Stop supporting the abuse of animals

RE: Learn about animals; learn about ourselves (SDN Sept. 7)It was wonderful to read the letter from Barb Adams that pointed out the continuing horror of animal abuse in this country, which we sanction by allowing and supporting factory farming, inhumane laboratory “experiments” and the destruction of wildlife habitat for commercial purposes.The hypocrisy of the people of this nation, who claim to have compassion for the suffering of others, and especially for the suffering of the weak and the innocent, is stunning in the presence of the systemized exploitation and abuse of 10 billion sentient individuals every year in this country alone; a system that is supported by our purchases of animal “products.” We should all be cognizant of the fact that every day is Hurricane Katrina for animals on factory farms, or in laboratories. To hear human survivors say they were “treated like animals” should perhaps give them, and us, pause for reflection.I urge each of you to please do what you can to bring awareness to the injustice of the commercialization of animal life in our society today, and to stop supporting it.
