In english class I have one night to write a short 2minute speech about something I am passionae about, but it has to be about something like gay rights, drunk driving, or in my case, animal rights. I am thinking about doing factory farming, but urging a whole class to go vegitarian? o.O could go very, very wrong. Maybe at the end I could say something about if you really have an imaginary medical desease and can not live with out meat, buy from your local free range farm where you know the animals are treated better then at factory farms until slaughter. Or is this to touchy of a subject??? I want it to be about animals, but I would like it to really stand out. I want to be the last one to go so my speech is stuck in their minds all day. I was thinking about starting it off with how animals such as cows and pigs are just as brilliant if not more then your beloved pet, an they should always be treated right. So if you could just give me a few points i should include in my speech, that would be great 😀
Touch on all five subjects. Don’t tell them “go veg” or “stop buying things tested on animals”; tell them the truth and then let them think about it. Tell them how smart the victims of cruelty are, tell them what happens to them, then tell them that if they want to do something, they should first stop supporting it, urge others to do the same, and then should protest, petition, etc.
Never encourage people to believe in the lie that is “free range, humane” animal products. Try to make a level-headed statement and talk about the facts as they are, but you should have no need to compromise.
As Rachel noted, the homework link is always there to help; and you can look up studies on animal intelligence easily on the web.
