Celebrity actress Danniella Monet, best known for her role in Victorious, compares her pregnancy and future motherhood with dairy cows‘ in a heartbreaking video.
Titled ‘The HARDEST PART about my pregnancy’, Monet watches videos of dairy farms exposés – including the ‘horrific abuse’ that was recently uncovered at Fair Oaks Farm.
“I don’t think its fair for me to just have this pregnancy and feel the way that I feel about my experience. I almost want to be transported in their world so that I can fight harder for them,” she says.
Watching the footage, the star, who regularly promotes veganism on Instagram to her 3.2 million followers, asks: “How can anyone allow for this to happen?”
‘Glory and praise’
Monet continues: “I don’t know how many people out there really understand what is going on and how polarizing a mother cow’s experience through pregnancy is compared to human beings. And to be pregnant and to be in my body, and feeling the way I feel, and to be getting so much glory and praise, you know? There’s just an excitement about it that a mother cow will never feel and understand within these terms of the dairy industry.
“When I think of a mother cow and her baby I think of the relationship they don’t have, and I think about the nine months they spend trying to connect to this baby that they’re growing and nourishing… to have it just taken away from them.”
