Behind every glass of dairy-based milk, bite of cheese or scoop of ice cream is loss, grief, cruelty, violence and suffering. It cannot be bypassed. Udders do not produce milk on their own: there is always a baby removed from the picture. Mothers are forcibly impregnated and their babies are stolen from them, creating an irreparable, permanent loss. The mothers are continually re-impregnated until they produce less and then they are turned into cheap meat; their babies follow their same fate if female. The males are usually either killed at birth or directed to the veal market.
There has never been an easier or better time to withdraw your support of this cruel industry. There are plant-based versions of everything that do not require violence and brutality.
