Skeptico points out an awesome bit of hypocrisy from PeTA spokesloon and founder Ingrid Newkirk. Apparently she recently broke her wrist, and was very thankful for the IV drips and painkillers. Yip, those would be the same medical tools and drugs tested on animals. And this would be the same PeTA that urges its followers to eschew any form of medical assistance that was a result of animal testing, including hypothetical AIDS cures.
I would say I was surprised at Ingrid, but really I’m not.
