Alicia Silverstone wants to help end the use of cruel battery cages for egg-laying hens. The vegan actress took to her website today to rally support for federal legislation that would overhaul the egg industry and ban the use of battery cages, which confine laying hens to cages typically smaller than a sheet of paper.

The bipartison supported bill, (S.3239), introduced last week by Senator Dianne Feinstein, would double each bird’s amount of space and put an end to forced starvation molting, greatly improving the treatment of this country’s 280 million hens.

To ensure the bill passes, Senator Feinstein needs help. Please contact your local Senator and ask them to support Feinstein on S.3239. Each state’s Senators can be found here.

    Anyone concerned about the abuse of animals on factory farms should OPPOSE this bill. Not only would it establish egg factory cages as a national standard, it would eliminate the rights of states and voters to do anything about it (AND nullify existing state laws that already ban or restrict battery cages, such as CA’s Prop. 2). That is why it is being pushed by the egg industry itself! The Stop the Rotten Egg Bill (http://www.StopTheRottenEggBill.org) campaign is getting it right. Check it out. This bill would keep hens forever locked IN cages, despite the overwhelming desires of the American public.

Campaigns against fur, whether that’s at the PETA level or a small mobbing like this, don’t work because they promote the use of other animal products.

Collaborating with animal exploiters won’t help animals

The two sides claim to both have the “health and well-being of animals” in mind in this partnership, but one likely said “after profitability” under their breath.

Exploitation for art is no worse than exploitation for dinner

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.
