IP3 seeks to change the animal abuse statutes to criminalize hunting, fishing, trapping, killing animals for food, education and research with animals, wildlife management practices, and even trapping mice & vermin. It would classify breeding animals, to include domestic pets, livestock, and equine, as sexual assault.
IP3 is an attack on a self-reliant lifestyle. It would create a 'no kill' sanctuary state, forcing Oregonians to a vegan diet or to have their meat and dairy products shipped in from other states, making us more reliant on the national food network for our food resources and less sustainable as a state. IP3 will drive up food costs to Oregonians and increase food insecurity for many communities.
IP3 is driven by an extreme, animal rights and vegan agenda centered in Portland with out-of-state influences. It was formerly known as IP13. The proponents of IP3 are currently gathering signatures to qualify it for the ballot; they have two years to gather 112,020 signatures.
These extremist groups will continue pushing their ideology and agenda across the country and we MUST step up to stop them if we want to continue our way of life. The best way to stop IP3 is to spread the word to NOT sign the petition. If this makes it on the ballot, it will take a statewide grassroots effort to get everyone to vote NO when they see it on the ballot.
