For all those who are interested I started a petition on animal rights at Whitehouse.gov. There is a new feature called We The People that accepts any petition. It will go live and be searchable once the number of signatures hits 150. Please read, sign, and pass on.

Extend Animal Cruelty Laws to Factory Farm Animals

Every year in the U.S. approximately 10 billion farm animals are subject to
extensive suffering and inhumane living conditions in factory farms that no
animal kept as a pet would ever experience. This is primarily a result of
laws known as Common Farming Exemptions. These laws allow animals
raised for food to be given virtually no consideration in regards to the pain
and suffering they experience. Common conditions in factory farms include
debeaking of chickens without anesthesia, removal of piglets tails after
birth, chick culling (the killing of all male chicks shortly after birth in
the egg industry), extremely confining spaces, and of course the eventual
slaughter of the animal. Its time to recognize that animals can suffer and
feel pain whether or not they are our pets.

I registered, but the email sent needed me to click on a link that wasn't provided to confirm email address.
Did anyone else have trouble?

I posted the link to the petition on my Tumblr and got a few reblogs, so I hope that helped! I might post it again too.
