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.

AKA: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. A group of animal activist who are commonly misread or misunderstood. PETA members consist of radicals and extremists but also vegans such as Leona Lewis, Nia Long and Forest Whittaker. Not all PETA members are radical people. They put unhealthy and suffering animals to sleep fairly and painlessly. They aren't 100% against the use of consuming animals as much as they are against animals being viciously harmed for food and worn for their fur. They don't think human life is less important then animal life. They simply believe that animal life and rights aren't fought for enough. Just because they fight for the protection of animals of and not for humans does not make them an inhumane people. Stop judging people and things you know bits and pieces or nothing about.
PETA is hosting a protest against fur trade.

Wow, I hope change is made.

Me too.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) (stylized PeTA) is an American animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia, and led by Ingrid Newkirk, its international president. A non-profit corporation with 300 employees and two million members and supporters, it is the largest animal rights group in the world. Its slogan is "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment."

Founded in March 1980 by Newkirk and fellow animal rights activist Alex Pacheco, the organization first caught the public's attention in the summer of 1981 during what became known as the Silver Spring monkeys case, a widely publicized dispute about experiments conducted on 17 macaque monkeys inside the Institute of Behavioral Research in Silver Spring, Maryland. The case lasted ten years, involved the only police raid on an animal laboratory in the United States, triggered an amendment in 1985 to that country's Animal Welfare Act, and established PETA as an internationally known organization. Since then, in its campaigns and undercover investigations, it has focused on four core issues—opposition to factory farming, fur farming, animal testing, and animals in entertainment—though it also campaigns against fishing, the killing of animals regarded as pests, the keeping of chained backyard dogs, cock fighting, dog fighting, and bullfighting.

Allie: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Jenna: Oh, she must be crazy and violent then.
Allie: Actually, all she wants is for everyone to be treated equally, to end slavery and this holocaust.
Jenna: Oh.. she actually sounds like she has good morals.

Protection and Empathy for Tortured Animals.
PETA are there when animals needed a friend, because the animals can't speak up against the evil people who profit from their misery and suffering.

PETA are the most amazing animal rights group on the planet, because they go out on a limb to draw attention to a problem that people who have lost their conscience don't want to face.

PETA is admired by animal lovers all over the world, because they have guts and determination and don't back down when it comes to fairness and morons who think with their stomachs before their hearts.

PETA does NOT pour red paint on some rich ladys fur coat! It dosent relese animals from the labs they are in. It dosent vandalize peoples property! PETA isnt trying to put McDoanalds out of busniess or KFC. PETA is trying to get them to use a more humane method of kill. PETA knows that not everybody is going to be vegan or vegetarian. They would hope that everyone would be but they know thats not going to happen. All of you people dont know what the hell your talkin about because you arent part of PETAs StreetTeam. All of you haters can go suck it!
