5) PETAs president has said that even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we would be against it. And PETA has repeatedly attacked research foundations like the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, solely because they support animal-based research aimed at curing life-threatening diseases and birth defects. And PETA helped to start and manage a quasi-medical front group, the misnamed Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, to attack medical research head-on.

If you think PETA is your friend, think again. PETA thinks they have the right to tell you: no pets, no meat, no milk, no zoos, no circuses, no fishing, no leather, and no animal testing for lifesaving medicines (also keep in mind, some species of animals ONLY exist in captivity, PETA would rather these animals were extinct).
PETA doesn't value or promote freedom, non-violence or dignity. If you support groups like the March of Dimes, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, the American Cancer Society or if you own any pets, if you drink milk, if you go to zoos(including your children), if you want to be or are a vet or vet assistant, if you eat meat you are PETA's named enemy and are a legitimate target in their eyes
