Known for controversial and shocking methods of getting their word across, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) plans on erecting a billboard in Sacramento featuring the image of a person about to put a pork chop into the microwave next to a picture of a loving mother pig and reads, "Everybody's Somebody's Baby. Go Vegan." WIth an obvious nod to a particularly gruesome story, PETA came up with the tasteless plan after a Sacramento woman was arrested this week for allegedly microwaving her 6-week-old baby to death.
"We're horrified at the thought of microwaving a helpless baby and hope that this billboard will open hearts and minds to the grief of other mothers who have their babies torn away from them simply to satisfy humans' fleeting taste sensations," crocodile tears PETA founder Ingrid E. Newkirk. "All infants, not just our own, deserve protection, and pigs, like cows and other animals, mourn the loss of their young when they are taken away to be eaten."
Ka Yang, 29, of Sacramento was arrested on Tuesday, accused of killing her 6-week-old daughter by putting her in the microwave. Yang was booked at the Sacramento County Main Jail. She is being held without bail.
