This button is most likely in support of vegetarianism on moral grounds. Many object to eating meat out of respect for sentient life. Some people follow vegetarian diets not because of moral concerns involving the raising or consumption of animals in general, but because of concerns about the specific treatment and practices involved in the raising and slaughter of animals, i.e. factory farming and the industrialization of animal slaughter. In the early 1990s, the American Dietetic Association published a position paper endorsing vegetarian diets, and support for vegetarian diets stared to be seen throughout the medical community.
