Dental research on pigs at UBC: Words from an activist

After learning of the horrific research done on pigs at UBC from the ADAV Society, a young activist, Zi Paris, wrote a powerful poem, which she shared with the UBC’s dentistry department and the President’s Office. We wanted to share it with you as well.

Ow
my mouth, my mouth
Ow,
the human-creatures
have put me in this cage
and are hurting me
Why
why
why
Dear Lord, Creator of all that is,
Why me?
Were that I were dead
like some of my cousins used for food
At least their suffering is over
One quick blow and
Darkness
But such is my fate
such is 
my
life
