As a vegan, I avoid supporting any industry that uses slave labor. It does not matter to me whether the slave walks on two feet or four, has hair or fur, has dark skin or light, is male or female, is young or old, etcetera, etc.
What does matter to me, is if the slave is sentient. That’s all that should matter to anyone who stands against slavery. Because, slavery is wrong. It hurts, it kills, and it cannot ever be made right. It can only be abolished.
As an abolitionist, I educate the public about the horrors of slavery and how we all need to do our part to end it. I feel that part is twofold—stop funding it and inspire others to do the same. Sure, there will be those who continue to support slavery. That is out of our hands. All we can do is change ourselves, educate the masses, and be living examples of what it means to be vegan abolitionists.
Think, then Go Vegan!
