I'm just encouraging those Vegetarians and Vegans that are or might be Pro-Life Nonbelievers to check out our group. Come and visit us! Pro-Life Nonbelievers is a great group!

Chris Start a thread and see if they know what they are talking about. Sentience doesn't in itself give a right or to life; most contempory rights philosophers argue to have a right to life requires a desire for continue life, and only cogntively sophisticated persons have that.

I agree Kate. I am also vegan and pro-choice. I don't see these issues contradicting each other at all.
Comment by K on October 17, 2009 at 7:36pm
I believe that each person has decisions to make throughout life and is allowed to make the choices that fits their values, lifestyle and circumstances.
Thus, my pro choice decision has nothing to do with my vegan choice. Someone isn't automatically anti-choice just because they are vegan....that's how it works, and I do exist. ;o)

Being a vegetarian protects you from cancer, claim scientists in a wide-ranging study which found cutting out meat can reduce the risk of some types of the disease by half.

That bunny stuff makes me want to barf all over the place.

Just a shout out to the Pro-Life vegetarians and vegans. Please come check out and join the Pro-Life Nonbelievers group. Also, if you are a Pro-Choice vegetarian or vegan, I don't know how that works, but if you exist, come check out our group as well.

I've been a vegetarian since March. I thought it would be hard to stop eating meat, but it was a smooth transition :). Glad to see some recipes posted here, I'm not much of a cook.

...and some would very easily revert to mob violence and gruesomeness given the right circumstances (e.g. the Holocaust).

I wonder if you're right Alex. Maybe they used Smokin' Moses BBQ sauce...

Thanks for the links, Daniel. I knew there was human sacrifice performed in the Americas, but didn't know the details. Pretty gruesome practices. The more I find out about religion and history, the more sounds like humans all over the planet were pretty violent and messed up until fairly recently (and some still have a way to go...).

Actually, the meso-Americans went one further, so mto speak. They 'harvested' humans by engaging war on outlying provinces, and brought them back for sacrifice and barbecue (here).

It's horrible, but apparently witch burning and similar rituals in the west were. per capita, comparable in terms of humans killed for religious purposes (from the book "1491 if I remember correctly")
