Happy Thanksgiving from PETA

'Grace': PETA's Thanksgiving ad

Here's my 2 cents, yes indeed everything about this ad is true, what it doesn't say is that if you buy a heritage Turkey from a local farmer then really most of it isn't true at all. I also have problems with the idea that just because factory farming is evil that the only choice is to go Vegan as they suggest it seems simplistic and one sided to me.

Eggs, milk, cheese can be easily obtained from wonderful farmers who treat there animals with love, kindness and without killing them for there meat. It's also worth mentioning here that chickens and cows in particular would become rapidly extinct if they were not part of our food system, there very survival on the planet is based upon their historical importance to us as food. The issue here, which is only partly dealt with by Peta is how can we do that humanely, factory farms obviously are not the answer.
