Factory farming is cruel


Who are you to decide which animal's life's hold more value than others? What difference is there between a cow and a domestic cat?

Have you witnessed the place they are raised and live in, and accepted the false advertisement for 'farmed fre...

Research into space travel should be halted immediately and funds diverted away from N.A.S.A. Forthw...

I noticed that you support lab rats being experimented on. I'm hear to oppose that. First of all, it's cruel to experiment on any creature, and certainly not right. Mice and rats can be killed and hurt in the process of experimentation. Also, mice and rats are different from humans and have different allergies and resistances. Therefore it's not only cruel to experiment on them, but pointless....
