Proposition 12, the Farm Animal Confinement Initiative – a yes vote supports banning the sale of meat from calves raised for veal confined to less than 43 sf per calf and breeding pigs confined to less than 24 sf per pigand eggs from hens confined to areas less than 1 sf per hen.
We would like to see an end to all animal suffering and while Prop 12 is not perfect, it IS a step in the right direction to improve the lives of these farm animals that have been treated only as money making commodities by the industry and kept in horrific, unsanitary conditions.
The factory farming industry that is responsible for the unnecessary animal cruelty in order to maximize their own profits is the opposition with The Association of California Egg Farmers and National Pork Producers Councilspending the most.
I urge everyone to please vote ‘YES’ on Prop 12. – Cindy Landon, Passionate Activist for Animal Rights
