See How Animal Producers Do Their Job!
I'd like to refute this from the pork people: "The biggest issue we face is that the American people are so far removed from agriculture and the way livestock and their meat is produced that they accept the emotional arguments which are not fact-based that the animal rights groups use to pass legislation to restrict the way producers raise animals," Stallman says. "We do care for our animals. We would not be successful otherwise and we do take care of their welfare. We just have to do a better job of telling that story to a public that really doesn't understand much about production agriculture." The biggest challenge for those who produce "meat" is that more people now know how those animals are raised than ever before. A mere decade ago this information was not available... Consumers had to rely on what images they were given that would prevent "emotional" entanglement or question... Technology has given everyone the opportunity to get all the facts they need with a few Google searches. And too the marvel of living today is that it's never been easier to eliminate animals from one's diet or lifestyle. There are so many healthy and tasty alternatives to choose from... A simple Google search will pull those up too! So Animal Rights activists will continue to tell the story, as I'm sure the
livestock deadstock industry will as well.

There's nothing "emotional" about it! We can thrive on a plant based vegan diet! The killing of animals is neither kind nor necessary. We are more informed than ever to make this choice - and to know that it is the right thing to do...
