Group Weighs In on Abortion Debate With Pro-Vegan Billboard

Phoenix -- With the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granting a
preliminary injunction last Wednesday that blocks implementation of Arizona's
new law that bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, PETA wants to give
parties on both sides of the debate some food for thought. That's why the group
is currently negotiating with Phoenix-area outdoor advertisers to display a billboard that
shows an innocent, curious baby chick and reads, "Killed at 7 Weeks.

slaughterhouse when they are 6 to 7 weeks old.
"We all hold the power to save a life or take a life
every time we choose what to eat," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk.
"We are asking people to try to relate to who's on that plate and to
choose life by eating vegetarian or vegan meals."
On average, turkeys used for food are only 6 months old when
