Keep horse slaughter illegal in the US!

Imagine when you get old or disabled and unable to work or even just plain healthy you get shipped off to be killed and sold to places to be eaten. Doesn't sound so good does it? It definitely doesn't sound good to a horse! Congress and Obama was decided to lift the ban and are going to make it okay to open slaughter houses in the US. I'm not sure about you but this definitely doesn't sound like a good idea. Many horses that are unable to work or get to old are shipped to other countries these days to get slaughter and killed for their meat. Most of the times horses are semi-conscious when they are slaughtered!  These animals are the symbols of the old west and are wonderful pets! They helped build our great country! I’m asking for people to sign this and keep the slaughter of horses illegal in the US and ban the export of live horses to other countries, because me personally I do not want to waste our tax dollars on funding horse slaughtering houses! Live horses are shipped to other countries 24/7 to be slaughtered and this needs to stop. Help ban the export of live horses to other countries for slaughter!

      MEAT IS CANCEROUS CAUSE MAN IS HERBIVORE 100 %....!!!

      Gli "illuminati"quelli che controllano il mondo,ci fanno mangiare gli animali e gli ogm per distruggere la nostra biologia,per indurci poi a curarci con i farmaci,mangiare animali equivale ad un rito sacrificale globale di sangue.

      These beautiful animals are our workers, competitors, companions, and pets. They are not to be slaughtered and eaten. They are given drugs that are dangerous to human consumption and these facilities only bring sadness and expensive trouble to communities. Taxpayers subsidize them at $500,00/yr per facility just for inspections. They don't pay taxes because the meat is shipped to Japan. They cause environmental violations to our groundwater and now the EU doesn't want them because their meat is adulterated and has gotten into their food chain. It is a barbaric, horrific, and inhumane practice and must be banned once and for all in the United States as well as the transport in any way of our equines across our borders. Stop the BLM roundups and REPEAL the Burns Amendment which is also rounding up and killing the people's iconic wild horses and burros that we entrusted to our BLM to protect and they are killing them off to extinction for fracking, cattle, and mining interests. Stop this now.
