In light of my recent decision to become vegetarian I have also joined and became a member of PETA.
I am particularly proud of this since in my opinion it is a fantastic cause and organization. This is one cause that I would like to use this blog to raise funds for.
Animal welfare is a very serious issue to me personally. I have always been an animal lover my entire life and have always been against animal testing, writing extensively about it and how horrible and useless it is, in college. It just never made sense why these companies feel the need to not only use defenseless animals to test their products but they do it is such cruel ways. The experiments are way too extreme than anything a human would ever do with those products. Also in the case of medical testing for medications, who is to say an animal’s life is more important than a humans? Only the humans are the one making this assumption. Even when animals are used for testing the drugs still have to be tested on humans anyway, most of the research taken from animal testing is disregarded completely. Why do we have to be this way to the other creatures that share this planet with us?
So now I am official PETA member, I even bought a shirt to proudly display my loyalty not only to PETA but to all of the animals of the world, especially those who unknowingly give their life in such savage ways to end up on some usually ungrateful persons plate.
