"You don’t realize that for a cow to make milk, she has to be pregnant... And then within 24 hours of birth, we steal her kid away from her so we can steal that milk. And then we’ll put her in that same cycle of oppression, sometimes up to seven or eight times in her life, until she’s absolutely spent, and she can’t have a kid anymore — and then we slaughter her. It is so incredibly cruel, and for a big part of my life, that fact was lost on me. And now that I know that, I’m making up for lost time." - @tonykanal, with daughter Saffron who along with her sister Coco have been #vegan since birth.
