NZ Vegan Podcast Episode 3

Listen HERE

Episode 3 relates the famous case of Margaret Garner, the African American slave who murdered one of her children to prevent them from being placed in slavery, and was therefore tried for "destruction of property" although the Abolitionists attempted to have her recognized as a member of society and have her tried for murder. This is a good example to illustrate the principal of slavery, or property ownership of sentient beings.
