One proposition I can get behind

I think it is important to get behind Proposition 2. Factory farmers are opposed to it because it makes them accountable for the health of their animals, but don't listen to the lies. They're claiming this bill will make eggs less safe. Wrong! This bill will create healthier chickens which actually lay healthier eggs giving a greater nutritional value to Californians who eat eggs.

The bill makes it mandatory to provide room for pregnant pigs, veal calves, and egg-laying chickens to turn around and spread their limbs. The factory farms which crams these animals in cages are unhealthy, disease-spreading facilities. Chickens don't grow feathers and cows lay in their own waste.

There is no argument against improved food safety and an end to cruel practices.
