Value All Life–Go Vegan, PETA Urges OK After Hobby Lobby Ruling

Published by Heather Moore.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to allow Hobby Lobby, an Oklahoma City business owned by people with strong religious convictions, to refuse to pay for insurance that covers emergency contraceptives for its employees, PETA is attempting to place its thought-provoking “Killed at 7 Weeks” billboard in the city.

PETA Killed At 7 Weeks Billboard

PETA hopes people who value life will also save chickens and other animals by choosing vegan foods. Like us, chickens are made of flesh, bone, and blood. They form strong family ties and mourn when they lose a loved one. And yet billions of chickens are killed for their flesh every year. The birds are only a few weeks old when they’re sent to the slaughterhouse, where they’re shackled upside down, their throats are slit, and many are scalded to death.

PETA wants people on both sides of the birth control and abortion debates to make the compassionate choice and try tasty vegan foods.
