Some years ago, back before large numbers of Americans understood the wholesale deception and backward philosophies of groups like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), we did our part to set the record straight with easy-to-read primers on both groups. Called “7 Things You Didn’t Know,” these sheets were downloaded and read by millions. Today we’re giving these resources a much-needed update, and also introducing a third guide: “7 Things You Didn’t Know About the Humane Society of the United States” (HSUS).

Why go through all the trouble to spell out what’s wrong with three of the most vocal and radical animal-liberation groups in America? Because someone has to do it.
Today’s animal rights movement has never wavered from its ultimate aim: the complete abolition of a long list of consumer choices that most Americans enjoy. These include meat, dairy foods, hunting, fishing, zoos, aquariums, circuses, rodeos, fur, leather, wool, and silk. Activists even want to do away with vital medical research that uses animals—the very lifesaving work that will one day cure AIDS and cancer.
Inch by inch, groups like PETA, PCRM, and HSUS continue to advance toward a society that views human beings as no different from (and no more important than) barnyard livestock and lab rats.
But a little knowledge can be a powerful thing. Share these “7 things you didn’t know” resources with a friend, a family member, your government officials, or even your community’s newspaper or TV news team. Then just sit back and watch the light of truth do its thing.
