This video can be disturbing to you, but it certainly shows us the pain and suffering farm animals go through. That's why I gave up meat. I am convinced that any meat dish has a cruel past, and that's definitely a factor in choosing the food I consume. Don't get me wrong. I am a only newcomer to a non-meat diet. I stopped eating meat right after New Year's Eve, on Jan 1, 2008. I don't miss it at all, and through this time I have learned to see the animal behind any meat dish that comes into view. Part of my transformation is the realization that eating meat is eating a dead animal. That's what it really is, a dead animal whose parts you are eating. I now consider it an insult to my body to consume meat. It's as bad as smoking.
Support compassion for farm animals. If you are a voter in California, please vote YES on Proposition 2. If you can't give up meat, then at least support the better treatment fo farm animals. Your meat didn't have to stand in their own feces during their lifetime.
