Essay on animal rights

By Katharine Swan On Tuesday, December 18, 2007 At 3:35 PM

Last week, I posted a video on animal testing, in honor of PETA's boycott of Mars candy.

The email and video inspired me to write a personal essay on animal testing and animal rights. Though I'm not normally a fan of giving away my work, I decided to go ahead and post my essay on Associated Content. Though I'll get a pittance for pageviews ($1.50 per 1000 views), it's not really enough to count, so I'm considering this my donation to a cause I feel strongly about. Goodness only knows, if Associated Content is good for anything, it's visibility!

If you are interested in checking out my essay, you can find it here:

Mars Vs. Peta: Is Animal Testing Wrong?

And because I don't want to seem like those lowlifes who spam others for pageviews, I am also submitting the essay to When it's live I'll post that link here, too, so that you can decide for yourself whether or not you want to contribute to my page views. We're talking one-sixth of a cent here, folks, so don't worry about hurting my feelings if you hate AC and would rather not click. What I care about is getting the word out about the PETA video and the Mars boycott.

Update 12/20/2007: Sadly, refused to publish my essay because they claim it's libelous. Ha! You can read more about it here.
