“There’s a reason you take kids to pick apples, but don’t take them to a slaughterhouse”

“There’s a reason you take kids to pick apples, but don’t take them to a slaughterhouse” is a vegan saying that has been printed on many images. Origin of the saying is uncertain.

Apple picking in fall, strawberry picking in summer. Wonder why nobody wants to take a wholesome family trip to the slaughterhouse? Hmm…

Pigs Injured in Pork Truck Accident Slaughtered, Thrown in Garbage Despite Offers for Sanctuary

Despite society’s love for all things bacon, most meat eaters shy away from actually seeing how pigs become pork. As the saying goes: “There’s a reason you take your children to pick apples but don’t take them to a slaughterhouse.”
