Over 56 -60 billion farmed animals are killed every year by humans. These shocking figures do not even include fish and other sea creatures whose deaths are so great they are only measured in tonnes.
Animals are not simply food products, but thinking, feeling individuals who want to enjoy their lives. It doesn’t matter how cute, intelligent, human-like, or different they seem in our eyes. Like us, they seek to avoid pain and have the same will to survive.
An animal's life is as important and irreplaceable to them, as ours is to us. But as children we are conditioned to view cows, pigs, chickens, sheep and fish as inferior beings whose reason for existence is to provide us with meat, milk and eggs. This way of seeing other species is known as speciesism.
It's time for us to change the way we see the other animals with which we share the planet. We need to stop thinking of them as just resources, and to start viewing them for who they are: individual sentient beings whose lives deserve to be respected and valued.
It doesn't matter if you are eating Dog, Cat, Pig, Cow or Monkey, they are all the same. It's just your perception and conditioning. Killing is killing, the species is immaterial.
Embrace compassion and non-violence. Love is unconditional. Be Kind. Live Kind. Live Vegan.
