A Quote to Consider and Ten Questions
An Animal Rights Article from All-Creatures.org


September 2011

If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth - beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you feel yourself to be to other animals - would you concede them the rights over you that you assume over other animals?
- George Bernard Shaw

Would you:

  1. perform research upon humans and breed them for surgery?
  2. farm humans & smoke and age their butts as food for the hungry?
  3. raise humans and tan their skin for leather for shoes & purses?
  4. confine humans as pets, and train them to roll over & play dead?
    train humans to perform demeaning tricks, and charge admission?
  5. confine pregnant human females to collect their urine and
    manufacture premarin?
  6. confine pregnant human females and milk their breasts to
    feed calves?
  7. make meat balls out of...oh, forget that one...
  8. castrate baby male humans to make them more docile?
  9. force-feed humans so that their livers grow large and fatty
  10. and them kill them to make fancy pate for gourmet restaurants?
