British Government: Abolish Animal Experiments!

    1. Petition by

      Anti Vivisection Coalition (AVC)

4.11 million animals were used in repugnant experiments in the UK during 2012. A joint report released last month by three British Government departments detailed the continued expansion of animal experimentation and lack of a coherent strategy to end the practice.

We – the undersigned – state animal experimentation is an act which must be abolished in our society, the lack of political will to end the practice must be discarded and sufficient replacements exist to the cruelty performed in our nation's laboratories.

We therefore support the Anti-Vivisection Coalition's charter demanding an immediate ban on:

1) All psychology experiments

2) All burns, skin and eye irritancy tests

3) All experiments involving primates, dogs and cats

4) All warfare experiments

5) All household products, ingredients and foodstuffs testing

6) All experiments licensed as inducing severe suffering

We further support demands for an absolute commitment to:

1. End all toxicology experiments by 2018

2. Abolish all animal experiments by 2024

      I'm singing because i love animals. Because i strongly believe it is wrong to take advantage of living creatures, just because they can't speak for themselves. Why don't you take human beings for experiments?! Why don't you take your own family?! You consider that wrong?! Well it is...and it is just as wrong to do it on animals...i know science needs to evolve, as some would say, but if you are as intelligent as you say, you should find another way, a proper way!
