Category : Uncategorized
Another short one. I promise the next will be longer!
Check out parts 1-3 here.
Argument: “LOL my cousin is a REAL vegan but she creeps me out so…one quick fact…CELLS make up living things…they breath oxygen…they eat food…and they feel anythig that is afflicted on them…so when you REALLY think about it…plants live to, and feel pain…SO WHEN YOU NEXT PICK UP A CARROT AND EAT IT JUST THINK …Your killing a live THING….”
Resources: Anyone who says something like this probably isn’t actually making a real argument–they’re just trying to annoy you. But if you feel like it, remind him or her that plants don’t have a central nervous system, something which is necessary when it comes to sensing pain. But if by some alternate method plants do feel pain, a vegan diet still kills far fewer plants than one with animal products.
