This image is a screenshot taken from Mercy For Animals’ Facebook page on June 23, 2016. Someone commented, “There is no reason to be cruel to any animal and or keep in horrible conditions.” Mercy For Animals replied, “We completely agree, Charles! Eating vegetarian and saving these animals is the way to go :)”.

KNOWING the violence inherent in “dairy products”…

KNOWING the blood spilled around the world every minute of every hour of every day for “dairy products”…

KNOWING the cries and pleas from “dairy” cows from the slaughterhouse…

KNOWING the suffering and killing from every animal use *not* addressed by “Eating vegetarian”…

KNOWING you could have promoted veganism and advocated for *justice* instead of a *diet*…

KNOWING it is 2016 when we know better…

How *could* you, Mercy For Animals?

I have run TAVS for 3 years, and I know full well our all-volunteer organization could have brought in much needed funds for our “Why veganism?” leaflets or our national vegan bus ad campaign if we promoted “Eating vegetarian” instead of veganism, but guess what–I have never done that, and I will never do that. How *could* I? How could I allow myself to sell animals’ rights for donations? I know many “cool” vegans have convinced themselves and others that compromised/sellout animal advocacy is more “effective.” They have made my (volunteer) job harder while raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars of donations. They have made my (volunteer) job harder while forming partnerships directly with animal exploiters.

For an animal advocacy organization to promote vegetarianism and sell the insidious lie that it is a “step in the right direction” is a violation of animal rights. We owe animals veganism and nothing less.
