In an unprecedented and astounding win for WCW, taxpayers and animals, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced it is permanently canceling its nicotine experiments on monkeys and sending dozens of monkeys involved in the study to a sanctuary. The Washington Post, New York Times, Huffington Post and others are covering the victory.

This major victory follows a WCW exposé and our related lawsuit against FDA, advocacy by world-renowned primate expert Dr. Jane Goodall, efforts by consumer groups, and pleas from tens of thousands of WCW supporters.

Influential Congress members who led Capitol Hill efforts on this campaign praised FDA’s decision:

Help us build on this momentum to clean up waste and abuse across the federal government! Urge your Congress members to support the bipartisan PUPPERS Act to end “maximum pain” experiments on dogs at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

STOP testing on ALL animal testing, if need be test on your own children if you have to test on “something that is alive. We were not put on this earth to kill……

For these squirrel monkeys at last they will be able to live in peace after the horrendous animal testing that has been inflicted upon them in the name of science. Now what about all the other animals tortured every day? It is time to change to the many humane tests that are available and stop abusing animals.

How very cruel..you people who were involved in this horrid study should be ashamed of yourselves.
What horror. I’m disgusted.

Why do they.think they can do this? Let’s not put them back in office. The animals always come FIRST!

Please stop all animal testing immediately.

These inhumane experiences are unnecessary w despicable

Total disgrace how can you subject animals for nonsense lab test

Stop

Stop!
