People always accuse vegans of caring more about animals than people, but I don't know a single meat eater who would boycott meat to protest this and to save other human lives. The COVID-19 slaughterhouse crisis! These animal killing factories are now hotbeds of coronavirus infections in the U.S., leaving many workers ill, while others have died. Meat plants have been voluntarily closing, sparking fears of a national meat shortage. The president of the U.S. issued an emergency order to force the slaughter houses to remain open despite their widespread virus outbreaks. So slaughter houses are essential! Meat is essential?
