Factory Farms: Basically Playpens for Animals
Kiley Stinson, an intern for an agriculture site, recently blogged about picking up a vegetarian/vegan starter kit from one of PETA’s stands in D.C. Here’s her confounding attempt to defend factory farms:
“If animal rights activists are so appalled to the idea of young animals being kept in a pen, were they not one of the millions of kids whose parents used playpens when they were growing up? Play pens protect children from wandering off away from their parents, and provides (sic) a safe place to nap, play or snack. Hmm… sounds similar (sic) to how farmers keep their animals safe and happy.”
Here’s a glimpse of animals in their “playpens.”
If that’s the best argument factory-farm advocates have, no wonder we’re winning!
