Urge Pennsylvania Lawmaker to Protect Undercover Investigations!

Pennsylvania Sen. Mike Brubaker is planning to introduce a bill that, if passed, could subject whistleblowers and undercover investigators to criminal prosecution for their efforts to expose animal abuse on factory farms and in slaughterhouses. This absurd and unconstitutional "ag-gag" bill, which infringes on Americans' basic constitutional rights, is a desperate attempt by agriculture industry giants to prevent consumers from learning the truth about the lives and deaths of animals on factory farms.

A PETA investigation at a slaughterhouse in Pennsylvania was prompted by complaints from a worker who had been ignored after reporting to the on-site U.S. Department of Agriculture inspector that he had been kicked in the face by animals who were improperly stunned and still conscious when their throats were slit and their hooves were cut off. The investigation revealed extreme crowding and confinement and led to complaints filed with state and federal authorities for suspected violations of humane slaughter laws. Many past investigations of factory farms have resulted in criminal charges or convictions after revealing routine abuses, including footage from a Pennsylvania dairy farm that showed workers repeatedly kicking and electro-shocking cows who were in too much pain to stand up. This bill is designed to shroud factory farming in secrecy and hide from the public the truth about what happens behind the closed doors of factory farms.

With the help of consumers like you, similar bills have died in Wyoming, New Hampshire, Minnesota, New York, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Arkansas, and New Mexico.

Please urge Sen. Brubaker to bag his "ag-gag" bill!
