Commend Martha Stewart for Protecting Animal Rights

pig crate

Target: Martha Stewart

Goal: Commend Martha Stewart for publicly advocating for animal rights

Martha Stewart has publicly complained about the cruelty of pig gestation crates and demanded that law makers ban the horrific practice.  Pig gestation crates confine pigs to crates the size of their bodies.  As a result, pigs cannot even turn around, let alone move freely.  This practice is outdated and inhumane.  Animal lovers should commend Martha Stewart for using her fame as a platform to speak out against gestation crates.

The New Jersey legislature passed a bill that prohibited this cruel practice.  Governor Christie, however, vetoed the bill because the law would economically damage out of state agricultural industries.  According to the ASPCA, in her letter, Martha Stewart stated, “These animals have committed no crime, yet they’re treated worse than even the most violent criminals would be treated. No prisoner in our state – or country, for that matter – is kept in a cage so small he can’t turn around for months on end. This is torture, and we shouldn’t permit it to be inflicted on anyone, especially animals who have done nothing to deserve such callous punishment.”

Also according to the ASPCA, Temple Grandin, Ph.D., states, “Gestation crates for pigs are a real problem… Basically, you’re asking a sow to live in an airline seat … I think it’s something that needs to be phased out.”

Sign the petition below to commend Martha Stewart for her passionate letter and encourage awareness for this cause.


Dear Martha Stewart:

Thank you for your letter to the New Jersey legislature that urges lawmakers to end pig gestation crating.  This practice is outdated and inhumane.  As you mentioned in your letter, this type of confinement causes extreme psychological and physical torture for the pig.

We appreciate your time and effort toward such a worthy cause and hope to help endorse your efforts.

    The footage in her video breaks my heart what the fuck is wrong with people?? It’s not okay to do that it’s beyond words. He’ll does exist we created it here on earth. I’m vegan and will always be. I live in this shithole texas which is the worst place to be for an animal rights activist and I’ve met people that get so angry when I tell them I’m vegan.. Why does not wanting to kill anything make some people so mad? I get so depressed all the time my weight is constantly going up and down because I don’t eat when I’m depressed. I will never know what true happiness is until the day I die because people will always keep this disturbing cruelty around. People just don’t care I make pamphlets try to educate people and all I get is a nod and a” that’s terrible” commentthen they go on with their routines concerned with the new iPhone or what celebrity is fucking who nowadays it’s pathetic sickening.. I wish people would stop the killing it’s not that hard I’m nobody special. It hurts me so bad the clips in the video of the cow being dragged off the clipping of the birds beaks HAVE MERCY for fucks sake I don’t get it . Theres only so much I can do with my time on earth and what really depressed me so so so unbelievably bad is that I know it will still exist long after I’m gone. Idk why I even bothered with such a long rant when very few even give a shit
