    Progressive Leaflet (PETA)



    EXCERPTS:

    “On modern factory farms, baby chicks have their beaks burned off, calves are castrated and branded without painkillers, and mother pigs are confined for years to metal crates so narrow that they cannot even turn around. Violence and oppression are always wrong, regardless of whether the victim is a cow, a chicken, or a human being.”

    —Civil rights leader Dick Gregory

    ...

    “Meatpacking is the most dangerous factory job in America. . . . Nearly every worker interviewed for this report bore physical signs of a serious injury suffered from working in a meat or poultry plant. . . . Every country has its horrors, and this industry is one of the horrors in the United States.”

    —Human Rights Watch, Blood, Sweat, and Fear:
    Workers’ Rights in U.S. Meat and Poultry Plants (2005)

    ...

    Do you want to help stop exploitation and cruelty, while enjoying a wide range of delicious, healthy foods? If so, please consider vegetarianism. Try it for a few days per week and see what you think. Your body and your conscience will feel better than ever.
