View Full Version : Looking for a good argument

02-26-05, 01:46 pm
In my english class we are writing argument essays. I have decide to write mine on why people should become vegetarians. Does anyone know of any really good web sites that have good strong points that I could use. I also need to look at the opposit side of the argument (the benifits of eating meat). Since you guys are vegetarians I thought maybe you would have some insite on some really good websites. Anything will help. Thanks!

Who gives us the right to make the decision to eat animals? How can we eat some animals but then pet animals? Some questions who can think about...

I think www.peta.org (http://www.peta.org) (is that the right URL?) has some good information
