One reason I'm glad to live in Houston is that the Texas Medical Center is here. The center includes some of the country's leading health care facilities, such as the Texas Heart Institute (THI)—which was recently named one of America's best centers for heart care for the 20th consecutive year. So THI seems like the perfect place to display our sizzling "Bypass Heart Disease" ad, which features a sexy nurse touting the cardiovascular benefits of a vegan diet.
We've sent our request to the institute's president, but now we want our readers to weigh in. Please vote in the following poll. And as always, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
Should THI use PETA's sexy nurse poster to let people know that they can improve their heart health by removing fatty and cholesterol-laden meat, milk, and eggscustomer surveys

This advertisement is extremely derogatory to women, and to nurses. Nurses are trained medical professionals, not strippers. This ad belittles the lifesaving work that nurses do.
Really, PETA, can't you find a way to accomplish your objectives that does not reduce women to *** a$$?
I AGREE WITH CAROLE.
What does it prove to stir up hard-ons? ANYone can do that! The STate of the Union Undress was very distasteful and how will anyone take PETA seriously with these kinds of drastic ads? ANYONE CAN TAKE OFF THEIR CLOTHES. Two wrongs don't make a right.
lighten up folks, It's funny. and besides, it gets attention and causes people to think. (yes, my wife agrees) I do wish Peta would place some emphasis on eating LESS meat, in addition to eating no meat. how much attention would an overweight construction worker receive, eh....
I don't think it should. Sorry.
People give Peta a lot of flack for being sexist, and usually (being a protester and all) I say it's soley to get attention. But this is unnecessary. If you are aiming to show that a vegetarian diet is apart of a healthier life, than do that with something else besides a girl's breasts. Use statistics and something that would suggest 'health'. How about a family eating a vegetarian meal? Or someone who has gone vegetarian and saw their risks of heart disease go down? People respond positively to that. This just seems distasteful, offensive (to women) and gives people bad impression of Peta and it's members. Please do us, your supporters, proud.
PETA, I think most of your campaigns are amazing, but the one thing that almost makes me want to quit PETA is this crap. Why waste donation money on sex? Sex does NOT sell, especially for charity! What the hell does a "sexy nurse" have to do with the health benefits of veganism? I hate when PETA uses naked celebrities to prove a totally irrelevant point. I can understand it when the poster says "i'd rather go naked than wear fur." that makes sense. But heart health? the circus? wtf do naked people have to do with that? this is a disgrace. Please remove that ad and NEVER repeat the action again!

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.
