STATE SENATE RACES
Please Vote Out GOP: Party Of Trophy Hunters, Lab Animal Torture, Slaughterhouse Megacorporations



How Are Your Candidates On Animal Rights?

Every single Republican senator except the ailing Johnny Isakson (who has a terrible record regarding animals) voted to allow hunters for the 1st time into our national park wildlife refuge in Alaska. 220 Republican congresspersons listed below voted for the bill which Donald Trump quickly signed. The bill pushed by Congress' worst animal abuser Don Young of Alaska allows aerial hunting of animals, baiting of bear traps, the use of hidden snares and the murder of bear cubs and wolf puppies in their dens by stalking trophy hunters and other hunters terrorizing animals. 220 Repubicans in the House including Marsha Blackburn of Tennessealso voted to murder nearly 1000 sea lions.

Despite the human chauvinism of OnTheIssues org which does not list animal rights as a category on which to rate candidates, one can go to the Humane Society Legislative Fund Scorecard for senators and representatives.

He has harmed millions of animals. He said "I've always been a rodent and rabbit hunter.".

Mitt Romney gave 1.9 million dollars in Burger King stock to the Mormon church which is the church most invested in animal slaughter and meat, as well as the church running the biggest calf slaughter operation in the US (Deseret in Florida). Romney as owner of IHart Radio through the sole owership of Bain Capital has profiteered from and promoted animal slaughter products. He advocated sending 50,000 more troops to Iraq (none of his own 5 sons) both in his campaign and through the talk show hosts on his radio network.
