Change.org server not responding, but I'll go back. And, if you REALLY want to get rid of these factory farms, go vegetarian.

I'm afraid it's going to take something like humans experiencing this kind of cruelty at the hand of a more powerful species for us to collectively wake up and realize that we are neither superior nor rational.

As a Christian let me just say...."For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is VANITY. "

Hard to be believe human behavior should be so ugly and so brutal. I'm hoping for the time when people capable of such egregious cruelty will get the punishment they deserve--in this life or the next.

All animal products are cruel. Chickens are boiled alive, cows have their throats slit and slowly bleed out, being cut apart while still dying. Milk cows who give birth are separated from their calves, and after they reach their "productive capacity", slaughtered for second grade leather and dog food. Chickens are crammed in warehouses, and still are labeled cage-free.

Claudia, so YOU claim.

What "god"? Which one?

Humans made up religions to justify what they do, just as those who claim that "raising an animal humanely" constitutes "good treatment." Taking the life of another creature when it 1) doesn't want to die and 2) you aren't supposed to even be eating animals, biologically speaking, will never meet the definition of "humane treatment." Please - advocate for animals but leave YOUR religion out of the public discussions.

I signed and commented on the petition Cher, thank you. There isn't, and never will be, any justification or excuse for not treating animals with anything except compassion. Just had to say that, although I am aware that you agree.
