Obama Legalizes Horse Slaughter for Human Consumption

Excerpts: Horse slaughter plants are legal again in the United States. Restrictions on horse meat processing for human consumption have been lifted. courtesy of Google Images

In a bipartisan effort, the House of Representatives and the United States Senate approved the Conference Committee report on spending bill H2112, which among other things, funds the United States Department of Agriculture. On November 18th, as the country was celebrating Thanksgiving, President Obama signed a law, allowing Americans to kill and eat horses. Essentially, one turkey was pardoned in the presence of worldwide media while in the shadows, buried under pages of fiscal regulation, millions of horses were sentenced to death.


In 2008
President Obama made a campaign promise to permanently ban horse slaughter and exports of horses for human consumption.

Wyoming state representative Sue Wallis and her pro-slaughter group estimate that between 120,000 and 200,000 horses will be killed for human consumption per year and that Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Georgia and Missouri, are considering opening slaughter plants.

During these trying times, is the only thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is that Americans need to eat horses?

    For eating Delicious food in a fine dining restaurant? Why are you a vegetarian. What that chip on your shoulder...you need to brush it off. You are also clueless to other cultures and what farm grown means. No different than cattle here in this country. You must be ignorant and never travel.

    I just hope they don't find a way to disguise it and sell it like chop meat without us knowing. I'd rather eat deer meat if I couldn't get beef.

    Not really undecided - the other answer choices were just too dumb to pick from. I would not eat horse, because of personal prejudice, just as I would also never willingly eat dog, cat, monkey or rabbit - to me they are pets, not a food source. People in other parts of the world feel otherwise.

    The 5yr ban did not prevent horses from being slaughtered, they were shipped to Canada and Mexico to be slaughtered for consumption. PETA actually supports the lifting of the ban, especially if exporting of the horses is also banned.
    Even if I ate animals, I would not be eating a horse.....

    Do you know why chickens and Dogs are not on the endangered species list? Private ownership. I'm sure horse meat will be a very lean meat, letting for less heart problems.

    Meh. Was only a 5 year ban anyway, and still would never become popular enough to make a dent in the other species we eat.

    Just because we can ride them doesn't magically make them unable to be slaughtered an eaten. We torture countless animals every day for cheeseburgers, so what's the difference?

    I would rather ride them than eat them. I suppose it is the wild horses that they are going to go after. I read a story several months ago of a lady who was trying to round some of them up and put them on her private land and start a horse sanctuary, but the govt stopped her from doing it. What does Obama have to gain by doing this?

    It's probably an economic decision, the ban was only put in place around 5 years ago. And after that all the business has been taking place in Canada, American horses are still being slaughtered for meat, they are just shipped to Canada and then to the rest of the world. So it doesn't change anything, it just makes it legal again to serve horse meat and slaughter the animals in America.

    Have had horse meat and it tastes bad and has a nasty texture. But I am sure there are some minority or illegal aliens that will buy the stuff.

    Can anyone provide the specific text of the bill that lifts the ban on horsemeat for human consumption? I looked at the text myself, but didn't see it addressed other than the fact that it prohibited funding of FDA inspections of horse meat (for human consumption). The article in the link provided cited no source to back up what it claimed.

    Okay, I did some more research and understand what has happened now. The prior ban was "lifted" via not being included in the current bill. I learned that the slaughtering of horses (prior to the ban) was a $62 million dollar industry in the U.S. and the horses were not slaughtered for humans to eat the meat, but were slaughtered so that their bodies could be rendered and made into all kinds of products we use daily. Think about it: What do we do with our dead horses? Some people bury or cremate them, but most have them picked up by rendering companies. It is really not as heinous as it sounds, and the objective of lifting the ban was in no way meant to promote the human consumption of horsemeat. Check your facts people - I can't say it often enough. :-)
