Animal Abuse Video Ban Bill SHELVED!

Good news!

The proposed law that would have banned animal rights activists from secretly infiltrating factory farms and documenting the horrendous animal abuse there has been shelved for now.

"DES MOINES, Iowa -- Efforts to outlaw the undercover recording of animal abuse in livestock operations appear to have stalled in Iowa and other states in the face of complaints that the proposals were intended primarily to protect the industry with little concern for animals' welfare.

A measure to punish those who make secret videos initially appeared to be sailing through the Iowa Legislature, but after clearing the state House it has sputtered out in the Senate and appears dead for this session. Similar measures also have faltered in Minnesota, Florida and New York."

This is awesome. As one activist put it, "A good farm has nothing to hide."

A spotlight needs to be focused directly on the heinous evil that takes place at some/most of these farms so that animals have a voice and a chance at being treated respectfully.

Just because an animal is doomed to be killed and eaten for food doesn't mean it has to live a life of abuse first.

WARNING: This will make you sick. However, it may also cause you to have an awareness shift and think twice about condoning such behavior.
