“Humanely Raised” is not “Free of Exploitation”

Stephanie Ernst, a freelance editor and writer, and independent animal rights advocate, believes the animal rights movement might be lost in the factory farming turmoil and therefore losing sight of its essence, which is to bring animal exploitation to an end. Ernst sites the trendy movement of opposing factory farming by supporting "humane" animal agriculture such as "free-range", "grass-fed" or "cage-free". When vegetarians go back to eating animals with not ethical objection and actually feel good about it, Ernst truly believes we have a problem that needs to be tackled soon before this trend distorts the fundamentals of the animal rights movement.
