PETA Asks Rep. John Moore to Pull a Sen. Cory Booker

Published by PETA.

Following his heart bypass surgery, Rep. John Moore is getting a special delivery, courtesy of PETA: a care package that includes a vegan starter kit, a selection of tasty vegan goodies, and Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr.’s book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, which advocates healthy, plant-based eating. Along with these get-well gifts, the group is enclosing a letter encouraging him to eat his way to better health by bypassing the meat, dairy, and egg aisles.

“We wish Rep. Moore a speedy recovery and hope that he—and everyone else—will prevent serious health threats by leaving meat, eggs, and dairy ‘products’ off the menu,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “There’s no better way to protect our health, as well as the Earth and animals, than by choosing tasty vegan foods at every meal.”
