The Deeper Minds Of All Ages Have Had Pity For Animals
Friedrich Nietzsche

Below are just a few quotes from those who supported animals rights beginning with the ancient world to the present day.

“We declare, then, that it is absurd for them to say that the practise of flesh-eating is based on nature . For that man is not naturally carnivorous is, in the first place, obvious from the structure of his body.   A mans frame is in no way similar to those creatures who were made for flesh-eating; he has no hooked beak or sharp nails or jagged teeth, no strong stomach or warmth of vital fluids able to digest and assimilate a heavy diet of flesh.”
Plutarch
