AZ Abortion Debate Inspires PETA Ad

Written by PETA | August 6, 2012

PETA wants to give parties on both sides of the debate over Arizona’s new law banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy some other food for thought as we get set to display a new billboard in the Phoenix area. We think that everyone should be able to agree about death on factory farms and beyond:

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 pain when they are stunned, have their throats cut, or are scalded to death or 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!

    seriously? I love animals, but to value them over human life and rights? [Text cut/expletive]. Sure,w what happens to those chicks is horrible, but this is NOT the appropriate place to argue it.

  • Seriously says:

    please don’t feed your pets meatless diets. They need it to be healthy. They are domesticated animals for thousands of years. Beneful is just fine.

  • Frank Andrade says:

    Anabel lee, not sure what pets you have but you can usually provide some variety even in the more strict dietary cases. Personally I feel that purely carnivorous animals belong in the wild as part of an ancient system of symbiosis between predictor and prey. Take for instance birds of prey who keep rodents from destroying their own environment with overpopulation which leads to mass starvation. So if you have a raptor not sure there’s much you can do, but Dont beat yourself up, just avoid these exotic types. But on the off chance you mean dogs and cats, try ‘Evolution’ brand food. It has all the tricky amino acids a dog or cat needs :)

    I agree with Peggy, well done PETA, I am also not a watcher of the videos, just too sensitive and what I have read about abuse still haunts me in my minds eye. But, thank goodness animals have PETA and like minded people.

    Lets see a more humane society. I was vegetarian for a few years but more recently became vegan. I did not make these changes overnight. I began by cutting out meat twice a week and substituting it with another form of protein, as time went on I reduced my meat intake more and more. There are lots of vegetarian cookery books that can help you on your way. Meat is bad for you and bad for animals. How can eating corpses a good thing. It just doesn’t make sense.

  • Annabel Lee says:

    I’m lacto vegetarian. But what to do with my pets, how to feed them if not meat? I feel guilty.

  • Emy Trieu says:

    I have been a vegetarian for 15 years and recently it makes sense to me that going VEGAN is the only way to possibly safe all the animals. If you say you love animals then GO VEGAN!! ^_^

  • Jen Wilcher says:

    This is terrible to hear. Please stop cruelty to these animals.

  • Barbora Cizikova says:

    horrible

  • sherry nillissen says:

    All for greed.

  • Sebastian says:

    Animals needs a Hero!

  • shannon horn says:

    Killing animals is just wrong.

  • Salvador Sánchez Martínez says:

    Respect the life of animals, as we have been entrusted in their care. It is our responsibility to protect them and be sensitive and eliminate abuse and cruelty to animals.

  • Thom Jaskula says:

    Speaking up for those who can’t…

  • Mukesh Tanwar says:

    Countless number of chickens are killed for food every year over the world when they are only 6 to 7 weeks old, and most of the pigs and turkeys killed for food iare less than 1 year old. Animals killed for food feel pain when they are stunned, have their throats cut, or are scalded to death or dismembered while they’re still conscious. Why doesn’t anyone speak about that? Why is humanity a monopoly of humans? Why don’t we want to feel their pain? Why is our taste a priority over an innocent life? Why is abortion a big deal when this is not??

  • Peggy L. says:

    Thank you PETA for continuing to help our animals – I can’t watch your videos as I am too sensitive to animal cruelty but I know what is going on- I feel bad when people put PETA down- I am glad you are there

  • Debz Jones says:

    A VEGAN LIFESTYLE’S EASY AND FAR HEALTHIER THAN EATING ANIMALS!!!!.
