But since only Some animal rights activists are demanding vegetarianism, even veganism now, or nothing.

Is not a life lived off the factory farm and a death humanely inflicted superior to the terrible lives we know they lead and the horrible deaths we know they suffer in Bladen County today? — Steven M. Wise

Humanely Sayings By Gary L. Francione: We can no more justify using nonhumans as human resources than we can justify human We can no more justify using nonhumans as human resources than we can justify human slavery.

Humanely Sayings By Winston S. Churchill: No Socialist system can be established without a political police. Many of those who are No Socialist system can be established without a political police. Many of those who are advocating Socialism or voting Socialist today will be horrified at this idea.

No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance. And this would nip opinion in the bud; it would stop criticism as it reared its head, and it would gather all the power to the supreme party and the party leaders, rising like stately pinnacles above their vast bureaucracies of Civil servants, no longer servants and no longer civil. — Winston S. Churchill

Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself? — Henry David Thoreau
Humanely Sayings By George Lakoff: Moral growth is a central idea in religion and law. The idea of repentance presupposes Moral growth is a central idea in religion and law. The idea of repentance presupposes the possibility for moral growth. In law, "showing remorse" is a demonstration of moral growth and grounds for a reduced prison sentence. The idea of moral growth has long been associated more with liberal than with conservative politics. This comes out clearly in the politics of prisons. The concept of rehabilitation is based on the concept of moral growth. The idea is that if prisoners are treated humanely, taught useful skills, encouraged to get an education, allowed to earn furloughs, and provided with a job upon release, they will have a chance to grow morally and become useful citizens. Not that this is guaranteed, by any means. But if prisoners do grow morally, there is no reason to keep them in prison. T — George Lakoff

Becker

Humanely Sayings By Sharon Gannon: Some people may argue that if the animals are treated humanely prior to being slaughtered, Some people may argue that if the animals are treated humanely prior to being slaughtered, this justifies their confinement and slaughter.

Humanely Sayings By Anonymous: Americans generally agree that they should not change their way of life, or cede their Americans generally agree that they should not change their way of life, or cede their tolerance of satirical movies or inflammatory cartoons, in order to conciliate their enemies.

The country does not pay ransom to terrorists; perhaps it should also not surrender its values to them. — Anonymous
