The Vegans Unite Blog is a way to bring like minded people together, whether they are on their journey to becoming a vegan or have already reached their destination. The latter perhaps can be helpful in relating their knowledge and experiences that can help the vegetarians as they trod this road less traveled. Please feel free to join in any or all of the topics, to add your comments and suggestions, and to ask your own questions.

Someone found out today that I’m vegan, by Dana Green
Someone found out today that I’m vegan, and was very hostile and distant. They asked with a sneer, “Why are you vegan?” I replied, “I’m vegan for the female cows who are artificially inseminated, then have their babies taken away to their death. I’m vegan for the chickens who are debeaked and forced into small cages. I’m vegan for the cows who are beaten because they are too sick to walk themselves to their own slaughter. I’m vegan for the pigs who are slammed to pieces on the ground. I’m vegan for the male chicks who are tossed into a grinder alive. I’m vegan for the foxes who are skinned alive for fur. I’m vegan for the orcas who are stolen from their families and forced into ‘entertaining’ and abuse. I’m vegan for the bunnies who are tested on for make up. I’m vegan for the elephants in chains at the circus who are beaten to perform. Most importantly, I’m vegan because I reject slavery, cruelty, and murder.”
