The Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326) has just been re-introduced in Congress. This legislation aims to end invasive research on the chimpanzees remaining in laboratories, retire the approximately 500 federally-owned chimpanzees to permanent sanctuary (including the elder chimps at NIRC), and make the recent decision by the National Center for Research Resources (part of the National Institutes of Health) to stop funding the breeding of federally-owned chimpanzees permanent.

TAKE ACTION
Please make a brief, polite phone call to urge your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor The Great Ape Protection Act. Call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 or click here to look up your Representative and the Capitol office phone number.

Compassion for all living, feeling life will enrich your own

Two actions all of us have in our power:

1 - Be mindful of what you buy.
Was an animals killed or suffer to test your makeup or shoes or dinner?

Can you substitute non-animal?

2 - Make the powers that be know that you will vote them out, in the case of politicians or not buy their products, in the case of corporations.

 

Animal testing of cosmetics is outlawed in the UK and EU, but continues outside Europe.

No animal testing
         

 

The Mandatory Alternatives Petition seeks to change the way drug testing is done in laboratories before drugs are tested on people. The MAP asks the U.S. FDA to mandate the use of scientifically proven drug testing methods that replace the use of animals.

Indeed, while conflicting animal tests have often delayed and hampered advances on the war on cancer, they have never produced a single substantial advance either in the prevention or treatment of human cancer. -Dr. Irwin Bros, director of Roswell Park Memorial

I have studied the question of vivisection for thirty-five years and am convinced that experiments on living animals are leading medicine further and further from the real cure of the patient. I know of no instance of animal experiment that has been necessary for the advancement of medical science; still less do I know of any animal experiment that could conceivably be necessary to save human life. -H. Fergie Woods, M.D.

There are no alternatives to animal experimentation, for one can only talk of alternatives if these replace something of the same worth; and there is nothing quite as useless, misleading and harmful as animal experimentation. -Prof. Pietro Croce, M.D.
"Giving cancer to laboratory animals has not and will not help us to understand the disease or to treat those persons suffering from it." - Dr. A. Sabin, 1986, developer of the oral polio vaccine

 

 

  • Every year, tens of millions of animals are dissected, infected, injected, gassed, burned and blinded in hidden laboratories on college campuses and research facilities throughout the U.S. Still more animals are used to test the safety of cosmetics, household cleansers and other consumer products. These innocent primates, dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents and other animals are used against their will as research subjects in experiments and procedures that would be considered sadistically cruel were they not conducted in the name of science.

 

An epoch will come when people disclaim kinship with us as we disclaim kinship with the monkeys. -Kahlil Gibran, mystic, poet, and artist (1883-1931)

 

You can make a difference. Just changing ones's attitude does.

torture

Scientific research has shown that warm-blooded animals feel pain and the emotion of fear. In particular mammals, including food animals of this group, have brain structures that enable them to feel fear and suffering from pain, and it is likely that they suffer pain in the same way as humans.
