Human Privilege vs Moral Obligation
It is our human privilege to not be locked up from the moment we are born until the moment we die. And it is our human privilege to even dream about having any control over our life and our bodies. It is our human privilege to raise our young how we see fit. And we cherish these rights. We have fought and struggled to preserve these rights. We continue to do all in our power to continue this preservation.
Yet, we deny these rights to animals everywhere. It is our human privilege to stand by while this happens. But, it is our moral obligation to stop standing by. It is time for action! Every truck headed to a slaughterhouse is carrying my brothers and sisters. We may not be the same species, but in every way that matters we are the same. We desire life, liberty and pursue our own version of happiness.
