Why? Is ending the life of a plant (which happens frequently with many plants that are eaten) any less atrocious than ending the life of an animal?

Why send it off and relabel it I'd buy a horse steak.
Ever since I ate that goat, I've been determined to try every animal in the world.
None of my friends will go mountain climbing with me in the winter,I don't know why?

You must be the last man on the deal team. A slaughterhouse for horses was reopened in Missouri last year. These animals (the dumbest I have ever seen other than those who own them) have been turned loose in the midwest because the horse "lovers" you refer to cannot afford to feed them. We have a horsebuyer here in Iowa who buys these animals for a few hundred bucks and hauls them to the slaughterhouse in Missouri.
If you check the menu in Japan, you will find that the Japanese is the largest importer of American Horse Meat, there it is considered a delicacy. How do I know, my son works for NTT and travels to Japan frequently, and when he takes friends out, it is on the menu.
Now if we can just get someone to slaughter Emu's which were turned lose in North Missouri. John

Well let's see.....
Blood, body fluids, feces, tumors, disease that can pass to humans hormones and drugs, the need to be sure and cook to a certain temperature. The gore and pain and disgust of everyone at the slaughter and process the feeling that you are holding a human child when you prep a turkey to bake, feels just like when you bath the baby...
Verses, glowing bright fruit and wonderful nuts and olives, coconuts from a tree. Green veggies and bloodless feces-less body fluid-less tubers...
Your right I see no difference.
The lack of the face is an emotional statement, not a logical one.

humans have the ability to think beyond our primal desires. some plants have to die when you eat them (not all), but they're not aware in the same way an animal is.
even if you disagree with all of the above and don't care about the suffering of animals, ending world hunger is a good enough moral reason to switch.
