NOTHING NEEDED HERE
For years, advocates have been urging state legislators to ban the cruel confinement of pigs and calves in crates in New Jersey. This legislative session, an important bill has been reintroduced, and your legislators’ support is essential.
A.1970/S.1298 would ban the use of cruel gestation crates and veal crates in the Garden State. Ask your state legislators to co-sponsor A.1970/S.1298 now.
Gestation crates virtually immobilize pregnant pigs. Barely larger than a mother pig’s body, these crates prevent the animals from turning around or taking more than one step forward or backward. This lack of movement causes muscle and bone deterioration that often leads to painful injuries. Veal crates are similarly cruel. Within days or even hours of birth, calves raised for veal are taken from their mothers and locked in these crates, which are so small the animals can barely move.
You have a powerful voice. Together, we will create a kinder food system.
