End extreme confinement of farm animals

Op-Ed Worcester Telegram & Gazette Nov 02, 2016

As Massachusetts veterinarians, we take seriously our duty to advocate for the welfare of animals and protect them from cruelty. That’s why we are proud to endorse Question 3, the ballot measure entitled “An Act to Prevent Cruelty to Farm Animals.”

Yes on 3 promotes animals' health, and ours

Letters to the Editor Cape Cod Times Nov 02, 2016

To prevent animal cruelty and improve consumer safety, I strongly urge voting Yes on Question 3 on Nov. 8.

Editorial: Yes vote on Question 3 supports animal rights

Op-Ed Daily Hampshire Gazette Nov 02, 2016

On Tuesday, Massachusetts residents have the opportunity to cast a meaningful vote against animal cruelty. We would be proud to see the state continue its tradition of leadership on progressive and humanitarian causes by adopting the measures in ballot Question 3.

Question 3 will benefit people as well as animals

Letters to the Editor Sentinel & Enterprise Oct 31, 2016

In response to the Sentinel & Enterprise's editorial on Question 3, the ballot measure would simply set a commonsense standard for animal welfare by allowing farm animals enough room to extend their limbs, spread their wings and turn around.

The current practice on corporate "factory farms" of cramming animals into cages so small they can barely move has been linked to higher rates of salmonella -- one reason why the Center for Food Safety endorses Question 3.

Our view: Yes on charters, no on legalized marijuana

Op-Ed Gloucester Times Oct 31, 2016

In addition to the presidential and local elections, Massachusetts voters will have the opportunity to weigh in on several ballot questions that will directly affect their daily lives.

Question 2 asks voters to lift the cap on the number of charter schools in the state. If approved, the measure would allow Massachusetts to add as many as a dozen charter schools a year, with the focus being on communities with low-performing schools.

Vote 'yes' for better treatment of farm animals

Op-Ed Metrowest Daily News Oct 31, 2016

One could argue that Massachusetts is behind the times when it comes to the prevention of cruelty to farm animals. In November, voters will be asked, in Ballot Question 3, to phase out "extreme methods of farm animal confinement” and ban the sale of eggs, veal or pork from an animal that is confined “in a cruel manner.”

Ten states have already passed similar laws, and many major retailers, including Walmart, McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts, have already promised to sell only cage-free eggs in the coming years.
