Senate Bill (SB) 184, which is currently making its way through the Indiana Senate, could subject whistleblowers to criminal prosecution for their efforts to expose animal abuse on factory farms. If passed, the bill would make it a crime to record video of or photograph a farm without the farm owner’s written consent and could stop vital undercover work that exposes routine abuse against animals in the factory farming industry. This absurd and unconstitutional bill, which infringes on Americans’ basic rights, is a desperate attempt by agriculture industry giants to prevent consumers from learning the truth about the lives and deaths of animals on factory farms.
This bill is designed to shroud factory farming in secrecy; it could deprive animals of the already minimal protection they have under law and hide from the public the truth about what happens behind the closed doors of factory farms.
