Animal meat should be banned
The human race has always frowned upon mass slaughter of innocent people. Hitler, a prime example tortured, deprived and murdered thousands. We see this as a sin, a crime punishable by death so why is slaughtering millions of animals; living, breathing, feeling as we do, not recognised as un-just and inhumane?
How many of you have pets? Do they love you, make you smile and keep you company when you"re sad or alone? Now imagine YOUR animal, the one that you love dearly, hung up on a meat hook. Their hearts torn from their corps and the blood that used to keep them warm, pouring out of them, splashing onto the cold hard ground. Heart breaking isn"t it. If you feel this way about your animals, why do you not feel the same way for the poor, innocent, defenceless animals that you are having for dinner? They would have been cooped in tiny cages, force fed growth enhancers to make them plump enough for you to eat. Chickens for example get fed arsenic to make their meat pink. As soon as the animals are born, they are snatched from their mothers and kept in environments that are fit for no living creature.
Many may argue that we need the nutritious values that they contain" but do we really? Supplements such as Quorn" provide the same nutrients in their fat free vegetarian alternatives. 7/8 people we gave Quorn" to said they couldn"t tell the difference between meat and the alternative, showing that they must taste just as good. These types of food are made with love, not blood. If you believe that you couldn"t possibly live without meat, bring your children up from birth as vegetarians. Research has shown that vegetarians tend to live longer, healthier lives. Why? Because they have lower blood pressure, lower risk of death, less chance of heart disease and cancer and have less chance of becoming obese. Surely you would want your child to be as healthy as possible, after all, if they have been vegetarian since birth, they will never know what they are "missing".
Lots believe that we eat animals as it is part of the natural food chain, survival of the fittest but is breading them to be weak, making them tired and depriving them of normal, natural food giving them a fair chance?
Could you imagine having your child snatched from you as soon as they were born to be later tied and slaughtered, possibly in front of your own eyes whilst you are bound behind gates, unable to help your poor, defenceless child? Makes you want to cry doesn"t it. So why, ask yourselves, would you let this same scenario happen to them? They may not be as intelligent however they can feel EVERY ounce of pain we do. They still have emotion and love towards off springs. Why are we letting murderers that go by the name of butchers, provide us with unhealthy, fattening food that has the potential to kill us? Bucher, it"s in the name!
Mc Donalds" for example mass kill animals to provide us with food that could make us ill if not cooked properly or kill if we eat too much. Has the world turned a blind eye to the fact that killing them could kill us? Just because you do not butcher and slaughter, it doesn"t mean it doesn"t happen.

I'm probably not the right person for this argument but I'll take a shot anyway.

Your argument isn't based on much more than emotion, the simple fact is that the strong eat the weak. That's how it always was and how it always will be, why should that change? Banning something that has been practiced since before recorded history by both humans and animals doesn't make much sense.

Sorry if I appear rude but it seems like you just want to ban it because you don't like it.
