People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Maybe they DO care more about animals than humans. But its only because humans have the voice, and power to defend themselves, animals are completely defenseless. If you disagree with their intentions, you're supporting animal abuse.
Meat is EXTREMELY unhealthy for you. Causing all kinds of fatal diseases. Cancer, E. Coli & Osteoporosis just to name a few. Eat meat if you want, but don't abuse a defenseless animal. Peta is ridiculous, yet well intentioned. But that doesnt make it ok.

Acronym for: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Members of this group work to spread a common love for all animals by promoting veganism and the humane treatment of animals.
PETA believes that it is completely unnecessary and cruel that cows, pigs, and chickens are often fully conscious during slaughter.

PETA (PEA-tuh) stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They are only people who care about animals, and fight for them because other morons won't. Just because "Meat tastes good" or "Animals are here for us to eat" which is NOT TRUE.
The human body isn't built to digest meat. Idiots.
Someone needs to defend the animals, they're helpless alone. is not for the ignorant.

An organization dedicated to a good cause. Peta helps animals everywhere, but is a very controversial group. That is because people are so used to treating animals like shit that they could not stand not being selfish and giving up meat.
Did you hear about PETA's campaign against Wet Seal selling fur?

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is the largest animal rights organization in the world. Founded in 1980, PETA is dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals. PETA operates under the simple principle that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment.
PETA is hated by rednecks, Jerry Falwell, right-wing pin heads and corporate America.

The only animal rights organization that matters. PETA works to stop animal cruelty through creative demonstrations, legislation, ad campaigns and so much more. PETA has a respectable record of getting things done.

PETA, is an acronym for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and despite what you may believe they do do all that they can to help animals. Animals do have the same rights as humans, and PETA tries to get that point across to the rest of the world, no matter what it takes. I know you're all gonna give this a big thumbs down, but i couldnt stand to see a joke made of the name of PETA one more time.
PETA is an incredible minority group, trying to do what they can to make the world much more humane.
