  • Petitioned Companies who use non-human animal testing for any of their products.

This petition was delivered to:

U.S. House of Representatives

Companies who use non-human animal testing for any of their products.: Use ethical and non-animal methods for testing to replace animal testing.

    1. Petition by

      Rachel Berger

      Plano, TX

Use ethical and non-animal methods for testing to replace animal testing.

We need to put an end to the abuse of non-human animals for human interests and entertainment. We can consent to participating in research, but a non-human animal has no means to communicate in our language appropriate means for giving consent (http://www.ehow.com/list_7289094_cons-against-animal-testing.html).

 

"In the UK, for example, a new drug must have been tested on two different species of live mammal. However, those who are opposed to animal testing and view it as an unnecessary infliction of suffering cite that the stress an animal experiences will impact the accuracy of the results, rendering them useless. For now, however, animal testing is required before drugs and some other products are available for consumer use" (http://www.aboutanimaltesting.co.uk/what-animal-testing.html).

 

"In animal testing, countless animals are experimented on and then killed after their use. Others are injured and will still live the remainder of their lives in captivity. The unfortunate aspect is that many of these animals received tests for substances that will never actually see approval or public consumption and use. It is this aspect of animal testing that many view as a major negative against the practice, as it seems that the animal died in vain because no direct benefit to humans occurred" (http://www.aboutanimaltesting.co.uk/using-animals-testing-pros-versus-cons.html).

 

"Although certain animals may be similar to humans in some ways, animals and humans are not biologically identical. The biological differences between humans and animals make it possible for a chemical or substance to be both safe for animals yet toxic to humans" (http://www.ehow.com/list_7289094_cons-against-animal-testing.html).

 

This is not only an animal rights issue, but it is also a human rights issue. We are given access to products for humans, but have been test on non-human animals.

How safe are these products if the companies do not know how humans are affected until after the products are made available to and purchased by consumers?

 

These companies rely on non-human animals to test products for humans.

"The list only includes companies that make cosmetics, personal-care products, or household-cleaning products. PETA’s Caring Consumer Project was founded to help consumers choose products that don’t contribute to animal suffering. No law requires that these types of products be tested on animals."

 

"The list does not include companies that only manufacture products that are required by law to be tested on animals (e.g., pharmaceuticals, certain chemicals, etc.). While PETA opposes all tests on animals, consumer dollars are very powerful when regulations don’t require animal tests. Nonetheless, it is important to let companies that are required to test on animals know that it is their responsibility to convince the regulatory agencies that there are better ways" (PETA website).

 

"George Bernard Shaw once said, 'You do not settle whether an experiment is justified or not by merely showing that it is of some use. The distinction is not between useful and useless experiments, but between barbarous and civilized behavior.' There are some medical problems that can probably only be cured by testing on unwilling people, but we don’t do it because we recognize that it would be wrong. We need to extend this same concern to other living, feeling beings, regardless of what species they may be" (PETA website).

 

An alternative to animal testing is:

"scientists can test whether chemicals will irritate the eyes using the blood vessel-rich membrane lining a hen's egg, rather than exposing the eyes of living animals to the chemical. Cells grown in a test tube (in vitro) and computer simulations can offer a good idea of how animals and humans would respond to certain tests. Those against animal testing advocate three Rs: replacement (finding alternative methods of testing), reduction (using animal testing as little as necessary) and refinement (making sure that animal testing is done in the most humane and pain-free fashion)" (http://www.ehow.com/list_6068022_advantages-disadvantages-animal-testing.html).

      animal testing is POINTLESS, DISGUSTING and DISGRACEFUL. Those who are complicit or condone such testing through ignorance or narcissism are DISGUSTING and DISGRACEFUL.
