Do you have 20 seconds to help end horrific cruelty to animals in New Jersey?
On November 19, the New Jersey Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee is expected to consider an important bill—A.3250—which would outlaw gestation crates for pregnant pigs, one of the cruelest forms of institutionalized animal abuse in existence. An identical bill has already passed by an overwhelming majority in the state senate.
Please take action now to help ensure this important animal protection bill passes!
On modern factory farms, pregnant pigs are confined in filthy gestation crates, where they are unable to freely turn around, breathe fresh air, lie down comfortably, walk, run, play, see natural light, or engage in other natural behaviors.
Confining pigs in gestation crates is so patently cruel, the practice has been banned by the entire European Union, New Zealand, and the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, and Rhode Island.
With your help, New Jersey can become the 10th state in the nation to ban inherently cruel gestation crates.
