Letter From Jenny Moxham - Save all lives

Letter as published on Australia's Fraser Coast Chronicle
April 3, 2020

ALL around the globe people are desperately trying to save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. But, sadly, not all lives. Driving along the highway on Tuesday I was passed by half a dozen trucks packed with sheep and cattle, bound for the slaughterhouse.

These gentle and inoffensive animals value their lives every bit as much as we do and they fear death, every bit as much as we do.

Their terror would have been palpable as they were forced towards the killing floor.

Instead of clamouring for their corpses to fill our freezers, isnít it time to show some compassion for these unfortunate animals by purchasing healthful and humanely derived plant-based foods only?

Jenny Mowham, Monbulk
