I was raised on a farm. My parents, two women and one man, raised me to believe that when a horse had a broken leg, we would put it down. My pet cow was put down when I was 12 years old because of a broken front leg. I loved that cow, but it destroyed my heart. I became cold. I am now a doctor, and believe that the practice of putting down teens with broken limbs should become prominent. Please debate, please don't hate. Thank you.

personally, I believe that your statement is absurd, and I am definite that you are not a real doctor. first of all, the parents of the kid would never agree to it, as they love their child, broken limbs and all. second, arms and legs heal fairly quickly, in almost 6-10 WEEKS, which is something a doctor would know. killing the kid would be like destroying your house when you spill something on the carpet. you would take 75 years of his life, because he broke something he could live without, but wont have to, because it will heal in an infinitesimal amount of time. Most of all, what confuses me is I see no benefit in your suggested practice, and am wondering, first and foremost, why you would promote it.

this debate is about health concerns not about my legitimacy as a doctor. i have my doctorate. in 6-10 wks a lot of work can be done on a farm. u can miss a whole harvest it is not worth the thousands of millions of dollars it will cost to mend a broken bone. thank u for ur willingness to debate this topic. many ppl have laughed or have not taken the time to hear
me out.

ok, so you are saying that teen animals, or teen humans should be put down. im confused about your message. if a cow has a broken leg on a farm, then it is the farmers choice to kill it.

woah woah woah wtf..HUMANS? No no no. Im not even sure how you mixed that up. Teens are young pigs, many people are not willing to put down these pigs because of the meat they can produce while older. These pigs should be put down as they take up much room in pens. It also costs a lot of money to heal these pigs. It is not worth the money to heal these pigs in my opinion.

oh.... I thought you meant humans.... geez....ok, in that case I would say that it should be the choice of the farmer, because its not the institutions choice to decide
