Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Martin Luther King Jr. and Animal Rights

The fate of animals today is similar to that of humans who were subjected to slavery and other civil rights injustices—they, too, are tortured, abused, and neglected as humans once were and sometimes still are. More than 63 billion animals are slaughtered every year in the United States for the food industry, without even a thought to their feelings or needs. They languish in small stalls and cages, deprived of everything that is natural and important to them, until the day that they are sent to slaughter. Animals suffer similarly for the sake of entertainment, fashion, and experimentation.

Never be silent.  Share some of these quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. with your friends and family in order to lend your voice to suffering animals today:
