Breast milk ice cream?

This is just disgusting! PETA wants Ben & Jerry's to stop getting their milk from cows and begin using human breast milk in their ice cream.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) says doing this would reduce the suffering of cows and give ice cream lovers a healthier product. (Reduce the suffering of cows???? Do they suffer when they’re milked???)

Does PETA think women are just going to hand over their breast milk for free? Just imagine an entire warehouse of women hooked up to breast pumps, sitting there for hours at a time. If that’s not cruel and (very) unusual punishment, I don’t know what is. And not only is that image disturbing, but would also prove to be pretty costly. Think about it PETA.

THANKFULLY the idea was not well received by Ben & Jerry's officials. "We applaud PETA's novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother's milk is best used for her child," spokesman Sean Greenwood.

I SECOND THAT NOTION! I would hate to have to give up my ice cream, but the second they mix it with human breast milk…..I am going cold turkey! NO WAY in the world am I consuming something that came out of another woman’s breast!
