All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize.
This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.
By Mary T. Hoffman
“Humane” farming? What a scam!
Slaughtered pigs turned into ham,
Calves becoming “humane” veal –
Doublespeak is here for real!
“Humane” farming? Give me a break!
Cruelty your name is “steak.”
They committed no offense;
For killing them there’s no defense.
“Humane” farming? What a lie!
Causing animals to die
For human gluttony and greed,
When there’s no need for them to breed.
Doublespeak’s become the rule;
Consumer’s taken for a fool.
Evilness is called “humane” –
Now indeed does Satan reign!
Eggs are stolen from a mother,
Death imposed on any other
Animal that they can sell.
Shame on all who spawn this hell.
