PETA OFFERS TO HELP SCOTTISH AMBULANCE SERVICE TAKE A LOAD OFF WITH RACY VEGAN NURSE ADS
Vegans Are Slimmer, Healthier and Easier to Transport Than Meat-Eaters, Says Group
Edinburgh – This morning, PETA sent a letter to Pauline Howie, chief executive of the Scottish Ambulance Service, offering to place free sexy pro-vegan ads on the side of the group’s ambulances. PETA’s offer comes in the wake of reports that the ambulance service has been one of many across the UK to buy expensive new equipment – costing more than £3.5 million – in order to accommodate larger patients. The adverts feature a nurse whose image would help revive anyone who’s feeling under the weather and read, “Lighten Your Load – Go Vegan. Vegans Are 10 to 20 Pounds Slimmer Than Meat-Eaters” (a mock-up of the artwork is available here).
“Our proposal is a win-win situation: potential patients will get the point that a vegan diet is better for their health, and Scottish ambulance services will avoid the additional financial strain of buying equipment for bigger patients”, says PETA Campaign Coordinator Kirsty Henderson. “The best thing that anyone can do to keep the ambulance at bay and help animals is to go vegan.”
In its letter, PETA points out that vegans are more likely to be healthy than people who consume meat and dairy foods and that a pure vegetarian or vegan diet can be a safe way to lose excess weight. In addition, every person who goes vegan spares many animals from the cruelty of factory farming and slaughter – including saving chickens, turkeys and other animals from having their throats cut and piglets from having the tips of their teeth and their tails cut off without any pain relief.
