Daily Voice : Support Dignity in Dying
« Reply #336 on: June 09, 2014, 01:00:38 AM »
Support Dignity in Dying

Heather Pratten's son Nigel had Huntington's disease. On his 42nd birthday, he asked his mother to help him die.

Nigel knew he would suffer terribly, and he reached out to medical professionals, friends and family to help him die with dignity. Unfortunately, there were no legal opportunities for him to do so. His mother, Heather, chose to help her son fulfill his wishes, even though she faced 14 years in prison for doing so. In her son's greatest hour of need, Heather chose his needs over her own future.

No one else should be forced to make this choice. Dignity in Dying is a campaign to to legalise assisted dying, within upfront safeguards, for terminally ill, mentally competent adults.

If you believe the law should change, please sign your name in support of the Assisted Dying Bill.

Without a change in the law, dying people will suffer against their wishes at the end of life and will continue to make decisions without the advice of medical or social care professionals. The legalisation of assisted dying - which 76% of adults in England and Wales support - will give dying people greater choice and greater protection by introducing up-front safeguards that check for abuse and coercion before somebody dies.

The case for change is clear -- unbearable suffering, inflicted on a dying person who wishes to die, is unjust and unacceptable. We cannot achieve change without your help. Show your support for dignity in dying.

Daily Voice : Save the Kermode Bear and Rainforest
« Reply #337 on: June 10, 2014, 01:00:29 AM »
Save the Kermode Bear and Rainforest

Fewer than 400 Kermode bears, (also known as Spirit Bears), inhabit the Great Bear Rainforeston on the coast area of British Columbia, Canada, that stretches from the Alaska panhandle southwards to the northern tip of Vancouver Island. And approximately 120 Spirit Bears inhabit the large Princess Royal Island.The Kemode Bear is a subspecies of the American Black Bear but about 1/10 of their population has white or cream-coloured coats. They are not albinos and not any more related to polar bears or the "blonde" brown bears of Alaska. They are a unique subspecies of bear found nowhere else.The bear's habitat is potentially under threat from the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines, whose planned route passes near the Great Bear Rainforest. Stop plans for the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline and protect the rainforest and the unique Kermode Bear.

Daily Voice : We Can End Arctic Drilling - For Good

We Can End Arctic Drilling - For Good

The pristine waters of America's Arctic Ocean are in danger.These waters provide critical habitat for iconic species such as polar bears, whales, and walrus that are already suffering the effects of dramatic climate change. Approving oil drilling is a move away from a clean energy economy and towards a deeper reliance on dirty fossil fuels while putting our Arctic Ocean and the wildlife that thrives there at unnecessary risk. Worse still, no technology currently exists to clean up oil spilled in these frozen and remote seas.An appeals court in January ordered the Department of the Interior to reconsider its decision to offer millions of acres of oil leases in the Chukchi Sea, and Shell's attempts to drill in the Arctic Ocean in 2012 were a disaster, leading to the grounding of its drill ship, pollution fines, and multiple government investigations.The message is clear -- drilling for oil in the Arctic Ocean is a very bad idea. Urge Secretary Jewell to say no to offshore oil drilling in these remote waters.

Daily Voice : Save Thailand Tigers from Poisoning

Save Thailand Tigers from Poisoning

There only around 200 tigers remaining in Thailand, - 38 of them at an important tiger sanctuary in Huai Kha Khaeng. Recently the tigers on the sanctuary have been poisoned; lured by meat laced with insecticide- leaving two cubs dead near the meat and the mother taken by poachers.The Indochinese tiger is already under threat from shrinking habitat, illegal trade in tiger parts for traditional medicines and a scarcity of prey. With only 3,200 wild tigers remaining worldwide, we ask Thailand to support conservation efforts and protect critically endangered tigers and their habitat in the park from this newest threat to wild tigers.

Daily Voice : Tell Indonesia- Tigers Are Not "Pet Rentals"

Tell Indonesia- Tigers Are Not "Pet Rentals"

With less than 400 critically endangered Sumatran tigers left in the wild, Indonesian officials have proposed a conservation plan which would allow wealthy citizens to have tigers as pets for a fee,- about $107,000 per pair.
The sustainable solution is to offer specific protection to the critically endangered tigers: from habitat loss and from poaching. Tiger rental is not a good stategy as it will create a demand and tigers will be taken from the wild more rapidly than ever.

Tell Indonesia- do not rent out the critically endangered tigers as pets- keep them in the wild and preserve their remaining natural habitat by banning logging; otherwise they will become extinct in the wild permanently. Two other subspecies of Indonesian tiger have already been lost, the Bali tiger and Javan tiger.

Daily Voice : Last Chance to Help Tony the Tiger!
« Reply #342 on: June 14, 2014, 02:17:41 PM »
Last Chance to Help Tony the Tiger!

For more than ten years, Tony the Tiger has been kept as a tourist attraction at Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse Tête, Louisiana, where he is confined to a 3,200 square-foot cage.

The Louisiana Senate has created a bill (S.B. 250) that would allow Michael Sandlin, the owner of the truck stop, to keep Tony, in defiance of Louisiana's own laws. Legislation passed in 2006 banned ownership of tigers in Louisiana.

But anyone who had owned a tiger prior to 2006 was grandfathered in and allowed to keep their animals.

S.B. 250 has been specifically designed to appease Sandlin and allow him to continue to keep Tony.

Animal welfare activists have campaigned for years to make Sandlin release Tony and have him sent to a sanctuary where he can be free to roam. We have to act now to prevent S.B. 250 from passing and condemning Tony to a life of captivity.

Tell Governor Bobby Jindal to veto S.B. 250 and free Tony!

Daily Voice : Tell New York- Ban Foie Gras (force fed ducks)

Tell New York- Ban Foie Gras (force fed ducks)

"Foie gras," literally fatty liver, is a disease marketed as a delicacy. It is the liver of a duck or goose enlarged to up to 10 times its normal size by force feeding, produced by cruel and inhumane farming practices.At just a few months old, ducks are confined inside dark sheds and force-fed enormous amounts of food several times a day. A farm worker grabs each duck and, one by one, thrusts a metal pipe down their throats so that a mixture of corn can be forced directly into their gullets. In just a matter of weeks, the ducks become grossly overweight and their livers expand up to 10 times their normal size. Ducks suffer impaired liver function, and the expansion of the abdomen makes it difficult for birds to breathe. Insertion and removal of the feeding tube scratches the throat and the esophagus, causing irritations and wounds and thus exposing the animal to risk of mortal infections.Consider banning foie gras because of the inherent cruelty involved in force-feeding waterfowl to make them so sick that their organs swell up to ten times their normal size. 15 nations around the world have either banned force-feeding outright or deemed it illegal under established animal protection laws.
