Speech: Founder and Executive Director of Mercy For Animals Nathan Runkle delivered a moving speech

‘I loved (and love) animals and I don’t want to be involved in anything that causes or contributes to their suffering. At first this led me to give up beef and chicken. Then go fishing (if you’ve ever spent time fishing, you realize pretty quickly that they feel pain and are much happier if they aren’t hooked, speared, or netted).

Then I thought, “I don’t want to contribute to animal cruelty. But the cows and chickens in commercial dairies and egg farms are pretty miserable, so why am I still eating milk and eggs?” So in 1987 I gave up all animal products and became vegan.

Just so I could eat and live in accordance with my belief that animals have their own lives, that they have a right to their own, and that contributing to animal suffering is something I don’t want to be a part of. ‘
