Here's a link to the article:

Doctors are under pressure to report her parents
to the police.


I once knew a rabid vegan that was so incredibly dogmatic and reactionary
she utterly refused to take any calcium supplements because at one point in
the calcium molecules billion year history it was part of an animal's bone
or a sea creature's shell. This despite the fact that her bones were
extremely brittle and probably looked like Swiss cheese. Vitamin D
supplements were absolutely out of the question too as it was impossible to
*know* that the supplement did not contain some microscopic quantity of
glycerin.

Seriously. You can't imagine the lengths those idiots go to maintain what
they consider "ethical" eating habits. They are seriously ill people.

Glycerin is a vegetable product.

Possibly he meant gelatin...

A radio commentator (KGO, San Francisco) the other day was talking with
a guest who somewhat of an animal activist. He mentioned a few years
back, interviewing the then head of the PETArds, and asking her if,
hypothetically, she would sacrifice a single animal to save 10,000 human
lives. She emphatically said she would not.

I've sacrificed thousands of animals just so I could eat happily.
Some PETA's would personally murder people just to save an animal.

Yet they complain about trying to preserve species rapidly going extinct
because the methods used are not "natural." I tell ya, it is a disease.

that's pretty damn funny considering that PETA takes
perfectly adoptable dogs & cats from no-kill shelters and
euthanizes them.

So doesn't she realize that the atoms in her body were once part of
another animal's body? Even if she eats only plants and her mom ate
only plants while she was pregnant with her there's no way of knowing
whether or not a plant is carrying an atom or molecule from some
animal that could have died hundreds, thousands, or millions of years
ago.

My point exactly and that goes for any other element in your body like iron,
magnesium, potassium etc. If you really want to get romantic you can
imagine those elements all being part of a star at one time. It is complete
insanity what some of those idiots do in pursuit of their bizarre quest for
absolute perfection and food purity. It is one thing to do it to yourself
though and quite another to inflict it on a victim that has no means to
protect themselves.
