Why does PETA believe that pro-life activists should be vegan?

When people say that they are “pro-life” yet choose to support violence, misery, and death every time they eat a meal, they have become “pro-death.” The obvious “pro-life” choice is to be vegan.

Every time we sit down to eat, we make a life or death choice: Do we want to support compassion and mercy? Or do we want to support misery, violence, and bloodshed? Will we opt to be cruel or to be kind? Most of us would agree that it is immoral to cause gratuitous suffering to a dog or a cat. It makes sense to extend this same understanding to equally sensitive cows, pigs, chickens, fish, and other animals.
