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
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.
