Take Heart!
Very Dangerous Amendment to Farm Bill

John Robbins writes a fantastic expose about the current House version of the $500 billion Farm Bill that contains an amendment that could potentially nullify any laws to protect animals, and perhaps even laws to protect the environment, workers, or public safety. Interestingly, the person who introduced this amendment, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), seems to have some extreme views. Rep. King doesn't want anyone telling America's farmers how to raise and care for their animals as his words clearly express: "My [amendment] language wipes out everything they've done [to ban the most cruel practices] with pork and veal." 

Please visit Will the Farm Bill Nullify Laws Against Animal Cruelty? and share!

The Farm Bill, already approved by the House, could mean a huge set back for God's farmed animals in the U.S. The callousness of Rep. King depicts very much how Big Ag sees farmed animals: mere commodities.
It's imperative that all of us share this expose far and wide. God's animals don't have a voice unless we speak on their behalf.
