"We've lost our humanity, completely ignoring the suffering of these animals. How can we turn away and not look at their suffering when we are responsible for it? We are what drives this industry."
I look forward to running around town and country this winter with my new deer hide bag knowing exactly where it came from, the process it took to get it to its present state and the fact that that beautiful stag lived a serene life way up in the foggy, chilly, windy and romantic Scottish Highlands.
Every time we choose what we're going to wear, we make a statement about who we are in the world: Progressive values involve taking the side of the weak against the strong, but wearing dead animals does the opposite of that.
Since we can't count on the meat, egg, and dairy industries to protect animals from the most egregious forms of cruelty, what can we, as consumers, do? Opting out of paying someone to allow animals to die in a barn fire or at the slaughterhouse seems pretty reasonable.
It's hard to believe that in a matter of a few months I'll be running over 13 miles. In fact, it's the first time in a long time that I've donned athletic apparel more than two days in a row.
Food is about more than sustenance in a place like Kashgar; it is a way of life, and a source of pride and community. Neglecting to consider the goat is, in a sense, neglecting to consider the history of the region, and the remarkable determination of its people to survive.
Switching to a plant-based diet can lessen your contribution to global warming and the overall use of resources. It can also boost your health.
Free the Animals tells the riveting, real-life story of the people who put on disguises, use fake IDs, or jimmy their way into laboratories in order to carry out the daring rescues of animals used in experiments and of the insiders, the whistleblowers, who risk their jobs to help them.
PETA's new campaign, "Never Be Silent," is inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who said, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." It encourages everyone to speak up for others whose pain is often casually ignored.
When I was 12, I first made the decision to go vegetarian. Almost 10 whole years went by before I decided it was time to take it to the next level and choose a solely plant-based diet for myself.
Starting this fall, peta2 -- the student division of PETA -- will be launching peta2's Glass Walls Exhibit: 3D, the world's first traveling 3D factory...
It seems that more and more Americans are becoming aware of the negative health and animal welfare implications of drinking cow's milk and are switching to soy, almond, and rice milks to enjoy with their cookies and cereal.
If the existential slicing and dicing of pork from pig answers the ethical objections to meat-eating, can there be any real objection to the cultivation and consumption of vat-grown people meat?
Think treating trees as entities with rights is farfetched? Is it more of a stretch than designating corporations and ships as persons for legal purposes? Scientific evidence indicates that trees can communicate with each other. No, they cannot argue about politics.
The marriage of hunting and conservation may be troubled, but it is not time for divorce. Private hunting- and fishing-based organizations contribute to habitat preservation.
The Trump brothers' destructive little joyride to Africa is something that they should apologize for. It won't bring back the lives they took or redeem America's image among Africans and others, but it would show something they need desperately: some humility.
