Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted as saying, “Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”

What is the matter with our species? Is there nothing we will not do for the almighty dollar? How can anyone look at a lamb then torture, kill and eat any part of it still be considered part of the human race? Lambs are also housed in inhumane conditions. Lambs and babies of every species deserve the same care we give the children and infants we love. Those who do this to lambs should watch the horrified look on their 2-10 yr old child's face as they are forced to tell them what their parent does for a living. Then watch their children's faces as they try to explain a justifiable reason to do such an inhumane thing. What good is the human race if we have no compassion or are bent on treating every other species inhumanely?
