Be a vegetarian to stop cruelty (From Worcester News)

I am a vegetarian (most of the time), but I do not feel that my choice makes me superior to others who choose to eat meat. However, I do feel that animals that are farmed and eaten for our benefit, should at least be treated humanely. It is vital that we remember that animals do feel pain – to assume they don’t is to kid ourselves. So, I’m not against eating meat (though I prefer not to) but I am against cruel practices that are often allowed in the pursuit of higher profits. …
