What does PETA say about potentially lifesaving medical testing?
PETA President Ingrid Newkirk told Vogue that "Even if animal tests produced a cure for AIDS, we'd be against it."
PETA made a $5000 cash payment to Josh Harper, a leader of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, a violent extremist group that intimidated, threatened, and attacked people affiliated with a medical research facility.
The head of the anti-animal testing animal rights group the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) was formerly president of The PETA Foundation.
PETA awarded a grant of over $70,000 to Rodney Coronado, who was then accused and later convicted of arson against a Michigan research facility.
PETA solicited volunteers to infiltrate facilities as "behind-the-scenes heroes for the animals."
