Poultry slaughter

Good news for people who care about animals, in this case poultry. A U.S. district court ruled last week that members of the U.S. chapter of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) can sue the federal government over the way chickens and turkeys are slaughtered. Jonathan Lovvorn, vice president with the Humane Society of the United States, stated that "The fundamental issue in the case is the fact that such a large amount of the animals we consume for food are not provided federal protection during the slaughter process." Plaintiffs argued that the method to slaughter poultry is not only cruel (paralyzes birds but doesn’t rendered them unconscious) but unsafe for consumption due to the risk of birds inhaling contaminated water with feces, dirt and dust.

Animals raised for food are not only unprotected by the law during the slaughter process, but from the moment they are born since the “laws” that are supposed to protect them are either non-existent or rarely enforced. This shameful fact should prompt people to boycott these industries who indiscriminately exploit animals for the sole pleasure of taste; given that, for the majority of people in the US, animal products are not needed for survival. In fact, Christian vegetarians are a great example of how we can thrive on a plant-based diet.
