PETITION TARGET: President of the United Mexican States Andrés Manuel López Obrador
UPDATE(9/9/2021): In a huge victory for animals, Mexico has become the first country in North America to federally ban testing cosmetics on animals.
Mexico’s Senate unanimously passed sweeping federal legislation prohibiting animal testing for cosmetics within its borders and and also banning the manufacture, marketing and import of cosmetics tested on animals elsewhere in the world.
Thank you to the more than 26,000 people who signed our petition demanding an end to this brutal practice in Mexico! It’s a great day for animals!
Every year, hundreds of thousands of innocent animals are force-fed or injected with dangerous chemicals – which burn their eyes and fur, cause convulsions and internal damage, and oftentimes result in painful asphyxiation, neck-breaking or decapitation – for product testing in the cosmetics industry. The world is catching onto this cruelty, and Mexico could be the next country to outlaw this disgusting practice.
If enacted, a new bill passed by the Mexican Senate would prohibit the inhumane and brutal use of animals for testing cosmetics. The new legislation would also outlaw animal-tested cosmetics produced outside of Mexico from being imported into the country.
The bill will now be considered by Mexico’s Chamber of Deputies, and it is crucial that it passes.
By prohibiting cosmetics testing on animals, this new law would save thousands of animals from a torturous death, and Mexico would become the 40th country in the world to ban the horrific practice.
Sign this petition to urge Mexico’s president to fully support this ban and prevent the continued abuse and killing of innocent animals for cosmetics testing.
