A day full of cards, flowers, cupcakes, and chocolate … a mom’s dream, right? Unfortunately, some moms have more basic dreams on Mother’s Day—like to have the chance to spend any time with their babies, to be free, and not to have their babies slaughtered.
Calves in the dairy industry are torn away from their mothers shortly after they’re born—leaving both mom and baby traumatized. Why? So farmers can steal the mom’s milk and sell it in a grocery store near you.
This Mother’s Day, share the cute photo below and tell your friends why they should think of all moms this holiday and ditch dairy products.
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
