Flesh Is a Losing Proposition—for Animals and Humans, Says PETA

Washington -- Two PETA members—one dressed like a pig and the other like a cow—will dish out
free vegan meatballs smack in the middle of Meat Week's barbecue food truck
competition. PETA's point? That underneath all the smoke is the flesh of an
abused animal who wanted nothing more than to live and that eating animal flesh
makes humans sick and fat.
When: Friday, February 1, 5:30 p.m.
Where: Outside the LivingSocial offices, at the intersection of D and Eighth streets N.W., Washington
"Vegan meatballs and chicken wings and other faux meats have all the
flavor but none of the cholesterol and animal suffering found in every speck of
pork, chicken, and beef," says PETA Associate Director of Campaigns Lindsay
Rajt. "The last thing that unhealthy and overweight Americans need on
their plates is more meat."
On today's factory farms, chickens and turkeys have their throats cut while
they're still conscious, piglets are castrated and have their tails cut off
without being given any painkillers, and cows are hung upside down and are
often skinned while they're still able to feel pain. On the decks of fishing
boats, fish suffocate or are cut open while they're still alive. Also, heart disease,
obesity, diabetes, strokes, and cancer have been conclusively linked to the
consumption of meat and other animal-derived products.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
