PETA Says Ben & Jerry’s Should Use Human Breast Milk in Its Ice Cream

Bookmark and Share

Ok, so this is a little out there…but here goes. PETA, People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals, sent a letter to the ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s, urging the company to use human breast milk in its ice cream.
PETA’s blog says, “We explained that using cow’s milk for their ice cream is a hazard to consumers’ health…But it’s not all about us humans. Animals will also benefit from the switch to breast milk. Because, like all mammals, cows only give milk during or after pregnancy, in order for humans to constantly milk them, they are forcefully impregnated every nine months. Many live in filthy conditions and are forced to give 10 times more milk than they would naturally. It’s truly an awful life.”
PETA says Ben & Jerry’s responded, saying “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.”
Here’s the story, covered by a VT television station.
You know what I’d love PETA to do, how about stepping into the election fray. Does PETA have anything to say about Sarah Palin’s hunting habits, her opposition to putting polar bears on the endangered species list, or her support of aerial hunting of wolves?

I am the biggest animal lover there is, but PETA needs to quit it with the ridiculous antics to get media attentiom. It only hurts their (and my) cause. If you want socially responsible ice cream, buy it made with rice or soy milk. I guess folks are supposed to feel bad for cows who are full of hormones and milked around the clock, but feel perfectly fine about moms giving up their baby’s nourishment and suffering through round-the-clock pumping in order to make what, a serving of ice cream? They need to go somewhere with that nonsense.

HAHA! This is the craziest thing I’ve read in a while. What was PETA thinking? I’m a vegetarian and for the most part support PETA but this was a little too far out there. I wonder how many ounces of breastmilk it would take to make one pint of B&J’s ice cream. Craziness.
