Slaughter of Horses in Illinois banned 

Yesterday, May 24, Governor Rod R. Blagojevich signed legislation that bans the slaughter of horses in Illinois for human consumption. Gov. Blagojevich stated, “It’s past time to stop slaughtering horses in Illinois and sending their meat overseas. I’m proud to sign this law that finally puts an end to this practice.”

It's good news for God's Creation every time humanity takes a step toward a loving, compassionate and harmonious world. The brutal slaughter of horses came to an end in the state of Illinois thanks to the pressure of animal advocate groups and compassionate consumers. Hopefully, more people will realize that the killing of a cow, a pig or a chicken is no different than the killing of a horse. All of God's animals deserve to live a life free from human exploitation. A plant-based diet is a powerful witness to Christ's love, compassion and peace.
