What about killing animals for medicinal and other scientific research purposes
PAVF believes that such killings if done humanely and to the extent, there is no other alternative may not be unethical. Medicinal and medical use of animals could benefit the entire mankind but should be done for these limited purposes only.
In any case I can not live without meat, fish and egg.
It’s true that most meat-eaters think like that because they are grown up eating these items only and are in fact addicted to meat and meat-based foods. Most meat-eaters are unaware that an enormous number of plant-based excellent foods are available for human consumption. However, it’s profitable for the multinational food chains to serve us […]
What is wrong in eating Fish?
Fish consumption is as unethical as red meat. Fishing involves killing the fish for no valid reason. Fish is an extremely concentrated source of protein, cholesterol, and heavy metals. The smaller the fish, the more likely you are to eat the intestines and fecal material along with the animal. The bigger fish eat the smaller […]
It’s okay to eat eggs because chickens lay them naturally.
The eggs we buy in the supermarket are sterile and not unborn fetuses.” This is true, but the real cruelty of egg production lies in the treatment of the “laying hens” themselves, who are perhaps the most abused of all factory-farmed animals. Each egg from today’s factory farms represents 22 hours of misery for a […]
If you were starving on a boat at sea, and there was an animal on the boat, would you eat the animal?
I don’t know. Humans will go to extremes to save their own lives, even if it means hurting someone innocent. (People have even killed and eaten other people in such situations.) This example, however, isn’t relevant to our daily choices. For most of us, there is no emergency and no excuse to kill animals for […]
Why should vegetarians drink milk since milk is also an animal product?
Vegetarians are not against animal products but violence against innocent animals. It is possible to produce milk without harming the animal. Unlike meat, chicken, or fish, the animal is not killed during or after milking. There is nothing wrong with the human use of animals to the extent violence is not caused. The Creator has […]
What’s wrong in killing animals raised for food?
The answer is who gave humans the right to kill animals raised by them? Can a mother kill a little child just because she raised the child? We all have a right to produce but none has a right to kill other creatures deliberately for self-interest and that too for food and taste only. Better […]
I didn’t kill the animal.
No, but you hired the killer. Whenever you purchase meat or fish, which means that the killing was done for you and you paid for it.
I know a vegetarian who is unhealthy.
There are healthy and unhealthy vegetarians. But doctors agree that vegetarians who eat a varied, low-fat diet stand a much better chance of living longer, healthier lives than their meat-eating counterparts.
Eating meat is natural. It’s been going on for thousands of years. Our bodies are designed that way.
Actually, human bodies are better suited for a vegetarian diet. Carnivorous animals have long, curved fangs, claws, and a short digestive tract. Humans have flat, flexible nails and our so-called “canine” teeth are minuscule compared to those of carnivores, and even compared to vegetarian primates like gorillas and orangutans. Our tiny canine teeth are better […]
