Ethics – Animal Cruelty

Animal Cruelty is cruelty to defenseless creatures of all kinds.

We have seen recently in online pics on Facebook how factory farmed animals are treated badly and women get into heated arguments if anyone has an opinion other then their own. They miss the point completely. They start name calling with untrue and rude accusations towards anyone who may inquire to the nature of the problem.

Ok so we believe animals are badly treated before and in the way they are slaughtered.

I have a few questions

1. If they were not bred and slaughtered for the meat eaters in society then how would they (the meat eaters) survive.

2. Do the people who complain eat meat?
3. Has the industry been deregulated so that cruelty to animals can go on without any control?
