Names can be deceiving. In Communist countries, “the people’s party” is really the dictators’ party. A “pre-owned” car can be a lemon. And in the Bay State, the so-called Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act is less about helping animals and more about a fringe agenda to bankrupt farmers.
The Act would ban modern farm housing systems that were developed to better protect animals, such as maternity pens, which are used for pregnant pigs. Let’s be clear that these systems, which animal liberation activists claim are inhumane, are supported by veterinary science.
