A quote from PETA: "The fact that human adults consume huge quantities of dairy products made from milk that was meant for a baby cow just doesn't make sense," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Everyone knows that 'the breast is best,' so Ben & Jerry's could do consumers and cows a big favor by making the switch to breast milk."
Now don't get me wrong, all of my friends know what a huge advocate for breastfeeding I am, but come on! Isn't this taking animal rights a little too far? How do they think they are going to get all of that breast milk? Do they think all of the lactating mother's of the world would be willing to donate their precious milk? Do they envision those mother's shipping off a bottle or two each day that they pumped? When I was nursing, I called that "liquid gold" and it was not going anywhere but to my baby, who it was made and intended for! No way would I back then pump a bottle for baby, then pump a bottle for Ben & Jerry's. It was a pain enough to pump for my own baby!
Sorry if I offended anyone, but I just couldn't believe my ears today when I was listening to the news. I hope you all got a chuckle out of this like I did!
