Why It’s Unethical To Eat Animals

"In any discussion concerning the ethics of eating animals, it’s important to begin by considering a frequently overlooked distinction: that harming and killing animals from necessity is not morally equivalent to harming and killing animals for pleasure. Just as shooting someone in self-defense is not commensurate with shooting someone to satisfy a sadistic urge— killing animals for food when we have no other choice for survival is not morally equivalent to killing animals when we have plentiful alternatives. Violence committed to save a life is never analogous to violence committed for pleasure or profit.”
