    What alice in LA LA land conveniently failed to include in the “one generation and out” quote was the actual context of the remark, which referred to heirloom breeds of cattle – The quote from John Goodwin, who manages our animal fighting campaign, is over 15 years old and doesn’t reflect his current views, nor has it ever represented the HSUS’s position. Our organization’s factory farming campaign addresses animal welfare issues in production, transport, and slaughter. HSUS membership and staff include both meat-eaters and vegetarians. The important thing is that readers can evaluate this issue for themselves by going to our website at and/or following our CEO’s blog at

    sadly your article did not expand on what the HSUS really stands for .. let me clarify it for you:

    “We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. . One generation and out. We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding.” Wayne Pacelle,… Humane Society of the US,
    “My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture.” JP Goodwin, employed at the Humane Society of the US,

    That should give your readers a more clear view of what the HSUS stands for.. and any “compromise” given to them is an incremental step in the direction that they state above..
    Friends Don’t let Friends Donate to the HSUS”.. stop the money.. and you will stop the cult
