Agriculture Industry Pushes To Make Undercover Filming Of Farm Animal Abuse Illegal

I'm sorry. This is all a big misdirect.

Going vegan is the only way to assure that animals are not treated this way. Not cameras, not welfare laws, not larger crates or sharper neck slitting blades or any of the other red herrings out there. If you truly care about animals, in addition to your health and the environmen­t, go vegan. Putting a camera, (or undercover investigat­or), in every slaughterh­ouse in the world to make sure animals are stroked and calmed and not kicked in the face if they can't walk is like putting a band aid on a broken bone. It may make you feel good to do it but it's not going to stop anything.

If you care about animal cruelty, stop killing and eating them.

Go Vegan.

I understand what you're saying, but here's my opinion, for what it's worth. The more people who are exposed to the horrors that occur in places like that, the better for the Vegan cause. It was under-cover videos (like the ones they're trying to criminalize) that finally convinced me to become Vegan.

Hi Scott,
I'm glad that you made the decision to become a vegan after seeing the videos.
I believe that you are the exception to the rule, however. Most people seeing those videos, from what I've read, have a reaction of, "We need to stop this horrifying abuse of animals," rather than going vegan.

That bolsters the welfarist argument regarding better treatment for the animals as opposed to the vegan message which, I believe, will result in the reduction of animals killed for food.

If we stop killing them we no longer have to worry about how we treat them as they won't be there to mis-treat.

Thanks for reading the blog. Your comments are always welcome.
