Ever since finding out that momma birds puke into their baby chicks’ mouths to feed them, I have recognized the kind of dedication involved in being a mom.

Check out all these awesome ways to show love for ALL moms out there this Mother’s Day:

After being repeatedly raped and impregnated, mother cows in the dairy industry have their babies torn away from them to be turned into veal. 🙁 Share our video on your Facebook wall and Twitter feed to let your friends and family know that ALL moms should have the right to be with their children.
