Don't Let Them Wipe Out Animal Protection Laws

    1. Sponsored by

      The Humane Society of The United States

The House of Representatives passed its Farm Bill including the dangerous and overreaching "King amendment," which threatens to repeal dozens of animal protection laws. It could nullify not only measures relating to animal welfare—like farm animal confinement, horse slaughter, puppy mills, and shark finning—but a wide range of other concerns including food safety, child labor and the environment.

A House-Senate conference committee will now negotiate the final bill, and we need to keep the King amendment out!

      Animals are also living on our planet. Kill some because some kill us but still respect them.

      I guess since animals pay no taxes, they have less rights than poor people, so who cares what happens to them..

      I am so very sick, disgusted and outraged at the lack of humanity and compassion in this government. It saddens me to see the total greed that trickles down to the people..what a sick, sociopathic country we have become from the government down to the population..
