Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
A Step Forward

Beginning Oct 31, The Harvard University Hospitality and Dining Services will only serve cage-free eggs in the dining halls. This announcement has been applauded by compassionate consumers and animal activist groups because it should help reduce the suffering of billions of hens confined in battery-cages every year. Josh M. Balk, spokesperson for the Humane Society of the United States said that “Switching to cage-free eggs is one of the most important actions a university can take to help oppose cruelty to animals.”

Any step to alleviate animal suffering is a step toward achieving peace and to be better stewards. Although eggs are not necessary in a well-balanced diet --they are loaded with cholesterol-- people who choose to eat eggs should at least stop supporting the battery-caged hen industry and reduce the consumption of eggs as much as possible. Battery-caged hens are the most abused animals in agribusiness.
