A very happy 70th birthday to Paul McCartney!

The former Beatle and animal-rights crusader received a special celebratory card from PETA UK re-creating the famous Abbey Road cover. This time, however, instead of the Fab 4, we see a fish, pig, chicken and cow carrying signs that spell out ‘Happy Birthday, Paul! Thank You for Loving Us.’

McCartney, a vegetarian for over 40 years, has been a huge supporter of the animal rights org – as well as a founder of the successful “Meatless Mondays” campaign and author of a vegetarian cookbook.

“PETA couldn’t be happier to celebrate Paul’s birthday”, says PETA Manager Mimi Bekhechi. “He has done so much to help animals during his legendary career, and we can’t think of a person more deserving of celebration.”

PETA UK will also be distributing free copies of its “Glass Walls” DVD, narrated by McCartney, to any fans that might gather on Abbey Road and in Liverpool to honor the musician.

You can see an interview with Paul on his involvement in the narration of “Glass Walls” below.

    I have always respected Paul as a musician. However I feel the he along with many other entertainers have be “bought” by PETA, SSCS and other similar organizations either directly or indirectly through their managers. Involvement in any issue demands a commitment with regards to a basic understanding of its economic, social and environmental dimensions. I still remember Paul’s participation in the Canada seal harvest when he was debating Premier Danny Williams in a CBC forum. Paul thought he was in Newfoundland, but only to told by the premier that he was sitting in a CBC station in Prince Edward Island, another Province, almost 1000 kilometers from the front!

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
