United States: Tell Congress to Stop Cruel High-Speed Pig Slaughter
Cruel high-speed pig slaughter is about to go nationwide. Earlier this month, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued a final rule removing all line speed limits and allowing pig slaughterhouses across the country to police themselves – leaving millions of pigs vulnerable to increased suffering and terror.
Protect pigs and ask your senators to halt the high-speed pig slaughter rule.
- Call your senators. Phone calls have much more impact than emails. If you’re able to make a phone call, please do so. You can use this message: I’m calling to ask my senator to include House language halting the new swine inspection rule in the final version of the Agriculture Appropriations Bill (Section 779).
- Find your senators’ contact information.
- After calling, send a follow-up email to your senators using the form below. Personalizing your message will help it stand out.
