Philadelphia and Baltimore
may be a little safer after PETA members worked tirelessly to get baby-killers
off the streets—the killers of
baby turkeys, that is.
baby doll bedecked with frills served as the centerpiece for this eerie
Thanksgiving dinner, making the point that farmers drug and breed turkeys to grow so fast
that most are only months old
when they are slammed upside down into metal shackles, only to have their throats slit. (What kind
of job is that? But who pays someone to do it? The consumer!)
as we hear out there, ever more people are turning to a meal that celebrates
life and spares a turkey, not "pardons" one. After all, what crime
could a baby have committed?
