Delilah’s Law Will Stop Gov Labs From Spending Your Money At China’s Wet Markets!

We’ve finally got a long-awaited bill, that we really wish we didn’t need.

Last week we told you about our coming bipartisan effort to stop federal government labs from spending a single cent of your tax dollars ever again to buy cats and dogs for slaughter at China’s disgusting live animal markets.

Well, we are thrilled to tell you: the bill (S. 3628) has officially been filed!

Bill lead U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA)–a 2019 WCW Waste Warrior awardee–and WCW VP Justin Goodman joined Scott Taylor with Washington, DC’s WJLA to discuss why this legislation is so badly needed.

We’re calling this legislation Delilah’s Law, after a cat who survived the wasteful government experiments that forced kittens to eat cat meat purchased from China’s wet markets, and that WCW exposed and ended last year. (We brought Delilah to Capitol Hill to meet the lawmakers who saved her, last year.)

Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR), who helped lead Congressional efforts to shut down the USDA’s “kitten slaughterhouse,” with Delilah, one of the lab’s survivors. WCW brought Delilah to Capitol Hill to meet the lawmakers who saved her on July 25, 2019.


We got the kitten slaughterhouse shut down, and now we’re working with lawmakers to make sure none of your money is ever used to support wet markets again.

Thank you to Senators Ernst, Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Mike Braun (R-IN), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) for their leadership in introducing this very important legislation—to prevent the U.S. government from wasting any more of your tax dollars at China’s wet markets where wildlife, and cats and dogs, are sold and butchered for human consumption.

Please lend your voice and sign for our petition to make sure NO taxpayer dollars to go to China’s wet markets.
