Naked Woman Demonstrates That All Animals Have The Same Parts
dublin | animal rights | news report Friday November 30, 2007 14:38 by John Carmody - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
Painted in a Butcher's Diagram, Female PETA Member Urges Consumers to Go Vegetarian This Christmas
Stripping down to nearly nothing but paint markings that mimic a butcher's diagram of body parts, a female member of PETA Europe (PETA) just recently posed in Dublin's busiest shopping district to remind Christmas shoppers that "All Animals Have the Same Parts – Have a Heart", and ask them to "Go Veg this Christmas".
With the Christmas season upon us and revelers planning their Christmas menus, PETA wants to demonstrate that all animals – including humans – are made of flesh, blood and bone, and that we have the same senses and range of emotions. Every year, billions of animals have their bodies chopped up, labelled as shanks or other cuts of meat, and wrapped in cellophane for supermarkets' chilled cabinets. In the wild, turkeys can live up to 10 years. But turkeys raised for food spend three to six months crowded together in intensive confinement and routinely endure painful mutilations such as debeaking without anaesthetics. The overwhelming majority of pigs raised for food in the EU spend their entire lives in overcrowded pens on a tiny slab of filthy concrete. Lack of exercise causes pigs to become so weak that they can barely walk. They typically suffer skeletal problems and diseases of the legs and feet.
This live re-enactment of the famous “All Animals Have the Same Parts – Have a Heart. Go Vegetarian” PETA advert which has featured Jodie Marsh and Baywatch star Traci Bingham, is aimed at encouraging people to view animals as more than walking meals. Animals raised for their flesh have personalities and feelings and form families and friendships – if they are given the chance.
"Animals aren't 'breasts' or 'thighs' or 'flanks'", says PETA member John Carmody. "They think, feel and want to live, just as you and I do. We're asking people to celebrate a vegetarian Christmas and give everyone – including animals – something to be thankful for this holiday season."
