BY SUZANNE PEREZ TOBIASWICHITA - A national animal rights group plans to erect billboards in Wichita urging people on both sides of the abortion debate to go vegetarian.

One version of the billboard says, "Pro-Life? Go Vegetarian." The other says, "Pro-Choice? Choose Vegetarian." Both feature a photo of three baby chicks.
These PETA types have a goal and it is clear, eat vegetable matter or weeds and such. Writing about this is making me crave veal cutlets.
The Virginia-based group opposes eating animals or using any animal byproducts. It also opposes animal testing, hunting, fishing and factory farming.
Here is another great bit of advertising genius:
PETA has been criticized for the style and content of its campaigns, including a 2003 "Holocaust on Your Plate" exhibition, which juxtaposed images of the Holocaust with images of factory farming.
It is hard to get behind a movement when your message compares processing meat with the Holocaust. That is just insane. We are omnivores (feeding on both animal and vegetable substances).
"If our billboards leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth, we just think they might give a thought to what animals feel when they go to the slaughterhouse," she said. SOURCE
After reading that, I feel the need to go and cook about four pounds of bacon, roast a couple of chickens and get some steaks ready for dinner tonight. I may even skip anything with vegetables after reading this article. PETA failed to turn me away from meat yet again.
