Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Gestation Crates Must Go

Nathan Runkle, founder and Executive Director of the animal advocacy group Mercy for Animals, explains why Walmart’s cheap cost of pork comes with a very high price: egregious acts of cruelty. Numerous undercover videos at pig factory farms have shown the systematic, standard cruelty inflicted on these animals.

Aside from piglets being slammed headfirst into the ground, workers cutting off piglets' tails and testicles without painkillers, and animals suffering from bloody open wounds, one of the most abusive practices by the pig industry that Walmart still supports is cramming pigs into gestation crates where they can barely move, certainly not turn around or lie down comfortably, and never exercise any of their instincts and needs.

Please visit The High Cost of Walmart's Cheap Pork:

Treating pigs without any compassion or mercy is certainly making a mockery of God’s love for them. Gestation crates have no place in a civilized society. Christians, stewards of God’s Creations, are called to expose victimization and to do our best to stop it. It’s clear that farmed animals are brutally victimized by the animal agriculture industry and that unless we take a stand and stop consuming their products, God’s animals will continue to suffer for simply taste and profit.
