It has been a week of milestones at PETA. Sunday
we told you about the 30th anniversary of the Silver Spring monkeys case,
PETA's first investigation, which thrust animal rights into mainstream
consciousness. Today, PETA's first cookbook, The
Compassionate Cook: Or, "Please Don’t Eat the Animals!" is
being re-released to celebrate its 18th anniversary.
Authored by PETA President Ingrid Newkirk,
the book has received rave reviews over the years for its 225 easy recipes made
from simple, everyday ingredients for people who want to save animals' lives
every time they sit down to eat.

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.
