The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) recently released its desired list of goals for the upcoming 2023 Farm Bill. The extensive list covers a broad range of objectives from farm animals and wildlife to animal testing and aquariums.
Contrary to its misleading name, AWI is more about promoting extremist animal rights ideology and beliefs through political lobbying and legislation than actual animal welfare.
AWI’s mission statement cites goals to “abolish factory farms,” “encourage the development and implementation of alternatives to experimentation on live animals” and “reform…brutal methods of capturing and killing wildlife.” Like many similar extremist groups, AWI is comprised of ardent supporters of “humane education” in the classrooms, choosing brainwashing over facts, science and truth.
Targeting Farm Animals
Of the twelve priorities AWI identifies as goals for its farm bill efforts, seven directly target animal farming and ranching, and meat processing.
Their first priority is titled “Protect Farmed Animals from Extreme Weather,” and calls for any recipients of USDA disaster assistance payments to have a proven disaster preparedness plan and provide a description as to how it was implemented to prevent farm animal injuries and deaths during extreme weather.
