That's exactly what might happen in Indiana if lobbyists representing big agri-business have their way in Indiana's 2014 legislative session. The seemingly harmless sounding proposed "Right to Hunt & Fish" amendment should really be called the "Right to Harm". If these special interests get their way, the Bill of Rights in Indiana's Constitution would be amended to include this as a fundamental right--on the same level as "freedom of speech" and "freedom of religion".
As a fellow Hoosier, and as a parent, I am very concerned about the profoundly damaging effects this could have on our children's health and Indiana's environment in general, as constitutional protection would give these big factory farms a free pass to pollute our land, waterways, and air, while local and state policymakers stand by, stripped of their rights to act.
I hope you'll join me and take action now to protect our children, and the health and safety of all Hoosiers:
to support HEC's statewide education campaign to defeat the "Right to Harm" amendment!
