Ingrid Newkirk: Rat, pig, boy, dog

“When it comes to having a central nervous system, and the ability to feel pain, hunger, and thirst, a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.”
—Ingrid Newkirk.

Ingrid Newkirk: Was that all wrong?

“Not until black demonstrators resorted to violence did the national government work seriously for civil rights legislation … In 1850 white abolitionists, having given up on peaceful means, began to encourage and engage in actions that disrupted plantation operations and liberated slaves. Was that all wrong?”

-Ingrid Newkirk.
