Quotations from Influential People

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated"
Gandhi, the Moral Basis of Vegetarianism

"The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? But rather, Can they suffer?"
Jeremy Bentham, 19th century Philosopher, Oxford University

"Until he extends the circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace."
Albert Schweitzer

"I have, from an early age, renounced eating meat: The time will come when we will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of humans."
Leonardo da Vinci

"I saw a hatchery worker dumping fully concious chicks in a auger, grinding them up ALIVE for fertilizer. I have also spoken with livestock dealers who have transported animals from Montana to eastern Pennsylvania without stopping to give them food or water...."
--Gene Bauston, M.S., Agricultural Economics, Cornell U, 1997

and for those who say the bible says that God put animals on the earth to be eaten, read what else the bible says~

"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...."
--Genesis 1:29

"God put animals here for us to use; the Bible gives us dominion over animals."

"Dominion is not the same as tyranny. The Queen of England has dominion over her subjects, but that doesn't mean she can eat them, or wear them, or experiment on them. If we have dominion over animals, surely it is to protect them, not to use them for our own ends. There is nothing in the Bible that would justify our modern-day practices that desecrate the environment, destroy entire species of wildlife, and inflict torment and death on billions of animals every year. The Bible imparts a reverence for life; a loving God could not help but be appalled at the way many animals are treated."
-quoted from someone from Peta

Cows that are injured or become sick during transport to the stockyards or slaughterhouse often become unable to stand. They are referred to as "downers." They are often pushed around with bulldozers into piles and are left to die a horrific death.Click here to see more.
