Over the years I have signed many petitions against the cruelty involved in factory farming. I have learned that the sad reality is there are no federal laws protecting the farm animals. Without enforceable laws the animals that fall victim to factory farming are subjected to hideous abuse and brutal death. Recently, I joined a group of activists and gave water to pigs that were arriving to a slaughterhouse in Los Angeles. They were piled in trucks and hadn’t been given food or water for days. They were treated like inanimate objects. We were on street and still heard their screams from inside the slaughterhouse. They haunt me still.
Pigs are intelligent social animals. They are very aware. They are confined in cages that restrict their movement. They are forced to endure being shipped in trucks without food or water. They eventually end their short painful lives with a violent death at a slaughterhouse. I don’t eat meat. However, you don’t need to be a vegetarian or vegan to agree that pigs should be provided with food, water, and space to move around and interact with each other, without being subjected to fear and pain.
It’s time to push for laws protecting the pigs from abuse. It’s time to hold factory farming accountable for the treatment of the pigs.
Congressman Brad Sherman, we commend you on your proven track record as an advocate for animal rights. We are asking you to introduce a bill protecting pigs from abuse in factory farming. Profits and efficiency are not justification for inflicting pain and suffering on intelligent sentient beings. Please stand up for the pigs that are tortured every day.
