Horse Slaughter is already illegal in the US. Also, it seems that the majority of the forum is pro-slaughter.

It used to be, but president obama has withdrawn the ban, so it's now legal again.

The alternative is that 1000s more horses will be shipped 100s of miles across country lines, in cramped trailers, into Mexico so they can be slaughtered there.
Making slaughter illegal in America just makes for more suffering all around.

Please help them to what?

Take a long and horrible ride to Canada, or worse to Mexico.

To stand about in horrible conditions because there are to many horses and no one will buy them.

Help them be turned out into the wild which is nothing like a Disney existence?

So no I wont help all those things

Help more horses starve? Take a trip out of the country to have God knows what done to them? Help keep the horse market completely at a stand still? Uh yeah, thanks, not so much.

Could you please post a link or give a citation to a news source regarding repeal of the ban?

I am not able to find one.

Also, I didn't think slaughtering horses for meat was ever made *illegal*, I thought the last two meat packing plants willing to do it wre closed by other means.

I wasn't aware of this:

"Update November 18, 2011: Both the House of Representatives and the Senate have now approved the Conference Committee report on H.R. 2112, the bill that, in part, determines agriculture appropriations for FY 2012. President Barack Obama immediately signed the measure, making commercial horse slaughter legal once again in the U.S."

U.S. Equine Slaughter Legal Again | Animal Law Coalition

"Language that ended domestic horse slaughter and processing in the United States was stripped from the Ag Appropriations bill approved by Congress as part of a larger spending package.

Dave Duquette, President of the United Horsemen's group, says there were no riders prohibiting the inspection of horse meat, which he says is a huge victory. Duquette says he had been told by many people that horse slaughter would never return to this country, but he says they are going to have to take another look."

I consider it good news.

I think if people would stop breeding their horses, then it'd be a little more manageable and less would be slaughtered :/ but that's my opinion.

I wish no horses had to be killed.. but sadly we cannot save them all :/
