As activists, we know that animal use industries disproportionately exploit the bodies of female animals, forcing them to go through cycle after cycle of pregnancy, birth, sometimes a brief period of nursing their young, then separation so that their babies can be raised for meat, fur, or sold as pets, or, in the case of the dairy industry, simply so that the mothers' milk can be collected for human consumption.

We know this, and we know how strong a message it is. The grief mothers feel at having their babies taken from them resonates with everyone, including those not familiar with animal issues. Help people make the connection - the world is listening, and learning. Keep telling the stories of the mothers who lose their babies to these industries. By sharing the grief of the mothers who have already suffered this loss, we can help stop future generations of animals from suffering this pain and exploitation.

    πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’” A mothers love. It’s terrible. We drink and eat their sadness and heartache which is also horrible as well. We’re all beings of energy. @melanieeleanor @productivegents

    The industry so good it what it does that people will continue to eat and drink things that are proven bad for us. Until they die of cancer. It’s almost like waking up from a coma when you let the truth in and take responsibility for what you’ve allowed around you your whole life. It’s a hard to wrap your head around how pretty they make murder look and how hard they work to make dead bodies still good long enough to poison us. Each of those dairy farms has a woman who’s likely given birth her self and stomachs ripping babies away even takes selfies with those children captioning how much she loves her cows. I will never understand

    My daughter is going to vet school in Madison, Wisconsin. I’m visiting her now to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving. As you know Wisconsin is HUGE on the dairy industry. Whenever I get the chance I’m the voice for the dairy cows. Thank you Jo-Anne. πŸ’•
