Is this a question or a statement? Of course its my view!
The natural order of things doesnt come in to play when humans are involved. thats why we have laws. Its natural for males to inseminate females with sperm. However there are laws to protect the vulnerable in society so that your granny isnt humped on the way home from the bingo. And so, my point about eating sentient creatures. It might be natural to eat, but is it right? There are other choices that avoid killing, farming, skinning, wearing animals that respects their
right to life. Is factory farming natural?
Conscious vegetables? Hardly. They have no central nervous system, they are evolved in such a manner that they can be consumed and deposited as their seeds in dung to populate again. They are not the type of thing that is conscious or ever could be. Straw man; nice try.
