BREAKING NEWS!!! – The Senate Appropriations Committee just voted (noon on June 20th) to allow the Moran Bill to go to the floor. The Moran Bill defunds horse meat inspections.
Here is video of Congressman Moran introducing the Moran-Young amendment in the House Committee.
Note: King is a leading defender of dog fighting and more. Read more at this article on Mitt Romney’s endorsement of King.
Please make a brief, polite phone call to Representative and urge a “NO” vote on the Farm Bill. We can’t allow the dangerous King amendment to wipe out years of hard-fought victories for animals.
This is so very, very important. Do this right now.
Do not put it off until later; it may be too late later for the animals. It may also be too late for anyone in the U.S. who eats.
Do not think, oh plenty of people will be calling. Plenty of people hopefully will. But this not about other people, this is about you taking a stand. If everyone who reads this post calls, there will be thousands speaking out against this horrific amendment.
If you have regular contact with your U.S. Representative, please contact them right now as well.
Ask them to vote NO to the Farm Bill (H.R. 1947) containing the King Amendment stripping your State animal protection laws away from you.
