Feeding Kids meat Is child abuse ? LOL peta
you don't have to be a genius to work out which organisation claims that allowing your child to eat meat is child abuse. You probably thought of them as soon as you read the topic's subject.
Correct! It's PETA!
I know we could make a library of all the posts that we have on PETA, but I was rather bemused when I read about them in a Scottish newspaper, I generally did not know that they had an influence in the UK (especially not Scotland).
In Edinburgh, PETA put up a billboard claiming that feeding your child meat is abuse...
This might sound familiar to you...Imagine my surprise when I searched for this topic and I did find a similar post - from 3 years ago:
- Same thing but as a TV Advert.
(I tried to find it on YouTube but I couldn't, if you find it anywhere a link would be much appreciated)
The TV advert was banned in the states and the UK/Scottish would do well to do the same. I believe in free speech, but you got to have facts to back it up.
PETA are defending the billboard by claiming that they are tackling the city's childhood obesity problem.
I believe that NOT feeding your children meat would be closer to child abuse, and they are clearly hiding behind the obesity problem to 'save' their precious animals.
What do you think on the whole matter? Should it be taken down, or do you free speech should take priority here?
