      If the good Lord hadn't intended for us to eat the cows, he wouldn't have made them so damn tasty!!

    Several states in India have banned the slaughter of cows, and the sale of beef.

    As a vegan, I'm against the killing and eating of animals, but I'd prefer that people come to this choice on their own, without laws forcing them to give up meat. I don't believe eating beef should be outlawed, but I do believe many factory farming practices are cruel, and should be eliminated.

    And yes, Fat Freddy's Cat, you can have your cheeseburger. I would hope, at some point, you would come to realize that burger isn't good for your body, and that ingesting an animal who died in misery and filth is pretty gross, but I don't think outlawing that cheeseburger is the answer.

      I agree with you.
      Telling people what they can and cannot eat rips the heart out of freedom. Making something illegal also creates a "black market". Look what happened with Prohibition.

    Never!
    In India it is my understanding that Hindus believe cows are "sacred". In the U.S. both Jews and Muslims avoid eating pork. Nevertheless no one is trying to ban bacon, pork chops, sausage, or ham!
    You have the right to eat what (you) want. The majority of U.S. citizens will never stop eating burgers, steaks, roast beef, ribs, or hot dogs. "Beef. It's What's For Dinner" smile

    Why should beef be banned? Is it because cows are living things? So are plants, so is lettuce, so is everything that grows. Are we to stop eating? I took a summer class with a Hindu M.D. many summers ago. (Someone gave me the class for free) Anyway, Dr.Vassant recommended beef for those who have a Vata body type. He said beef makes them grounded. Apparently, the Vata type is closely related to the element of air...and air is not "grounded," however, beef makes them feel grounded and therefore less "anxious." The doctor is from India and he teaches Ayurveda, the science of life.
    More importantly, it really bugs me that consumers have to pay a small fortune for a small amount of beef. Obviously, the haters of beef manufacturers are doing their job well. That makes me sad. Nevertheless, this weekend I plan on eating some carne adovada. I will enjoy every expensive bite of it and I will give thanks..

      I would love to visit India, but without compromising on my beef steak :-)
      Besides banning it will make things worse, it will create an illegal market of beef trade don't you think?

    This is sad to know that they banned beef in India and Hindus and Muslims have been living together in India for years. It's weird that they thought of banning beef now? that means Muslims over there wouldn't be able to get beef because Hindus don't believe in eating beef ??
