Is she still a vegetarian?

my friend says shes vegetarian, but she eats mollusk like clams, scallop, oysters and stuff. she doesn't eat fish, no animals, no insect, no birds but eat eggs and milk. she became vegetarian for religious reason. she's a Buddhist she claims shes a vegetarians because mollusk are not animals. (at least... show more my friend says shes vegetarian, but she eats mollusk like clams, scallop, oysters and stuff. she doesn't eat fish, no animals, no insect, no birds but eat eggs and milk.

she became vegetarian for religious reason. she's a Buddhist
she claims shes a vegetarians because mollusk are not animals. (at least not in the teaching of Buddhism...maybe its because they don't move to any significant degree? I dunno what ancient people think) the mollusk are "sea plants" and is vegetable (in her Buddhist learning)
and therefore, you do not reincarnate into mollusk. so she says shes vegetarian

i say no way. but i guess she can claim whatever she wants

what do you think?
Update: really? scallop and oysters have heart and brain? last time i check they don't...but i can be wrong....
Update 2: lol obviously she only eat unfertilized eggs. shes very clear on that.
Update 3: Im sry skyle but i think plants are living things too....
