Christian Serratos of the Twilight saga is celebrating the living and honoring the dead in her latest ad with PETA.
Christian previously spoke up for animals by boldly stating that she would
rather go naked than wear fur. Now she is doing even more for animals by urging her fans not to
treat their bodies like graveyards and to respect life by choosing vegetarian
meals. By eating vegetarian, Christian has more energy,
helps combat environmental
devastation, and saves animals used by the meat industry
from a painful life and death. She is continuing her support for all animals
in an ad that also honors her Hispanic heritage with an ode to a very cherished
holiday, Dia de Los
Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
Cows, pigs, chickens,
turkeys, and other animals used by the meat industry die slowly and in pain.
They are crowded onto trucks and transported over many miles through all
weather extremes, typically without food or water, to the slaughterhouse. Those
who survive this nightmarish journey will have their throats slit, often while
they are still conscious.
Christian has been
helping animals and PETA since she was 14 and says this about her switch to a
vegetarian diet: "I just felt better and brighter and lighter, and I had more
energy … It was a big deal to me, being an animal lover." Check out this behind-the-scenes video from Christian's shoot
and learn all the ways she tries to get people involved, why she will never go
to the circus, and how she came to realize that all animals are equal.

your health? Join Christian and keep flesh off your plate. Respect life by

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.
