Definition of SPECIESISM
: prejudice or discrimination based on species; especially: discrimination against animals
: the assumption of human superiority on which speciesism is based

The UK government have recently awarded millions of pounds of tax payers money to vivisection (the 'right' to experiment on live animals for cosmetics and science) aswell as passing a law allowing lost and stray family pets to be taken and used for experiments. The attitude towards animals needs to change, speciesism is no less important then racism, sexism or ageism, all of which are illegal. We want to see change and make speiciesism illegal to and change the way animals are regarded by humans.

      Make speiciesism illegal. Scientific experiments are rarely if ever effective in improving things for humans, and they surely don't improve anything for the poor animals that suffer the heinous sadism that 'disinterested' science inflicts upon them with the fiendish torture of 'vivisection'. Animals are sentient beings the same as humans, and feel pain every bit as much as we do. Human beings are are not evolving, they are becoming more and more monstrous. They are destroying this beautiful planet and have no regard for life in all its precious forms. Science has much to answer for, and so does the law.

      Association for Animal Welfare you are asleep on the job. Stop the inexcusable torture of animals. Any animal torture, abuse, killing is a good sign of people with no morals, kindness, compassion, or anything good. It breeds people that have no conscience and can easily be evil. Do what you are suppose to do by protecting the innocent animals that can't speak for themselves. The UK has really went in a horrible way. We see so much horror from the UK. Aren't you civilized at all?

      Animals are people, too. Would any of you do this to your kid, your neighbor's kids?
