Farmers’ Moral Dilemma

Because consumers are getting informed about how animals raised for food are treated in factory farms, farmers have to deal with the moral dilemma of animal exploitation for the sake of taste and profit.

However, the ethical relativism of our culture is so prevalent that as Wes Jamison, University of Florida public relations researcher and professor, said "Most consumers are profound hypocrites,"... "They want to have their meat and take it to the vet, too."

In fact, Jamison goes a step further and suggests farmers to take a stand by saying, "We need to reassert our right as agriculturalists and say we're proud of what we do. We need to say 'You know what? It takes the death of something for you to live, and we are unashamed.'"

Consumers are slowly waking up to the truth: healthy animals are exploited and killed for the sake of humanity’s taste buds, while others, such as pets, are treated like family and will even get presents this Christmas. This moral dilemma is not only faced by farmers, but by every human who must decide to support the exploitation of God’s animals or choose a compassionate and peaceful plant-based diet.
