House OKs ban on an­i­mal ‘crush’ videos

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

The House passed leg­is­la­tion to make it a fed­eral crime to sell videos de­pict­ing an­i­mal cru­elty in re­sponse to a Supreme Court rul­ing that struck down an ear­lier ver­sion of the law. The mea­sure ad­dresses the court’s free speech con­cerns while aim­ing to stop so-called an­i­mal crush videos that show women in high heels stomp­ing on pup­pies, kit­tens and rab­bits, said Rep. El­ton Gal­legly, RCalif. The Se­nate is ex­pected to ap­prove the bill.
