Your Presence is Requested

Would you walk up to a healthy animal and sledgehammer her in the head? Then, regardless of her state of consciousness, would you haul her up by her legs, and slit her throat? Then, regardless of her consciousness, would slice her open from stem to stern? Then, regardless of her state of consciousness, would you peel her skin off? Probably not.

But would give money to someone to do it for you, while you watched? Probably not. But would you give money to someone to do it for you while you turned away? Probably not. But would you give money to someone to do it for you while you were a hundred miles away? Yes.

It's wrong. You have to admit that it's wrong. These are innocent animals that have done nothing to harm you.

Hands off the Animals. Please.

    Voted. I know Mark, it is unbelievable isn't it? The disconnect most people have between the meat they eat and how it is produced, what they are paying for someone else to do. You might be interested in my latest blog, Pull Down The Ivory Towers, and if you like it, please vote!:-)

      Voted for yours too Veganara. We simply have to expand our reach (even more than we already do) to those who haven't yet made the connection. We can each of us do a little more than we already do.

    i know, this drives me crazy! i am always teasing my meat eating mates that they are hiring safeway or whole foods as their 'hitmen.' murder for hire! it's funny but it's not because it is sort of true! eek.

      That is a great point to make! We all claim to have compassion, but for many humans, the compassion only goes as far as personal convenience. Too few of us pink monkeys go much out of our way to help those in need.
