PETA Fires Back, Saying That Officials Are Illegally Trampling Group's Right to Free Speech
Kan. -- PETA has fired off a letter demanding that the Kansas State Fair reverse
its decision to require PETA to shield gruesome video
footage of factory farms narrated by Paul McCartney from visitors at its
booth. In the letter, PETA claims that fair officials in the nation's
second-largest beef state have violated the group's right of free speech in a
government-sanctioned public forum by censoring the content of the booth. The booth recently made
headlines in Iowa when officials
temporarily booted it because of profanity used by violent farm workers in the
footage. In a thought-provoking twist on the traditional 4-H booth's promotion
of the meat industry, which sharply contrasts with the organization's otherwise
positive mission, PETA's four H's stand for "Hell for
animals," "Hazardous to the environment," "Heart
attack–inducing," and "Hypocritical for teaching kids to
care about only certain animals and to disrespect others."
"Meat comes from intelligent, feeling animals who
suffer every day of their lives on factory farms and experience a painful and
terrifying death at slaughterhouses," says PETA Executive Vice President
Tracy Reiman. "People who eat meat deserve to know the truth. The truth
isn't always pleasant, but you don't get around it by denying people their
today's factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy,
windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt
lots, and other cruel confinement systems. Chickens and turkeys have their
throats cut while they're still conscious, piglets have their tails and
testicles cut off without being given any painkillers, fish are suffocated or
cut open while they're still alive on the decks of fishing boats, and calves
are torn away from their mothers within hours of birth—causing severe trauma to
both mothers and calves.

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.
