Supporting quotations

Mahatma Gandhi - "To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. The more helpless the creature, the more that it is entitled to protection by man from the cruelty of man."[1]

Randy Fairchild. "The Case Against Animal Testing". Helium - "The real difference - the difference that makes a difference - in the instance of animals is that they cannot vote and protect themselves with laws and constitutional rights. Thus, there are no such laws prohibiting experimentation upon them. Modern ethics holds that we should strive to protect the disadvantaged, especially when they are different, in an effort to battle natural temptations toward exploitation. Thus, we would enrich the world, respecting diversity."

Paul Harvey, a famous American radio broadcaster for the ABC Radio Network - "Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned with animals suffering? Because government is not. Why not? Animals don't vote."[2]

Ella Wheeler Wilcox, 1850 - 1919, a famous American author and poet. - "Iam the voice of the voiceless; Through me the dumb shall speak, Till the deaf world's ears be made to hear The wrongs of the wordless weak. ....................... And I am my brothers keeper, And I will fight his fights; And speak the words for beast and bird Till the world shall set things right."
