Quotation: Herbert Owen (1942)

"As to the example and teaching of Jesus we do at least know that He taught justice and the merciful treatment of others. How can we deny that the suffering and fear which we see in the eyes of an animal spring from the same causes as in human beings, or that it is a moral duty to avoid inflicting such pain and terror so far as in us lies?"

From a letter published in The Vegetarian Messenger and Health Review (July 1942)
