Farmed Animals Totally Unprotected by Law

This article deals with the fact that farmed animals are totally unprotected by law from abuse and torture. For example, The Humane Methods of Slaughter Act requires farmers to knock out livestock with a single blow, shot, or electrical charge before being butchering them, but the law only governs slaughterhouses, not farms. Ohio law prohibits keeping animals "in an enclosure without wholesome exercise and change of air," unless they are livestock, of course.

There is no piece of legislation that protects God’s farmed animals from the daily abuses they suffer. Since the government has been unwilling to address this issue it us, consumers, who must stand up for God’s defenseless creatures and therefore stop supporting the meat, dairy and egg industries. When we apply Jesus’ teaching of compassion, mercy and love to our daily lives, we find that there is no room for a based diet based on animal products.
