      Animals suffering on factory farms urgently need your help.
      Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a version of the Farm Bill that includes the dangerous “King Amendment”—a measure that would override state animal protection laws nationwide.
      If enacted, the King Amendment would nullify the few state laws that do provide protection to farmed animals, such as laws banning cruel crates and cages, prohibiting the force-feeding of ducks, and forbidding horse slaughter and shark finning.
      The shameful King Amendment, proposed by animal cruelty defender Rep. Steve King of Iowa, is also a threat to laws governing environmental protection, worker safety, and more.
      The Farm Bill is currently under review by a joint congressional committee, which has the authority to remove the King Amendment.
      It is crucial that you speak out against this dangerous legislation, which will have devastating consequences if enacted.
      Please contact your U.S. representatives today and urge them to oppose the King Amendment to the Farm Bill.
      Thank you for speaking up on behalf of animals who suffer on factory farms nationwide.
      Sincerely,
