More Looniness from PETA

"... PETA launched a new "Sex Talk" commercial Monday drawing a link between unwanted teen pregnancies and animal spaying and neutering...and they're airing it in Jamie Lynn Spears' hometown.

The 30-second ad features parents who encourage their daughters to become sexually active. When one daughter asks her mother, "What if I get pregnant?" she responds with "pop out all the kids you can" and says, "If it has a pulse, you should be wrapped around it!"

The ad will air twice a day through Friday during "Good Morning America" in Kentwood, La., where the Spears family resides.

Spears, the 16-year-old sister of Britney and star of "Zoey 101," sparked controversy last month when she announced she was pregnant.

PETA's president Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a statement, "Just as Lynne Spears is under scrutiny because of her underage daughter's pregnancy, people who fail to spay and neuter their animals should also be feeling the heat."

The commercial concludes with, "Parents shouldn't act this way. Neither should people with dogs and cats. Always spay or neuter." (source)

I completely agree that people should be more responsible with their pets and should spay/neuter them, but PETA always obscures their message. I don't get that. By comparing animal treatment to the Holocaust (which they've done), by having spokeswomen like Pink who cry about fur while wearing a Pro-Choice shirt and now this...who can take anything they do seriously?
