Nothing indicates the horror of Montreal's pit bull ban better than this: PETA's mealy-mouthed congratulations.
It's open season on Mexican-Americans, whether you're a bigot running for president, or an "animal rights" organization fighting for its right to kill pets.
Before there was PETA, PCRM, Farm Sanctuary, Vegan Street and Meatless Monday, there was Farm Animal Rights Movement. Now celebrating its 40th year, ...
I didn't realize how pervasive animal exploitation is in our culture until I had to become more mindful.
I am reminded of the stare-down between drug companies and animal rights activists. Of this mounting conflict, you'd think the answer is simple -- that animals can and should eventually make their exit from so many labs and testing facilities. Alternatives are in the wings.

There are 37 chains -- with more than 1,000 total locations in the U.S. and Canada -- that offer vegan-friendly pizzas, complete with savory, protein-rich "meats" and melty, stretchy "cheeses."
