Five More States Consider ‘Ag Gag’ Laws To Silence Factory Farm Whistleblowers

Apparently it is easier to hide the problem instead of taking the time and effort, and money, to fix it.

By Aviva Shen on Feb 26, 2013 at 5:15 pm

As state legislatures begin their 2013 sessions, a flurry of new “ag gag” bills to protect factory farms from potential undercover whistleblowers have been introduced in 5 states. This week, the Indiana Senate is debating a proposal to criminalize taking photographs or videos inside an agricultural or industrial operation without permission.

Senate Bill 373 is the first of two ag gag bills introduced during Indiana’s 2013 session. New Hampshire, Nebraska, Wyoming and Arkansas are also considering them.

Since trespassing is already illegal, ag gag laws can only have one clear motive: to punish whistleblowers, advocates, and investigative reporters who use undercover recordings to reveal the abysmal conditions in which our food is produced. Undercover investigations have captured factory farms all over the country abusing livestock, passing off sick cattle as healthy, and discharging unregulated amounts of animal manure, which the US Geological Survey identified as the largest source of nitrogen pollution in the country.

This is sickening, on so many levels.

Bad things don't happen if you can't see them. =(

Really glad to be vegan.  It seems like these laws are in direct conflict with our first admendment rights.  Free speech and freedom of the press.   I hope these gag laws are actually in responce to factory farm corporations feeling the loss of their market share due to success by animal rights groups and others who have gotten the truth out.  I hope they are feeling the pressure of the truth as more and more people decide to remove these animal products from their lives. 

This is one industry that has no Legitimate claim to benifit, humanity or the enviroment.  With the human health costs and evironmental destruction caused by these animal product industries.  They would collapes over night if they had to pay for the damage they do, and their goverment subsidies were withdrawn.  

I'm surprised that those who do eat meat aren't complaining as loudly as those that don't. There is nothing healthy about this food supply. If an animal isn't eating and living as it should do naturally, then they're eating death.

Besides the immorality, the health concerns should be on top of everyone's list. 

Unfortunately humans are too stupid as a species to change their behavior until the health issues are upon them. This is not only with eating but also other risky behaviors such as tobacco addiction, etc. It's human psychology, unfortunately. Combine this with the fact that the food industry uses powerful marketing to dupe people into thinking that all of this crappy food is actually good for them, in addition to tasty, and you have the perfect storm. Think about sugared soda, for example. People are happily drinking extra calories that lead to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, rotten teeth, etc. And when someone like Mayor Bloomberg tries to impose limits on soda sizes, all hell breaks lose because freedom blah blah blah blah. And people buy this marketing without any critical thought.

As far as animal suffering and the environmental issues, for most people, out of sight is out of mind.  Which is why exposing the cruelty and the pollution would have an impact. 

Most people are not inclined to engage in serious moral reasoning. If it tastes good, and it's cheap, they'll eat endless quantities of it. 

FOX news calls any movement towards health and happiness as being part of the "Nanny State." Well, those not so bright people at FOX really do need a nanny.

Hey, welcome back, Dennis! I couldn't agree with you more and  hope the push-back is a result of losses they are suffering as people become more aware of the horrible consequences of this industry that has run out of control.
