USDA considering privatizing meat/poultry inspections
The USDA is moving forward with plans to privatize part of its meat and poultry inspection programs. There is a comment period which runs through April 26. Let’s try to make them wish they had never thought of this stupid idea!

Currently animals are always tortured throughout the slaughter process and the USDA inspectors have done very little to alleviate any of the suffering, and they have done very little to provide “safe food” for people who continue to eat animals. However, having industry employees be in charge of inspections will take this disastrous brutality from bad to worse!

Let SNBL know that torturing animals does not go unnoticed and people are demanding an end to animal testing.

Tell them to explore alternatives because vivisection is scientifically outdated and morally unacceptable.

Tell your Federal Representative to oppose radical hunting proposals
H.R. 4089 (The “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012″) combines several anti-wildlife proposals into a single dangerous bill.
It amends the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) to allow for the importation of polar bear “trophies” from Canada that are presented as having been taken prior to the May 2008 Endangered Species Act listing.
It requires federal agencies to open nearly all public lands to hunting–including national parks–and prevents federal agencies from reviewing the impacts of hunting on non-tartget species or their habitats under the National Environmental Policy Act.
It removes the ability of the EPA to protect wildlife and people from lead poisoning through toxic ammunition exposure.

Tell your Representative to OPPOSE H.R. 4089 (The “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012″) that could drastically alter the way polar bears and other wildlife species are protected in the United States.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
