    I am a meat eater. I have no qualms about admitting that I enjoy meat. I've gone stretches of days without meat, and miss it when I do. Obviously, people can live a healthy life as vegetarians.

Nothing you say here sheds light on the moral status of eating meat. I can honestly say all those sentences myself, and I believe most meat consumption in the United States is morally objectionable.

    I own some clothes made in sweatshops. I have no qualms about admitting that I enjoy wearing all my clothes. I've gone stretches of days without wearing sweatshop clothes, and I miss those articles. Obviously, people can live a healthy life without owning sweatshop clothes.

Do you believe eating meat is ethically justifiable in most cases?
