Target: Alex Gorsky, CEO of Johnson & Johnson
Goal: Thank Johnson & Johnson for ending its cruel practice of cutting open and killing pigs.
It recently came to light that the popular company, Johnson & Johnson, has been cutting open and killing pigs in its laboratories to show sales personnel how its surgical medical device products work and what their purposes are. Thankfully, the company has now put an end to that practice.
After hearing the concerns of thousands of people from all over, including many from ForceChange, Johnson & Johnson announced that it “has discontinued live animal use in sales training across our North America region. Further, we are working to discontinue this practice globally by December 31, 2016.”
Sign this petition and thank the company for making the compassionate change. Countless animals will now be spared from unnecessary pain and death.
Dear Mr. Gorsky,
Recently, it was brought to the public’s attention that your company has been cutting open and killing pigs in order to show sales personnel how your surgical medical device products work. Many people were not happy with this practice considering pigs are gentle and intelligent animals who can experience pain and fear just like humans.
Instead of turning a blind eye to the public’s anger, you decided to address it by announcing that this practice will be discontinued internationally by the end of this year. Thank you for listening to the public and making the compassionate change. Countless animals will now be spared from unnecessary pain and death thanks to your actions.
[Your Name Here]
