Nonviolence includes all beings.
Farmed animals feel pain and fear just like the animals we share our homes with, yet they are abused in ways that would be illegal if dogs and cats were the victims. In today’s meat industry, chickens and turkeys have their throats slit while still conscious, piglets have their tails and testicles cut off without painkillers, and fish are suffocated or cut open while still alive. Nothing could be further form the virtue of loving-kindness.
A peaceful world begins on our plates.
