Safeguard American Export (SAFE) Act
SUGGESTED SCRIPT FOR CONTACTING YOUR LEGISLATORS
As a constituent, I urge (your legislator's name) to cosponsor The Safeguard American Food Export (SAFE) Act, H.R.961/S.2006.
If passed into federal law, The SAFE Act would prohibit the slaughter of American equines on U.S. soil and abroad. Because horses aren't raised as food animals in the United States, they're routinely given substances the U.S. Food and Drug Administration prohibits in animals destined for human consumption. It's imperative that we stop slaughtering our nation's horses to prevent toxic horsemeat from entering the global food supply.
Horse slaughter is also an animal welfare issue that's important to me. The SAFE Act (H.R.961/S.2006) will ensure that none of our treasured equine pets, athletes, and companions are subjected to the abuse and cruelty of the slaughter pipeline — which ultimately leads to horrific deaths at slaughterhouses.
Please cosponsor and support The SAFE Act without delay.
