Quotes

"I will never not be a vegan," said Ellie Gordon, 28, a vegetarian at age 11 and a vegan for seven years. "There have been so many scientific studies and research connecting longevity and alleviation of a whole plethora of health problems with a plant-based diet. There is a whole lot of research to support it, even if people don’t care about it."
According to the HSUS, some states have banned greased pig contests, yet they proliferate in some Midwestern states. "These contests encourage an insensitivity to and acceptance of mistreatment of animals in the name of entertainment" explained a spokesperson
"We have not been able to confirm the existence of an exotic species of snake in Lake Hopatcong," Ragonese said. "We are taking this seriously, but doing the only things we can, setting up traps and patrolling the area."
