This ritual makes no sense and lacks compassion. Turkeys have done nothing needing pardon, nor deserving death. "Pardoning" one turkey while condoning the slaughter of millions of others for a holiday feast is an outdated, cruel ritual, now that we know what we do about factory farms. Ask the president to pardon all turkeys and have a plant-based Thanksgiving feast at the White House instead!
