Following up our recent post regarding the HEROES Act, we are asking everyone to contact their senators to demand revisions protecting farmed animals now that the legislation has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. As drafted, it would give essentially a bailout to large agribusinesses for “depopulating” their farmed animals. These mass killings are a brutal way to deal with these poor animals who are already given such a cruel fate.
ENOUGH OF OUR HARD-EARNED TAXPAYER DOLLARS ALREADY GO TO SUBSIDIZE THE HORRENDOUS MASS-PRODUCTION AND SLAUGHTER OF BILLIONS OF ANIMALS EACH YEAR. THESE INDUSTRIES ARE NIGHTMARES FOR PUBLIC HEALTH. THE ENVIRONMENT, AND ALL ANIMALS, HUMAN AND NON-HUMAN ALIKE, WHO ARE FORCED TO WORK AND LIVE IN THESE FILTHY CONDITIONS.
NO BAILOUTS FOR AGRIBUSINESS!
