Bill to Ban Gestation Crates and Veal Crates in MA

A hearing on a bill to ban gestation crates and veal crates in Massachusetts took place earlier this month during which 3 kids testified in behalf of farmed animals. The hyper-confinement of farmed animals (such as gestation crates and veal crates) is standard procedure in factory farms and animals suffer greatly emotionally, psychologically and physically under these conditions.

There are no factory farms in Massachusetts and animal advocates would like factory farms to stay away if possible. If the bill is passed, offenders would be fined $1000 dollars and face jail time for up to 6 months. To read the article please visit Kids Testify on Animal Confinement Ban:

It would seem common sense for Christians to support bills that ban cruelty of God’s animals, since we all called to show compassion and mercy to all creatures. It is our hope that Massachusetts passes this bill and that all states would follow. The world will know no peace unless we stop the relentless exploitation of sentient beings.
