    I am often asked why I have such empathy concerning abused animals and not children. This is an untrue statement. I care about both. I am vocal about my concern for animal abuse because I believe if children are given a healthy rational mental, physical and spiritual upbringing they will have the ability to grow up and make right choices. Our creatures of this earth never have that ability. They are, from birth, put into a position of trusting human decision about their welfare. They have no choices. Animals, fish, birds cannot speak for themselves. Every choice for their future will be, and is, made by man and therefore it is up to responsible people to speak and act on their behalf. Humans threaten animal environments through industrial pollution, deforestation or residential development due to increasing population. They choose animal consumption for diet, fur for clothing, animal testing for cosmetics, and zoos and circuses for their entertainment, many without concern for animal suffering during production, slaughter, experimentation and exploitation.
    People and creatures are not equal, but life is, and non-human beings should be treated humanely. They are sentient beings who experience pain and suffering. No rational healthy human would do anything to an animal that causes it pain, suffering or premature death. Every human is capable of kindness. It is a choice. We have a moral obligation to protect all living things from human exploitation and abuse.
