HORSE ADVOCATES: Are you in the IGNORED MAJORITY of Americans whom Congress does NOT LISTEN to? Over 70% of Americans do NOT want Horse Slaughter, yet Horse Slaughter could become legal in the U.S. if $$$ Lovers like Sue Wallis gets her way on June

HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO TO STOP LEGALIZATION OF HORSE SLAUGHTER IN THE U.S.


The House Appropriations Committee accepted Rep. Moran’s amendment to the proposed appropriations bill to continue DE-FUNDING of inspections of horses to be sent for slaughter for human consumption. That means that under the Appropriations Committee’s proposed bill, commercial horse slaughter would REMAIN ILLEGAL in the U.S. The vote was close, 24-21. THE BILL NOW GOES TO THE FULL HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES FOR A VOTE ON JUNE 15.

FRY THE PHONE LINES. Call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-2131 and ask for the Representative from YOUR State,

Tell your U.S. representative: Support language defunding inspections of horses to be slaughtered for human consumption (Jim Moran’s Amendment to DEFUND USDA Inspections; and vote against any amendments to remove Rep. Moran’s amendment to the 2012 Agriculture Appropriations bill.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT…WITHOUT JIM MORAN’S AMENDMENT IN THE APPROPRIATION’S COMMITTEE BUDGET FOR FY 2012, HORSE SLAUGHTER COULD BECOME LEGAL AGAIN IN THE UNITED STATES

Slaughterhouse Sue has a vested interest in horse slaughter--obviously. She should get a real job instead of trying to secure her fortune through horse flesh. Save horses, get rid of Slaughterhouse Sue instead.

She says the lack of horse slaughter is causing the horse industry to downsize. GOOD! Too many horses are homeless and in need of rescue due to overbreeding with irresponsible breeders for various industries sending them to slaughter when they are no longer useful.

I lkve in Europe (UK) but the same principle that applies here applies in any democracy. The role of our elected representatives is to reflect our wishes. If everyone who feels strongly about this issues, and tells their representative how strongly they feel, then the majority will listen. Those who don't will have proven themselves not to be trustworthy, as such they should lose votes and their jobs!

Noted and email to my rep sent. I despise the BLM. Just another bunch of big corp. pandering hoodlums, in my opinion. It is all about power and money. Thank you, Simone, and Charles for the fwd.
