When it comes to having a central nervous system, and the ability to feel pain, hunger, and fear, it is the same with human and animal. ~ Ingrid Newkirk, founder of PETA
If people saw how the animals suffered, sometimes for many months with no reprieve, all for us to have a tasty bite, we would reconsider what we were eating. If you watched the animal heartlessly being killed, would you be able to then sit down and enjoy that very meat on your plate? If you knew that animal prior to eating, could you eat it? There are few-to-no laws to prevent animal abuse in factory farming, transportation, rendering. The humans that work in these killing factories are mostly psychopaths, and often purposely severly injure an animal for their release of their emotional problems.
