PETA Co-Founder Ingrid Newkirk's "Unique Will"

Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), is so dedicated to her cause that she is determined to continue her campaign for animal rights even after she's dead.

In fact, she even plans to hold ... nay, participate, in a BBQ of sorts ... in a very unique way. Here's her "Unique Will" (her words, not mine):

Upon my death, it is my wish that my body be used in a manner that draws attention to needless animal suffering and exploitation. [...]

a. That the “meat” of my body, or a portion thereof, be used for a human barbecue, to remind the world that the meat of a corpse is all flesh, regardless of whether it comes from a human being or another animal, and that flesh foods are not needed;

b. That my skin, or a portion thereof, be removed and made into leather products, such as purses, to remind the world that human skin and the skin of other animals is the same and that neither is “fabric” nor needed, and that some skin be tacked up outside the Indian Leather Fair each year to serve as a reminder of the government’s need to abate the suffering of Indian bullocks who, after a life of extreme and involuntary servitude, as I have seen firsthand, are exported all over the world in this form;

I am a vegetarian and have been for 3 years. For the people who are posting "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals", most of you would not eat your steak so lightly if you knew where it came from. Nothing against you, I just wish people knew where their food came from before they ate it. I am a firm believer that knowlege is power.

Though Ingrid is radical, she is still getting her point across and people posting angry messages and posting her quotes are fueling her publicity whore mentality. If you do not like PeTA then do not look her up and do not comment on her life style choices. Simple as pie.

Yes humans' mouths are designed to have an omnivore diet but because we have a higher sence of decision we can choose to eat other wise. The same energy, food, and water used to grow cattle is more wasteful and would be beter used by just giving that same food and water to humans.

The only time I would ever EVEN consider eating an animal would be if there was absolutely nothing else to eat, I killed and cleaned it myself, and i was on the verge of death.

Mr.Shankbone... You have a point, however the problem with Ms. Newkirk is less WHAT she believes than it is the WAY she believes. Do not make the mistake of believing there is any redeeming qualities in fanatism. She is clearly a hypocrit who is more interested in bullying other weaker minded people into doing what she herself clearly cannot, for the sake of her own shallow self validation. Popularity driven self esteem doesn't make her a mean person, it just makes her kinda pathetic.
