Anti-Crush Video Act Passes House, Moves On to Senate

Jul24

CAS_Kitten_01 Great news! On July 21, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an act that would prevent the commercial trade of the horrible “crush” videos (showing women’s high heels crushing and impaling small animals). The vote was almost unanimously in favor. Thank you to everyone who contacted your representative to make this happen! Read my previous post asking you to take action on this act.

Congress is about to adjourn for the summer, but when they return in September, we hope to see the Senate introduce the companion bill and move it just as quickly through the process. I’ll keep you posted.
