XENOTRANSPLANTAION or "Harvesting" Animals for Blood and Organs:

"Xenotransplantation" or the use of animals as "blood & organ harvesting machines" is far from safe and may be the means of introducing deadly new viral diseases into the human population, for which there are no known cures.  It is speculated by the scientific community that the AIDS HIV virus was introduced by human contact with tissue and plasma from a Rhesus monkey used by animal experimenters several years ago.  While the HIV virus had no effect on a Rhesus monkey's health, it caused deadly effects when introduced to a human host.  Xenotransplantation could unleash other potentially deadly effects upon human health; not to mention the cruelty involved in breeding and imprisoning intelligent, emotional beings to "harvest" their body parts and blood.

WHAT CAN YOU DO? If  you live in the USA:
1.) Call 1-800-SAY-AAVS, or visit their web site at:
http://www.aavs.org  to learn about the Campaign for Responsible Transplantation.
2.) Begin a dialog with 2 or 3 colleagues who may not yet realize the consequences of Xenotransplantation.
3.) Send a letter to your Congresspersons.  You can locate your 2 U.S. Senators' and 1 U.S. Representatives' contact information at:

Animal factories are one more sign of the extent to which
our technological capacities have advanced faster than our ethics...
We make free species extinct and domestic species into biomachines.


 We build cruelty into our diet. -- J. Mason
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged
by the way its animals are treated. -- Mohandas Gandhi
The love for all living creatures is the most noble 
attribute of man. -- Charles Darwin
 

If you couldn't bear electric shocks, the clamps that break legs, the cramped cage with no room to move......neither can they......... don't buy cruelty....... go vegan.

If we love our non human companions, why not extend this to all non human animals. They feel, love their young and their lives are just as precious to them, as ours is to us. Visit PETA.org

Lets have respect for life ............. ban vivisection
