Thanks... I was actually dabbling with veg*nsim at Thanksgiving, so I didn't partake then.
I don't think my hubby will switch. He has the VERY misguided perception that because animals are born into those conditions, they don't know any better.
We have actually had 2 very heated arguments on the subject.
I guess I have a different perception because I grew up on a farm. Though my family raised hogs that were eventually sold, I know how those animals were treated. They had a HUGE area to roam and lots of mud to roll around in. I know they met a bad end, but at least their lives were good up until then, not confined and neglected.
Heck, my dad kep 3 of them as pets, he couldn't part with them.
