Anna’s point of view
Anna has been a vegetarian for a year and a half. “It happened all of a sudden , she says. “I just couldn’t eat meat any more. It made me feel sick. I suddenly thought of it as eating an animal. I had a few meat meals during the first few weeks, but I felt so incredibly guilty and ashamed afterwards tat I soon stopped”.
When I told my Mum I wanted to be a vegetarian, she said, “No, no, no». But I talked to my dad and he said I could. Mum took me to the doctor who gave me advice, and I’ve felt fine ever since. I gave up meat because I think it’s wrong to kill animals. Chickens and turkeys are the worst – it’s as home animals. I eat eggs and cheese. Some vegetarian meals annoy me when they’re called vegetarian beef or something.
I feel so strongly about vegetarianism and I’m convinced it’s a healthy way of life.
I feel really proud because turning vegetarian is a big decision to make. You do feel so much better inside for doing it, though. To be honest, I don’t know how people can’t feel guilty while juicy steak.

d) She feels that being a vegetarian
a) when Ann gave up eating meat, and why;
b) what her parents said and did;
c) what kind of animals she thinks are worst to eat;
d) what kind of food she eats;
e) how she feels about being a vegetarian;
Laura’s point of view
“ A diet with meat in it is a lot healthier”, says Laura. “Vegetarians always look a bit skinny. And lots of them need to take vitamin tablets and things”.
I’ve never considered becoming a vegetarian. I love meat and I’ll eat any kind- except possibly rabbit. That’s because I see rabbits as pets, whereas a cow isn’t home to chop up and eat. I’d eat rabbit if it was already chopped up and came in a packet, but I don’t like seeing animals killed.
“ I think being a vegetarian is a half-hearted, to tell you the truth. A bit hypocritical. You should either be a complete vegan or a meat-eater. Lots of vegetarians wear leather and it seems to me as if they can’t make up their minds. They only stand I make is not to wear fur. I’d never wear a fur jacket because certain animals are killed for their fur and nothing else. If you kill a cow, you eat the meat and wear the skin. That’s OK because it’s natural for humans to eat meat. Animals kill animals and humans are animals – so they kill animals to stay alive. I don’t think about food that much. I just eat what my parents eat”.
