These are two articulate and powerful messages from two women with influence. One cares about animals with empathy and compassion, and chooses to rescue them rather than eat them. The other calls herself an animal lover, but eats all of them and collects only perfect specimens as pets. She does, however, a great deal to promote the humane treatment of farm animals in America's food supply and encourages her fans to support local, sustainable, organic farms. The days of not knowing where your food comes from and how it was treated before it arrived on your plate are over for any forward thinking person of the twenty first century. If you cannot answer the question "what kind of life did this cow or pig or sheep or chicken have before it became your meal?" then it probably came from a factory farm.
