Peter Dinklage asks fans to join him in making kind choices by not hurting animals or asking others to hurt animals for them.
"NY Ink" star and tattoo artist Ami James says that people should "never be silent" for animals in a new ad for PETA.
Animals and the planet depend on us, and actor Maggie Q wants us to know what we can do to help.
Animals are forced to endure the pain of having chemicals applied to their sensitive eyes and skin. Join Dave in buying only cruelty-free products.

Not to Be Denied, Group Takes Pro-Vegan Message Straight to Pasadena Women's Health Conference

Pasadena, Calif. -- PETA had hoped to display its provocative
billboard linking chicken with urinary tract infections in women just in time
for the Southern California Women's Health Conference, but Pasadena-area
outdoor advertisers weren't exactly flush with joy over the idea. The billboard shows
an attractive young woman grimacing while parked on the privy with the caption
"Feeling a Little … Raw? Chicken Increases the Risk of Urinary Tract
Infections. Go Vegan." Now that both Clear Channel and Regency have
rejected the ad, PETA members will converge on the conference itself and hand
out leaflets emblazoned with the same ad:
When: Friday, November 2, 10 a.m.
Where: Outside the Pasadena Civic Center, 300 E. Green St., Pasadena
"Urinary tract infections, heart disease, and obesity
are enough to make women and men lose their appetite for chickens and
all other animals," says PETA Associate Director of Campaigns Lindsay
Rajt. "With all the delicious meat-, dairy-, and egg-free foods available,
it's never been easier to go vegan."
The text on the back of the leaflet explains that after
analyzing the genomes of the bacteria of women with urinary tract infections
(UTIs), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that most UTIs in
the U.S. may be caused by eating chicken. Strains of E. coli in women
with UTIs matched strains found in chicken meat. According to researchers, the
bacteria did not come from any contamination during the preparation process but
from the chicken itself.
In addition to carrying a risk of E. coli
contamination, meat, eggs, and dairy products contain no fiber and are loaded
with artery-clogging saturated fat and cholesterol. According to the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics, vegetarians are less prone to heart disease, diabetes,
obesity, and cancer than meat-eaters are. And every vegan spares the suffering
and lives of more than 100 animals every year.

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.
