we are in the position, and therefore OBLIGATED, to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
educate the masses about animal exploitation
becoming vegan or a vegetarian are the best things you can do to help eliminate animal suffering.
If you want to test on somebody, test on me. - Montel Williams
"...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." -Dr. Vernon Coleman, Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, UK
With all the technology we have—we can reach the whole planet at the same time—but we can’t figure out how to cure a disease by poking people rather than poking animals? I don’t get it.
In one BHF test, dogs’ chests were cut open and their blood was circulated out of their bodies and back again in order to allow blood pressure to suddenly change in the neck arteries. The experimenters then concluded that a person bending down and suddenly standing up could experience dizziness
In another test, dogs’ blood vessels were cut, the dogs were implanted with electrodes and they were injected with other dogs’ blood. This was done in an attempt to find out about blood storage in the liver, even though the experimenters acknowledged that it is already known that dogs store their blood differently than humans do.
"The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men." Leonardo da Vinci, artist and scientist
"Our task must be to free ourselves . . . by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty." "Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." Albert Einstein, physicist, Nobel Prize 1921
"I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being." Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. President
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." "To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being." Mahatma Gandhi, statesman and philosopher
"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." Mark Twain, author
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." Thomas Edison, inventor
I used to wear real fur, but, like many others, I had a change of heart when I learned what actually happens to the animals. -Martha Stewart
Every year close to 350, 000 seals are killed in a span of a month just for their skin/fur. Since these hunters are not paid by hour and are paid by seal. THEIR MISSION IS TO SKIN AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE TO MOVE ONTO THE NEXT SEAL.
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans anymore than black people were made for white or women created for men." ~ Alice Walker
"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 capitalists for the same reasons." ~ C. S. Lewis
"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." ~ Sir Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991)
"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." ~ Thomas Alva Edison
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. ~James Anthony Froude, Oceana, 1886
no animals deserve to die for your tastebuds
Every minute of every working day, thousands of animals are killed in slaughter-houses. Pain and misery are common. In the US alone, 500,000 animals are killed for meat every hour.
There are millions of cases of food poisoning recorded every year. The vast majority are caused by eating meat.
Meat contains absolutely nothing - no proteins, vitamins or minerals - that the human body cannot obtain perfectly happily from a vegetarian diet.
'Meat' can include the tail, head, feet, rectum and spinal cord of an animal.
A sausage can contain ground up intestines. How can anyone be sure that the intestines are empty when they are ground up? Do you really want to eat the content of a pig's intestines?
Every day, tens of millions of one-day-old male chicks are killed because they will not be able to lay eggs. There are no rules about how this mass slaughter takes place. Some are crushed or suffocated to death. Many are used for fertiliser or fed to other animals.
Animals who die for your dinner table die alone, in terror, in sadness and in pain. The killing is merciless and inhumane.
In a lifetime, the average meat eater will consumer 36 pigs, 36 sheep and 750 chickens and turkeys. Do you want that much carnage on your conscience?
Animals which are a year old are often far more rational - and capable of logical thought - than six week old babies. Pigs and sheep are far more intelligent than small children. Eating dead animals is barbaric.
Vegetarians are fitter than meat eaters. many of the world's most successful athletes are vegetarian.
Vegetarians live longer, healthier lives. That's a fact. Modern medicine can prolong life and medical science is keeping people alive who would die without transplants, bypasses etc; but what of the quality of life? It's simpler not to eat meat.
The more plant foods you eat the less room you have for meat food, which clogs the arteries with cholesterol and strain the kidneys with excess protein and burden the heart with saturated fat.
Farm animals receive 30 times the antibiotics than people do. This is not so much to prevent infection - although the cramped factory farm conditions do lead to much sickness but to promote more growth an less feed. We ingest these and the hormones through the flesh we consume.
Vegetarians have lower incidence of diabetes, kidney disease and gallstones.
Over 12% of children in Singapore are rated as obese. Many more are overweight. Fast food outlets are blamed by many for this rise because of the high fat content of the meals. Vegetarian fed children are seldom overweight and parents report they are less prone to sickness. They may grow slower but end up the almost the same height and healthier.
Baby chicks are sorted male from female at chicken farms. The male chicks are casually thrown in a sack on top of each other and suffocated because they cannot become layers or meat providers.
You'll be in good company - Pythagoras, Socrates, Leonardo de Vinci, Albert Einstein, George Bernard Shaw, Madonna, Lamina Novratilova, Tina Turner, Vanessa Williams and Paul McCartney to name a few, were or are vegetarians.
24.4% of Singaporeans die of cancer. It has shown that vegetarians worldwide have a lower incidence of cancer especially cancer of the colon.
Meat is wasteful. It takes 3.25 acres to apply one meat eater for one year. It only requires one sixth of an acre to feed a full vegetarian for a year.
Imagine the agony of having your arms tied tightly for days while your eyes being poked and you have nothing to eat or drink. This is what we subject crabs and lobsters to before we 'kindly' kill them.
Pigs are equal in intelligence to chimps and higher than dogs. No wonder they scream and fight when dragged into the slaughterhouse
It is said that vegetarians are calmer and more spiritual than meat eaters. Try it out and see for yourself.
We will have to all become vegetarians sooner or later. Exhausted soils and scarcity of water will force the world to adopt a vegetarian diet. Get used to it now.
It happens, more often than we want to believe, that cattles are skinned alive, pigs immersed in scalding water, chicks are stuffed into plastic bags where they are crushed and suffocated.
A milk cow must give birth every year to keep producing milk. When it gives birth, the baby is taken away from its mother, so the calf will not drink the milk. Cows are milked 10 times the amount the baby would drink. The cows end up with diseased.
Animal farming is an industry where there is no place for feelings, the production lines must move quickly.
Anyone who says that life matters less to animals than it does to us has not held in his hands an animal fighting for its life.
