Last US horse-slaughtering plant is granted a reprieve

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decided 2-1 to allow horse-slaughter plant in Illinois to temporally continue slaughtering horses for overseas markets.  The decision was based on Cavel International's claim arguing "that it will go out of business absent a stay" because it will not be able to operate while its appeal of the court ruling is pending.

This federal court decision is a set-back in becoming better stewards of God’s Creation. Slaughtering God’s animals for human profit and benefit shows how hardened our hearts have become toward sentient creatures who desire to live free from human exploitation. Humanity should strive to adopt a plant-based diet for it honors God and benefits all Creation.
