"Never believe that animals suffer less than humans. Pain is the same for them that it is for us. Even worse, because they cannot help themselves."
Dr. Louis J. Camuti (1893-1981)
"The case against vivisection is the same as that against war and all other forms of cruelty - that violence does not produce long-term solutions."
