Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Just Stating the Facts

Dan Murphy, a defender of animal agriculture, writes on Drovers (an Ag journal) about the closure of the CA slaughterhouse after allegations of animal abuse. Murphy, surprisingly, refers to the dairy industry in a very real way: an industry that too often exploits animals without any concern of their well-being, who as a result, end up with “weak, worn out and often struggling to remain ambulatory during transport to the increasingly few, distant cow plants.”

Please visit Commentary: When the cows come home:
I applaud Dan Murphy for stating what should be evident to everyone: dairy cows are one of the most abused animals in the food industry. They are impregnated year after year, their milk and their babies are stolen from them, they suffer mutilations without anesthesia, they live under confinement, fear and pain; and at the end of their lives, when they can no longer produce anymore milk or have anymore babies, they are sent to slaughter to die in horrific ways. Somehow, dairy products just don’t seem worth the suffering; and clearly, the dairy industry makes a mockery of God’s love for farmed animals.
