Urgent Action Alert: Speak Out Against Dangerous Whistleblower Suppression Bills
The New York state legislature is on the verge of passing a dangerous bill that threatens to undermine the efforts of animal protection groups nationwide and allow factory farmers to continue to abuse animals with impunity. Designed to shield animal abusers from public scrutiny, Senate Bill 5172 aims to make criminals out of those who dare to expose cruelty to farmed animals.
If Senate Bill 5172 were to pass, it would set a dangerous precedent for preventing Mercy For Animals and similar organizations from conducting lifesaving cruelty investigations and exposing consumers to the routine cruelties inflicted on animals raised and killed for food.
Unfortunately, at the behest of the multi-billion dollar meat, dairy and egg industries, similar bills have been proposed in states all across the country. If this dangerous bill passes in New York, it is only a matter of time before similar legislation is passed nationwide. Now is the time to speak out against this shameful bill.
