A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on animals, mercy, and fairness

Humans - who enslave, castrate, experiment on, and fillet other animals - have an understandable penchant for pretending animals do not feel pain..  A sharp distinction between humans and "animals" is essential is we are to bend them to our will, wear them, eat them - without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret.

Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)
