If you're a vegan would you eat this? If not why not?

This is very sad.

A far better thing to do would be to become a donor of expressed breast milk to one of the many Milk Banks in the United Kingdom, so that babies of mothers who cannot produce enough milk will be able to have the best food available.

Leaving aside ( for now) commercialisation issues...what for example if product was free ? And the milk superfluous ?

I really need to get out samsara, now.

Another stir/churn from 2003, this time in China-

The exploitation of peasants in that case lends new meaning to being milked.

I have to retract my support.
I did not read the article but misunderstood that the Ice-cream is one of the new breeds from Trader Joes and Whole foods market.
I have just read the entire article.
I don't eat any dessert but even if I eat Ice-cream or dessert, I would not touch it.

I wouldn't eat it. I still view this as exploiting an animal and I am against that (just my opinion). Besides, I am not a big fan of ice-cream anyways.

I totally agree with Chris. This is very sad.

Definitely not. I am mostly vegan and would not eat this.

It's not that vegans are opposed to just cow milk, but rather to all milk, from any animal, which includes humans. Vegans support nursing for infants, but feel it is not necessary for any animal over the age of about 1 to 2. Humans are the only species that still consumes milk and milk products beyond the age of 1.

My avoidance of milk and milk products has more to do with nutrition than with any Dhamma teachings, although I am sure some dairy cows are mistreated, but not all.

In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Gee that turned me off my morning fruit and yogurt.....but aren't vegans vegans because they only eat fruit and vegetables? All the vegans I've ever known wouldn't touch dairy in a pink fit...much less human dairy products...I'm going to be trying to get those images out of my head all day....
