Humans have no more of a right to be on this planet than other animals. Years of tradition and a social belief of human supremacy has led us to believe that humans have a right to kill other beings. We share this planet with many other animals. Animals who have voices, fears, and desires. The time has come to realize that we ALL belong to this earth. We take the lives of animals as if we're God - who made us God or some supreme ruler that can value an animal's life as less than our own?
"One day the absurdity of the almost universal belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable - we shall then have discovered our souls and become worthier of sharing this planet with them." MLK, Jr.
