Moral Argument: Meat Eating

KatelynnChambers
Mirza

The consumption of animal flesh by modern human beings is morally wrong. Humans have moved beyond the necessity of killing and eating animals for food.

Previously participated in this debate, however after much effort opponent forfeited in the second round. I will port my opening here. 10k characters, 4 rounds. I expect evidence to back up your BoP in demonstrating that, on balance, vaccinations are not safe and beneficial, just as I will provide evidence where I bear the BoP for demonstrating my arguments.I take no issue with giving you the opportunity to see my arguments prior to the debate.
