Banning Gestation Crates for Pigs

Governor Christie,

We, the people of New Jersey and elsewhere, are sickened by your reluctance and down-right vetoing of the Bill to allow pigs to be free-roaming animals as they were born to be, and kept for years in boxes and crates, too small for some pigs to even turn over or around in them. You called this bill, "a solution in search of a problem." That makes absolutely no sense! You also instructed supporters of this bill to "bring real New Jersey issues to be discussed." Sir, we the people DO believe this to be a very REAL issues, and we are the voice of these animals. We the people of New Jersey also agree with the Humane Society who said your veto was a "cynical political calculation," and we demand rights for these living animals, not support of money-making  cruel tactics.
