Please look at this sentient individual. Is it not obvious that it’s wrong to breed them into existence for a life of misery followed by a violent and early death?
No animal is exploited and killed willingly or painlessly, no matter how supposedly “humane” we may tell ourselves it can be done. Even under the so-called “best” of animal welfare standards, their treatment would be considered nothing less than torture if humans were involved.
So, why pay for and support it? We don’t need to eat any animal foods for our health, so this violence is completely unnecessary and easily avoidable.
Going vegan is easy, healthy, one of the most impactful actions we can take for the environment, and is literally the very least we owe other sentient animals to not harm and kill them for unnecessary and trivial purposes.
Please consider the very real impact of your food and consumption choices, and go vegan.
