As you may recall, peta2 really put animal rights and veganism on the national debating map with our long-running series of high-profile “Is Eating Meat Ethical?” debates, held at major universities from Princeton to Texas A&M.
Now, we’re thrilled to announce that the National Forensic League, a nonprofit organization that coordinates America’s 120,000 high school debate students, has chosen animal rights as their fall theme. Students will argue both sides of the issue, with the discussion focused on the fundamental question “does justice require the recognition of animal rights?”
The national debate organizers also contacted PETA, asking that we submit a video statement about the importance and history of animal rights, to provide some context for how students should approach this crucial issue. Here’s what we put together:
We’re confident that once students research the hideous abuses animals face when raised and killed for food, clothing, experimentation, and other industries, they’ll be able to make an ironclad case in support of their protection.
As for the unlucky students tasked with opposing animal rights? Well, good luck with that.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
