Actual quotes from prominent PETA leaders.

My ideal is "a return to the garden of Eden where even the animals are
vegetarian." -- Andrea Reed, Louisville Fund for Animals Lexington Herald, 1990)

The smallest form of life, even an ant or a clam, is equal to a human being. -- Ingrid Newkirk, PETA

Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughter houses. -- Ingrid Newkirk (PETA) Washington Post, Nov 13, 1983)

We feel animals have the same rights as a retarded human child. -- Alex Pacheco (PETA) New York Times, Jan 14, 1989)


On leather jackets: That's the next step. You have to take one step at a time. It was easier to start with fur. -- Dan Matthews, Director of Fur Campaign, PETA Detroit News, August 13, 1989)

Never buy wool again. Choose only cotton, synthetics and other non-animal fibers. The sheep are embarrassed when they are shorn, sometimes they are nicked during the process, and they get cold afterward. -- PETA News, August 13, 1989)

Arson, property destruction, burglary and theft are "acceptable crimes" when used for the animals' cause. -- Alex Pacheco (PETA) Charleston, W. VA Gazette-Mail, Jan 15, 1989)
