Actually, meat consumption continues to decline in our country as more people are educating themselves about the health and environmental consequences of eating meat. Every time even one person goes vegetarian, they save the lives of more than 100 animals every single year.Ithink that’s worth it! And I’m so glad there’s an organization like PETA to fight the good fight.
Until people start spaying and neutering their animals, we will continue to haveahomeless animal crisis and cats and dogs will continue to flood animal shelters. There simply aren’t enough good homes for every animal in need. Personally,Iwould rather an animal be humanely euthanized than force them to livealife of misery and loneliness insideacramped cage.
Plants don’t have central nervous systems, nerve endings, or brains—cows, chicken, fish, etc. do. So there is no scientific proof or reason to believe that plants experience pain.
We have to start somewhere. This factory farm epidemic CAN be stopped. We have to start by dramatically reducing consumption which will in turn reduce the need and then farmers will reduce their production. It’s unrealistic to assume that everyone will stop eating meat suddenly around the world, so the scenario you mentioned isn’t reallyaconcern. The only reason U.S. factory farms raise and kill more than 10 billion animals every year is because people are asking for it. Let’s stop asking for it!
