Therefore I agree with your first statement Sandra. Whether it is turtles, foie gras, dairy cows, lamb's slaughtered it is all a part of the meat industry process and no one part of it is significantly different (or worse) than any other part.
To say that one form of animal exploitation is bad and focus on it solely; is to at least partially reinforce other types of animal exploitation as okay, for example campaigns against foie gras have consistently made meat eaters feel better about eating their "free range chicken" (or other supposed ethical meat).
The result is death displacement not lives saved.
The best form of activism will always be promoting veganism and making it more mainstream and accepted.
