Ali MacGraw Fights Horse Slaughter Legalization

Actress Ali MacGraw is speaking out against the recent re-legalization of the slaughter of horses for meat.


In spite of the fact that 70 percent of Americans oppose the use of horses for meat, the transport of horses for slaughter became legalized last year after being outlawed for years. Now, animal-welfare advocates are speaking out in hopes of permanently reinstituting a ban. Among them is Love Story actress Ali MacGraw, who has joined forces with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in efforts to raise awareness about the issue and encourage the passage of the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011. Recently, MacGraw penned an open letter to New Mexico senator Tom Udall pleading for his support. “On behalf of everyone who loves horses and despises inhumane treatment of them,” she writes, “… please, lend your support to the critical American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011 immediately.”
