      Philosophic Vegetarianism: Acting Affirmatively for Peace
      by Karen Davis, United Poultry Concerns

      The plea for ethical veganism, which rejects the treatment of birds and other
      animals as a food source, is not rooted in arid adherence to diet or dogma, but
      in the desire to eliminate the kinds of experiences that using animals for food
      confers upon beings with feelings. Historically, ethical vegetarianism has
      rejected the eating of an animal's muscle tissue, or "meat," as this requires
      killing an animal specifically for the purpose of consumption. The ethical
      vegetarian regards killing an unoffending creature simply to please one's palate
      and conform to society with revulsion and likewise disdains premeditating the
      premature death of an animal. Thus, Plutarch mourned that "But for the sake of
      some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of
      that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy."
