RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I was a little disturbed listening to this conversation on OPB this morning. After hearing the latest news that Califonia, due to its budget crisis, is cutting billions of dollars on education and medical services and even letting many inmates out of prison early, we are arguing about horses's rights and whether it is okay for us to eat the horse meat.
When even the basic human rights and needs are not met, can we seriously spend our energy, money and time on animal rights? I am an animal lover but don't think they are equal to or above us.
And, unless you are a vegetarian, how is a horse different from cow, pig, chicken or other farm animals that are eaten?
