    I raised a pig last year, didn't do anything to it I wouldn't have done to or eaten myself. Well, with the exception of putting a bullet in it's head. Anyway, I decided if I couldn't buy a baby, raise it up, treat it well and slaughter it myself I had no right eating pork. I felt like I needed to earn that right instead of just walking into a store and buying whatever all neat like in a package.

    It turns out I had no troubles what so ever with any of that so I eat pork with a clear conscious now.

    It's not something I wanna do again really but it also isn't something I would avoid. If I had a bigger family and enough wasted food to feed a pig I would keep one for that reason all the time.

    I would recommend eating kosher meat if your want your animals slaughtered humanely, but you won't find kosher pork anywhere.

    I already abstain from pork for health reasons.

    Oh plz, more estranged maxims from the alienated pseudo-moral vegan impulse .......

    Tell me, those of you planning on dying someday - are you going to care when something consumes you, be it an animal, a crematory fire, a slury of worms or a colony of bacteria? Are you going to put up some big fuss as YOUR biomaterial gets renewed and reused?

    You're damn right if you say you won't care, and a pig doesn't give 2 shits what you do with his body after you kill the poor bastard.

    The whole moral problem is about their suffering as another legitimate lifeform, not the fact you eat their meat.


    That being said, more pig for me the more that abstain, so keep that pig chow up, so i can chow down more pig.

    This is true, but if you buy from small local farms (try your farmer's market) you can be sure the pigs are treated much more humanely than those in a factory farm.

    I like ham and bacon too much. No thanks.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Funny. I didn't end up abstaining then. But I do now for religious reasons. And it's been pretty easy, save for the times when I want a bacon cheeseburger.

    If I don't balance my diet with fruit and vegetables. Then my stomach is going to give me the finger. As much as I love meat, I need to listen to that bastard.

    The thing is, abstaining from eating pork will do nothing to improve the plight of factory farmed pigs. They will still be raised in cages and walked into an abattoir. No matter how many people abstain there will still be demand for factory farmed pigs. So what are we assuaging with abstinence?Just our own sense of guilt? Nice for us but means nothing to pigs.

    Yes. But. One person can change his or her small little corner of the world.
