Sadly, They Feel Proud of Themselves

You know, deep down, people are animals. It's just a matter of simple biology. In the case of these animal "rights" protestors their taxonomy should be changed from Homo sapiens to Canis mesomelas. Digging up a woman's remains in order to ransom (extort?) her guinea-pig raising descendants is simply beyond the pale. Unfortunately, the family has announced that they will shut down the operation that supllied guinea pigs for medical experimentation.

I have one thing to say to this spokesman of the group responsible for this outrage
A spokesman for Stop the Newchurch Guinea Pigs, who gave his name as Johnny and would not reveal his surname, said:

"This is the most fantastic day of my life.

"It's a victory for the animals and it's a fundamental victory for the animal rights movement. I feel so unbelievably proud to be part of the movement."

Johnny, I can not voice any support for your opinion unless you are willing to volunteer for medical experimentation in place of the noble guinea pig. Otherwise, I remain unconvinced that you truly value the life of a guinea pig as much as you do your own.
