Peta in my essay???????

QUESTION
Peta in my essay???????
I have to an essay with this question:Imagine that you are a philanthropist who would like to donate $10,000,000 to various causes to benefit humankind. What cause(s) would receive funding and why?

this essay is for a gifted camp that my dad is making me apply for. the causes would be; lukemia,brest cancer and vulva cancer….. i have to be creative so i decided i wanted to put PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) as one of the causes….. but how does stoping animal cruelty help human kind? i may put for PETA something about benefits of vegetarianism…. HELP!!!!

ANSWER
You cannot group PETA with Cancer Research. PETA is AGAINST this sort of thing (because animals are sometimes used). You may also like to take a look at this episode of Penn and Teller’s Bullshit:

Or this article referring to PETA’s ludicrous campaign to change the name of FISH to Sea Kittens:

Or this website that PETA advertised on its Seakittens website:\

Yes…that is for a meat company…uh and yeah, PETA is supposedly against the consumption of ANY animal product…this is proof enough that they are only interested in money…their entire organisation seems to be a money-grabbing con.

You’re money would be better spent on searching for a cure for Cancer:
