PETA Wants

Sharon Stone's Brain

for Research

7/3/2008 1:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PETA has offered to front the bill if Sharon Stone will get a brain scan, to determine if her insensitivity is caused by an underdeveloped prefrontal region of her brain.


In a letter to Stone, obtained by TMZ, PETA prez Ingrid Newkirk says "We are used to the indifference that you flaunt and the callous remarks that you make..." Newkirk mentions that whole China thing as well as comments about animals.

PETA makes an offer to pay for a brain scan "to determine if comments and actions that seem to demonstrate a lack of empathy are the result of a physical defect."

You may recall, Sharon Stone is famously in "Total Recall," so she may be able to get a brain scan discount and underwent brain surgery in 2001.

obviously this is just meant to make her think about what she says before she opens her big mouth, i seriously hope they wouldn't WASTE A$$TRONOMICAL AMOUNTS OF $$$ on such a useless endeavor!!!!

especially when that money SHOULD BE USED TOWARD ACTUALLY HELPING NEEDY, INJURED, AND ABANDONED ANIMALS.

i do not give money to 'animal charities' because i question how much of it actually goes directly to caring for the animals who NEED IT. instead, i take it upon myself to help out animals i encounter in my own life who need assistance. i live below the poverty level, but i still will feed stray cats who were abandoned by the morons who 'adopted' them here on the indian reservation where i live. it is a rampant problem, and daily i see animals who need help and i do what i can, even if it's just to let them know that NOT ALL HUMAN BEINGS ARE CRUEL, GREEDY, AND SELFISH... because that is how most people act around here - it is a disgrace to the Mohawk Tribe and the connection we are supposed to have to earth and its creatures.

people from all walks of life need to look around them and see what they can do to help these poor creatures who are suffering because of human beings' actions, or lack thereof. i honestly have more sympathy for animals than i ever will for most human beings - we are in a position to consciously change the way we behave and how we treat each other - but we probably never will, because we are a cancer on this earth and each other. go ahead, go out and do something good and unselfish and PROVE ME WRONG. i'd love that.

i cannot always adopt all the animals i come across in need, nor can i always catch and spay/neuter all the strays, but the least i can do is bring a new litter of kittens to a no-kill shelter in the hopes they will be adopted by someone who truly cares and has the means to care for them properly.

there are simple things people can do to help animals DIRECTLY without giving money to 'charities' that more often than not waste donated money on 'publicity' ....even if you are dirt poor like me!

Everyone needs to watch Penn and Teller's B.S. episode on PETA. Talk about a bunch of hypocrites.....one quick story. They're against using animals for medical research, yet the number two PETA woman had a procedure and knowingly continues to use meds (kidney problem) tested on animals. When asked about the hypocrisy, her response was that it's OK for her, because she was put here to help animals! Good grief! It gets worse -- check the episode out asap. You won't believe these PETA creeps. Apparently her life is more meaningful than the rest of the population.

Someone needs to stop this woman. She is a threat to herself
and all those around her. This woman has been exalted for too long.
She is a pontificating, arrogant, has been.
Wearing fur is cruel. Anyone that does has not seen a video of how these animals
are skinned alive, or anally electrocuted.
This woman has gone off the deep end on many levels.
Who else would have the balls to ask P Diddy why he wasn't donating more
to a charity, was it because he was out buying crack she asked?
The woman needs to be layed to rest.

The backbone of the American Constitution is the right to choose. The right to choose what is right for ourselves as long as it is not against the law.

Just because PETA or Pam Anderson or anyone else PREFERS not to eat meat or wear animal products, that is their constitutional right and privilege to do so.

What PETA doesn't get is the fact that their preferences have absolutely no bearing (nor should they) on what anyone else chooses to do. You cannot run around being ham-fisted as PETA has been and attempt to strong-arm the American public, or any individual into bowing to your preferences or your wishes. PETA has no right to.

If PETA members don't want to eat meat, then that's fine with me. If they want to harass me because I do, then they have overstepped their bounds. Their harassment, bullying, publicity tactics and physical assaults make them no better than common street thugs.

TMZ, check out your last sentence: "You may recall, Sharon Stone is famously in "Total Recall," so she may be able to get a brain scan discount and underwent brain surgery in 2001."

That doesn't even make sense. Proof read before posting!

Did it ever occur to PETA that maybe it's just that Sharon is as dum as a sack of hammers?
