Why Nobody Should Eat Turkeys

Turkeys are amazing creatures with rich emotional lives. They suffer tremendously when raised for food and their suffering goes mostly unnoticed. These are 12 reasons to help people understand why turkeys should not be part of the menu:
1) Newborn turkeys search and call for their mothers, and never get to be with them
2) Turkeys love to be petted
3) Turkeys form deep friendships and emotional bonds
4) Turkeys are sexually molested and abused
5) Young turkeys are brutally mutilated without painkiller
6) Life on factory farms (including many “free range” farms) is living hell
7) Domestic turkeys still share much in common with wild turkeys
8) Turkeys suffer horribly during transport and slaughter
9) Nearly 1 million turkeys and chickens “accidentally” boiled alive every year in U.S.
10) “Humane” Turkey Slaughter Isn’t Humane
11) Compassion toward all animals doesn’t have to be taught; it is only untaught. Which lesson are you teaching your kids this Thanksgiving?
12) Delicious Plant-Based Turkey Alternatives Abound

Thanksgiving is the reason why the massacre of turkeys takes place. Taste and tradition, not compassion and mercy reign over Thanksgiving meals. There should be no turkeys, or any other of God’s animals, on the dinner menu; especially in a Christian household where our faith calls us to show compassion and kindness to all creatures.
