Yes, meat is unethical Meat is dead animals. People say that we have a right to kill because evolution has decreed it. Well guess what? Among the last stages of evolution was moral evolution, which is what most people seem to forget. We do have a choice to kill or not to kill. Murder is wrong, and unethical. It can sometimes be justified, but justifying it does not make it ethical. If you are a starving child about to die, and watching their family and friends die, and to get dinner on your plate, then yes, murdering a chicken would be justifiable. But, everyone who's reading this right now has access to technology, which means that none of us are in that position. We are all killing by choice, and THAT, is unethical. There is nothing worse than torturing a living being, killing it, and ruining it's life for nothing more than your steak or bacon.
65% of the worlds grain produced today goes to livestock, who are then butchered and served to obese, unethical meat-eaters. Think about it. If all the efforts gone into killing animals were instead going to produce grain and food for starving people all over the world, wouldn't the world be so much more of a better place?
And, regarding the nutrients and health nonsense that the meat eaters are spouting, I'd recommend for anyone to go do some adequate research. The average vegetarian/vegan lives MUCH longer than the average meat-eater, and the American Dietetic association has passed a document recognizing that veganism is the healthiest choice in life. I don't get it. Eating meat is bad for you, bad for the environment, bad for the human race in general, and bad for the abused animals all over the world. Why do people do it?
"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, the whole world would become vegetarian."
