I would like to note that the BoP lies entirely on Pro throughout the debate.

Definitions

PETA - "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals; an American animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia, and led by Ingrid Newkirk, its international president." [1]

Ethical - "relating to moral principles or the branch of knowledge dealing with these." [2]

Arguments

PETA directly or indirectly promotes at least some form of morality. It is, at the very least, related to morality, and, thus, moral principles. [3] Therefore, as "ethical" means *related* to morality, PETA is related to morality, and, thus, is an ethical group.
