Help Save Animal Protection Laws

We’ve written about the King Amendment before, and it keeps coming up in the news. It’s like the end of a horror movie when the villain just won’t die!

The House of Representatives passed the dangerous and overreaching King amendment, which threatens to repeal many animal protection laws on farm animal confinement, horse slaughter, puppy mills, shark finning, and even dog meat. A House-Senate conference committee will now negotiate the final Farm Bill, and we need to keep the King amendment out!

Please make a brief, polite phone call to Rep. Jim McDermott (202) 225-3106 asking for help to remove the King amendment from the final Farm Bill. If you have time, please also call Sen. Maria Cantwell (202) 224-3441 and Sen. Patty Murray (202) 224-2621.

You can say: “I’m a concerned constituent, and I’m calling to urge you to oppose the King amendment and remove it from the Farm Bill. It’s a dangerous and radical attack on states’ rights.”

After you’ve made your phone calls, send a follow-up message.
Thank you for taking action and speaking out against this radical assault on animal welfare.

About Jean

Why vegan? I've been vegan since 2000, when I read Diet for a New America and learned about the horrible treatment of animals in factory farms. I'd been a vegetarian for a long time before then. I've always loved animals and I want to work toward ending their suffering. I believe animals have the right to live their lives in peace. Why NARN? I joined NARN shortly after I moved to Seattle from Toronto, Canada. I met a couple of interesting people at the NARN table at a summer festival and was happy to find like-minded souls in my new, adopted home. I plugged in whenever I could and was so happy to have a network of people to lean on. It's wonderful to know I'm not alone in my concern for how animals are treated.
