Glendora Vegetarian Club
The Humane Farming Association has produced a video to inform you of the excruciating agonies hens endure while supermarkets and cruel people steal their eggs. This video has had over 12 million views on YouTube. If you eat eggs, you should be the 12 millionth and one to see it. We can never have the peace of God, which passes all understanding, if we participate in this horror. HFA continues to generate public awareness and outrage about attempts to legalize battery cages-while providing egg-laying hens with just one square foot of floor space. The full-length version of HFA’s video can be seen at NoOnProposition12.org.
