The New Jersey Senate unanimously passed S1303, designated as Patrick’s Law, yesterday afternoon.

Almost a billion animals are killed for food every year in Britain, many of whom endure intensive factory-farming conditions that cause them pain and suffering during their short lives. The welfare of farm animals is therefore, on any objective basis, one of the most pressing social issues of the modern age.
