Radio story on factory farming

Voice of America has recently released a six-minute radio story about factory farming and the issues surrounding it. The story includes interviews with The Humane Society of the United States, Farm Sanctuary, Humane Farm Animal Care, and the Animal Agriculture Alliance.

Among the topics discussed are battery cages, gestation crates, and the federal Farm Animal Stewardship Purchasing Act. It is evident from the story that the factory farming industry representatives pretend to show concern for their animals and reassure the public that they care very much about their welfare. Otherwise, they state, the animals would be sick, which would compromise the food supply.

Factory farming officials keep trying to mislead the public regarding the suffering of the animals, the lack of safety of the food derived from them, and the way this industry pollutes the environment. Thanks to many organizations such as HSUS, Farm Sanctuary, PETA, CVA and others, the reality of factory farming is coming to light.

Everyone has the right to know that antibiotics and hormones maintain farm animals alive in spite of their pain and suffering. The callousness of the factory farming industry is undeniable and regrettable. God’s will calls for compassion towards all creatures and a plant-based diet is a true expression of it.
