More than 100 Mass. farmers say 'yes' to Question 3

I am thrilled that I will have the chance to cast a "yes" vote for Question 3 on my ballot this year.

It is currently legal to confine chickens, pigs and calves to tiny cages where they are barely able to move. Farm animals currently have no protection against this kind of treatment. Because of this, thousands of hens in Massachusetts are living out their days crammed in tiny, barren cages.

Yes on Question 3 the humane thing to do

A yes vote on Question 3 -- on November's ballot -- would prevent cruelty to farm animals.

Unfortunately, George Moore's recent letter to the editor included a great deal of misinformation on this matter.

Question 3 Promotes Responsible Farming, Prevents Animal Cruelty

Dear Editor:

I volunteer for the “YES ON 3” campaign. Over the past year more than 1,000 volunteers petitioned for this measure and received overwhelming support by gathering 170,000 signatures throughout the Commonwealth. I would like to clarify some information regarding Letter to the Editor titled; “Have You Seen Question 3 for the November Ballot?” (see Letters to the Editor, Groton Herald, Sept. 16 issue.)

About the Issue

Citizens for Farm Animal Protection is a grassroots coalition working to prevent cruelty to veal calves, egg-laying hens, and pigs by campaigning for a YES! vote on Question 3 of this November's ballot. These animals are crammed into cages so small they can't turn around or extend their limbs. This practice is abusive and increases the risk of food safety problems, like Salmonella. We're a broad coalition of non-profit organizations, farmers and businesses, community leaders, and grassroots activists dedicated to enacting Question 3 to ban the cruel confinement of farm animals. Thanks to the help of more than a thousand volunteers, we gathered more than 170,000 signatures from registered Massachusetts voters to qualify for the ballot. By voting YES! on Question 3, we will help protect animals from abuse.
