Con

This argument will focus on the immoral slaughter of billions of sentient beings (the animal industry), and why we cannot label ourselves as 'lovers of animals' if we support this industry be consuming animal products. It will also focus upon veganism, and why it is the only morally sound diet to follow, criticizing other diets and the ethical wrong-doings of any of those who refuse to follow such a diet out of principle.

Nah, your grammar wasn't too bad. Unfortunately, with the way industries are structured, all of them rely on slave labor, that is an undeniable truth. I should have stated this, but Veganism aims to reduce suffering as much as possible, it is impossible to live a lifestyle entirely free of suffering, that isn't the fault of vegans, merely with the way the world works, and has worked for centuries.

Veganism would be fine if the methods of farming and such weren't also built upon the foundation of sweatshop styled labour with underpaid and very horrific working conditions for fruit pickers who are often brought into the industry against their wills. Thus Veganism is morally perfect when it comes to the views of "animals" such as cows, pigs etc. However it is wrong for "animals" such as Humans who slave away. Until you can fix the human labour issue of suffering and innocent workers working unbelievable hours to plant, grow and pick fruit and vegetables all for a horrible pay rate.

Wow my grammar in that comment is horrendous.
