Human Life v. Animal Life

Posted August 26, 2008 by Rachelle Owen

When it comes to the suffering of humans and non-human animals, we all deserve to live out our lives in peace. It’s all connected, so when any individual or group is oppressed, we all are. Animals in slaughterhouses, laboratories, and elsewhere around the world need your voice to defend their lives. Will you take action?

PETA’s President, Ingrid Newkirk, explains this all a bit more in this video, so take a look.

    To the poor, well-meaning people that lack $’s:
    Start easy first. One step at a time. What I did when my mom put up this argument, was become a vegetarian first. I ate eggs. Lots of it. I ate so much tofu I swear it’s still running in my veins, while soy milk is dominating my arteries.
    I looked up vegetarian sites, noted what had the most protein, and how to balance my diet. I took the occasional prawn, just to be ‘polite’, and then slipped it to my cat.
    Now I’m cruelty-free, guilt-free, and ready to tackle the world.

    to chloe butchers-
    its called supply and demand.
    meats so cheap because so many people want it.
    have u even noticed how free range eggs are more expensive.
    people on a lower income sometimes have little choice but to provide what they can for their families, but if everyone went vegetarian or vegan, nobody would buy meat, causing it to become more expensive to supply and in turn the vegan lifestyle would become the cheapest lifestyle to choose.

    What would you say to a poor person that says it’s too expensive to go vegan?

    some good points are made, i just wish more people would see it this way. Im always being asked do i really think animals’ lives are equal to humans’ and of course i do, poeple have to realise that they aren’t loosing out on anything by admitting this. it doesn’t make humans any less spectaculer to say they are equal to us. If we got a good mark in an exam, and someone else got the same, it doesn’t make our acheivment any less.

    I will take action at once. All lives matter and we are all the same. Animals and use all breath, all bleed, all need food to servive but that don’t mean we can mis-treat the animals just because they can’t talk our language and can’t slap us when we’re bad. We don’t have to be mean to the animals, I will tell this all to my horrible cousin who fights chickens for a living.

    I will take action. Every creature has the right to life. Animals are no less than us humans.

    Ingrid said it right. :)
    Animals are just as important as humans. Hopefully in a few decades, people will look back at what we did with animals and be so shocked, just the way most people look back at slavery and women’s rights and are surprised at the stupidity of thinking women and blacks aren’t worthy of equality. Of course they are. And so are animals.
