Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Make Slaughterhouses Transparent

Jedediah Purdy, law professor at Duke and the author of "The Meaning of Property: Freedom, Community, and the Legal Imagination", shares why his undercover investigation of a slaughterhouse in 1999, if done today, would probably earn him a criminal conviction and land him on a registry of "animal and ecological terrorists" due to the so-called Ag-gag bills. Purdy suggests animal agriculture should make slaughterhouses more transparent if truly they have nothing to hide.

Please visit Open the Slaughterhouses:
If slaughterhouses were more transparent about their business, more people would refuse to eat animal products. However, transparency is something consumers should not expect from such an industry. After all, the less consumers know, the better it is for the industry, and sadly, the worse for God’s Creation.
