Species rights for some only?
To put into law, the rights of transgressions for one group, the owners of animal stock, and impinge on the rights to know, should such transgressions take place.
Of course, in that line of reasoning, one would assume that all is always proper and kosher in all operations of livestock, I think by now we know better. The can has been opened, thanks to the courage’s efforts of people that believe that to cause animals inhumane treatment should be exposed, and so have enlightened us to the immeasurable scope of suffering, that takes place in many such operations.
It is indeed sad, that it would take the courage’s efforts, of a few to expose the lack of care of those in charge, be it the operators or the authorities.
Now the question comes to mind, who are they protecting; well I would assume you’ve figured that out already.
At a time a while ago in history, when slaves ran away, and then informed others of their cause it stirred a whole country into action, will we do the same for these poor slaves of a different species, whose suffering shall remain silent, for we can’t hear them, unless of course someone speaks for them. Iowa, with this outrages law has taken away the only chance to hear them in their misery, for what reason? You guessed it well, pretentious issues. Iowa, if you have nothing to hide, why, and if you’re proud of what you are doing are you worried about a few well meaning animal lovers? Why? Had you a label on your meat, as to where it came from, I would now, avoid it as the plaque. It might well be that well meaning people, people that care about creatures, might respond in kind and push for such labelling. After all if money talks, it seems in your case anyway, can we not let you hear our crispy soul searched dollar bills give you a message, and to all others, that would think of a similar disgusting law, such as this one?©04/03/2012
