To the editor: The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could decide the fate of California's animal welfare law for eggs and meat sold in the state. In reality, there is no animal, bred for people to eat, that is raised in a 'humane' fashion. Breeding pigs, chickens cooped in impossibly small enclosures, cows that are inhumanely slaughtered — the end result is animal torture. There's a simple (healthy, ecologically-sound, humane) way to address these inhumane activities: Stop eating meat.
