Okay, here is the thing, I apprectiate all you guys bringinf my attention to these these things of why horses are slaughtered. I have decided to leave this part out of my project. I have my own opinions and you have your opinons. I am aware of the recession that is going on, my family is being affectted by it. If you go back to before the recession horse slaughter was still happening. I think it is wrong when people jsut do it. I know you all are going to keept drilling it into my head. I am sixteen and I have read things and formed my opinion. THis is the last I am going to be talking about this. If any of you have stories of abuse of horses other than starving, I will be happy, well not really happy, but I would appreciate it if I could hear those stories instead of facts that I already do know. THank you so much.
The scholar in me has to type. No solid project of any kind is going to knowingly omit an entire segment of the issue. Not solid research, not a convincing argument. It is fallacious to put together what I'm assuming to be a project meant to illuminate and persuade others against equine abuse/slaughter, etc., using only the cons. Good scholarship will present the pros as well, and refute the pros logically.
It may be your opinion, and this I respect (although I do not agree), but it's a matter of sound research and scholarship to explore and engage the other side of the fence in your presentation.
