PETA wants to give parties on both sides of the debate over Arizona's new

Billions of chickens are killed for food every year in the U.S. when they are only 6 to 7 weeks old,
and most of the pigs and turkeys killed for food are less than 1 year old. Animals killed for food feel

dismembered while they're still conscious.
Pro-life? You can save lives by eating vegan foods. Pro-choice? Choose meals that are better for animals, your health, and our environment. Makes sense!
