Vegan Outreach Enewsletter  •  February 20, 2002


9 years and counting


Thanks to our son and your booklets, our entire family is now vegetarian, with two of us vegan (and the rest, it seems, headed that way). I sincerely appreciate the approach you advocate – the non-accusatory, non-hateful attitude. I don't think that trying to "brow-beat" people ever works.

I picked up a copy of Why Vegan at the Wild Oats natural food store in
West Hartford, CT yesterday. I had already been buying organic foods for my
family, but after reading the brochure, it brought me to tears and I decided
to make the attempt to "go vegan."

I think it is so great what you guys are doing. I got a Why Vegan? book at a Gold Finger and Good Charlotte show and it is so horrible, so my friends and I are going around our school and showing it to people and we have showed so many people how horrible it is.

Join Viva! to expose the horror behind holiday hams before Easter (which is on March 31)

Go Veggie with Sir Paul!

During the spring & summer of 2001, I investigated pig factory farms. What I saw will burn in my mind and heart forever – the boredom of the sows in the gestation crates and the piglets in the 'nursery,' all alone except for the flies that covered them. Then there was the pig who died as I was videotaping the filthy living conditions, and another whose leg was so badly injured he had to struggle to lie down.

I looked at these pigs as I videotaped them and promised them that the suffering they endured would not be in vain. And I would make sure I did what I could to expose their plight. We are trying to do that, but we need your help!

Honeybaked Ham locations, as well as regular grocery stores, will be busy with people buying their holiday dinners days before Easter. Let's get them to think about the animals they are eating. Even 2 friendly leafleters at each location can reach a lot of consumers.

Viva! will send you posters, and leaflets to hand out to the public about pigs on factory farms. Just send us an email at or a call at 530/759-8482 and give us your mailing address and let us know which city you are covering.

Honeybaked Ham has 300 stores located around the country. You can check here to find your state and nearest location. If you don't have a Honeybaked Ham near you, don't forget your local grocery store!

Honeybaked Horror makes their money off the suffering and death of these wonderful and intelligent creatures. Let's make sure the cries of these pigs are heard.

If you need inspiration watch the following videos:
Viva!'s "When Pigs Cry"
PeTA's Seaboard investigation

We always encourage people to have information on other animals killed for food on hand.

For the pigs,

Peter Singer on 60 Minutes II tonite

"Correspondent Dan Rather profiles Princeton University bioethics professor Peter Singer – a philosopher who has become famous - some would say infamous - for disputing that all life is equally precious. In fact, he says it may be ethical to kill handicapped babies... argues that the lives of animals are not inferior to the lives of humans... that most people choose their own enjoyment over the needs of starving children.


The Auction Block – An Undercover Investigation by CoK

While the abuses on factory farms and in slaughterhouses are gradually coming to the public's attention, the treatment of animals at livestock auctions remains relatively concealed. With the use of hidden cameras, COK's new undercover investigation is a glimpse into what is an often-overlooked stage in a farmed animal's life. Yet, it speaks volumes of their misery as well as our own humanity.
