An Animal Rights Poem from

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.

Personal Choice
By Jenny Moxham

It's claimed eating meat
Is a 'personal choice'
But what about those that we eat?
I'm sure that they too
Have a 'personal choice'
Not to cruelly be turned into meat.

Why is it we think
That the choice is all ours,
When others have so much to lose,
For something as fleeting
And fickle as taste,
Why should it be humans who choose?
