PETA's Statement about Ben & Jerry's to use breast milk?
In a statement today Tracy Reiman told WVEC13 news that babies should drink breast milk. Ice cream and formula should be made from soy. That she had children and she breast fed her children. PETA's Headquarters is located here in Hampton Roads you can't go anywhere that you don't hear or see something or someone about PETA. When they first opened it was crazy in the Downtown and Ghent area's of Norfolk people didn't know what to think about these folks. Sometimes I think they still don't know what to think of these folks.
-- Norfolk-based People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is suggesting that ice cream be made with human breast milk instead of cow milk.
PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman made the suggestion in a letter sent to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, co-founders of Vermont-based Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream. In the letter, Reiman said the idea is based on plans by a restaurant in Switzerland that is set to unveil a menu that includes food made with at least 75 percent breast milk.
Reiman says cows only produce milk right before and after pregnancy, so they are forcibly impregnated every nine months.
