Stop Torturing Animals in Labs for Testing

Target: FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock

Goal: Urge the FDA to end animal testing in the U.S.

Imagine a syringe being forced down your throat to inject a chemical into your stomach, or being restrained and forced to breathe sickening vapors for hours. That’s the cruel reality of animal testing for millions of mice, rabbits, dogs, and other animals worldwide.

Animal testing has been used for decades in scientific research, despite its unreliable nature. Dozens of species are used in testing, with at least 115 million animals used every year, though that number is likely a substantial underestimate. Testing on animals has historically helped in some cases, but does not provide great evidence or results overall. Nine out of 10 times results that seem safe when used on animals do not work on humans.

The types of testing used on animals include forced chemical exposure; exposure to drugs, chemicals, or infectious disease that cause pain or death, genetic manipulation; short or prolonged periods of physical restraint; food and water deprivation; infliction of wounds, burns, and other injuries to study healing; infliction of pain to study its physiology and treatment; electric shock or forced swimming; and killing by carbon dioxide asphyxiation, neck-breaking, decapitation, or other means.

It is time for scientists to move to other, more accurate forms of testing, like human-genome sequencing or computational biology. However, animal testing is viewed as the default method, and old habits die hard. Call on the FDA to end the suffering of millions and stop animal testing.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Woodcock,

Animal testing has repeatedly been shown to be unreliable, especially when viewed next to more accurate and current methods such as human-genome sequencing or computational biology. Not only is it unreliable, with only 1 out of 10 results of animal testing working for humans, but it is dangerous as well.

Well over 100 million animals and dozens of species are used in aggressive forms of testing every year. These forms of testing range from periods of physical restraint to chemical exposure and death through various means. It is past time to let this archaic form of testing end, and move to test methods of the 21st century.

Please, end animal testing today.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    It must be made illegal all over the world to test products on animals that are meant for humans. Test products on people instead.

    These vile and evil experiments committed against such defenceless and innocent sentient beings should be committed against the monster lowluife humans that commit it against their precious and helpless victims.
    It is time for all these lowlife animal torturing murdering human monsters were eradicated from our planet.
    Leave the precious and innocent animals (sentient beings)alone you vile and evil lowlife psychopathic animal torturing murdering human monsters from hell. Die you evil lowlife human
    monsters. No innocent sentient beings worldwide are safe from the psychopathic animal torturing murdering filthy human species.

  3. FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock,

    Please be an advocate for animals and urge the FDA to END animal testing in the U.S. The results from testing on animals aren’t only unreliable, they also are very CRUEL.

    I suggest that products be tested on people instead.

    Dear Commissioner Woodcock,
    Please urge the FDA to end animal testing! THIS IS NEEDLESS CRUELTY! THIS SHOULD BE BANNED WORLD WIDE!

    There are humane methods to get research done IN THE 21ST CENTURY! Research should not be at the cost of innocent beings! NO GOOD CAN COME FROM SUBJECTING ANY ANIMAL TO TORTURE! THIS IS NOT WHAT GOD INTENDED!

    I pray that anyone testing on animals die the same painful death!

  5. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?? CRUEL, EVIL, WICKED SO CALLED `HUMAN BEINGS`, WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU. NO ANIMALS…EVER…ARE NEEDED TO BE USED, TESTED, ABUSED FOR ANYTHING. THERE ARE ENOUGH HUMANS ON THIS PLANET TO DO THAT WITH, NOT DEFENCELESS, MUTE ANIMALS THAT CAN ONLY SCREAM. STOP IT NOW. YOU HAVE NO SENSE OF MORALITY, ETHICS OR ANY FEELINGS AT ALL, THAT IS QUITE OBVIOUS.
    YOU ARE DISGUSTING AND THE SHAME IS ALL YOURS….SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON ALL OF YOU INVOLVED IN THIS. YOU ARE MAKING YOUR KARMA NOW, WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IN IT OR NOT DOES, NOT MATTER. YOU WILL KNOW IT. STOP THESE REPREHENSIBLE, VILE ACTIONS NOW.

  6. We don’t need to use animals for medical testing anymore. We now have the ability to use human stem cells to see how different drugs will affect the human body without needing to hurt any animals or people.

  7. To torture animals makes you a mentally deranged , psychopath!

    The trouble with these so-called “scientists” is that they are just sadists who enjoy inflicting pain on others. And (as animals can’t fight back) they are the ideal prey for brutal “experiments”. The “scientists” just invent these “experiments” because (1) they are unemployable in the real world; (2) they earn their inflated incomes by duping big businesses to finance the “experiments” by brainwashing the financiers into thinking that the money is being used for the good of the planet; and (3) to satisfy their deviant sexual and brutish fantasies with impunity and no fear of getting caught.

  9. Conducting animal lab testing must be banned internationally.Conduct all required tests on prisoners.

  10. All those who think testing on animals is OK need to become the ones tested on…for the rest of their lives…IMO

  11. These evil cretins who conduct tests on animals most definatetly must be exterminated.A slow and agonsing death for these evil scumbags is essent5ial!! An eye for an eye!!!!!!

  12. Testing on animals is a waste of time and money, because animals will not be in the same situations or react the same way that humans would. This is just cruel sadistic torture of animal beings that should fall under the animal cruelty laws.

    You should consider testing on animal abusers. That way you would have a much more reliable test result, as these creeps are human, and it would serve them right for hurting innocent beings who can’t speak for themselves. I speak for them.

  13. Outdated and irrelevant !!! Support cruelty free brands and boycott any companies testing on animals. Go holistic go natural
