Animal Friends presents a new PETA ad which calls for a change in diet
- "Twilight" actress Christian Serratos calls for respecting life
Actress Christian Serratos of the Twilight saga is celebrating life in her latest ad with PETA, which will be published in Croatia by Animal Friends. Christian previously spoke up for animals by stating that she would rather go naked than wear fur, and now she is speaking out for animals killed for food.
With the new ad, Christian is urging us not to treat our bodies like graveyards and to respect life by choosing vegetarian meals. By eating vegetarian, Christian has more energy, helps combat environmental devastation, and saves animals used by the meat industry from a painful life and death.
Cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and other animals used by the meat industry die slowly and in pain. They are crowded onto trucks and transported over many miles through all weather extremes, typically without food or water, to the slaughterhouse. Those who survive this nightmarish journey will have their throats slit, often while they are still conscious.
Christian has been helping animals and PETA since she was 14 and says this about her switch to a vegetarian diet: "I just felt better and brighter and lighter, and I had more energy... It was a big deal to me, being an animal lover."
In the behind-the-scenes video from Christian's shoot, which Animal Friends translated and subtitled into Croatian, we can learn all the ways she is trying to get people involved, why she will never go to the circus, and how she came to realize that all animals are equal (www.youtube.com/afcroatia).
Thanks to PETA, the City Lights ad with Christian Serratos will be placed in Croatian towns too, carrying a clear message that each and every one of us can start helping animals, the environment and our health. Just like Christian did – we can start with vegetarianism.
Let us show respect to life and go vegetarian, or even better vegan. Our bodies do not need to be graveyards. Choose the dawning of our conscience and make our life and the lives of others more beautiful.
