Re: “Oakland Takes First Step Toward Embracing Urban Agriculture

Agreed -- The Oakland City Planning Commission should be commended for moving ahead with plans to foster plant-based urban agriculture. Increasing food security, access to local produce, and community self-sufficiency are all crucial goals, and this move will help.

It needs to stay plant-based, however. From animal welfare, public health, and numerous other perspectives, sanctioning backyard animal slaughter is a terrible idea, which is why there are bans in place against it all over the country. It’s not humane, it’s not safe, and it’s not necessary.
