Ban the use of gestational cages for pigs

This petition had 1,582 supporters


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill Friday, November 28, 2014 that would have banned crates that severely limit the mobility of pregnant pigs, a move that will win favor with Iowa farmers and spark more speculation about Christie's presidential aspirations but cause outrage among animal rights activists who pushed for the ban.

Critics consider the small metal crates a form of animal cruelty -- the pigs aren't able to turn around in the limited space -- but advocates say they prevent sows from accidentally lying down or stepping on piglets.
