The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Horses should not be slaughtered for food in U.S.

Thumbs up to U.S. Rep. John Sweeney, R-Clifton Park, for reintroducing legislation to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption...The Saratogian

"This is a town that loves horses -- for riding, racing and showing. We need to speak up against slaughterhouses in the United States that kill horses for shipment to Europe and Asia as food for humans.

Sweeney's legislation is endorsed by a number of groups, including the Humane Society, the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, Churchill Downs Inc. and Fasig-Tiption Co., which runs the horse auctions in Saratoga Springs and is the nation's oldest and most prestigious thoroughbred auction firm."
