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.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
