PETA Urges Ben & Jerry's To Use Human Milk

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow's milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman.

I love Ben and Jerry's response: "We applaud PETA's novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother's milk is best used for her child."

Like most of the "social justice" organizations that were born out of the 60 for the purpose of making a difference, they did but instead of being happy with the improvements that they were able to make in the general lives of animals and the reduction and improvement in care for animals used in medical/product testing, they have lost their way. They are now a caricature of their former selves and have just become more shrill and ridicules in their quest to maintain relevance. In some ways they now do more damage than if they did not exist at all.
