Contact your Congressional Representative and tell them to OPPOSE the Egg Products Inspection Act of 2012. This legislation would decriminalize animal cruelty by establishing "enriched" egg farm factory cages as a national standard that could never be challenged or changed by state law or public vote.
Contact your U.S. Representative
INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
The position of the Humane Farming Association and other responsible activists and organizations remains clear:
Cruelty is cruelty.
There is no such thing as an "enriched" battery cage.
No humane organization should ever endorse these abusive confinement systems.
Our state laws and voting rights must not be given away.
