It is such a wonderful deed to save another being from getting innocently killed!!
All sentient beings have the right to live - regardless if it is your dog, or cat, a lobster or an owl.
A cow, or a horse, or a dog, or a cat -- is there any difference? They are all sentient beings, they all have feelings, they all want to live and they all love their family!!!!!
We all agree that it is morally wrong to cause unnecessary suffering and death to animals -- and condemn people who for example enjoy and promote killing innocent dogs just because they got tired of them. However, we must also acknowledge that all animal products-eating is unnecessary and is done merely for "taste" and "enjoyment". So if we want to be moral we must also act upon what we acknowledge -that causing unnecessary suffering and death to animals is unnecessary. We always need to take the victims point of view!!!
The plant-based foods that the more than 56 billion land animals (who have the sadly misfortune to grow up to become someones food) brutally slaughtered each year eats could feed more than 9 billion people.
15 million children are dieing of starvation in the world each year. Hundreds of millions don't get enough food. If we care of them we must let our eating habits reflect this. If everyone ate plant-based food, the food would suffice for everyone's need.
If we care for other humans, if we care for animals -- the choice is easy - stop treating animals as objects/beings by exploiting and killing them; and we will eventually have world peace. See the book World Peace Diet by Will Tuttle, and the film Earthlings to learn more.
