New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez

Sign an Executive Order Banning Horse Slaughter in New Mexico

A horse slaughter facility will reduce property values, air and water quality, increase crime rates, increase worker safety issues, and expose US and foreign markets to drug contaminated meats.

Slaughter of Equines cannot be accomplished pursuant to the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act.

New Mexico is home to twenty three Pueblos and Tribes; many of whom hold the horse to be sacred and valued components of their traditional culture are opposed to horse slaughter.

NM Governor Susanna Martinez Can Make History as a Consummate Leader....or Not

Governor Martinez is "SAYIN" she is opposed to horse slaughter, but is acting powerless.

However, Attorney at Law Pia Gallegos states "There exists sufficient potentiality for public harm so as to justify an Executive Order by Governor Martinez banning horse slaughter in the State of New Mexico." (NMSA 12-10A-5)

The nation and the world are watching.  We can encourage her by siging a petition asking her to issue an Executive Order similar to one that has been drafted for her below.

      One question Governor Martinez > IS THIS HOW YOU WOULD LIKE TO DIE?????? Slaughter is Barbaric to any living being! Greed is an awful thing when it means killing anything in this manner! By the way; I live in Arizona and I am currently spreading the word not to come to New Mexico for anything! Tourism in your state will end...80% of Americans are against horse slaughter! You may want to consider that in the long run your state will not make money when you open slaughter plants > you will absolutely lose money because the word will go out that New Mexico is the SLAUGHTER STATE!
