Congressman brags his bill will 'wipe out' animal rights laws7/19/2012
A GOP congressman is boasting about new legislation that would eradicate much of the progress animal rights activists have achieved, particularly with regard to pork and veal. Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) has sponsored an amendment to the House Farm Bill that would legalize previously banned practices such as tail-docking, putting arsenic in chicken feed, and keeping impregnated pigs in small crates. "My language wipes out everything they’ve done with pork and veal,” King said of his amendment. (Bans on keeping baby cows in similar crates would also likely be lifted in several states). The congressman, who has previously spoken out against other animal rights bills such as anti-dogfighting legislation, said the bill is the "fix we need." [Source]
