Pig ads rejected

Marie Claire, Delicious and Good Weekend are some of the women oriented magazines that have rejected ads by a $500,000 Australian campaign against the intense confinement and mutilations factory farmed pigs are subjected to.

The ads feature color photographs of freshly cooked pork dishes with headlines such as “Emotionally Stressed Pork Sausages in Red Wine Jus” and Traumatized Suckling Piglet with Severed Tail” followed by the text detailing how week-old piglets have their tails cut off and their eye teeth removed with clippers without any pain relief.

Even though publishers who rejected the ads claim that they are not being pressured by the meat industry, Brian Sherman, director of the animal protection group Voiceless, part of an alliance funding the ads, speculated that the meat industry might threaten to withdraw the $800,000 it spends each year on magazine advertising.

The factory farm industry is among the cruelest towards God’s animals. It is a pity that some magazines that claim to represent today’s women opinions and provide information, refuse to advertise the truth surrounding pig factory farms and their inherent cruelty. It is time that the media exposes the meat industry and its callousness.
