PETITION TARGET: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
UPDATE (2/13/2023): We sent our petition, signed by more than 39,000 people, to the Speaker of the House. Thank you to everyone who signed! Unfortunately this bill did not pass, but in good news for animals everywhere, the FDA Modernization Act — passed at the end of 2022 — no longer requires tests on animals for FDA approval. We’ll keep doing all we can for animals! — Lady Freethinker Staff
This outdated practice of using animals in research is required for many pharmaceutical products to be approved in the United States. But that could soon change.
The Alternatives to Animals for Regulatory Fairness (AARF) bill (H.R. 1905) would allow companies to get medications and other products passed without animal testing.
More than 90 percent of drugs that pass in animal testing procedures don’t work for humans. Yet, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) still requires it. And at a critical point in its development, researchers fast-tracked a COVID-19 vaccine without first testing it on animals, begging the question: is it really necessary at all?
Modern technology has given us viable alternatives to animal testing that are more accurate, effective, and humane.
Let’s stop government-sponsored animal abuse.
Sign this petition urging House leaders to pass the Alternatives to Animals for Regulatory Fairness bill, helping to save millions of animals from cruel, archaic, and deadly experiments.
