Billions of farmed animals live and die in cruel, unhealthy, and unsustainable factory farm conditions. Secrecy shields the worst animal abuses from public view, so some industry groups are lobbying for ag-gag legislation: anti-free speech laws that would jail anyone who makes a recording on a farm without formal permission. This protects people who commit animal abuse, not those who report it.

I believe that citizens have a right to know about how food animals are raised and slaughtered. Ag-gag is a bad idea because we should punish the people who commit animal abuse, not the people who report it.
