Faulty Arguments Against Veganism, part 3

Check out parts 1 and 2 here.
Argument: “Bunnies and mice are accidentally slaughtered by the billions each year during mechanized harvesting of wheat and vegetables. Animals are dying either way. Eat what you like and don’t feel guilty about it.”
Response: If I’m driving my car and a squirrel jumps into the road, should I steer towards it? After all, I’m probably going to accidentally kill at a couple of animals in a lifetime of driving–does that mean I shouldn’t try to reduce the amount of harm I do?
And anyway, as I said in the first response, a vegan diet actually requires fewer plants–and therefore results in fewer dead “bunnies and mice” than a meat-eating one anyway!
