#20 Killing Babies

Many forms of meat that meat people consume are actually dead babies.

Young or baby animals are routinely slaughtered for human consumption. Furthermore, the practice of producing other animal products often results in killing babies.

Here are some examples of how meat people kill babies:

  • Veal & Dairy - Veal comes from dead calves. The babies are a byproduct of the dairy industry. If people stopped drinking milk, veal production would likely end.
  • Eggs - The male chicks in the egg industry are useless and so they are usually killed as babies. Often they are ground up alive, sometimes they are gassed, and other times they are smothered by each other when they're tossed into garbage bins.
  • Pork - Piglets are taken away from their mothers at an early age (2-3 weeks). As a result, many die right then. When they are about 6 months old, they are slaughtered. For perspective, a pig's natural lifespan is about 15 years.
  • Turkey - Turkeys naturally live 10-20 years, but they're usually slaughtered at younger than two years. Free-range can be even worse. They tend to be slaughtered at 14 and 25 weeks of age.
  • Chicken - Chickens are sometimes slaughtered as young as three weeks of age. By 14 weeks of age, nearly all chickens (caged as well as "free-range") are slaughtered. Naturally, they'd live much longer, up to 15 years.
  • Beef - Dairy cows are often slaughtered at about four years, sometimes while pregnant. Beef cattle are normally is slaughtered between 9 and 30 months of age. The average lifespan for a cow or bull is about 7 years.
  • Lamb - Lamb comes from baby sheep. US Lamb Grades: Baby Lamb or hothouse lamb (lambs slaughtered at between 6 and 8 weeks of age), Spring Lamb (between 3 and 5 months of age), Lamb (under one year of age), Mutton (Sheep over 1 year of age, typically slaughtered by 2 years of age). Sheep can live up to 15 years.
Since virtually all meat comes from dead baby animals, one can only conclude that meat people like killing babies. You may want to reconsider that omnivorous babysitter.
