"The bravest account of 2015. Sympathy at Slaughter is reminding everyone that the only thing we need from the animals is their forgiveness"
- PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
Are non-human animals property to be owned and used, or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?
Its tempting to want to believe that the meat we eat is ethical, that our 'food animals' have lives full, happy lives and that they have experienced no pain or fear at the slaughterhouse. Yet the sad truth is that all living creatures (even those labelled 'free range' or 'organic') fear death, just as we do. No matter how they are treated when alive, all animals experience the same fear when it comes to the slaughterhouse.
Ask me anything!
