NOTHING NEEDED HERE
In 2018, California voters passed Proposition 12, making extreme confinement of laying hens, pregnant pigs, and calves used for veal illegal. But now the meat industry is trying to undo these protections.
On October 11, the Supreme Court of the United States will hear oral arguments on NPPC v. Ross, a lawsuit brought by the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) and American Farm Bureau Federation challenging California’s Proposition 12.
Regardless of the NPPC v. Ross outcome, the public has made its opposition to extreme animal confinement abundantly clear. This is why it’s time for a federal law that guarantees basic protections for farmed animals. There’s no excuse for making farmed animals suffer in crates and cages. Join Mercy For Animals in urging Congress to protect farmed animals in the Farm Bill.
