Actually, if the eggs are not fertilized (grocery store eggs aren't), nothing in the egg is dying when you eat it. It's just like a female human having a period and shedding the eggs that weren't used--it would never be a baby without fertilization.

For me, five months into being vegetarian, I'm comfortable enough. I had discomfort about the eggs/dairy portion enough to stop buying milk (switched to soy and I love it) and cut way back on eggs, only buying organic free range, and only for when I cook with them (not very often). I don't buy milk or eggs in restaurants either. But I have not stopped purchasing items made with these ingredients. I guess we have to each come to the place where we are comfortable, and that could evolve--next year I may go vegan, who knows.
