Irreplaceable Pleasures

Ever thought of the greatest opportunities to live our values and yet betray them with

the lies in the food that we put on our plates.How many people today take advantage of the smallest

things, but don’t see the big impact on it. Did you ever question your self what types of food are you

eating, or where it comes from. How most things about our food is kept behind closed gates and labels

upon labels telling you what’s good and what’s not. People don’t know that organic and inorganic

and nothing but why to make profit. Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer is a book that will take a

toll upon what you eat and will change your perspective on what you comuse. Foer does not only talk

about the food you eat but the inhumane conditions in factory farms and unimaginable facts that will

shock you. PETA and HSUS are known as the largest animal rights organizations in the world. They

both focus on fighting for the protection of all animals through advocacy, education, cruelty

investigations, research and animal rescue. They seek a humane and sustainable world for all animals.

Even though both fight for the same cause they also do some things different for instance, PETA

promotes a healthy vegan diet and show how to be cruelty free. They also protest, loudly and publicly

against cruelty towards all animals, and expose what really goes on behind factory farms, and animal

laboratories. HSUS has a different approach to saving their animals. They want to reduce suffering and

create social change for animals. They provide care for animals and are an disaster relief agency. The

organization also provides care at sanctuaries, rescue facilities and, wildlife rehabilitation centers.

The two most well known animal rights organizations PETA and HSUS, have a huge impact on

the lives of animals every day. They not only tell you how to change a life of a helpless animal but go

animals are being put through. Known as an heavenly escape for vegetarians and animals, PETA and

HSUS focus on fighting for the protection of all animals in factory farms and make sure that not another

animal has to suffer. As Foer states “ What is suffering? I’m not sure what it is, but I know that suffering

is the name we give to the origin of all the sighs, screams, and groans…” (Foer 77). This doesn’t only

go for the cruelty of animals suffering but, that their are people that want to help and change the ways

farmers kill their animals and decrease the population for humans. Condensing that not only are all farm

animals being abused and no precaution is being taken to the inhumane slaughtering of the animals, the

organization seek a humane and sustainable world for all animals. Animals should be treated with care

and respect like any human would be. Farm animals every day are skinned alive and beat to death

because people can't live without eating meat. People have to realize sooner or later that these animals

have hearts too, they breath the same air we do, eat plants that we do, and yet why treat them any

different. What if life was the other way around. Humans would be the victims of the suffering that

farmers are putting these animals through. There are people and organizations that want to stand by and

let this go without putting a stop to the cruelty of the farm animals. The animals are not alone and will have support from people that want to make a difference not only for well-being but the being of our


Even though both organizations have the same view upon how animals should be treated, and

cared for, they both have different ways to do it. PETA also known as “ People for the Ethical

Treatment of Animals” want to promote a
