Stop Animal Testing on Innocent Animals!
Thousands of animals will suffer and die because of animal testing within the next year. I will continue my campaign until the petition makes a difference on the amount of products imported that are tested on animals.
Testing cosmetics on animals has already been banned in the UK, the EU, India, Israel, Norway, New Zealand and several Brazilian states. Many other countries have promised to introduce similar law-making in the near future. In Australia big brands continue to import cosmetics tested on animals even though these procedures are painful, cruel and unnecessary. By allowing these products to be sold in our country we are effectively supporting the animal testing of cosmetics. The testing is ineffective because their could be a substance to dangerous for the animal but completely fine for humans. Many cases show that some people are getting sick because of the inaccurate results.
With your help, Australia will join the growing list of countries that stop torturing animals for cosmetics.
Animal rights groups are asking members of the public to join in petitioning the Australian Government to place forward a ban on the sale of all cosmetics that are tested on animals.
