Mercy For Animals (MFA) has launched a month-long pro-vegetarian bus ad campaign in Boston.

The ads feature cute baby animals and read, "Why love one but eat the other? Choose Compassion. Choose Vegetarian. Pigs, cows, and chickens experience pain, suffering, frustration, pleasure, and joy just like our beloved dogs and cats. Yet, to produce burgers, nuggets, omelets, and hot dogs, billions of farm animals are subjected to extreme confinement, painful mutilations, violent handling, and merciless slaughter. Please widen your circle of compassion to include all animals by leaving meat off your plate."

MFA estimates that the campaign will draw over 25 million views while running on 70 bus exteriors and 300 bus interiors in Beantown.

Mercy For Animals is a non-profit animal advocacy organization headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York City, Asheville, and Columbus. Last year the group released a shocking hidden camera video exposing a hidden horror that occurs every day at the nation's largest egg producing facility. The MFA accepts charitable contributions to help with the cost of pro-vegetarian ad campaigns. Source

Makes perfect sense to me. I've always had a dog or cat(s) and considered myself an animal lover - but not until I became a conscientious objector (vegan) did I really exercise loving animals. Now I drive by cows in a field and feel much better because I know I am not a threat to them.

This is the same question I ask my mom or sister like everyday. They say they are against cruelty and love animlas yet they eat animals even after I have shown them videos of what the animals go through to be raised and turned into meat.
