ACLU Against Ag-Gag Bills

The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU, a non-partisan charity dedicated to defending the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution, has come out strongly against the so-called Ag-Gag bills, introduced in 17 states so far. The ACLU asserts that these laws are “flagrant violations of the First Amendment:, and is encouraging Americans to “protect animals and free speech” by fighting these efforts to hide cruel and often criminal practices from the public.
It’s about time.

About Franziska

I've been a vegetarian for almost 30 years now, since adopting my first dog, and vegan for more than 10. Why? The simplest and truest answer is that I love animals, and knowing what happens to them just to satisfy selfish human desires makes consuming any animal products impossible. I am a NARN Board member because its goals, beliefs, and ethics are mine, and because nothing is ever done that doesn't have only the animals at heart. There are no politics, no factions, no arguments, no personal motives. As for my favorite quote, it is beyond a doubt Ralph Waldo Emerson's "The purpose of life is not to be happy. The purpose of life is to be useful. To be useful, compassionate, honorable, and to have it matter that you lived."
