AMAZING WIN FOR PIGS IN US SUPREME COURT!!!
The High Court banned the sale of meat from pig gestation crates: small, incredibly cruel crates where pigs who are among the most intelligent creatures cannot turn around or even scratch themselves or take care of their babies. Pig factory farms everywhere must now dismantle crates in order to sell in California.
This High Court ruling opened the doors for MA, FL, AZ, ME, MI, OR and RI that also have gestation crate bans.
This is a MASSIVE VICTORY for pigs and the Nonhuman Rights movement. The US Supreme Court upheld a proposition passed overwhelmingly by California voters that bans the sale of meat from pig gestation crates. This is a HUGE victory as California is the world’s fifth largest economy. Pig factory farms everywhere must now dismantle crates in order to sell in California despite the fact that pork producers challenged Proposition 12 in court for five years.
The High Court upheld an animal welfare law approved by California’s voters, ruling that the state’s restrictions on the sale of pork that is produced by the cruel
confinement of breeding pigs do not violate the Constitution. This ruling is an amazing Victory for Nonhuman Rights advocates as well as the rights of the states to set their own laws. The National Pork Producers Council said the law would require farmers in Iowa (that sells most of its products to California) and North Carolina (that has a tremendous presence of pigs farms) to change how they raise and confine these intelligent, sentient nonhuman beings.
LET’S GOOOO!!! LET’S NOT QUIT FIVE MINUTES BEFORE THE MIRACLE!!!
