Not sure I fully understand your post. That's true that everyone makes their own choices and that's a good thing. We need to think for ourselves and question things.

Unless a method comes up of only producing female animals or there is a place that will take large amounts of steers and roosters, egg and dairy production always involves the death of the newly hatched/born male animals.

I find eating eggs a more accepetable choice ethically then drinking milk.

For starters: while the production of dairy requires the continued death of male offspring, in egg production it is a one time event at the hatchery. Eggs are not chicken abortions unless the egg has been fertilized.

Under ideal circumstances, hens raised for egg production can lead long happy lives. They will keep laying eggs until they die of old age. Taking their eggs away doesn't harm them.

In contrast, dairy cows even in ideal conditions are harmed by the act of taking the milk because it involves ripping away a newborn calf to obtain that milk. This leads to the ongoing killing of the cow's offspring.
