More Never-Before-Seen Footage Released
Cramming pigs inside crates barely larger than the animals themselves for nearly their entire lives is simply unacceptable, and the majority of Americans agree. In 2018, Californians overwhelmingly voted into law a ballot initiative that prohibited the in-state production or sale of pork from pigs confined in a cruel manner. But the meat industry aimed to silence these voters by challenging the law in federal court, and the dispute reached the Supreme Court of the United States.
Fortunately, the Supreme Court has affirmed the dismissal of claims against Prop 12.
This is a huge victory for animals, and it’s thanks to you! Please take a moment to celebrate this accomplishment
The next crucial step in strengthening protection for animals is to pass federal legislation that places the responsibility of beginning to solve various problems in the U.S. food system where it belongs—with the corporations and agribusinesses that have created them.
‘‘It was like she realized she was trapped in a never-ending nightmare.’’
She had just given birth a few days before. Some of her babies were born dead, and the others were taken away. But her suffering wouldn’t end there. Yet again, she was crammed into a “gestation crate”—a metal cage barely larger than her body—unable to walk, lie down comfortably, or even turn around.
Day-Old Piglet Mutilated
He suffered painful mutilations, such as castration and tail docking, without any anesthesia or pain relief. Then at just a few days old, he was taken from his mother and thrown into a truck.
Your voice matters.
Urge your members of Congress to support the Industrial Agriculture Accountability Act and help countless farmed animals.
Read the petition
Support the Industrial Agriculture Accountability Ac
As your constituent, I respectfully request that you co-sponsor the Industrial Agriculture Accountability Act.
This legislation addresses a wide range of inexcusably exploitative and cruel practices in our food system and the need for effective federal oversight.
I am disheartened to know that my tax dollars foot the bill for extreme animal cruelty and exploitation.
Thank you for considering my request.
