TELL CONGRESS TO BAN U.S. HORSE SLAUGHTER & EXPORT FOR SLAUGHTER ONCE AND FOR ALL!

From the American Wild Horse Preservation

Last year, more than 140,000 American horses were trucked to Canada and Mexico, where they were brutally slaughtered for human consumption in foreign countries. These horses suffer long journeys Without adequate food, water or rest to slaughter plants across the border, where they meet a brutal and terrifying end.

In April, federal lawmakers once again introduced the Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act of 2015, H.R. 19442/ S. 1214, legislation to prevent the establishment of horse slaughter operations within the U.S., end the current export of American horses for slaughter abroad, and protect the public from consuming toxic horse meat.

Your action could mean the difference between life and a horrendous and terrifying death for more than 100,000 American horses – both wild and domestic – each year. So please take these two easy steps today:

1. Call your Senators and Representative and ask them to co-sponsor this critically important bill. Your legislators’ telephone numbers will appear under their pictures below. It’s simple and only takes a minute. All you have to say is this:

“Hello, I am a constituent of Sen./Representative ___, and I am calling to ask that he/she co-sponsor the Safeguard American Food Exports Act, H.R. 1942/S. 1214. Horse slaughter is a cruel and unacceptable practice opposed by the vast majority of Americans. Since horses are not raised for food in the U.S. and are commonly treated with a variety of drugs that are toxic to human beings, horsemeat is unsafe for human consumption.”

House Co-sponsors.
Senate Co-sponsors.

2. Follow up your telephone call by personalizing and sending the sample email below.  Please note that you may be asked to choose a subject or topic area: choose or fill in “Agriculture.”

My video in response to this perfectly said comment is 84% uploaded on YouTube - shouldn’t be much longer! Link to my channel in bio.
I feel that we are losing sight of what it means to be vegan and our priorities, as first and foremost voices for the animals, need to be reevaluated.
