Where is the line drawn?

I am as vegan as I am currently capable of being.

We all draw our lines somewhere. I draw my line as a practical matter. My line is currently at easily avoidable animal product uses like food, clothing, cosmetics. When my society or health place a tremendous burden on animal product avoidance, I become an imperfect vegan.

I don't eat or wear animals.
But when it comes to medicines, I generally go along with the rest of society. I do that for a number of reasons, not all of which I can explain easily here.

That said, I am frustrated by Americans' current medical choices. I want more alternatives and I want more knowledgeable doctors who reach for the prescription pad less often.

We all draw lines. For most meat-eaters, their line is between pets and farm animals (horses vs cows; dogs vs. pigs). Or, their line is between human animals and all other animals. Or their line is between "intelligent" animals and "stupid" animals.
