PETITION TARGET: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
This outdated practice of using animals in research is required for many pharmaceutical products to be approved in the United States.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. 8736) would allow companies to get medications and other products passed without animal testing, according to the bill’s sponsor Rep. Brendan Boyle.
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 Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to pass the Alternatives to Animals for Regulatory Fairness bill, helping to save millions of animals from cruel, archaic, and deadly experiments.
