PETA Goes After Michelle For Her Easter Eggs

white house egg rollBy Andrew Scot Bolsinger

Unhappy with the long tradition of presidential First Lady’s using real eggs for White House Easter Egg Roll, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals penned a long letter to Michelle Obama touting plastic eggs. It also went a step further, creating a video with children at turns chiding the first lady and encouraging her to make the switch.

The PETA video features “hopping mad” kids, who give Obama an earful about the use of real eggs for the annual tradition.

“Ms. Obama, we need to talk. Just because all the other first ladies have done it doesn’t mean you should. If all the other first ladies jumped off a bridge would you? You’re better than this,” the kids on the video say.

“Think for a second, how many chickens have to spend their whole lives in a cage to lay those eggs?”

I don’t care who started it. You’re ending it,” the say, offering a simple solution: plastic, reusable eggs.

PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk’s letter to Obama wasn’t quite as cute as the kids.

“I’m writing on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and our more than 3 million members and supporters to urge you, with all due respect, to use reusable plastic or ceramic eggs instead of hard-boiled chicken eggs at the White House Easter Egg Roll,” Newkirk wrote. “For chickens on egg factory farms, Easter is not a time of renewal or joy. It can take up to 34 hours in typically hellish conditions for a hen to produce just one of the thousands of eggs slated to be used at the Easter Egg Roll.”

The letter goes on to say that endorsing eggs goes against the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” initiative because of the cholesterol and saturated fat found in eggs, according to published reports.
