Ginnifer Goodwin has stepped up and is voicing her opposition to the ag gag bill in Tennessee.

She joins the likes of Carrie Underwood in her plea for Tenn. Governor Bill Haslam to veto the bill.

If you haven't heard somehow, in Tennessee there's a bill trying to make it so animal abuse whistleblowers have to turn their evidence over to police within 48 hours of learning of the abuse or risk facing charges themselves.

The whole point of this bill is to make it so farm industry abuse is harder to document because two days isn't enough time to document ongoing, systemic abuse.

Ginnifer tweeted:

She linked to a petition started by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

The HSUS said about the bill:

"In recent years, whistleblowing employees have repeatedly exposed animal abuse, unsafe working conditions, and environmental problems on industrial farms. The agriculture industry’s response has not been to prevent the abuses, but to try to prevent the American people from finding out about the abuses in the first place. The industry has introduced “anti-whistleblower” bills in an attempt to make whistle-blowing on farms impossible."

So follow Ginnifer's link and add your name if you care about the animals at all!

This bill can NOT pass!!
