PETA is bad.
Debate Rounds (3)
First off, PETA has been protesting at SeaWorld, trying to bring to light the cruel orca tanks and crowded animal centers. SeaWorld has been in several legal battles before, and it is clear to see why. Ex-SeaWorld trainers have revealed the cruelty to PETA there toward orcas especially. Jeff Ventre (now a doctor) and John Jett (now a biology professor) worked at SeaWorld Orlando, and now work with the Orca Project, fighting for the rights of these poor animals. They revealed that the whales are confined to small, shallow pools, have a lack of social interaction, and inadequate medical care. They even mentioned whales at SeaWorld have a lifespan of only 9 years, while orcas in the wild have a lifespan of about 30-50 years. Now, PETA is working with the Orca Project to fight for the rights of these whales.
PETA protesters are also fighting to bring an end to NIH's "maternal-deprivation experiments" on infant monkeys. This is a paragraph from a PETA article, explaining the evilness of the NIH's experiments:
"As revealed in video footage released by PETA, NIH experimenters at a laboratory in Maryland breed monkeys to be prone to depression, remove the infants from their mothers at birth to induce trauma, and then subject the young ones to years of experiments designed to cause, worsen, and measure the babies" severe fear, depression, and anxiety. These experiments have never led to the development of treatments for human mental illness and are superseded by human brain imaging and other modern techniques but have continued for more than 30 years and cost taxpayers more than $30 million in just the past seven years alone."
The NIH is using taxpayer dollars to abuse infant monkeys. The PETA program has been working feverously to stop this. They have even involved work with several scientists, such as Jane Goodall, to bring an end to this abuse.
Anyone that argues PETA is bad is wrong. As you can see here, PETA has been fighting non-stop for the rights of abused animals across the world. Without them, this cruelty could continue and turn into an even bigger problem.
