty. For Allah is
Exalted, and Lord of Retribution.
He created the earth for all creatures... Which of your Lord's
marvels can you deny?
Hunters are to the arms industry what smokers are to the
tobacco industry. Smokers get a nicotine rush. Hunters get an
adrenalin rush from killing a living being.
"If YOU don't act, then YOU condone... If YOU don't fight,
then YOU don't win."
"No more compromises. No more lies. Every 6 seconds an
animal is murdered! If YOU don't act, then YOU condone... If
YOU don't fight, then YOU don't win!"
Feeling unbearable compassion for all animals in the world
who are killed for food, I went back before the Jowo Rinpoche
[a great statue of the Buddha in Lhasa], prostrated myself, and
made this vow: 'From today on, I give up the negative act that
is eating the flesh of beings.
As far as whether we are allowed to kill and to eat animals,
there is a remarkable ordering of matters in Holy Scripture. We
can read how, at first, only plants are mentioned as providing
food for man. Only after the flood, that is to say, after a new
breach has been opened between God and man, are we told that
man eats flesh...Nonetheless...we should not proceed from this
to a kind of sectarian cult of animals. For this, too, is permitted
to man. He should always maintain his respect for these
creatures, but he knows at the same time that he is not
forbidden to take food from them. Certainly, a sort of industrial
use of creatures, so that geese are fed in such a way as to
produce as large a liver as possible, or hens live so packed
together that they become just caricatures of birds, this
degrading of living creatures to a commodity seems to me in
fact to contradict the relationship of mutuality that comes
across in the Bible.
Excerpts from an interview with Cardinal Ratzinger by German
journalist Peter Seewald
Cardinal Ratzinger is the Prefect for the Congregation for the
Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican's foremost advisor on matters
of doctrine.
Seewald: Are we allowed to make use of animals, and even to
eat them?
Ratzinger: That is a very serious question. At any rate, we can
see that they are given into our care, that we cannot just do
whatever we want with them. Animals, too, are God's
creatures, and even if they do not have the same direct relation
to God that man has, they are creatures of his will, creatures we
must respect as companions in creation and as important
elements in the creation.
Everything we need to feed ourselves and to restore and please
us is abundantly provided in the inexhaustible store of Nature.
… In short our orchards offer all the delights imaginable while
the slaughter houses and butchers are full of congealed blood
and abominable stench.
There is no doubt, that man is not built to be a carnivorous
animal. … What a sweet, pleasing and innocent sight is the
spectacle of a table served that way and what a difference to a
make up of fuming animal meat, slaughtered and dead! Man in
no way has the constitution of a carnivorous being. Hunt and
voracity are unnatural to him. Man has neither the sharp
pointed teeth or claws to slaughter his prey. On the contrary his
hands are made to pick fruits, berries and vegetables and teeth
appropriate to chew them
It's just that I have this funny objection to torturing small
animals no matter how scrumptious their body parts might be.
... Our food industries are equal opportunity abusers: cows,
chickens, pigs, and a special mention to those little calves who
for their short, miserable lives are locked into crates too small
to allow movement just so we can eat veal.
The dissolution of commercial animal farming as we know it
obviously requires more than our individual commitment to
vegetarianism. To refuse on principle to buy products of the
meat industry is to do what is right, but it is not to do enough.
To recognize the rights of animals is to recognize the related
duty to defend them against those who violate their rights, and
to discharge this duty requires more than our individual
abstention. It requires acting to bring about those changes that
are necessary if the rights of these animals are not to be
violated. Fundamentally, then, it requires a revolution in our
culture's thought about, and its accepted treatment of, farm
animals... But prejudices die hard, all the more so when they
are insulated by widespread secular customs and religious
beliefs, sustained by large and powerful economic interests,
and protected by the common law. To overcome the collective
entropy of those forces against change will not be easy. The
animal rights movement is not for the faint heart.
The position we hold-the abolitionist position-is often said to
be "extreme," and those of us who hold it are said to be
"extremists." The unspoken suggestions are that extreme
positions cannot be right and that extremists must be wrong.
But I am an extremist when it comes to rape-I am against it all
the time. I am an extremist when it comes to child abuse- I am
against it all the time. I am an extremist when it comes to
sexual discrimination, racial discrimination-I am against it all
the time. I am an extremist when it comes to abuse of the
elderly- I am against it all the time. The plain fact is, moral
truth often is extreme, and must be, for when the injustice is
absolute, then one must oppose it-absolutely.
The USDA recommendation of 2 servings of meat per day
seems like too much.
"The drugs Prednisone and Vincristine are often hailed as
'curing' childhood leukemia. Both drugs were rejected by the
US National Cancer Institute as 'useless' on the basis of animal
tests. Prednisone was developed as a result of clinical
observation of the effects of adrenal extract. Vincristine is an
alkaloid of 'Vincra Rosea', a type of periwinkle plant, and
extracts of periwinkle were used in the Roman Empire to 'dry
tumours' (Pliny). They were eventually brought to clinical
trials. The children cured of leukemia owe their lives to
clinical observations and trials - and not to the animal 'model'."
"Distinguishing a true gentleman is his instinctive chivalry at
all times and on all occasions toward the weak and defenseless,
be it human or be it nonhuman."
Before they reach their end, the pigs get a shower, a real one.
Water sprays from every angle to wash the farm off them. Then
they begin to feel crowded. The pen narrows like a funnel' the
drivers behind urge the pigs forward, until one at a time they
climb onto the moving ramp... Now they scream, never having
been on such a ramp, smelling the smells they smell ahead. I do
not want to overdramatize because you've read all this before.
But it was a frightening experience, seeing their fear, seeing so
many of them go by, it had to remind me of things no one
wants to be reminded of anymore, all mobs, all death marches,
all mass murders and executions ...
Hunting...the least honorable form of war on the weak.
Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur,
feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account?
It seems disingenuous for the intellectual elite of the first world
to dwell on the subject of too many babies being born in the
second- and third-world nations while virtually ignoring the
over-population of cattle and the realities of a food chain that
robs the poor of sustenance to feed the rich a steady diet of
grain-fed meat.
The transition of world agriculture from food grain to feed
grains represents an...evil whose consequences may be far
greater and longer lasting than any past examples of violence
inflicted by men against thier fellow human beings.
The world's environment can no longer handle beef.
That the use of animal food disposes man to cruel and
ferocious action is a fact to which the experience of ages gives
ample testimony . . . The barbarous and unfeeling "sports" (as
they are called) of the English - their horse-racing, hunting,
shooting, bull and bear baiting, cock-fighting, prize fighting,
and the like, all proceed from their immoderate addiction to
animal food. Their natural temper is thereby corrupted, and
they are in the habitual and hourly commission of crimes
against nature, justice, and humanity, from which a feeling and
reflective mind, unaccustomed to such a diet, would revolt, but
in which they profess to take delight.
"I have a dream. I see humankind understanding that the spirit
which sings in our hearts sings as well in the hearts of the other
animals."
A reduction in beef and other meat consumption is the most
potent single act you can take to halt the destruction of our
environment and preserve our natural resources. Our choices do
matter. What's healthiest for each of us personally is also
healthiest for the life support system of our precious, but
wounded planet.
Awareness is bad for the meat business. Conscience is bad for
the meat business. Sensitivity to life is bad for the meat
business. DENIAL, however, the meat business finds
indispensable.
I think the evidence is pretty clear. If you look at various
characteristics of carnivores versus herbivores, it doesn't take a
genius to see where humans line up.
When we kill the animals to eat them, they end up killing us
because their flesh, which contains cholesterol and saturated
fat, was never intended for human beings.
I have reached zero tolerance for the cruelty against our animal
brothers. If we are to nuture our culture, let‘s begin with the
animals who have been nothing but our beasts of burden for so
long.
If animal experimentation, animal dissection and any kind of
animal exploitation all ended tomorrow, I don‘t make a f-----‘
dime!‖ I am for the animals, I couldn‘t care less about your
need to eat animals, wear them, shoot them or exploit them.
Too bad if you consider it suffering to let all that self-centered
and traditional bullshit stop you from having the will to help
the animals..
If you don't like my opinions leave. But just remember, the
animals can‘t leave the cages that hold them. They are captive
and suffering. As you cozy into your bed tonight, try to imagine
the pain and the suffering that they endure day after day and
night after night. Next time you get some soap in your eyes, try
to imagine that pain for 3 or 4 days at a time. Next time you
have a stomach ache, try to imagine liquid plumber being
poured down your throat till you puke so much blood that you
bleed to death. Next time you bump your head, try to imagine
being a monkey and getting a steel plate smashed into your
skull at 50 miles per hour. Then, only then should you feel
compelled to tell me that I‘m wrong about my opinions. For all
these things have happened in the name of science. They
continue in abundance till this day.
Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know
they're in the game.
Elsewhere, I have pointed out that overfeeding of rats
profoundly influences the incidence particularly of endocrine
tumours. Furthermore, endocrine tumours and tumours of
tissues, such as the breast and uterus, which are very directly
under sex-hormone control, constitute a very high proportion of
the tumours observed in most carcinogenicity studies in rats.
[Comparing] the incidences of tumours in these categories in
men and women with those in male and female rats... [shows]
the differences between the two species are sufficiently striking
to make one wonder how appropriate the laboratory rat is as a
model for man in terms of the spectra of tumours to which they
are prone.
Recent research has revealed that birds are capable of complex
cognition . . . it is now clear that birds have cognitive capacities
equivalent to those of mammals, even primates . . . it should be
realized that even vastly improved intensive systems are
unlikely to meet the cognitive demands of the hitherto
underestimated chicken brain. . . . With the increased
knowledge of the behaviour and cognitive abilities of the
chicken has come the realization that the chicken is not an
inferior species to be treated merely as a food source.
To a man whose mind is free there is something even more
intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of
man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is
evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands
of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow
of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought
ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime. That alone is
the justification of all that humans may suffer. It cries
vengeance upon all the human race. If God exists and tolerates
it, it cries vengeance upon God.
It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine.
Vegetarian - that's an old Indian word meaning "lousy hunter."
"I am not willing to let the market-place determine the future of
the animal kingdom."
The current treatment of animals in the livestock trade
definitely renders the consumption of meat as halachically
unacceptable as the product of illegitimate means. … As it is
halachically prohibited to harm oneself and as healthy,
nutritious vegetarian alternatives are easily available, meat
consumption has become halachically unjustifiable.
You know, we all oppose animal cruelty. But sometimes we
forget that animals on farms suffer and feel pain like all other
animals. They, too, deserve to be protected from harm and
cruelty.
The person I love would never wear fur. Fur just makes me
think of shallow women who have no conscience. The fur
industry belongs to a time when people were selfish beyond
belief. If you were some ancient tribal cheiftain, and there was
not a department store nearby 350 years ago, I'd understand.
But now, we have synthetic fibers,and it's not necessary. The
elitism of fur makes me wanna puke.
English coarseness is well known. The Gaures, on the contrary,
are the gentlest of men. All savages are cruel, and it is not their
morals that urge them to be so; this cruelty proceeds from their
food. They go to war as to the chase, and treat men as they do
bears. Even in England the butchers are not received as legal
witnesses any more than surgeons. And great criminals harden
themselves to murder by drinking [animal] blood.
Every animal (of the higher species) has ideas, since he has
senses. He even combines his ideas up to a certain point, and
man differs, in this respect, only in the more or less. Some
philosophic writers have even advanced that there is more
difference between this man and that man, than between this
man and that (non-human) animal. It is not, therefore,
intelligence so much as his quality of being a free agent which
makes the difference.
One of the proofs that the taste of flesh is not natural to man is
the indifference which children exhibit for that sort of meat,
and the preference they all give to vegetable foods, such as
milk-porridge, pastry, fruits, etc. It is of the last importance not
to de-naturalize them of this primitive taste and not to render
them carnivorous, if not for health reasons, at least for the sake
of their character. For, however the experience may be
explained, it is certain that great eaters of flesh are, in general,
more cruel and ferocious than other men. This observation is
true of all places and of all times.
The animals you eat are not those who devour others; you do
not eat the carnivorous beasts, you take them as your pattern.
You only hunger for the sweet and gentle creatures which harm
no one, which follow you, serve you, and are devoured by you
as the reward of their service.
Cows when not bred for passivity so that they will go meekly to
slaughter.. revert to their acute intelligence, and can live easily
in the wild.
No sensitive person would eat flesh if he or she had to do the
skull-breaking, slaughtering, strangling, shooting, blood-letting,
skinning and disemboweling, and live in the stench and among
the agonised cries of the victims.
"But there's little doubt that if the animals believed in the
Devil, to them he (the Devil) would look remarkably like a
human being!"
Because of their highly sensitive nervous systems and
outstanding physical endurance, cats are the preferred animals
for particularly painful and long-lasting neurological
experiments... devised by plainly unbalanced minds!
The American public has been trained to accept anything that
sails under the flag of science.
Vivisection: The Psychopathic Aspect. Sadism is a very ugly
word, which serves to define a very ugly psychopathy - a
mental disease. Vivisectors have been known to accept with
equanimity the allegation of being money grubbers - of doing
cruel experiments only to gain money or a professorship. But
we have never known a vivisector who bore with equanimity
the allegation of being a sadist. They always reacted to all such
allegations with frothing, like other psychopaths when they are
confronted with the nature of their disorder. If it is a mistake to
believe that all vivisectors are sadists, it would be another
mistake to believe that sadism is not rampant in the animal
laboratories. It is. In fact, for men and women (more men, as a
rule) who are affected by this grave psychopathy (mental
malady), and on top of it are animal haters, what kind of
remunerated occupation could be more gratifying than a job in
a viviection laboratory?
Right now, I'm pro-leave beef alone. Big shout-out to all the
vegetarians who don't want beef! (Us Weekly)
"He who is not actively kind is cruel!"
Why not just put sterilization hormones in the deer food rather
than killing them?
Because one species is more clever than another, does it give it
the right to imprison or torture the less clever species? Does
one exceptionally clever individual have a right to exploit the
less clever individuals of his own species? To say that he does
is to say with the Fascists that the strong have a right to abuse
and exploit the weak - might is right, and the strong and
ruthless shall inherit the earth.
I do not believe that any of the suffering I have caused to
laboratory animals has helped humanity in the slightest.
Some will take refuge in the old cliché that humans are
different from other animals. But when did a difference justify
a moral prejudice? When did those with black hair have a right
to mistreat those with red hair...or even those with blue or
purple hair...Surely the crucial similarity that men share with
other animals is the capacity to suffer? Regardless of the
number of legs or the woolliness of our fur, we can all suffer...
The cruel experimenter cannot be allowed to have it both ways.
He cannot, in the same breath, defend the scientific validity of
vivisection on the grounds of the physical similarities between
man and the other animals, and then defend the morality of
vivisection on the grounds that men and animals are physically
different. The only logical alternatives for him are to admit he
is either pre-Darwinian or immoral.
The welfare of animal citizens is as much our concern as is that
of other humans. Surely if we are all God‘s creatures, if all
animal species are capable of feeling, if we are all evolutionary
relatives, if all animals are on the same biological continuum,
then also we should all be on the same moral continuum—and
if it is wrong to inflict suffering upon an innocent and
unwilling human, then it is wrong to so treat another species.
We recognize, I hope, our special responsibilities to the aged
and infirm, towards the sick, the mentally subnormal and the
physically handicapped. We say that such sentient creatures
that are less able to care for themselves deserve our special care
and support. The same argument applies to children - and we as
adults claim we recognize special duties towards them. If this is
so, then why do we not recognize our special duties towards
individuals from less clever species?
What are we doing when we brainwash children in schools to
cut open their fellow animals? Are we dangerously
desensitizing them? Some of the most warped and blunted
people I know are those who have gone through training of this
sorts.
"It is time to end cancer research on animals because it is not
related to humans."
Giving cancer to laboratory animals has not and will not help
us to understand the disease or to treat those persons suffering
from it.
This [video footage from the movie Babe] is the way
Americans want to think of pigs. Real-life "Babes" see no sun
in their limited lives, with no hay to lie on, no mud to roll in.
The sows live in tiny cages, so narrow they can‘t even turn
around. They live over metal grates, and their waste is pushed
through slats beneath them and flushed into huge pits.
Humans - who enslave, castrate, experiment on, and fillet other
animals - have had an understandable penchant for pretending
animals do not feel pain. A sharp distinction between humans
and "animals" is essential if we are to bend them to our will,
make them work for us, wear them, eat them - without any
disquieting tinges of guilt or regret. It is unseemly of us, who
often behave so unfeelingly toward other animals, to contend
that only humans can suffer. The behavior of other animals
renders such pretensions specious. They are just too much like
us.
Feminists work to free women from domination, violence, and
neglect but women must also no longer dominate, violate and
neglect female animals robbing them of their eggs and milk,
caging them.
The lifetime feeding study of mice and rats appears to have less
than a 50% probability of finding known human carcinogens.
On the basis of probability theory, we would have been better
off to toss a coin...The `definitive bioassay for carcinogenesis'
as now designed has never been subjected to proper validation
as an assay for human carcinogens. At attempt made in this
paper to examine the literature suggests that it may have an
unacceptably high false negative rate and that it produces so
many contradictory answers as to suggest a very poor
specificity.
It is not THIS bloodshed, or THAT bloodshed, that must cease;
but ALL bloodshed - all wanton infliction of pain or death.
The emancipation of men from cruelty and injustice will bring
with it in due course the emancipation of animals also. The two
reforms are inseparably connected, and neither can be fully
realized alone.
"We had basically discovered compounds that were good
mouse drugs rather than good human drugs."
Even when drugs with evidence of anticancer activity in
preclinical in vivo models are given at their maximum tolerated
doses, they frequently fail to produce useful activity in humans.
In summary, mouse xenograft models should not be viewed as
ideal models for cancer drug development. Altered, nonhuman
host stroma, poor predictive value when applied in an empirical
sense, and questionable relation to the naturally occurring
human disease are but a few features, which temper enthusiasm
for their use.
In the U.S. NCI retrospective (2001), activity in at least 33% of
models of a variety of histologies predicted for clinical activity
in some disease. In the NCI of Canada retrospective (2003),
generally similar conclusions were reached. It should be
cautioned, however, that the drugs used in these studies were
for the most part "classic" cytotoxics. Whether "targeted"
therapeutics, such as signal transduction inhibitors,
antiangiogenic, or stroma-modifying agents, would perform
better or worse remains to be defined.
"Humans are the one species the world could do very well
without."
"[T]he moralists of Europe [have] pretended that beasts have
no rights... a doctrine revolting/gross/barbarous... on which a
native of the Asiatic uplands could not look without righteous
horror..."
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being
self-evident."
Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness
of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is
cruel to animals cannot be a good man.
I know of no more beautiful prayer than that which the Hindus
of old used in closing: May all that have life be delivered from
suffering.
The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion
that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a
positively outrageous example of Western crudity and
barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of
morality.
Kids nowadays...tend to go overboard on protein --- something
I believe to be totally unnecsssary...I state in my formula for
basic good eating: Eat about one gram of protein for every two
pounds of body weight.
"No one may shut his eyes to think the pain, which is therefore
not visible to him, is non-existent."
"To the truly ethical man, all of life is sacred, including forms
of life that from the human point of view may seem lower than
ours."
A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that
of plants and animals as well as that of his fellowman, and
when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of
help.
Any religion or philosophy which is not based on a respect for
life is not a true religion or philosophy.
By ethical conduct toward all creatures, we enter into a spiritual
relationship with the universe.
Hear our prayer O Lord ... for animals that are overworked,
underfed, and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in
captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are
hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that
must be put to death.... And for those who deal with them we
ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us true friends of the animals and so to share the
blessings of the merciful.
I must interpret the life about me as I interpret the life that is
my own. My life is full of meaning to me. The life around me
must be full of significance to itself. If I am to expect others to
respect my life, then I must respect the other life I see, however
strange it may be to mine. . . . We need a boundless ethics
which will include the animals also.
It is the fate of every truth to be an object of ridicule when it is
first acclaimed. It was once considered foolish to suppose that
black men were really human beings and ought to be treated as
such. What was once foolish has now become a recognized
truth. Today it is considered as exaggeration to proclaim
constant respect for every form of life as being the serious
demand of a rational ethic. But the time is coming when people
will be amazed that the human race existed so long before it
recognized that thoughtless injury to life is incompatible with
real ethics. Ethics is in its unqualified form extended
responsibility to everything that has life.
Let no one regard as light the burden of his responsibility.
While so much ill-treatment of animals goes on, while the
moans of thirsty animals in railway trucks sound unheard,
while so much brutality prevails in our slaughterhouses ... we
all bear guilt. Everything that lives has value as a living thing,
as one of the manifestations of the mystery that is life.
The human spirit is not dead. It lives on in secret.... It has
come to believe that compassion, in which all ethics must take
root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all
living creatures and does not limit itself to mankind.
The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how
deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we
have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into
the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to
renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing
justifies.
Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself
the sight.
Very little of the great cruelty shown by men can really be
attributed to cruel instinct. Most of it comes from
thoughtlessness or inherited habit. The roots of cruelty,
therefore, are not so much strong as widespread. But the time
must come when inhumanity protected by custom and
thoughtlessness will succumb before humanity championed by
thought. Let us work that this time may come.
We are compelled by the commandment of love contained in
our hearts and thought, and proclaimed by Jesus, to give rein to
our natural sympathy for animals. We are also compelled to
help them and spare them suffering.
We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with
which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do.
True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on
them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it.
Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things,
humanity will not find peace.
We should live in harmony with Earth not conquer it.. or the
animals. The other members of the National Football League
say I'm in the minority.. but they are. A majority of the world is
vegetarian.
Each chef in this murder mystery dies in the way he prepares
his premier dish. Thus one is dropped like a lobster into boiling
water. Another is sliced and diced etc.
...[I]t is a terrible thing that religious people today can be so
indifferent to the cruelty of the farms, shrugging it off as so
much secular, animal rights foolishness. They above all should
hear the call to mercy. They above all should have some
kindness to spare. They above all should be mindful of the little
things, seeing, in the suffering of these creatures, the same hand
that has chosen all the foolish things of the world to confound
the wise, and the weak things to confound the things which are
strong. 'Who so poor,' asked Anna Kingsford more than a
century ago, 'so oppressed, so helpless, so mute and uncared
for, as the dumb creatures who serve us -- they who, but for us,
must starve, and who have no friend on earth if man be their
enemy?
Americans consume, on average, 51 pounds of chicken every
year, 15 pounds of turkey, 63 pounds of beef, 45 pounds of
pork, 1 pound of veal, and 1 pound of lamb. 'More than ever,'
reports our U.S. Department of Agriculture, 'we are a nation of
meat eaters.' And now, with help from Dr. Atkins and his
wonder diet, we have millions of consumers gorging
themselves on nothing but flesh, one excess to correct their
other excesses -- no thought whatever of taking their portion of
meat even if we grant that meat production and the sufferings
involved are necessary.
In fact, let us call things what they are. When a man's love of
finery clouds his moral judgment, that is vanity. When he lets a
demanding palate make his moral choices, that is gluttony.
When he ascribes the divine will to his own whims, that is
pride. And when he gets angry at being reminded of animal
suffering that his own daily choices might help avoid, that is
moral cowardice.
"Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."
The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion
that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a
positively outrageous example of Western cruelty and
barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of
morality.
... Insatiable, unfathomable, gluttony searches every land and
every sea. Some animals it persecutes with snares and traps,
with hunting nets, with hooks, sparing no sort of toil to obtain
them . . . There is no peace allowed to any species of being . . .
No wonder that with so discordant diet disease is ever varying.
. . Count the cooks you will no longer wonder at the
innumerable number of human maladies. … If these maxims
are true, the Pythagorean principles as to abstaining from flesh
foster innocence; if ill-founded they at least teach us frugality,
and what loss have you in losing your cruelty? I merely deprive
you of the food of lions and vultures ... We shall recover our
sound reason only if we shall separate ourselves from the herd -
the very fact of the approbation of the multitude is a proof of
the unsoundness of the opinion or practice. Let us ask what is
best, not what is customary. Let us love temperance - let us be
just - let us refrain from bloodshed. None is so near the gods as
he who shows kindness.

How long shall we weary heaven with petitions for superfluous
luxuries, as though we had not at hand wherewithal to feed
ourselves? How long shall we fill our plains with huge cities?
How long shall the people slave for us unnecessarily? How
long shall countless numbers of ships from every sea bring us
provisions for the consumption of a single mouth? An ox is
satisfied with the pasture of an acre or two; one wood suffices
for several elephants. Man alone supports himself by the
pillage of the whole earth and sea. What! Has Nature indeed
given us so insatiable a stomach, while she has given us such
insignificant bodies? No, it is not the hunger of our stomachs,
but insatiable covetousness which costs so much. … In the
simpler times there was no need of so large a supernumerary
force of medical men, nor of so many surgical instruments or of
so many boxes of drugs. Health was simple for a simple reason.
Many dishes have induced many diseases. Note how vast a
quantity of lives one stomach absorbs ...
Every particle of factual evidence supports the factual
contention that the higher mammalian vertebrates experience
pain sensations at least as acute as our own. To say that they
feel pain less because they are lower animals is an absurdity; it
can easily be shown that many of their senses are far more
acute than ours - visual acuity in certain birds, hearing in most
wild animals, and touch in others; these animals depend more
than we do today on a the sharpest possible awareness of a
hostile environment. Apart from the complexity of the cerebral
cortex (which does not directly perceive pain) their nervous
systems are almost identical to ours and their reaction to pain
remarkably similar, though lacking (so far as we know) the
philosophical and moral overtones. The emotional element is
all too evident, mainly in the form of fear and anger.
"There is no religion without love. If it does not teach to be
good and kind to beast as well as man it is all a sham."
He is a heavy eater of beef. Methinks it doth harm to his wit.
"We are all victims of the violence that animals suffer... their
liberation is also our liberation."
A man of my spiritual intensity does not eat corpses.
A mind of the calibre of mine cannot derive its nutriment from
cows.
Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends.
Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories
and are call medical research.
Human beings are the only animals of which I am throughly
and cravenly afraid.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion-tamer. Inside the
cage he is at least safe from people.
If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth --
beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you
feel yourself to be to other animals -- would you concede them
the rights over you that you assume over other animals?
If a guinea pig may be sacrificed for the sake of the very little
that can be learnt from it, shall not a man be sacrificed for the
sake of the great deal that can be learnt from him?"
My situation is a solemn one. Life is offered to me on
condition of eating beefsteaks. But death is better than
cannibalism. My will contains directions for my funeral, which
will be followed not by mourning coaches, but by oxen, sheep,
flocks of poultry, and a small traveling aquarium of live fish,
all wearing white scarves in honor of the man who perished
rather than eat his fellow creatures.
The Anti-Vivisector does not deny that physiologists must
make experiments and even take chances with new methods.
He says that they must not seek knowledge by criminal
methods, just as they must not make money by criminal
methods. He does not object to Galileo dropping cannon balls
from the top of the leaning tower of Pisa; but he would object
to shoving off two dogs or American tourists.
The average age (longevity) of a meat eater is 63. I am on the
verge of 85 and still work as hard as ever. I have lived quite
long enough and am trying to die; but I simply cannot do it. A
single beef-steak would finish me; but I cannot bring myself to
swallow it. I am oppressed with a dread of living forever. That
is the only disadvantage of vegetarianism.
The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them,
but to be indifferent to them, that's the essence of inhumanity.
Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human
knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character.
When a man wants to murder a tiger it is called a sport, when
the tiger wants to murder him it is called ferocity.
While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts,
how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth?
If the use of animal food be, in consequence, subversive to the
peace of human society, how unwarrantable is the injustice and
the barbarity which is exercised toward these miserable
victims. They are called into existence by human artifice that
they may drag out a short and miserable existence of slavery
and disease, that their bodies may be mutilated, their social
feelings outraged. It were much better that a sentient being
should never have existed, than that it should have existed only
to endure unmitigated misery.
It is only by softening and disguising dead flesh by culinary
preparation that it is rendered susceptible of mastication or
digestion, and that the sight of its bloody juices and raw horror
does not excite intolerable loathing and disgust.
Never again may blood of bird or beast/ Stain with its
venomous stream a human feast,/ To the pure skies in
accusation steaming. ―I wish no living thing to suffer pain."
No longer now/ He slays the lamb that looks him in the face,/
And horribly devours his mangled flesh;/ Which, still avenging
nature's broken law,/ Kindled all putrid humours in his frame,/
All evil passions, and all vain belief,/ Hatred, despair, and
loathing in his mind,/ The germs of misery, death, disease, and
crime.‖
I would expect an extremely high percentage of the chickens
would test positive. Our poultry industry clients wouldn't like
that.
Gambling, eating meat, wine-bibbing, adultery, hunting,
thieving, debauchery - these seven things in this world lead to
the hells.
Mercy to living beings, self restraint, truth, honesty, chastity
and contentment, right faith and knowledge, and austerity are
but the entourage of morality.
Animals are being exploited in such an unbelievable way; it's
not acceptable. PETA is trying to get your attention, and they're
successful at it. ... If you talk to people who grew up on a farm,
they'll tell you that they had an experience where they were
taking care of a cow, and one day their parents took it away and
killed it. It's a torturous experience for them, and that's when
they became hard. People are taught to be grown-up or
whatever, and that's dumb. That bond they had with that cow or
chicken was real.
Being vegan helped me realize I can say and do what I believe
is right. That's powerful.
I don't have any understanding of a human being who doesn't
respect the beauty of life and that goes for all creatures that
have thoughts, feelings and needs.
I know what it feels like to be hurt, and I don't want to cause
that pain to any other person or creature. But somehow, in
society, we numb ourselves in order to make money or to feel
better about ourselves, such as with cosmetics or food. We say
to ourselves, I'm going to use this animal. I'm going to say it
doesn't have much worth so that I can allow myself to do these
cruel things. And that just isn't fair.
Not that I say,"Oh, I'm not going to associate with certain
people," but I have my world, and I only want to be around
people who I feel stimulated by. I have to be honest I do have a
new quest: I want to meet more vegetarians, people who are
more like minded. There's something real neat about that
feeling. It makes you feel so settled to know there's somebody
else sitting right there, being so passionate about what I'm
passionate about. I don't want to be around selfish people. I try
to keep myself surrounded by deep people who will move me.
Nothing‘s changed my life more. I feel better about myself as a
person, being conscious and responsible for my actions and I
lost weight and my skin cleared up and I got bright eyes and I
just became stronger and healthier and happier. Can‘t think of
anything better in the world to be but be vegan.
Once people spend time with farm animals in a loving way ... a
pig or cow or a little chicken or a turkey, they might find they
relate with them the same way they relate with dogs and cats.
People don't really think of them that way because they're on
the plate. Why should they be food when other animals are
pets? I would never eat my doggies.
Prince Charming is very nice and very honest and very
confident in who he is and funny and knows how to have a kick-
ass fun time. Is willing to melt away so that nothing else exists
in the world except himself and his princess and loves food and
cats and every life form except human beings which is not
necessary.
We always had dogs, so I understood all the joy and the love
animals are capable of giving. It's crazy to me that some people
have dogs in thier homes, but they treat them more like
furniture.
I don't eat any animals or anything that has to do with animals.
No fish or egg or dairy because I personally don't feel it's a
good practice to eat anything that might run away from you.
My wife, Kimora, once told me while we were watching The
Texas Chainsaw Massacre that that's a vegetarian movie. The
way that woman was screaming, "Aaaahhh," and she's running
away that's how every animal you eat is running for his life ...
Science that fails to embrace all living beings is far more
dangerous than any virus!
The shriek was followed by another, louder and yet more
agonizing..for once started upon that journey, the hog never
came back. One by one the men hooked up the hogs and slit
their throats. There was a line of hogs with squeals and
lifeblood ebbing away.. until at last each vanished into a huge
vat of boiling water (some still alive). The hogs were so
innocent. They came so very trustingly. They were so very
human in their protests. They had done nothing to deserve it.
"We know now, as we have always known instinctively, that
animals can suffer as much as human beings. Their emotions
and their sensitivity are often stronger than those of a human
being."
As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures
there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people.
Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.
CAVETT: "Are you saying that you think the life of a mosquito
has the same worth as the life of a man?"
SINGER: "I have seen no evidence to the contrary."
Even in the worm that crawls in the earth there glows a divine
spark. When you slaughter a creature, you slaughter God.
I did not become a vegetarian for my health, I did it for the
health of the chickens.
In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Nazis.
Human beings see oppression vividly when they're the victims.
Otherwise they victimize blindly and without a thought. The
smugness with which man could do with other species as he
pleased exemplified the most extreme racist theories, the
principle that might is right.
No lepidopterist's collection in the entire world...full if
iridescent wings, is worth the life of a single butterfly.
People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if
this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to
this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering
other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of
times.
The same questions are bothering me today as they did fifty
years ago. Why is one born? Why does one suffer? In my case,
the suffering of animals also makes me very sad. I‘m a
vegetarian, you know. When I see how little attention people
pay to animals, and how easily they make peace with man
being allowed to do with animals whatever he wants because
he keeps a knife or a gun, it gives me a feeling of misery and
sometimes anger with the Almighty. I say ‗Do you need your
glory to be connected with so much suffering of creatures
without glory, just innocent creatures who would like to pass a
few years in peace?‘ I feel that animals are as bewildered as we
are except that they have no words for it. I would say that all
life is asking: ‗What am I doing here?‘
There will be no justice as long as man will stand with a knife
or with a gun and destroy those who are weaker than he is.
To be a vegetarian is to disagree -- to disagree with the course
of things today. Starvation, world hunger, cruelty, waste, wars --
we must make a statement against these things. Vegetarianism
is my statement. And I think it's a strong one.
What do they know--all these scholars, all these philosophers,
all the leaders of the world--about such as you? They have
convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all
the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were
created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be
tormented, exterminated. In relation to them, all people are
Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka.
When a human being kills an animal for food, he is neglecting
his own hunger for justice. Man prays for mercy, but is
unwilling to extend it to others. Why then should man expect
mercy from God? It is unfair to expect something that you are
not willing to give.
[T]hose who claim to care about the well-being of human
beings and the preservation of our environment should become
vegetarians for that reason alone. They would thereby increase
the amount of grain available to feed people everywhere,
reduce pollution, save water and energy, and cease contributing
to the clearing of forests; moreover, since a vegetarian diet is
cheaper than one based on meat dishes, they would have more
money available to devote to famine relief, population control,
or whatever social or political cause they thought most urgent.
…[W]hen non-vegetarians say that "human problems come
first," I cannot help wondering what exactly it is that they are
doing for human beings that compels them to continue to
support the wasteful, ruthless exploitation of farm animals.
All the arguments to prove man's superiority can not shatter
this hard fact: In suffering, the animals are our equals.
An animal experiment cannot be justifiable unless the
experiment is so important that the use of a brain-damaged
human would be justifiable.
Animal factories are one more sign of the extent to which our
technological capacities have advanced faster than our ethics.
For most humans, especially for those in modern urban and
suburban communities, the most direct form of contact with
nonhuman animals is at meal time: we eat them.... The use and
abuse of animals raised for food far exceeds, in sheer numbers
of animals affected, any other kind of mistreatment.
In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held
to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but
people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased.
Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as
150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human
beings could be captured, shipped to America and sold. In
Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and
hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down
today. Just as we have progressed beyond the blatantly racist
ethic of the era of slavery and colonialism, so we must now
progress beyond the speciesist ethic of the era of factory
farming, of the use of animals as mere research tools, of
whaling, seal hunting, kangaroo slaughter and the destruction
of wilderness. We must take the final step in expanding the
circle of ethics.
Those who, by their purchases, require animals to be killed
have no right to be shielded from the slaughterhouse or any
other aspect of the production of the meat they buy. If it is
distasteful for humans to think about, what can it be like for the
animals to experience it?
Vegetarianism is a way of living consciously on the planet.
We crossed the Embarras River and encamped on a small
branch of the same about one mile west. In pitching my tent we
found three massasaugas or prairie rattlesnakes, which the
brethren were about to kill, but I said, ‗Let them alone—don‘t
hurt them! How will the serpent ever lose his venom, while the
servants of God possess the same disposition and continue to
make war upon it? Men must become harmless, before the
brute creation; and when men lose their vicious dispositions
and cease to destroy the animal race, the lion and the lamb can
dwell together, and the sucking child can play with the serpent
in safety.
Socrates: Would this habit of eating animals not require that we
slaughter animals that we knew as individuals, and in whose
eyes we could gaze and see ourselves reflected, only a few
hours before our meal? Glaucon: This habit would require that
of us. Socrates: Wouldn't this [knowledge of our role in turning
a being into a thing] hinder us in achieving happiness?
Glaucon: It could so hinder us in our quest for happiness.
Socrates: And, if we pursue this way of living, will we not have
need to visit the doctor more often? Glaucon: We would have
such need. Socrates: If we pursue our habit of eating animals,
and if our neighbor follows a similar path, will we not have
need to go to war against our neighbor to secure greater
pasturage, because ours will not be enough to sustain us, and
our neighbor will have a similar need to wage war on us for the
same reason? Glaucon: We would be so compelled. Socrates:
Would not these facts prevent us from achieving happiness, and
therefore the conditions necessary to the building of a just
society, if we pursue a desire to eat animals? Glaucon: Yes,
they would so prevent us.
I decided that God is testing us, to show us that we are no
better than animals. After all, the same fate awaits man and
animals alike. One dies just like the other. They are the same
kind of creature. A human being is no better off than an animal
… How can anyone be sure that a man's spirit goes upward
while an animal's spirit goes down into the ground?
The righteous one regards the life of his animal but the heart of
the wicked is without mercy.
The first time I ever entered a battery house I thought it was the
entrance to Hell
Humans are the only hunters who kill when not hungry.
"I don't see us as saints and them as sinners; one sees a universe
of pain and suffering and asks what can one do."
My dream is that people will come to view eating an animal as
cannibalism.
Never deceive the media or the public. Credibility is all we
have to go on. Nothing gets done without total commitment
and outrage mixed with political realism. Never assume
anything: Check everything out yourself, at the source.
Establish the credibility that when we start something, we
finish it. With such track record, we then move to bigger
struggles and more significant victories. No congressional bill
or legal gimmickry by itself will save the animals. The courts
can, at best, open up the possibility for us to intervene in
defense of animals, but the courts will not act until effective
protests disrupt the system's orderly operation.
I no longer recommend dairy products...there was a time when
cow's milk was considered very desirable. But research along
with clinical experience has forced doctors and nutritionists to
rethink this recommendation.'
Institutional Christianity seems fearful of inquiry, fearful of
freedom, fearful of knowledge -- indeed, fearful of anything
except its own repetitious propaganda, which has its origins in
a world that none of us any longer inhabits.
Non-injury, truthfulness, freedom from theft, lust, anger and
greed, and an effort to do what is agreeable and beneficial to all
creatures - this is the common duty of all castes. … To be non-
violent to human beings and to be a killer or enemy of the poor
animals is Satan's philosophy. In this age there is always enmity
against poor animals and therefore the poor creatures are
always anxious. The reaction of the poor animals is being
forced on human society and therefore there is always the strain
of cold or hot war between men, individually, collectively or
nationally.
"'Violence' vs. Passivism: Last Century's 'Underground
Railroad' illegally helped human slaves escape from bondage.
They recognized the laws that legalized slavery were morally
wrong and should not be legitimized with compliance. They
risked their own freedom by violating the property rights of
slave owners and leading slaves to freedom. Today, the Animal
Liberation Front (ALF) risk their freedom to liberate innocent
animals that are immorally abused/injured/murdered by actions
that violate the property rights of animal abusers. Animals are
covertly removed from danger and placed in foster care
facilities. Torturing equipment like stereotaxic
devices/decapitators/restraining devices, etc. are damaged or
destroyed to prevent their further use. No human or non-human
animal is ever harmed in any way."
"We have those who would like us to stay popular by not
taking stands against hunting, fur, and animal use in research.
But something a very wise man once said to me always repeats
itself loudly: 'You fail because you become so focused on the
little dog or cat at your feet, that not looking up, you fail to see
the nation of animals who are suffering.'"
The life spark in my eyes is in no way different than the life
spark in the eyes of any other sentient being.
The basis of all animal rights should be the Golden Rule: we
should treat them as we would wish them to treat us, were any
other species in our dominant position.
Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism,
yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and
vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own.
We consume the carcasses of creatures of like appetites,
passions and organs with our own, and fill the slaughterhouses
daily with screams of fear and pain.
You cannot run away from awareness; you must some time
fight it out or perish. And if you be so, why not now and where
you stand?
Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a
camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gunsight. And
after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims are still
around for others to enjoy. I have developed a deep respect for
animals. I consider them fellow living creatures with certain
rights that should not be violated any more than those of
humans.
"Thirty years ago cancer in children was regarded as a medical
rarity. Today more children are dying of cancer than any other
disease. The increase in harmful effects on health seems
paradoxically to go hand in hand with an increase in the
number of scientists."

"A medical myth is an aggressive defensive device used by
orthodox medicine to retain the status quo and impede progress
in the introduction of new and valuable therapies. ....The myth
originates in some inadequate sloppy in vitro or animal
experimental work from which unwarranted broad conclusions
are drawn as to possible effects on man. There is never any
hard human evidence involved, just pure speculation. The
second step is that the news media pick it up and being more
interested in sensationalism than in facts, magnify these
speculations and terrify a gullible public. Further repetition of
these unwarranted conclusions by the medical press gives them
the status of medical dogma to be quoted and requoted."--

Since its inception 25 years ago, EPA [the US Environmental
Protection Agency] has applied the same logic to hundreds of
other substances, extrapolating from high levels in animal
studies to arrive at acceptable levels for humans. But that
approach, say scientists both inside and outside the federal
government, may no longer be the best way to safeguard public
health...EPA's new emphasis on molecular data is based on a
growing body of evidence that extrapolations from megadoses
can provide a misleading picture of the effects of low-level
exposure. Chloroform is a good example. EPA's current strict
standards were derived from a study in which mice developed
liver tumors after exposure to massive daily doses of
chloroform pumped into their stomachs over several months.
However, those findings may not be relevant to human
exposures, according to a paper picked by the Society of
Toxicology as the best published last year in its journal.
It's a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong,
something the best people have always done.
We should remember in our dealings with animals that they are
a sacred trust to us from our heavenly Father. They are dumb
and cannot speak for themselves.
Some people are still going to want to eat meat.. we do agree
though that vegetarianism is a healthier diet.
There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth, nor a being that
flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you.
Nothing have We omitted from the Book, and they (all) shall
be gathered to their Lord in the end.
He who harms animals has not understood or renounced deeds
of sin ... Those whose minds are at peace and who are free from
passions do not desire to live at the expense of others.
All beings hate pains; therefore one should not kill them. This
is the quintessence of wisdom: not to kill anything.
All breathing, existing, living, sentient creatures should not be
slain nor treated with violence, nor abused, nor tormented, nor
driven away. This is the pure unchangeable law.
Let him not destroy, or cause to be destroyed, any life at all, nor
sanction the acts of those who do so. Let him refrain from even
hurting any creature, both those that are strong and those that
tremble in the world.
You are not handling a lump of plastic. You are handling
animals with central nervous systems that feel pain and
suffering.
"Horrors that only a few years ago belonged in the realm of
dystopian science fiction have become common place in today's
world - genetically engineered Frankenstein foods are forced
down our throats by governments and corporations; animals
soaked in a bath of poisonous growth hormones are slaughtered
in the name of a quick buck and increased profit; vast
warehouses of 'bio-machines' (better known to you and I as
pigs) lie in darkness, ready to be harvested for their organs for
human transplants; the country side is dotted with concrete
bunkers where bloodied vivisectors tirelessly work their way
through the guts and viscera of endless animal victims! The
horrors are seemingly endless... but they are NOT inevitable!"
We manage to swallow flesh only because we do not think of
the cruel and sinful thing that we do. Cruelty... is a
fundamental sin, and admits of no arguments or nice
distinctions. If only we do not allow our heart to grow callous,
it protests against cruelty, is always clearly heard; and yet we
go on perpetrating cruelties easily, merrily, all of us - in fact,
anyone who does not join in is dubbed a crank.
The very fact that companion animals are so highly regarded
raises difficult issues for agricultural and performance animal
doctors. Some of these animals are not markedly different in
their mental capacities from many companion animals. At a
time the profession seeks to promote companion animals as
members of the family, to what extent must it also advocate the
interests of its food, farm, and performance animal patients?. . .
Nevertheless, discussions devoid of attention to animal
interests are appearing with frequency in the literature
espousing the model of the veterinarian as herd health
consultant.
Great God make us friends of the animals. Make us responsible
co-inhabitants with them of this fruitful planet. In our dealings
with animals, may we be generous; may we exercise our power
with compassion and avoid brutality; may we never debase
them; may we never use their flesh or their skins wastefully to
enhance our appearance; may we respect their right to a good
life in their own habitat. In our dealings with animals may we
remember that all life is mysterious and precious and God-
given and that we are honored and blessed by their presence
among us.
The fur industry butchers animals and pollutes our
environment. I could never wear fur.
"On which account the banquet of Pythagoras, is much more
pleasant and desirable, than that of Socrates: for the latter of
these affirmed, that hunger was the sauce of food; but
Pythagoras asserted, that to injure no one, and to act justly, was
the sweetest of all banquets."
Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals "love" them. But
those who respect their natures and wish to let them live
normal lives, love them more.
From 676 to 737 A.D., under the Japanese emperor Tenmu, the
eating of all meat, including fish, was outlawed in Japan. From
737 A.D. until the late 19th century the eating of all meat other
than seafood was not permitted. But even then, fish was
generally only eaten by most people on special occasions.
Dogen, the founder of the Soto Zen school of Buddhism, the
main sect of Zen Buddhism, in the 12th century, instituted the
requirements of a vegan diet for all his students, and that
practice is still followed by observant Zen practitioners.
"He who toward all living things is kind... Ah! He indeed will
true religion find."
I come from a country where starvation is huge, AIDS is huge,
so I'm very aware of people suffering and I'm involved in those
issues as well. I started the first anti-rape campaign in South
Africa years ago, when nobody talked about rape. But one is
not more important to me than another. My mother used to say,
'You have to fight for things that don't have a voice.'
We don't live the lives of Eskimos. We don't need to kill
animals for fashion.
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and
pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve
its life than destroy it.
I cannot fish without falling a little in self-respect...always
when I have done I feel it would have been better if I had not
fished.no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human

race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as
surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other when
they came into contact with the more civilized. Walden, 1854
I saw deep in the eyes of the animals the human soul look out
upon me. I saw where it was born deep down under feathers
and fur, or condemned for a while to roam four-footed among
the brambles I caught the clinging mute glance of the prisoner
and swore that I would be faithful.
If...the machine of government...is of such a nature that it
requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say,
break the law.
It may be vain to ask why the imagination will not be
reconciled to flesh and fat. I am satisfied that it is not. Is it not a
reproach that man is a carnivorous animal? True, he can and
does live, in a great measure, by preying on other animals; but
this is a miserable way - as anyone who will go to snaring
rabbits, or slaughtering lambs, may learn - and he will be
regarded as a benefactor of his race who shall teach man to
confine himself to a more innocent and wholesome diet.
No humane being, past the thoughtless age of boyhood, should
wantonly murder any creature which holds its life by the same
tenure that he does.
One farmer says to me, "You cannot live on vegetable food
solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with;" and so
he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself
with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks
behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him
and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.
The inhumanity of science concerns me, as when I was tempted
to kill a rare snake that I may ascertain its species. I feel that
this is not the means of acquiring true knowledge.

The squirrel that you kill in jest, dies in earnest.

"Death Watch. I wish I hadn't watched it, when I sprayed, From
circling flight it fell upon my quilt. Its insect hands plucked at
its mouth, assayed To take out toxin, and a human's guilt. Then
wavering antenna met like hands in prayer. It shuddered some,
but made no move to fly; Just bowed its head in posture of
despair. Remorsefully I watched the creature die!"
"So keep at it [animal rights fight] and keep cool. We are not
trying to achieve the impossible. We are trying to accelerate the
inevitable."
Reform vs. Abolition: Some reformers waste their time
condemning abolitionists as standing in the way of achievable
gain, while some abolitionists are busy condemning reformers
as betrayers of the cause. But the issue is not about
philosophical purity vs. practical accomplishment; it is about
identifying one's arena of activity and working in the manner
appropriate for that arena.
Think of me tonite, For that which you savor. Did it give you

flavor?
"If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of
abstinence is from injury to animals."
"Thou shalt not kill" does not apply to murder of one's own
kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was
inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed
from Sinai. It's clear that our Creator doesn't condone cruelty to
animals in any way. "Thou shalt not kill" could have been
written "Thou shalt not kill thy fellow man." Instead, it was all
inclusive, highlighting the sanctity of life no matter what the
species.
A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food;
therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life
merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.
As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields.
If he be really and seriously seeking to live a good life, the first
thing from which he will abstain will always be the use of
animal food, because ...its use is simply immoral, as it involves
the performance of an act which is contrary to the moral feeling
-- killing.
Man by violating his own feelings becomes cruel. And how
deeply seated in the human heart is the injunction not to take
life.
What I think about vivisection is that if people admit that they
have the right to take or endanger the life of living beings for
the benefit of many, there will be no limit to their cruelty.
The liberation of animal life can only be achieved through the
radical transformation of human consciousness and the
overthrow of the existing power structure.
Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by
What is above him when he shows no mercy to what is under
him?
According to the group People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals, fish have feelings too. Whenever my sons go fishing
they always tell me, "Dad it doesn't hurt a fish to get hooked."
Well I watch and I see and I believe it's painful for the fish.
Refrain at all times from such foods as cannot be procured
without violence and oppression. For know that all the inferior
creatures when hurt do cry and send forth the complaints to
their Maker or grand Fountain whence they proceeded. Be not
insensible that every creature does bear the Image of the great
Creator according to the Nature of each, and that He is the Vital
Power in all things. Therefore let none take pleasure to offer
violence to that life, lest he awaken the fierce wrath and bring
danger to his own soul.
The inferior creatures groan under your cruelties. You hunt
them for your pleasure, and overwork them for your
covetousness, and kill them for your gluttony, and set them to
fight one with another till they die, and count it a sport and a
pleasure to behold them worry one another.
The standard carcinogenicity bioassay, which involves treating
two rodent species for a minimum of 2 years, at a range of
doses, is acknowledged to be an insensitive tool because of the
background `noise' of spontaneous disease. Most strains of rat
used in such studies have high incidence of pituitary and
mammary tumours; some inbred rat strains frequently develop
leukaemia or testicular tumours; mice strains show high
incidence of malignant lymphomas and liver tumours.

"Often it does seem a pity that Noah and his party didn't miss
the boat. Heaven is by favor; if it were by merit, your dog

I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces
results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't...The
pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of
my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of
the enmity without looking further.
If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will
not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and
a man.
In studying the traits and dispositions of the so-called lower
animals, and contrasting them with man's, I find the result
humiliating to me.
It is just like man's vanity and impertinence to call an animal
dumb because it is dumb to his dull perceptions.
Loyalty to a petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a
human soul.
Of all the creatures ever made, Man is the most detestable. He
is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be
pain.
The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his
intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that
he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creatures
that cannot.
I don't eat meat, fish, or eggs. I was never a big meat-eater, but
I've got more energy now," says Shania, who hasn't eaten an
animal since she married longtime vegetarian (and record
producer) Mutt Lange.
I love to cook. Very healthy eating. ..." Twain also forgoes
meat, dairy, and eggs. "Nothing," she declares, "that had to

I think there's something odd about eating another living
anything.
"The Protecting Animals in Democracy campaign is a vital
effort to represent both the political status of nonhuman

Forty thousand children starve to death each day in the Third
World. One fifth of the children in the poorer countries die of

"Are animal rights people extremists? Do you think it's not
extreme to torture/murder living creatures for lipstick? Do you
think it's not extreme to breed more dogs and cats while 7
million die in shelters each year? Do you think it's not extreme
to torture/murder a living creature to wear their dead skins?
Finally, do you think it's not extreme to torture living creatures
without their consent to make a living? If we are ALL
extremists. I prefer to be an extremist for justice, compassion
and peace, and not for pain, murder, rape and oppression."
"Congressman Robert Torricelli gave a speech on how to get
your Congressperson to co-sponsor and support legislation you
want. The Congressman's advice was to pester the life out of
your representative. Write/phone and, if possible, visit his/her
office. Bring others with you if you can, to show more support.
Keep up the pressure, and encourage as many others as you can
to do the same until the Congressperson becomes inundated
with letters and phone calls. He reminded us that the other side
works very hard to stop legislation that would benefit animals,
and we must work just as hard, or even harder, if we want these
bills to pass."
"He [the truly ethical man] breaks no leaf from the tree, plucks

insect after insect falling on his table with singed wings. If after
a rain he is walking on the road and sees an earthworm gone
astray, he remembers it will dry up in the sun if it does not get
back in time to the earth into which it can burrow, and helps it
from the fatal stones into the grass. If he comes upon an insect
fallen into a puddle, he takes time to save it by extending a leaf
or a stalk to it. He is not afraid of being laughed at as
sentimental. It is the fate of every truth to be ridiculed before it
is recognized. It was once considered stupid to think colored
men were really human and must be treated humanely. The
time is coming when people will be amazed that it took so long
for mankind to recognize that thoughtless injury to life is
incompatible with ethics."
"In a real way, we must share at least some of the blame and
guilt for the killing (of animals) if we do not do ALL we can to
stop it! Rather than sacrificing that high ground, thoughtfully-
selected direct action affirms it. A few hours in jail, or even
days, is NOTHING compared to a day at the slaughterhouse,
the research lab or the fur farm."
"It may be noble, even spiritually uplifting, to forgive one's
own personal enemies. The Dailai Lama appears to have done
so. And Christ certainly exemplified that ideal. But it is sheer
complicity to forgive enemies of other innocent victims."
"Let's NOT forget the billions of animals that suffer and die
because of the human race."
"Man's inhumanity to man is only surpassed by his cruelty to
animals!"
Sad many wonderful activists abandon our cause when getting
older! Keep in mind this anonymous golden thought:
'NOBODY GROWS OLD BY MERELY LIVING A
NUMBER OF YEARS; PEOPLE GROW OLD BY
DESERTING THEIR IDEALS!'"
The Bell of Justice'. In an old city in Italy, its king had installed
a bell in the public square. Anyone wrongly treated would ring
it and get justice. After many years the bell rope rotted away so
it was tied with a wild vine to make it longer. One day an
abandoned/old/starving horse wandered into the square, took a
mouthful hungrily of the vine... and the bell rang! The king
hurried to the square and saw an old/thin/hungry horse and said
he should have justice. He immediately summoned the owner
and ordered him to look after his old horse, to give him good
food and water, a proper stable and peace and if he didn't he
would be punished! Justice was done and all the citizens felt
their magistrate acted wisely."
What a shame not to do anything with the excuse that we can't
do it all!"

A Society of Three Legged Animals: for those who love meat
but don't want to kill.
Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you, so guide
our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we
may be wholly yours, utterly dedicated to you; and then use us,
we pray, as you will, and always to your glory and the welfare
of your creatures; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Amen.
Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion
are in a special position to understand the awfulness of
innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God¹s absolute
identification with the weak, the powerless and the vulnerable,
but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent
suffering. Neither are we so hardhearted as to believe that the
earth was created for us alone.... Out of the dark and out of
formlessness You brought forth life; Teach us to know Your
greatness by Your creatures, That Your tender mercy is upon
them all, Teach us to live likewise So that every living creature,
Every beast of the field and fowl of the air. May praise You,
and our voice be among them.
Cockfighting was illegal in Oklahoma until 1963, when a judge

For hundreds of thousands of years the stew in the pot has
brewed hatred and resentment that is difficult to stop. If you
wish to know why there are disasters of armies and weapons in
the world, listen to the piteous cries from the slaughter house at
midnight.
Gracious God, the comfort of all who sorrow, the strength of
all who suffer: Let the cry of those in misery and need come to
you, that they may find your mercy present with them in all
their afflictions; and give us, we pray, the strength to serve
them for the sake of him who suffered for us, your Son Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.
I ask for the privilege of not being born ...not to be born until
you can assure me of a home and a master to protect me, and a
right to live as long as I am physically able to enjoy life...not to
be born until my body is precious and men have ceased to
exploit it because it is cheap and plentiful.
I eat everything that nature voluntarily gives: fruits, vegetables,
and the products of plants. But I ask you to spare me what
animals are forced to surrender: meat, milk, and cheese.
I think and speak clearer since I cut the dairy out. I can breathe
better and perform at a better rate, and my voice is clearer. I can
explore different things with my voice that I couldn't do
because of my meat and dairy ingestion. I am proud and
blessed to be a vegetarian, everything became clear.
I'm ashamed to even let people know I am a Usda inspector.

In darkest night, blessed God, be near us and those in captivity
for whom we pray. Quiet their hearts from fear and despair
with the comfort of your presence. Keep them in hope and
good courage. Turn the hearts and hands of their captors from
violence and hate. Speedily bring those we love to liberation
and homecoming. And do not forsake us in the time of waiting
and great distress, we pray through Jesus your child, who also
was led captive and in whom our souls find eternal freedom.
Amen.
In loving kindness You have redeemed us again and again, In

May those who oppose capital punishment for humans extend
that protection to animals as well . May those who oppose germ
and other biological warfare work to end the unconscious
biological warfare unwittingly waged on those who eat animal
products. Those who are pro-life would logically become
vegetarian. Those who are pro-choice would not want to
impose their wills upon the body of a cow, sheep or pig.

Would you kill your pet dog or cat to eat it? How about an
animal you're not emotionally attached to? Is the thought of
slaughtering a cow or chicken or pig with your own hands too
much to handle? Instead, would hiring a hit-man to do the job
give you enough distance from the emotional discomfort?
What animal did you put a contract out on for your supper last
night? Did you at least make sure that none went to waste and
to take a moment to be grateful for its sacrifice?
Would you like to go to pasture with a chicken,cut him up, then
drop him into a fresh manure pile, and eat him? That's what the
product is like coming from chicken plants today.
Yes, sometimes unusual things happen after a switch to a
vegetarian diet. I've seen a number of cases in which the poor
people broke out in violent attacks of good health, followed by
bouts of physical exercise and sweet thoughts.
It is totally unconscionable to subject defenseless animals to
mutilation and death, just so a company can be the first to
market a new shade of nail polish, or a new improved laundry
detergent.
Since visiting the abbatoirs of S. France I have stopped eating
meat.
 (1) Do not let your children make toys out of flies/butterflies
or birds. Such behavior results in injury to living creatures, but
also it arouses in young hearts an impulse to cruelty and
murder. Stories illustrative of the commandments: (2) The wife
of a soldier named Fan was tuberculous and close to death. She
was ordered to eat the brains of 100 sparrows as a remedy.
When she saw the birds in the cage, she sighed and said: "Must
it be that 100 living creatures are to be killed that I may be
healed? I would rather die than permit them to suffer." She
opened the cage and allowed them to fly away. Afterwards she
recovered from her illness. (3) Tsao-Pin lived in a ruined
house. His children begged him to have it repaired. He
answered: "In the cold winter the cracks in the walls and the
space between the tiles and between the stones provide a
shelter and a refuge to all kinds of living creatures. We should
not endanger their lives." (4) Wu-Tang used to take his son
hunting with him. One day they came upon a stag that was
playing with its young one. Tang took an arrow and killed the
young one.is truly free untilstag animal;with a cry of anguish.

Pope John Paul said that 'the future of humanity and planet
earth are in danger because of a lack of respect for animals and
the environment. It is necessary and urgent that following the
example of the poor man [St. Francis] one decides to abandon
inconsiderate forms of domination, capture and custody with
respect to all creatures.'"
You need to hunt something that can shoot back at you to really
classify yourself as a hunter. You need to understand the
feeling of what it's like to go into the field and know your
opposition can take you out. Not just go out there and shoot
Bambi.
Cattle dragged and choked...Knocking ‗em four, five, ten times.
Every now and then when they‘re stunned they come back to
life, and they‘re up there agonizing. They‘re supposed to be
restunned but sometimes they aren‘t and they‘ll go through the
skinning process alive. I‘ve worked in four large
[slaughterhouses] and a bunch of small ones. They‘re all the
same. If people were to see this, they‘d probably feel really bad
about it. But in a packing house everybody gets so used to it
that it doesn‘t mean anything.
How pitiful, and what poverty of mind, to have said that the
animals are machines deprived of understanding and feeling . . .
has Nature arranged all the springs of feeling in this animal to
the end that he might not feel? Has he nerves that he may he
incapable of suffering? People must have renounced, it seems
to me, all natural intelligence to dare to advance that animals
are but animated machines . . . It appears to me, besides, that
[such people] can never have observed with attention the
character of animals, not to have distinguished among them the
different Voices of need, of suffering, of joy, of pain, of love,
of anger, and of all their affections. It would be very strange
that they should express so well what they could not feel. . . .
They are endowed with life as we are, because they have the
same principles of life, the same feelings, the same ideas,
memory, industry—as we.
Judge (in the same way as you would judge your own) the
behaviour of a dog who has lost his master, who has searched
for him in the road barking miserably, who has come back to
the house restless and anxious, who has run upstairs and down,
from room to room, and who has found the beloved master at
last in his study, and then shown his joy by barks, bounds and
caresses. There are some barbarians who will take this dog, that
so greatly excels man in capacity for friendship, who will nail
him to a table, and dissect him alive, in order to show you his
veins and nerves. And what you then discover in him are all the
same organs of sensation that you have in yourself. Answer me,
mechanist, has Nature arranged all the springs of feeling in this
animal to the end that he might not feel? Has he nerves that he
may be incapable of suffering?
The in vitro cell line model was predictive for non-small cell
lung cancer under the disease-oriented approach, for breast and
ovarian cancers under the compound-oriented approach, and
for all four tumor types together. The mouse allograft model
was not predictive. The human xenograft model was not
predictive for breast or colon cancers, but was predictive for
non-small cell lung and ovarian cancers when panels of
xenografts were used.
Human dignity begins to assert itself only at the point where
man is distinguishable from the beast by pity for it.
That even in its sharpest pangs of pain a dog can still caress its
master we have learnt from the studies of vivisectors.
God knows we‘ve cured mice of all sorts of tumours. But that
isn‘t medical research.
I became very critical of zoos and circuses and keeping animals
in captivity. I wish it was against the law.
But if by some miracle and all our struggle, the earth is spared,

Animals of the word exist for their own reasons. They were not
made for humans any more than blacks were made for whites
or women for men.
As we talked of freedom and justice one day for all, we sat
down to steaks. I am eating misery, I thought, as I took the first
bite. And spit it out.
I know, in my soul, that to eat a creature who is raised to be
eaten, and who never has a chance to be a real being, is
unhealthy. It's like...you're just eating misery. You're eating a
bitter life.
Common sense is sometimes called horse sense. For good
reason. Have you ever seen a horse at the $2 window betting on
how fast a person can run???"
There's that word again (harvest)! We persist in using the
euphemism wherever the slaughtering of attractive animals is
being talked about. Dammit, we kill them. We slaughter them,
just like we slaughter cattle. We catch them in steel traps or
blow them down with shotguns. We rip off their hides and
wear their furs or hang their heads on den walls. We KILL
THEM, we don't harvest them!! Someday we'll all grow up and
face that reality.
I admit to having worn suede and leather pants myself for a
while, but you just never feel clean, and it's degenerate,
anyway, to wear animal skins.... So I went back to bluejeans

Veganism denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks
to exclude, as far as possible and practical, all forms of
exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, or
any other purpose; and by extension promotes the development
and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans,
animals, and the environment.
It seems sometimes that almost everything we eat, drink or take
can cause cancer in rats. That does not necessarily relate to
tumours in humans.
40 years ago on the set of Gunsmoke I read the book The Holy
Science . Since then I have not eaten meat.
I became a vegetarian in 1958 and it was very difficult in those
days to really maintain that because there weren't many options.
But, now, it's a growing trend because the economics are there.
See, there's simply enough people demanding it that it's
profitable to supply vegetarians with those products.
There will come a time...when civilized people will look back
in horror on our generation and the ones that preceded it: the
idea that we should eat other living things running around on
four legs, that we should raise them just for the purpose of
killing them! The people of the future will say "meat-eaters!" in
disgust and regard us in the same way we regard cannibals and
cannibalism.
It‘s been well known for maybe two decades that many of these
preclinical human cancer models have very little predictive
power in terms of how actual human beings – actual human
tumours inside patients – will respond…Preclinical models of
human cancer, in large part, stink…Hundreds of millions of
dollars are being wasted every year by drug companies using
these [animal] models…
The FDA still cannot honestly assure the public that milk is

In all the round world of Utopia there is no meat. There used to

And it is impossible to find anyone who will hew a dead ox or

closing of the last slaughterhouse.
(1) Buy captive creatures and set them free.
(2) Hold fast to vegetarianism and abstain from taking life.
(3) Whenever taking a step, always watch for ants and insects.
Prohibit the building of fires outside (lest insects be killed) and
do not set mountain woods or forests ablaze.
(4) Help people in distress as you would help a fish in a dried
up rut. Free people from danger as you would free a sparrow
from a fine net.
(5) Benefit living creatures and human beings. Cultivate
goodness and happiness.
I believe in my heart that faith in Jesus Christ can and will lead
us beyond an exclusive concern for the well-being of other
human beings to the broader concern for the well-being of the
birds in our backyards, the fish in our rivers, and every living
creature on the face of the earth.
Wilbur burst into tears. "I dont want to die," he moaned. "I
want to stay alive, right here in my comfortable manure pile
with all my friends. I want to breathe the beautiful air and lie in
the beautiful sun."
Animals see and hear and love and fear and suffer. They use
their organs far more faithfully than many human beings use
theirs. They manifest sympathy and tenderness toward their
companions in suffering. Many animals show an affection for
those who have charge of them, far superior to the affection
shown by some of the human race. They form attachments for
man which are not broken without great suffering to them."
Animals are becoming more diseased and it will not be long
until animal food will be discarded by many besides Seventh-
day Adventists. Foods that are healthful and life sustaining are
to be prepared, so that men and women will not need to eat
meat.
Animals are often transported long distances and subjected to
great suffering in reaching a market. Taken from the green
pastures and traveling for weary miles over the hot, dusty
roads, or crowded into filthy cars, feverish and exhausted, often
for many hours deprived of food and water, the poor creatures
are driven to their death, that human beings may feast on the
carcasses.
God gave our first parents the food He designed that the race
should eat. It was contrary to His plan to have the life of any
creature taken. There was to be no death in Eden. The fruit of
the trees in the garden was the food man's wants required.
The moral evils of a flesh diet are not less marked than are the
physical ills. Flesh food is injurious to health, and whatever
affects the body has a corresponding effect on the mind and the
soul. Think of the cruelty to animals meat-eating involves, and
its effect on those who inflict and those who behold it. How it
destroys the tenderness with which we should regard those
creatures of God!
As a Bishop of the Church of God, I am ashamed to say that the
Church as an organization has never made any official
pronouncement on the subject of the care and treatment of
animals that I am able to find. I am more and more amazed as I
have studied the matter to find that the Church has almost
completely ignored the animal kingdom... It is time, fully time,
that all Christian people awake to the necessity of taking an
active part in the fight against what I dare to call the Crime of
Animal Cruelty. Everyone who loves God and animals should
help bear the burden of the fight against this insidious evil."
I think I could always live with animals. The more you're
around people, the more you love animals."
I think I could turn and live with animals, They are so placid
and self-contained! I stand and look at them long and long,
They do not sweat and whine about their condition, they do not
lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins, they do not make
me sick discussing their duty to God, Not one is dissatisfied,
not one is demented with the mania of owning things, Not one
kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years
ago, Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth."
The sooner we recognize the fact that the mercy of the
Almighty extends to every creature endowed with life, the
better it will be for us as men and Christians.
Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.
Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
There may be times when we are powerless to prevent
injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to
protest.
Let your continual mercy, O Lord, kindle in your Church the
never-failing gift of love, that, following the example of your
servant William Wilberforce, we may have grace to defend the
poor, and maintain the cause of those who have no helper; for
the sake of him who gave his life for us, your Son, our Savior
Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
I am the voice of the voiceless; Through me the dumb shall

world shall set things right.

Until we can own our centuries old distortion of God's word,
we will probably never really move off the dime in current
distortions of God's word. There is no special merit in declaring
that what we hold now is part of the "faith once delivered to the
saints" or "the church's teaching from the beginning." We have
been consistently right in some things -- consistently wrong in
others. I believe... that our "teaching" has often been racist and
misogynist -- not always through our documents, but with
winks, jokes, the language of our prayers, exclusionary policies
and actions and the toleration of domestic violence and
violence against minorities. This is not rocket science. When
we do not intervene in long patterns of abuse, we tolerate and
support that abuse -- and our silence speaks our doctrine,
doesn't it?
I believe that where the true spirit of government is watchfully
attended to, a tenderness toward all creatures will be
experienced, and a care felt in us that we do not lessen that
sweetness of life in the animal creation which the Great Creator
intends for them under our government.
Vegetarian wrestlers who do not work out lose their muscle
much more slowly than nonvegetarians.
More plant species in the U.S. have been eliminated or
threatened by livestock grazing than by any other cause,
according to the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO).
The church so hated these good people (the Albigenses - a
"heretical" sect of thirteenth century France) whose Christ-like
compassion was such a judgement on its own pagan and anti-
Christian violence, that their vegetarian habits were not only
represented as signs of a diabolical heresy, but were also used
as a means to detect and convict them. For when prisoners were
taken, sheep were led to them and knives were provided for
their butchery. Those who refused to kill the animals were
burnt at the stake, and the majority did refuse since to take
sentient life violated the very basis of their faith.
Until we establish a felt sense of kinship between our own
species and those fellow mortals who share with us the sun and
shadow of life on this agonized planet, there is no hope for
other species, there is no hope for the environment, and there is
no hope for ourselves.
All living things love their life, desire pleasure and do not like
pain; they dislike any injury to themselves; everybody is
desirous of life and to every being, his life is very dear.
In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard
all creatures as we regard our own self, and should therefore
refrain from inflicting upon others such injury as would appear
undesirable to us if inflicted upon ourselves.
Non-injury to all living beings is the only religion. (first truth
of Jainism)
This is the quintessence of wisdom; not to kill anything. All
breathing, existing, living sentient creatures should not be slain,
nor treated with violence, nor abused, nor tormented, nor
driven away. This is the pure unchangeable Law. Therefore,
cease to injure living things.
There can be no justification for causing suffering to animals
simply to serve man's pleasure or simply to enhance man's
lifestyle."
The way animals are carted around reminds me of the slavery
of my people... The slavery of animals has to be ended too."
The fate of animals is of greater importance to me than the fear
of appearing ridiculous; it is indissolubly connected to the fate
of men.
If drugs were tested properly using true scientific methods, the
vast majority of them would not be allowed onto the market
because their harmfulness and ineffectiveness would be all too
apparent. The constant stream of new drugs would slow to a
trickle and within a few years most drug companies would go
bankrupt.
A 14-year old Japanese boy confessed to killing a mentally
retarded 11-year old in Kobe and dumping the
mutilated/severed head in a schoolyard. Police investigated
killings of pigeons and other small animals in the area, which
led them to the killer boy!"
Among many other fine qualities in animals, their
understanding of compassion even surpasses humans'! They do
not want others to suffer. When rhesus monkeys were forced by
experimenters at Northwestern University to choose between
starving and electrically shocking a helpless companion, they
chose to starve!!!"
Animal research was NOT responsible for the development of
coronary bypass surgery. In 1961 in France, Kunlin first used a
portion of a person's own vein to replace obstructed arterial
segments. This gave birth to arterial bypass surgery for
different parts of the body, the heart included. By contrast,
Beck of Ohio and Vineburg of Canada took their theories to the
animal laboratory in search of surgical answer to the
complications of coronary artery disease. Each devised more
than one procedure, envisioning success from their findings in
animals. Not long after, their recommended operations were
performed on thousands of human patients. What were the
results? To say the least, unworthy. To put it bluntly; a
fiasco, a total failure. I am witness to this event and the
least I can do is speak out. Animal experimentation
inevitably leads to human experimentation. That is the
final verdict, sad as it is. And the toll mounts on both
sides."
Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for
entertainment!"
Animals live by ethics! (1) A flock of wild geese had settled to
rest on a pond. One of the flock is captured by a gardener who
had clipped its wings. When the geese started to resume their
flight, this one tried frantically, but vainly, to lift itself into the
air. The others, observing its struggles, flew about in obvious
efforts to encourage it, but no use. The entire flock then settled
back on the pond and waited, even though the urge to go on
was strong, for several days, until the damaged feathers grew
sufficiently to permit the goose to fly. (2) A friend who owned
a small cafe and used to throw crumbs for the sparrows, noticed
that one was injured and had difficulty getting about. But he
was interested to discover that the other sparrows would leave
the crumbs which lay nearest their crippled comrade so that he
could get his share, undisturbed.'
Discovery Channel's 'Justice Files-Serial Killings' documented
that murderers share a background of setting fires and cruelty to
animals before murdering humans: Ted Bundy committed 50
murders and spent his youth torturing animals. Albert Salvo
(The Boston Strangler) murdered 13 women and confessed as a
youth he trapped dogs/cats in orange crates and shot arrows
into the boxes. Jeffrey Dahmer inflicted unspeakable horrors to
animals then went on to murder/mutilate dozens of humans,
even cannibalized and committed necrophilia on some of the
bodies! MORE? Day before Russell Eugene Weston shot &
killed 2 U.S. Capitol officers and wounded a woman, he shot
and killed all of his father's 14 cats, and left the remains of his
father's 2 favorites ones in a bucket for him to find!!!"
Dogs have been extensively used in heart research, but their
coronary arteries differ from those of humans - they have
smaller connections with one another and the left coronary
artery dominates, while in humans the right does so. In
addition, the conduction system has a different pattern of blood
supply, and consequently, researchers have had difficulty in
producing ischemic heart blocks in dogs, which occurs
frequently in humans. The blood coagulation mechanism is
unlike ours, therefore using dogs to test prosthetic devices and
valves is unreliable. A dog's reaction to shock is also very
different to that of humans.
From a comparison of the results of the present study with
those of other studies, one can draw the following conclusions:
compounds that cause hepatomas (liver cancers) in mice, may
not always be carcinogenic in rats, or if carcinogenic in both
species, the compounds may have different primary target
sites. The extrapolation of such results to define any risk to
humans remains a troublesome problem."-
History has shown that in the long run all dictators fail; and
also for the dictatorial empire of the pharmaceutical
speculation, built on the sufferings of animals needlessly
tortured in the laboratories and on the sufferings of human
beings, victims of iatrogenic (medically-induced) diseases, the
day of redde rationem (final reckoning) is bound to come."
If you don't think animal protection is a battle, consider the
weapons we're up against: harpoon; leg-hold trap; cockfighting
spur; puntilla (knife used in the slaughter of livestock in certain
countries); ferao (used in Brazil to poke out the eyes of cattle
before leading them to slaughter); hakapik (used to club baby
seals)... among others!"
Information from one animal species cannot be taken as valid
for any other. It is not a matter of balancing the cruelty of
suffering animals against the gain of humanity spared from
suffering, because that is not the choice. Animals die to enable
hundreds of new drugs to be marketed annually, but the gain is
to industry, not to mankind."-
Is the human species a cancer on the planet?' American
Anthropology Society's Symposium Organizer, Dr. Warren
Hern, physician and epidemiologist, said that aerial and
satellite views of urban centers taken over a period of years
bore a striking similarity to images of cancerous tissue invading
the healthy surrounding tissue. He added that in many parts of
the world the increase in human numbers is rapid and
uncontrolled, that it invades and destroys habitats, and that by
killing off many species it reduces the differentiation of
nature." MORE & MORE to the attention of the public the
Let's bring
truth about the existing link between animal crimes and other
contemporary injustices: spousal abuse/child abuse/elderly
abuse/ other human abuses."
No more compromises. No more lies. Every six seconds an
animal dies!"
Oriental medicines are big business! But manufacturing them
tramples animals, some of which are endangered. For example,
tigers, the rhinoceros, pangolin (a protected anteater species)
and sea horses all die to make medicines such as Armadillo
Counter Poison Pill, Laryngitis Pills or Sea Horse Genital
Tonic Pills."
The new system which is being employed at the Development
Therapeutics Programme in Frederick, Maryland, uses an
arsenal of automated devices and computers to test potential
cancer-fighting drugs on real human cancer cells grown in
laboratories rather than on mice. This enables scientists to
test more than 300 chemicals a week. Many of these drugs
had failed in the past when tested on mice. "
There's a Jewish Law to prevent 'tsaar ba-alei chaim' (the
suffering of living creatures) and to value their lives as
intrinsically worthy. Causing suffering to any living creature
constitutes a violation of this Law which states: 'It is forbidden,
according to the Law of the Holy Torah, to inflict pain upon
any living creatures. On the contrary, it is our duty to relieve
the pain of any creatures...'"
Within ten years, the Italian Ministry of Health has withdrawn
from the market 22,621 drugs because of toxic side-effects."
CONCLUSION ON DRUG TESTING The inescapable
conclusion is that drug companies choose animal tests over
scientific methods because of the utter unreliability of animal
tests. Because each animal species is unique in its
physiological, biochemical, histological, morphological and
other characteristics, and consequently reacts differently to
substances, drug companies can produce results favourable to
their interests by simply choosing the appropriate species.
If their product is harmless, fine, money rolls in. If it's
harmful, no problem, accusations are disposed of on the
grounds that it was tested and found to be "safe" on
animals.
In Tamoxifen‘s case, a drug first developed as a potential
contraceptive languished for many years before its present
application was found. Furthermore, its propensity to cause
liver tumours in rats, a toxicity problem that thankfully does
not carry over into humans, was not detected until after the
drug had been on the market for many years. If it had been
found in preclinical testing, the drug would almost certainly
have been withdrawn from the pipeline.
In the course of tumour progression, it has been known for
many years that mice and men are totally different.
Warning is given not to carry over, without reservation, to man,
the conclusions based on animal experiments. In monkeys none
of the powerful carcinogens [of man] has been shown to
produce cancers.
When so much mistreatment of animals continues, when the
cries of thirsty beasts from our railway cars die out unheard,
when so much brutality prevails in our slaughterhouses, when
animals meet a painful death in our kitchens, when animals
suffer incredibly from merciless men and are turned over to the
cruel play of children, WE ALL BEAR THE GUILT FOR IT.
We are afraid of shocking people if we let it be noticed how
much we are moved by the suffering man brings to animals.
We think that others may have become more 'rational' than we,
and may accept as customary and as a matter of course the
things we have gotten excited about. Once in a while, however,
a word suddenly slips out which shows that even they have not
yet become reconciled to this suffering. Now they come very
close to us though they were formerly strangers. The masks
with which we were deceiving each other fall off. Now we
learn from each other that no one is able to escape the grip of
the cruelty that flourishes ceaselessly around us."

Yes, I think it is very clear to all of us who are engaged in the
business of assessing toxicity data that, when volumes of data
are proudly presented to us after a carcinogenicity study,
showing that there was a tumour in this organ or that, we look
at it and we scratch our heads, and we wonder what on earth we
can make of it. This is especially true when huge doses are
given, with nothing to suggest what would be expected at low
doses. I think very often the carcinogenicity studies are a waste
of everybody's time and a fearful waste of animals. They are
conducted partly because we are not sure what to do instead,
and partly because they are a political gesture and a very
miserable one at that.
