Fun with Lefty Activists

Want to spin up a PETA activist?

Ask them why it is wrong to eat eggs. Then ask them why the same logic does not apply to abortion.

I've not heard of any PETA activists who are pro-life, although I imagine there might be one or two. Most of them are stridently left-wing, however, and don't see any contradiction between being pro-choice on abortion and being anti-choice on dietary issues.

(FWIW, I am [weakly] pro-choice, so please do not submit a screed to the comments on the subject. I just cannot stand the hypocrisy and sanctimony of the extreme left on this topic.)

Huh? I'm no fan of PETA but...
Apples and oranges.
I doubt PETA would object if a hen chose to destroy her own eggs.

Ummm ... where to start?

(1) Many PETA activists probably *are* opposed to eating eggs because egg-laying chickens are kept in atrocious conditions.

(2) If egg-laying chickens were kept in good conditions, PETS activists would porbably not be opposed to eating eggs because those eggs are UNFERTILIZED. So there is NO analogy to aborting a fetus at all.
