Let’s Put A Halt To Animal Suffering
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
There is a lot of animal suffering in the world. Most of us have seen footage of slaughterhouses and the horrendous torture that animals endure.
Many animals are combined to a short life stuffed in small cages.
Movies like What The Health, Fed Up and many more have inspired a global movement to look differently at the way we treat cows, pigs, chickens and all of animal life.
Many have turned toward veganism, a lifestyle probably best described as the absence of animal suffering and all elements related to that (ie avoiding animal products and leather).
Its probably a true statement that there is a growing awareness, understanding and respect among many people toward all of animal life (and not just toward our pets). We cannot imagine eating our dog, so how can we say we love animals and still consume dead animals?
Compassion is what the world needs in abundance, and compassion towards animals is not an exception. Each of us has a powerful choice that can be made instantly. You can decide to stop eating animals – for your health, for the world, but certainly also for the animals.
It is estimated that the average meat eater consumes 200-500 animals per year! It is a very powerful thing to know that when you choose not to eat animals, you will save hundreds of animal lives each year.
YOU CAN MAKE THE CHOICE TO PUT A HALT TO ANIMAL SUFFERING!
We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.

Mankind’s true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.
— Milan Kundera
A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite.
— Leo Tolstoy
The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.
— Leonardo da Vinci
