“Turkeys feel pain and fear, experience joy, value their lives, and don’t deserve to be carved up and stuffed any more than we do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s tutu-wearing ‘turkeys’ are urging everyone to show a little mercy by tucking into savory, satisfying vegan roasts that give everyone something to be thankful for.”ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a “ThanksVegan” recipe guide.
