Compassion needs to be shared with all living, feeling creatures.

Our treatment of animals raised in cruel conditions and then slaughtered without respect for the lives being taken, needs changing. This clip shows the final moments in the life of a gentle (six month old baby) pig. These creatures have the same feelings and emotions as our pet cats, horses, and dogs; it is just that we have categorized them as food rather than companion. Should we not afford them greater compassion, give them better treatment during their short lives and at their transition to death; in appreciation and respect for their lives they have given up so that we may eat their body?
"A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives." - Albert Schweitzer
