Spread the News: Tell President Obama to sign the bill to BAN cruel animal "crush" videos

From the Humane Society of United States "H.R. 5566 will ban the creation and distribution in interstate and foreign commerce of obscene videos showing animals being impaled, crushed, drowned, burned, or suffocated -- often by women in stiletto heels -- for the sexual titillation of viewers."

These "crush" videos show high-heeled women crushing kittens to death or lighting rabbits on fire for sick entertainment and profit.

Now that this bill has passed both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate, the next step is to urge President Obama to sign this bill into law.
