The New York Times Officially Supports Proposition 2

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Here at Ecorazzi we are proud to support Propositon 2 — an initiative to add a chapter to Division 20 of California’s Health and Safety Code to prohibit the confinement of certain farm animals in a manner that does not allow them to turn around freely, lie down, stand up, and fully extend their limbs. I mean of course we support it…we’re Ecorazzi.  And sure, we’ve got some huge Hollywood A-listers on our side, but if you think this law is just for tree-huggin’, herbivore eatin’ hippie types, you’re dead wrong.

The New York Times – who quite honestly rarely supports anything vegetarian or animal-friendly — published an editorial this week offering their full support for Prop 2. In it, they write:

The goal of the California Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act — Proposition 2 on the state’s November ballot — sounds extremely modest. It would ban the confinement of animals in a way that keeps them from being able to stand, sit, lie down, turn around and extend their limbs. The fact that such fundamental decencies have to be forced upon factory farming says a lot about its horrors. We urge California voters to pass Proposition 2. We urge every state to enact similar laws…

To a California voter still undecided on Proposition 2, we say simply, imagine being confined in the voting booth for life. Would you vote for the right to be able to sit down and turn around and raise your arms?

If you live in California and are of voting age, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure to learn more about Proposition 2 and vote yes on November 4th!
