Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

AETA approved by Congress

On November 13th, the House of Representatives voted in favor of the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA), which unfortunately could be used to arrest, prosecute and imprison law-abiding citizens exercising their first amendment rights to peacefully assemble and protest the mistreatment of animals.

Tracy Silverman, Society for Animal Protective Legislation Legislative Counsel, said “It is shameful that on the same day America honored the memory and legacy of Dr. King, Congress declared the millions of Americans who advocate for greater protection of animals to be terrorists and criminalized many of the tools used by activists to challenge industry abuse of animals.” The bill now goes to the President for signature.

God calls us to defend and protect victims. Christ himself teaches us how to bring healing and restoration into the world through compassion, love and peace, which ultimately always triumph.
