Earthlings

I am going to buy Earthlings off Amazon and a few other movies (That I will for sure talk about after watching), but here is the preview for Earthlings (This preview is very mild, nothing graphic):





You can watch this whole video easily on youtube for free, but you will need a box of tissues... If you ever wondered why people go vegan this film will easily show you why.

I didn't give up meat, dairy, and animal byproducts because they tasted bad, I gave them up because they are unnecessary for my survival and they cause an insane amount of suffering.

Killing animals for food is unnecessary, it inflicts pain on living beings, and is therefor cruel. As discussed on VegWeb, there is no way to humanely slaughter an animal. Animals "Humanely raised" for food still end up at the same horrible slaughterhouse... Think about it, give it up already.

Beautiful post. Simple and straight to the point.

I never made it past the first 5 minutes of Earthlings, I just couldn't do it. I had already gone vegan by the time I watched it, but if I hadn't, those first five minutes alone would have done the trick. It is an important movie that everyone should see.

thanks for the post to the link of the video..such an important thing that a lot of people should see! I think it's great for your reasoning of being vegan, same with me. We don't need the dairy and meat to live..so why ruin the lives of animals for it?? :)

To tell you the truth, I will be sobbing through this entire movie! I haven't even gotten to part 3 on youtube! I am going to force myself to watch it, most likely alone the first time... I feel when trying to spread the message behind veganism movies like this really have the power to persuade people... Most people, I find, are too lazy to even read a book. Getting someone to watch a movie is much easier.
