The Importance Of Killing Animals For Food
Another debatable topic is over whether killing animals should be against the law. Again, in my eyes, no.

It could even have been a plant, but Ted is right, because that plant had to die for someone to eat it. He always mentions vegetarians. He says for the people that say they eat tofu “the soy field your tofu came from supported a whole ecosystem of mice and rabbits and hawks and insects. And when they cit it down, they killed every one of those critters”
