People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is coming under fire from the Center for Consumer Freedom in a new ad running in the San Francisco Chronicle.  While animal research has resulted in progress fighting HIV/AIDS and other diseases, PETA opposes this critical medical tool. PETA president Ingrid Newkirk has stated, "Even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we'd be against it." PETA has also attacked charities such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital that utilize animal research in the search for cures.

Animal research has a lengthy history of producing innovative and effective results, boasting the polio vaccine and modern anesthetics among its accomplishments. "PETA's radical agenda puts lab rats ahead of sick kids, spouses, friends, and grandparents," remarked CCF managing director Will Coggin. "Hopefully one day scientists can find a cure for PETA's lunacy."

The Center for Consumer Freedom, a nonprofit, defends the rights of the American consumer to have a wide variety of options to choose from. CCF opposes PETA's agenda to dictate lifestyle to other people. PETA is not just against animal research that can help people (and animals), but it wants to prohibit people from enjoying a hamburger, visiting a zoo or aquarium, wearing wool or leather, and even owning a pet.
