PETA terrorizes children

PETA starts terrorizing childred at performances of ``The Nutcracker'' in the next few weeks by handing out fliers saying ``Your Mommy Kills Animals'' to youngsters whose mothers are wearing fur. (Boston Herald)

The fliers include a color drawing of a woman plunging a large bloody knife into the belly of a terrified rabbit. It's a pretty funny drawing actually, would have been great around halloween time.

The fliers say "ask your mommy how many dead animals she killed to make her fur clothes".

I've always found it somewhat hypocritical that PETA supporters are supportive of abortion rights, kind of like on the opposite end how death penalty supporters are often anti-abortion.

I wonder how PETA feels about animal abortions?!?

From the PETA FAQ on Abortion:

"Where does the animal rights movement stand on abortion?"

There are people on both sides of the abortion issue in the animal rights movement, just as there are people on both sides of animal rights issues in the pro-life movement. And just as the pro-life movement has no official position on animal rights, neither does the animal rights movement have an official position on abortion.

"Is PETA pro-life?"

No. We are not pro-life or pro-choice as an organization, for that is not part of our charter. We are an animal rights organization and our mission statement is that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment. However, we have pro-life members and this message is brought to you by people who care about all life. We are asking people who feel in their hearts and souls that taking the life of an unborn child is wrong, to also consider the lives of other wonderful beings who do not want to die.
