Until now this has been the egg and poultry industry’s darkest secret, little known to the general public in its grisly details and extent (40 million annually in the UK alone). This may account for the scant attention in the media to this huge victory for animal welfare (or lack of concern for the sanctity of life below a certain size). Germany will be the first country in the world to enshrine in law this right to live to newborn life. We must insist on as much from our own legislators.
Let this Easter be the last where eggs equal extermination for so many sentient beings.
