SAMPLE LETTER | SOURCE LCA

Please know that citizens do not want any Ag Gag Laws to become constitutional as it is a repression of free speach rights.

Ag Gag or “whistleblower suppression” laws allow animal enterprises to get away with animal abuse, food safety violations, workplace safety violations, and countless environmental hazards.

The farm industry and the American Legislative Exchange Council are behind the latest Ag Gag bills being introduced in state legislatures nationwide. The purpose of these bills is to criminalize acts related to investigating the day-to-day activities of industrial (factory) farms and other animal enterprises, including the recording, possession or distribution of photos, video and/or audio. Such investigations have been instrumental in animal cruelty prosecutions and spurred reforms to protect the safety of the nation’s food supply. The bills threaten not only to cover up horrific animal abuse and food safety issues, but also other illegal environmental and labor violations. The animals need to be protected and the American people have a right to know how food is produced.

Free speech is a constitutional right; it is an outrage that laws are being passed to stifle it!

Please vote against Ag Gag Laws.


these so called
laws are just a way,
for sadism and those
who practice it,
to have their legal
play.
we must put a
stop to this
TODAY!

    Ag-gag laws are an affront to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press. They are basically legalizing animal abuse and criminalizing catching abusers. The states that already have this law are full of weasels. You need to contact your state political a-holes and demand this go away. Then vote every slimebag out of office who voted for this unconstitutional protectionism. It is disgusting.

      I completely agree, Ellen, it is dangerous and destructive. It legalizes animal abuse and destroys freedom of speech. This is nothing but pure hell for animal and those who defend them using means of demonstrating the abuse.
