As a result of selective breeding, farmed animals live their lives trapped in genetically tampered bodies whose planned malfunctioning is designed to increase the producer’s profits while causing untold physical and psychological pain to the animals whose hearts fail and whose bones break under the morbid weight they are designed to gain at an abnormally fast rate, and whose systems are ravaged by the forced overproduction of babies, eggs or milk.

Isolated from the natural world to which they belonged for millennia, farmed animals are forced to live their short lives in severely degraded physical and psychological environments that are far different from the ecosystems and cultures from which they historically derive. Severed from the intricate social structures that governed and guided their free-living communities and confined, without the possibility of escape, to a human world where they have no place in the present, no link to the past, and no possibility of a future, domesticated animals have no power whatsoever over the most important aspects of their lives.

 

Humans.decide where they will live; if they will ever know their mother; if, and how long, they will nurse their babies; when, and if, they will be permitted to see or be with their families and friends; when, where, or if they will be allowed to socialize with members of their own species; when, how, and if, they are going to reproduce; what, when, and how much they will eat; how much space they will have, if any; if, and how far, they will be allowed to roam; what mutilations they will be subjected to; what, if any, veterinary care they will receive; when, where, and how they are going to die.

Whether raised on family farms or “factory farms”, domesticated animals are forced to remain forever vulnerable and dependent on the very people who exploit and kill them. Legally regarded as property, they are denied not only the most basic freedom to ever become self-governing individuals, but the most fundamental right to exist.
