It is wrong on every level to take away the liberty and life of an innocent and defenseless being.
don't participate in using animal products (including meat), since it
leads to the death and suffering of precious, sentient, feeling and
conscious animals !!! They love life, they love their family.
They feel suffering, fear. Please don't inflict them pain, which is
done by the slaughter-industry -- and you partake of the carcasses.
King Lear, late at night on the cliffs asks the blind Earl of Gloucester “How do you see the world?”
And the blind man Gloucester replies “I see it feelingly”.
Shouldn’t we all?
Animals must be off the menu because tonight they are screaming in
terror in the slaughterhouse, in crates, and cages. Vile ignoble gulags
I heard the screams of my dying father as his body was ravaged by the
cancer that killed him. And I realised I had heard these screams before.
In the slaughterhouse, eyes stabbed out and tendons slashed, on the
cattle ships to the Middle East and the dying mother whale as a Japanese
harpoon explodes in her brain as she calls out to her calf.
Their cries were the cries of my father.
I discovered when we suffer, we suffer as equals.
And in their capacity to suffer, a dog is a pig is a bear. . . . . . is a boy."
