Californians: Please Vote Yes on Prop 2


Absentee ballots are already being mailed out, so I really want to encourage those of you in California to vote YES on Proposition 2.

Read the facts here.

In essence, the propostion says "It is cruel and inhumane to confine animals in cages so small they can’t turn around or stretch their limbs. All animals deserve humane treatment, including those raised for food."

Farm animals deserve adequate living conditions, not confining cages along with unethical, inhumane practices.
Treating animals with respect also helps prevent disease.
Factory farm techniques aim to make money with disregard for proper animal care and in turn our health (read about Mad Cow disease and you'll get the picture).

Support your local farmer and demand proper animal welfare principles.
Vote YES on Prop 2.

In the UK we do have a lot of laws on how animals are raised. I'm all for there being minimum standards world wide as there is a market in meat export. I don't want to eat something which has been raised with a lower quality of life than it should have by moral law.
Well done Barb for raising this.
