On Eating Meat

As humans gain an ever-increasing understanding of animals’ ability to [think, feel, and experience pain], many of us are asking whether eating meat is morally acceptable.

From Thoughts on the family dog and eating meat

Eating meat has really been weighing on me lately. I love meat, I don’t think I could ever slide into a vegetarian or vegan diet unless possibly by force. For me, it’s not so much that animals are cognitive beings and are aware of and feel pain, but more so that industrial agriculture is morally abhorrent. Participating in an industry that has such a huge disregard for animals, for the environment, for the communities they operate in, for the people that they employ doesn’t align with the kind of person I hope to be. It is in direct contradiction to my morals and ethics(fn).
