Quotation: Richard G. Watson (1956)

"A correspondent, Richard G. Watson, writing on "Slaughter Methods," in The Christian Science Monitor, of 5/7/56, maintains that the words "humane" and "slaughter" cannot be linked together. The word "humane," he states, according to its dictionary significance, means kind, benevolent, disposed to promote the prosperity and happiness of others and, he says, "in the slaughtering of animals not a single act is humane."

From an abridged article in the Vegetarian News headed 'Humane Slaughter - Is there such a thing?' (Winter 1956 edition)
