Tell Congress to STOP the Rotten Egg Bill…H.R. 3798, S.B. 3239

Tell your Senator to OPPOSE Egg Products Inspection Act of 2012 (H.R. 3798 and S.B. 3239). This outrageous legislation must be stopped because it would decriminalize animal cruelty and establish egg factory cages as a national standard that could never be challenged or changed by state law or public vote. We need you to please contact your Senators and Representative TODAY in order to stop this dangerous bill.

Why is the ASPCA in the slaughter business?
From the ASPCA Press Release: The ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to AnimalsĀ®) today announced a $151,100 grant to Farm Forward that will be used to promote humane poultry welfare at Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch in Lindsborg, Kan. Good Shepherd, which is run by farmer Frank Reese, raises pasture-based, vegetarian-fed heritage breed chickens and turkeys free of unnecessary antibiotics in spacious, welfare-friendly conditions.”
If you think it is wrong for the ASPCA to be in the business of funding and promoting animal slaughter and pretending that a factory farm is NOT a factory farm and doing nothing to promote truly compassionate animal care and compassionate eating, let them know, and while you’re at it, ask them where and how the birds are being slaughtered, since they forgot to mention that part in the press release.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
