Stop Animal Cruelty! STOP TESTING ON INNOCENT ANIMALS!!!
As you read this, hundreds of mice, rats, cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, monkeys, and other animals are dying in cruel and unnecessary medical and product-testing experiments. In fact, 219 animals are killed every minute in a U.S. lab. They die in pain, alone, without a gentle touch or a soothing voice. Animal studies teach us nothing about the health of humans because animals of different species absorb, metabolize, and eliminate substances differently than humans do. The truth is that testing on animals is bad science: It is unreliable and unnecessary. You can keep the pressure on those responsible for these cruel tests by signing this petition and joining the thousands of caring consumers who refuse to purchase products from corporations that abuse and test on poor innocent animals! We have confirmed L’Oréal tests on animals. Despite claims the company will be going “Cruelty Free” (no animal testing) in 2013, this information is based on their replacing animal testing with human testing. The reports do not yet state all animal testing is to be replaced, however. In any case, there is no evidence the company has ended or will end their animal testing. Although animal testing of pharmaceuticals and certain chemicals is still mandated by law, the arguments against using animals in cosmetics testing are still valid when applied to the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. These industries are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, respectively, and it is the responsibility of the companies that kill animals in order to bring their products to market to convince the regulatory agencies that there is a better way to determine product safety. PETA is actively working on this front by funding development and validation of non-animal test methods and providing input through our involvement on government advisory committees at both the national and international levels. Companies often resist progress and, instead of using human-relevant non-animal tests, choose to use animal tests because their results can be manipulated. Please let companies know how you feel about this—consumers have considerable influence on company policy! I have now added MORE companies to the list, that also seem to be in collaboration with L'Oreal, and are on the top list of companies still testing on animals. Let's be CRUELTY FREE RIGHT NOW! IT SHOULD NOT WAIT! Here is the official list of companies not only make up and fragrance companies, but also companies that make cleaning supplies (Lysol) also test on animals as well.
