'Animal Suffering' by Rev. Francis Wood

"... we vegetarians must never forget that our special protest is not merely against cruelty to animals. We are very much more than a department of the R.S.P.C.A. We are out, I take it, to protest especially and vehemently against that wholesale and wanton destruction of the wonderful and beautiful creature life of the world of which mankind - especially in this Western part of the globe - are constantly and customarily guilty. We believe in the sanctity not alone of human but of all life. We assert that all life has but one great and sacred source. And we hold it a most immoral and impius thing that man - himself an essentially dependent and finite creature, receiving his own life by absolute will of a Higher Power - should rob his humbler fellows of their God given existence in order to satisfy his own selfish appetites and impulses."
