Animal tests are CRUEL

Image via Wikipedia

I know what it feels like to be hurt,and I don’t want to cause that pain to any other person or creature. But somehow, in society, we numb ourselves in order to make money or to feel better about ourselves, such as with cosmetics or food. We say to ourselves, I’m going to use this animal. I’m going to say it doesn’t have much worth so that I can allow myself to do these cruel things. And that just isn’t fair.

We always had dogs,so I understood all the joy and the love animals are capable of giving. It’s crazy to me that some people have dogs in thier homes, but they treat them more like furniture.

Not that I say,”Oh,I’m not going to associate with certain people.,” but I have my world,and I only want to be around people who I feel stimulated by. I have to be honest I do have a new quest: I want to meet more vegetarians,people who are more like minded. There’s something real neat about that feeling. It makes you feel so settled to know there’s somebody else sitting right there,being so passionate about what i’m passionate about. I don’t want to be around selfish people. I try to keep myself surrounded by deep people who will move me.

Nothing’s changed my life more. I feel better about myself as a person, being conscious and responsible for my actions and I lost weight and my skin cleared up and I got bright eyes and I just became stronger and healthier and happier. Can’t think of anything better in the world to be but be vegan.

Animals are being exploited in such an unbelievable way; it’s not acceptable. PETA is trying to get your attention, and they’re successful at it. … If you talk to people who grew up on a farm, they’ll tell you that they had an experience where they were taking care of a cow, and one day their parents took it away and killed it. It’s a torturous experience for them, and that’s when they became hard. People are taught to be grown-up or whatever, and that’s dumb. That bond they had with that cow or chicken was real.

Once people spend time with farm animals in a loving way … a pig or cow or a little chicken or a turkey, they might find they relate with them the same way they relate with dogs and cats. People don’t really think of them that way because they’re on the plate. Why should they be food when other animals are pets? I would never eat my doggies.

I did it for political, moral reasons, thinking that I was making this great sacrifice, but it was absolutely necessary; I was not going to contribute to the violence in the world anymore.
