Ohio Issue 2: Animals versus People

VOTE NO ON OHIO STATEWIDE ISSUE 1

VOTE NO ON OHIO STATEWIDE ISSUE 3

VOTE NO ON OHIO STATEWIDE ISSUE 2

As I wrote in an earlier post, I am voting NO on all three statewide ballot issues in Ohio on Tuesday.

I am voting NO tomorrow on Ohio State Issue 2 and for an entirely different reason than out of Humane Society’s, the Sierra Club’s or PETA’s care and concern for this state’s animals. I, for one, think human life is sacred, not animal life. We are destroying thousands of our fellow human beings daily at Planned Parenthood and other abortuaries across Ohio and across America. Since 1973 this has been an American Holocaust, an American Atrocity on par with the Nazi Germany, Soviet Union, Red Chinese, Darfur, Rwanda, or the Khmer Rouge genocides.

I do not think that we should mistreat farm or any other animals. I believe most farmers are conscientious and do treat their animals properly.

However, I do not favor a constitutional amendment to protect farmers from the radical animal rights advocates or to protect animals from a few uncaring farmers. But I absolutely do support a Personhood Amendment that protects human life from birth until natural death.

READER COMMENTS ON OHIO ISSUE 2


Here are a few comments that were originally osted to last years Issue 2 article (October 2008).

If you oppose animal abuse, vote NO on Issue 2 this November.

This is absurd. Issue 2 only proposes to create a 13 person board of individuals specifically appointed to set standards for livestock and poultry care- NOT a 13 person board of sadistic animal haters set to terrorize cattle.Any meetings will be open to public questions and comments; you can hurl your misinformed propaganda at them, there.

Page, since you're so familiar with the absurd - do you seriously believe that a board of political appointees' priority will be the care of livestock? Their sole concern will be to carry out the wishes of those who appointed them. This will only result in Ohio writing into our constitution a mandate for special interests.Corporate mega-farms, not small farmers, will control standards in Ohio. Our elected legislature will have no avenue to reverse any actions by these unelected appointees. When thousands of animals are allowed be caged together in too small spaces, you'll smell the result in your community, no matter how far from these properties you live. You may then rethink your position, but it will be too late.
