Animal rights activist: 'Kill the researchers'

Animal rights activist: 'Kill the researchers'
Senate committee shocked by testimony of ALF spokesman

WASHINGTON – A radical animal rights activist shocked members of the U.S. Senate this week by advocating the murder of those conducting medical research.

Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front, told the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works that killing medical researchers was "morally justified" to save laboratory animals.

Vlasak compared the life of lab animals to African American slaves and the Jewish victims of Nazi concentration camps.

He made his comments while defending a similar statement, made to the news media last year: "I don't think you'd have to kill – assassinate – too many vivisectors before you would see a marked decrease in the amount of vivisection going on. And I think for five lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives."

"It is so revolting to hear what you say about murder – these aren't extermination camps," said Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-NJ. "What's being done, whether you like it or not, is to try and improve the quality of life for human beings. I believe that laboratory tests involving animals can be necessary and important for the advancement of science and medicine and the protection of public health."

The hearing was called to investigate the animal rights group SHAC, whose mission is to force the closure of one of America's largest independent contract research organizations, Huntongton Life Sciences. Recently, the New York Stock Exchange abruptly postponed its long-planned listing of HLS's holding company, Life Sciences Research Inc. following threats against the exchange made by SHAC.

Sen. James Inhofe, R-OK, told the FBI's counterterrorism Deputy Assistant Director John E. Lewis, who also testified, that he plans to introduce legislation that will grant law enforcement greater flexibility in tracking and prosecuting those who break the law.

"That's not a maybe," he vowed after hearing Vlasak. "That's a definite."

Another witness, Mark Bibi, general counsel for LSRI, recounted how his private property was vandalized by SHAC.

"The car was covered with animal rights graffiti," he said. "Warning messages were spray painted all over my house."

Witness Skip Boruchin of NASDAQ, who was targeted by SHAC for having a business relationship with HLS, reported the group slandered him as a sex offender and harassed his elderly mother while she was residing in an assisted living home.

LSRI reportedly lost millions of dollars in business and spent over $1 million on legal costs. Its share price was battered.

Vlasak described himself as a "former vivisector" and the press officer of the North American Liberation Front.

"The actions of underground activists who care enough about animals to speak out in no uncertain terms, and at times to risk their own lives and freedom, have a message that is most urgent and one that deserves to be heard and understood," he said. "Often underground animal liberation speech and actions either go unreported in the media or are uncritically vilified as 'violent' or 'terrorist,' with no attention paid to the needless and senseless suffering that industries and individuals gratuitously inflict on animals."

He claimed HLS kills 500 animals a day and "will test anything for anybody. They carry out experiments which involve poisoning animals with household products, pesticides, drugs, herbicides, food colorings and additives, sweeteners and genetically modified organisms, oven cleaner and make up."

Vlasak said the company was infiltrated in 1997 by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and found information that forced HLS to plead guilty to animal cruelty violations and pay a $50,000 fine.

He said it was important to realize "SHAC is not one group, or hierarchical entity, but an ideologically aligned group consisting on thousands of people who gather in various groups to protest the atrocities perpetrated by HLS."

Vlasak celebrated the fact that HLS has been brought to the brink of financial ruin.

In 1973 two things happened:

1. The Endangered Species Act was enacted where animals, trees and scum in rain puddles became protected under law.

2. Roe vs. Wade where 9 mortals, allowed it to be made possible for Humanity to slaughter, burn, aspirate and sever Human Babies, created in God's image and likeness. Since then, humanity, and the USA,  spiraled in a downward trend.

Touch a turtle egg or its nest, Canadian goose or a spotted OWL and get a yr. in jail and a $50K fine, and don't cut down certain trees or fill in that puddle! abort a child, get paid $750.00. And we wonder why there is NO respect for HUMAN life created in God's image.

This is why we need to inculcate a culture of life in our society in general and in churches and schools (starting in kindergarten) . People tend to think of children as disposable items.

A pro-life education Program

It's a grievous sin that animals and turtle eggs are afforded more protections and rights than a human fetus and baby created in God's Image with a soul.

Genesis 9:3
Every creature that is alive shall be yours to eat; I give them all to you as I did the green plants.

Kill the humans (abortion) and save the Bears, the spotted owls, the Canadian Geese and the whales and don't crack that turtle egg!!

You can get fined up to $10,000 for messing with those eggs and baby-killing physicians get paid government and private money $$$ to kill humans! Go figure.

The Endangered Species Program

Page 4 Sec 3 (c)(8) don't crack those eggs, one might end the "life" of a bird, fish or turtle. I guess certain "mammals" (humans) do not apply.

Science and the ESA

The Govt. recognizes that a fertilized egg from an animal is "alive" and protected by LAW (The Endangered Species Act of 1973) and when an "alive" person created in God's image is growing and living in his mother, he's termed and given the moniker of just a blob of "unlive" protoplasm or tissue which can be aspirated if it's the mother's "choice" to do so with no protections under the 5th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution.

But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for EVERY careless word they have spoken."--Jesus (Matt. 12:36)

In Florida, women dying in bed have less rights than turtle eggs! (FL Law 370, US ESA of 1973)

William Jasper, author of "A New World Religion" describes the religion of the UN: "...a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism atheism, communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism".

Sea Turtles are endangered because of all of the people buying property on the coast. That is the truth.

yep, and God's image is endangered because of abortion. Sad thing is, is that the US Govt. and the State of FL. protect the turtle eggs while offering NO protection to human babies in utero. Sick, isn't it?

The other flaw in their "logic" is their belief that we are animals. According to their premise doesn't our species quailfy for protection?

I don't mean to thread crap but Canadian Geese are still legal to shoot. :) I'm getting two sent to me for the holidays from a friend in Montana. *yum*

As for the rest of your post, i couldn't agree more.

In many states they are protected. In NJ there are huge problems with feces in parks, soccer fields and our drinking water is infected with fecal coliforms because of them. It's laughable where the liberals in govt. hire dogs or install fake owls and scarecrows to try to scare them away. Nothing works. Liberals and animal rights activists are really insane, and evil.

Canadian Geese, Endangered Species

In my opinion, one of my big worries is that it won't be long before radical Leftist environmental groups start resort to Islamic-style terrorism to get their point across. Will America stand up and take notice when a suicide bomber associated with Earth First!, Earth Liberation Front or Animal Liberation Front walks into a crowded fast-food restaurant at lunchtime and blow himself or herself up, killing 20 or more people in the blast?

These people, who worship the creature rather than the creator, are simply anti-capitalist. Their credo is a smokescreen for their actual agenda, which is to derail corporate profits gleaned from animal research. The so called environmentalist movement is similar, but they want to destroy private property rights (a bane to Marxists everywhere) through "environmental protection" laws and treaties.

Drop an egg, and according to the government it is equivalent to killing the bird, because the egg will eventually become a bird. Try to use the same logic to give rights to the fetus, and the government will laugh and kick you out of the office and throw your legal brief into the wastebasket.

ELF thinks they can kill a few to teach thousands. Sounds like the only way to deal with ELF is to kill thousands of them to teach one of them.
