You can write all day long and it wont stop a thing. If people can make a $$ from it they will continue to do it.
Instead, energies would be better put to use to make slaughter (both the shipping to and the actual slaughter) more HUMANE for ALL animals. Horses, pigs, cows, chickens etc.
How most animals bound for slaughter are treated is horrible. Have any of you seen films about how chickens are treated and their living conditions? Its disgusting!
The only thing that "stopping slaughter" in the US has done is to make the lives of the animals longer. Longer in pain, longer scared, longer without food or water, longer without a humane end. To me THAT is the real tragedy.
