Welcome & Thank You...

...for visiting the Blog of the Nonviolent Choice Directory.

We feature commentary but most of all action alerts on the same positive, abortion-reducing measures we cover in the Directory.

These measures include post abortion healing; male responsibility; comprehensive sexual/reproductive health education; all voluntary pregnancy prevention methods, plus rape and incest prevention & treatment; and life-affirming ways to get through crisis pregnancy and beyond.

Along with responding to our current action alerts, and participating in our Blog, you are welcome to volunteer with us.

Another Reason to Go Veg

Daily Grist reports that the current epidemic/prospective pandemic of swine flu could be the direct result of industrial meat production. The US company Smithfield runs giant hog farms in Mexico, including some in the area where the infections in humans apparently began.

This isn't surprising. The pigs are crammed together in such a way that rampant diseases are pretty much inevitable. Same way that the global trafficking in poultry animals is implicated in outbreaks of avian flu.

One more reason, of many, to go veg: to refuse complicity in creating misery and death for so many sentient beings, human and other-than-human.

If you are thinking about going veg and aren't sure where and how to get started, please visit the Vegetarian Resource Group and GoVeg.com.

I couldn't agree more with you and am always disappointed 'going veg' isn't suggested more often. Mad cow, bird flu and now swine flu, when will people wake up?
