“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality."
- Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher”
“The law is that prisoners have a right to refuse any treatment, and physicians have to respect that informed decision that those individuals have consented to. So anything that breaches that informed decision is not defensible in law.”
