Slaughterhouses are evil places where animals are bred to be tortured slaughtered processed and then eaten...why has every one been duped into believing they are acceptable and that we need them?

In that grand scheme of things, the venture of alternatives to slaughter houses will usually end up in far more painful and enduring methods of killing animals for meat.

If meat were made illegal, it would be inevitable that a huge black market for it would open, one in which very low-funded criminal facilities would be used to raise and slaughter the animals in the most economically viable way possible. As least standardised slaughter houses must pass safety tests as well as compete for certification as the best slaughter house in the region or something along those lines.

They are a very good way of ensuring humane killings of animals, humane meaning relative to the alternative of not have any of them.

The elimination of slaughterhouses will need to be a gradual process for people to adapt,meat eaters are addicted to meat,they dont want to give it up and see no reason to because they believe that animals are here on this earth for their benefit....if animals could fight back and it put people at risk of being killed by them, i doubt they would want to kill and eat them..the very fact that they dont is why cruelty and abuse is inflicted on them,to me that says the people who do this are very weak and need the power over an animal for them to feel any strength,its one of many flaws which humans have!

You are definitely entitled to think that eating meat should be criminalised, just as much as a meat eater has a right to think that to ban slaughter houses would be going against his right to farm animals who are barely conscious on the level that humans are.

The basis of your entire argument is the premise that eating meat is inherently immoral and unforgivable. No justification of this assumption has been supplied other than the fact that we'd hate if another species dominated, and ate, us. This is irrelevant since there is absolutely no evidence that any farm animal can realise what they really are or where they are ranked in the food-web of the world. they don't care that they are an inferior species to us, their only mental concerns appear to be directly related to basic bodily functions.
