I'm Vegan To Prevent Needless Slaughter and Torture

by Kelly Madsen
(Illinois)

I started flirting with being a vegan when I read the book Skinny Bitch. I love all living creatures and it just brings me to tears to think about the way they are treated to feed people. It also makes me sick to think that what's on the dinner table used to have eyes and breathe.


I became firmly committed after reading Alicia Silverstone's book The Kind Diet. I know that being a vegan and the matriarch of a meat/dairy eating family isn't going to be easy. I also know that I am going to have to work to find a lot of the organic grains and produce that I need to eat, but it is definitely worth the effort knowing that I am not personally contributing to the needless slaughter and torture of another living creature.

Animal Abuse on Farms

by Bryan
(Dubuque, IA)

I am vegan because of animal abuse.

I have been vegetarian for many years and saw a video on the peta site that captured the abuse of a dairy cow. Needless to say, this cow was kicked and beated with its legs broken and left to swelter in the sun all day in its own feces and urine with no water until it was killed. I said to myself that day never again will anything animal related touch my mouth.

People are not educated on the subject and live unattached lives with no knowledge of how animals are abused for our consumption.

My Gramma Slaughtered Pigs
by: Irene

As a child I went on vacations to my grandma's pig farm. And that was when I started to realize who I really was inside. I never forget for Christmas time how grandma raise the pigs and then on that time I would see the man with the cowboy hat and the cowboy boots come in I would hide in a corner in the kitchen and I would hear the pig crying and screaming for help then it would stop and I would cry as well.

At that time I did not understand what was going on with me. All I knew that I did not like meat but that was not acceptable in my roots. It even got to the point that it did not go well with my body did not digested well. I belief my body was talking and also was helping me so my family stop pushing me to eat meat. But even still they would say I was strange or what was wrong with me and that was some thing I was making up. Our own roots and family can be so cruel.

Animals are Treated Cruelly
by: Shell Berman

When I saw the cruel way animals in this world are treated so we could eat them it made me sick. They are forced in small areas with no regards or respect for them as living beings. They suffer while the rest of the world looks the other way. God help us all.
