Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Chickens Suffer Unimaginably

Birds are sentient beings; therefore, they are able to feel pain and fear. However, in spite of this scientific fact, poultry in the US suffer unimaginable pain and fear when slaughtered because the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) exempts poultry from being protected under the "Humane Slaughter Act". In fact, many of these birds end being boiled alive.

Please visit USDA: Time to Stop the Chicken Industry from Boiling Birds Alive 

The way chickens are raised and killed for food in the U.S. and the rest of the world is nothing short of a tragedy. We cannot possibly be living according to our Faith and values when we support an industry that doesn’t care about animals at all. 

If we want to live out our compassion, mercy and love we need to include all beings in our sphere of compassion, doing our best not to harm them unnecessarily. This is the core of being good stewards of God’s Creation.
