STOP slaughtering horses for food!!!

These innocent animals are being slaughtered for food and it is NOT humane!

(ASPCA) Barack Obama restored the American horse-slaughter industry this month. The Washington Times reported:

President Obama earlier this month quietly signed into law a spending bill that restores the American horse-slaughter industry,just a few months after a government investigation said the ban on slaughtering for human consumption was backfiring. The agriculture spending bill Mr. Obama signed the week before Thanksgiving did not include a ban on the inspection of horse meat —a backdoor prohibition that had,since 2006,effectively halted the U.S. horse-slaughter industry. In June the Government Accountability Office,Congress’s official investigative branch,released a report saying the ban had shut down U.S. slaughter,but that only depressed prices for horses here while causing many of the animals to be shipped to “foreign slaughtering facilities where U.S. humane slaughtering protections do not apply.”
