The College Democrats of Massachusetts is emphatically endorsing Yes on ballot question number 3 in support of minimum size requirements for farm animals. We believe in the humane treatment of animals and believe strongly in the prohibition of sale of animals that are kept in spaces that prevent the animal from lying down, standing up, extending limbs or turning around.
The College Democrats of Massachusetts recognizes the possible increased burden on farmers of the possible regulation as well as the possible increase in cost of certain produce that will affect lower income families, but we feel strongly that humanity and decency are imperative.
We are not advocating for the increased burden on families or farmers, rather we are advocating for the humane treatment of life. For that reason, we advocate a YES vote on Question 3.
