Imagine if every state in the U.S. was forced to allow dog and cat meat. Or had to legalize battery cages that trap hens in disease-ridden boxes too small to even spread their wings, as well as puppy mills that churn out sick, abused and neglected dogs.
This nightmarish scenario is exactly what will happen if we allow a terrible bill from Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) to pass. The deceptively titled Protect Interstate Commerce Act (HR 4879/HR 3599) would decimate state and local laws that save animals, forcing everyone across the nation to allow sale of products borne from extreme animal cruelty. Don't let this disastrous bill pass!
Sign this petition to urge U.S. congressional leaders to oppose HR 4879/HR 3599, and instead focus on laws that protect animals, not harm them. Then, call your representative and state senators at (202) 224-3121 to respectfully tell them you are a concerned constituent and urge them to stand against this bill. Follow up with an email message.
This is the second time such a bill has been introduced in Congress by Rep. King. Activists defeated the bill the first time, and we can defeat it again!
