But what about people who call themselves ethical meat-eaters?
Doing something ethical by definition means that you’re doing something right or good.
And while a lot of companies sell animal products using labels such as ‘humane’ or ‘free-range’ to ease the minds of consumers and increase business – the truth is that cruelty is inherent in these products.
This is especially true of meat – which requires the violent slaughter of the animals.
No matter how animals are raised (and let’s be real – more than 95 percent of all animals bred for meat are raised on factory farms) they are all killed the same merciless way: They are hung upside down – often while still conscious – and their throats are slit.
A self-proclaimed ‘ethical’ meat-eater must assume the unnecessary killing of an animal is ethical.
That’s quite an assumption – considering no animal wants to die.
