As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together. --Isaac Bashevis Singer
It is widely agreed approximately 6-11 million humans died during the holocaust of the Nazis during WWII.
Another genocide in Darfur killed an estimated 400,000.
Ethnic cleansing in what was Yugoslavia estimated at 200,000 human lives lost.
What would happen if 6-8 million PEOPLE were euthanized each year for their own good or the good of the community (because no one wanted to take care of them).
Horrible! Reprehensible! I believe all would agree there is a fundamental RIGHT for humans to LIFE. So when we learn of such abominable actions as those of the Nazis we recognize them for what they are: CRIMES. These are slaughters we would and did fight to stop. But what of the animals?
Holocaust is defined as a thorough destruction involving extensive loss of life especially through fire.
There is a holocaust in progress among the dogs and cats of this world. Every 8 seconds an animal is euthanized in a Shelter in the United States….One LIFE is ended. It is estimated that 6-8 million are killed in the United States alone EACH YEAR. I was horrified to find out that not only are these animals killed but many shelters still use a “gas chamber” for the process. In 1996 the United States Courts overturned the use of gas chambers to execute convicted murderers (i.e., death penalty) recognizing it was too cruel in that the suffering before death was inhumane. COME ON PEOPLE! We won’t allow murderers to die a cruel death but we readily accept that it’s okay for innocent animals? IT MUST END.
Please support “no-kill shelters” and the spay/neuter programs in your area. PLEASE act to end use of gas chambers for euthanasia But more importantly let us not meekly accept this ongoing slaughter of the innocents. Support animal rights…the first and pre-eminent of these being right to LIFE.
