Question of the day: will Michelle Obama wear fur on Inauguration Day? At least that’s the question our friends over at the Humane Society are asking.
Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the HSUS, has just published a blog entry asking the soon-to-be first lady to go fur-free and offering “fantastic alternatives if she has the least bit of temptation.”
Pacelle writes: “Like Jackie Kennedy, Michelle Obama represents generational change from her predecessors—and it’s a generation far more attuned to animal protection concerns. It is my fervent hope that Michelle Obama sets the right example for all of her admirers by not wearing fur on Inauguration Day, or on any day for that matter.”
So far the Obama’s have adopted a rescued dog, acknowledged the global destruction occuring at the hands of factory farming, and encouraged children to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Therefore I have the utmost confidence that when it comes to cruelty, Michelle Obama will just say NO!
