Their entire lives. In a cage. Unable to even turn around. Unable to nurture or be with their babies. Litter after litter. Pure misery and suffering. Because people think they can’t live without bacon and hot dogs. What a disgrace we are sometimes, as a species.
Have you compared the choice to be a paying customer of factory farm food with other animal issues that you find morally reprehensible? (Note: According to USDA statistics, over 99% of animals used for food in the United States come from factory farms.) For example, are you appalled by the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, the 10-day annual celebration in China at which up to 15,000 dogs are eaten? Are you against dog fighting? Or animal experimentation? Or animals used in circuses? How can it be wrong to harm animals for pleasure and profit in some cases but not others?
Do you consider yourself an animal lover? Do you become upset when you find out that a cat or dog has suffered and died due to neglect or abuse? Could you kill an animal yourself? Is there an ethical or practical difference between committing an act of violence yourself and paying someone else to do it for you? Have you ever watched the standard “humane” treatment and slaughter of farm animals?
These are difficult questions, and the tendency is to just not think about them. But the truth is that animal agriculture causes hundreds of billions of sweet, gentle animals to die having only known lives of agony and torture. Most of them never see the sun, or have the ability to turn around for their entire lives, before being brutally slaughtered with no pain relief. A measure of human moral progress is how we treat the innocent and helpless, and no one is more innocent and helpless than docile, vulnerable, gentle farm animals.
