I always considered the fact that if we didn't eat domestic cows or pigs then those animals would never have existed in the first place. They are entire populations which exist only because we intend to eat them eventually. So is it relevant that it is the very fact that they will be slaughtered and consumed that grants these animals some experience of life and a chance at it at all?

My solution to guilt free carnivory!
