Readers Write: Yes on Prop. 2

On Nov. 4 everyone in California will have the opportunity to improve the lives of animals. Proposition 2 is a reasonable and common sense reform to end the suffering of animals raised for food.

Sadly, millions of animals in our state suffer in ways that are cruel, inhumane and unnecessary. Proposition 2 aims to end the practice of holding pigs, calves and hens in cages so small they can’t turn around, spread their wings or lie down ” what I believe should be basic rights for any living creature, regardless of what they are being raised for.

If you vote yes you will be joining the Sierra Club, the American Public Health Association and many others in not only improving the lives of animals, but also improving the environment, protecting our air and water and improving our health and food safety.

Please take it upon yourself to learn about Prop 2. You can access information and read the proposition at Anyone who agrees that animals don’t deserve to suffer like this should vote Yes on the Prevention of Farm Cruelty Act.

As a person who cares deeply for animals, I look forward to voting Yes on Prop 2 and I hope my fellow animal-loving community members will join me.
