Put an end to animal testing
Editor: Many people are surprised to learn that animals are still used to test ingredients in makeup, personal care, and everyday household products. However, surveys show that when properly informed about animal suffering, consumers will choose to go cruelty-free. Brands that do or don’t test can be found on Leapingbunny. org.
After all, animals have emotions and possess unique intelligence and sensitivity. And just like us, they experience fear and pain. And what could be more frightening and painful than having chemicals forced into your eyes, down your throat, or rubbed on sensitive skin?
The American Anti-vivisection Society is a leader in the fight to end animal testing. To maximize their effectiveness, they engage with a diverse group of domestic and international partners, including scientists who recognize that animal testing is not only cruel, but unreliable as a predictor of safety in humans.
Through the outreach to consumers American Antivivisection Society has been very successful, but a law is needed in the U.S. to ban animal testing for cosmetics and their ingredients. American Anti-vivisection Society is uniquely positioned to influence decisive action on legislation. For over 130 years, American Anti-vivisection Society has brought informed expertise and determination to combatting animal experimentation. Through their programs and campaigns, they promote scientific alternative methods, provide sanctuary to animals from labs, present humane science teaching tools to educators, published the most trusted cruelty-free list, and protect dogs and cats from unscrupulous dealers.
Though outreach to consumers has been very successful, a voice is needed for the Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R.2790) to urge Congress to end unnecessary animal suffering by passing this legislation. Patricia Marks Wilkes-barre
