Sometimes it seems like PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk doesn’t sleep a wink. While on tour promoting her new book, she took time out to appear on CNN and denounce Puerto Rico’s plans to erect a breeding facility for monkeys. Sometime during all that, she managed to pen an article about how easy it is to be kind to animals. It was posted yesterday on The Huffington Post.
Check out this snippet of Ingrid’s article, and then head over to The Huffington Post, read the rest, and leave Ingrid a comment:
This week, Sir Paul McCartney and his daughter Stella introduced the concept of “Meat-Free Mondays,” coincidentally the same name as that of a program that PETA Europe is also working on in British schools. As a vegan who was once busily eating her way through the animal kingdom, from mussels to calf’s brains on toast, it’s a message that I wish I’d heard far earlier, just as I wish that when I wore my first fur coat, there had been an animal rights activist there to hand me a card saying, “Your coat was stolen from its original owners.” Thirty years ago, a good animal rights “nag” was hard to find.
