Omaima Aree Nelson Parole Condition Sought by PETA

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has written a letter to the warden of Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla asking that a condition be part of Omaima Aree Nelson's parole, should the state board grant the model-turned-cannibal wife's request today. 

See if you can figure out what that condition entails before I reveal it after the jump . . .

For the second time since 2006, Nelson is seeking parole from the state prison system that has been holding her since she was convicted in 1991 of killing her husband in his Costa Mesa apartment and cooking and eating parts of his body.

The animal rights group is "requesting that the parole board make a flesh-free, vegan diet a permanent requirement of Nelson's parole, should it be granted," reads a statement from the Norfolk, Virginia-based organization.

 "PETA--pointing out that a vegan diet will help ensure that Nelson is no longer contributing to any needless violence and bloodlust--also requests that Nelson be served a vegan diet for the remainder of her sentence, however long that may be."

"Animals who are killed for their flesh experience pain and fear just as humans do," PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk explains. "If people are revolted by the idea of eating a human corpse, perhaps they should also lose their appetites at the thought of eating anyone's skinned and sautéed body parts."

Her organization's letter to warden Lydia Hense follows on the next page . . .
