To coincide with Tax Week 2018, White Coat Waste Project just launched a national campaign to defund the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) wasteful and deadly multi-million-dollar air pollution animal tests. Our exposé last month uncovered how your tax dollars are funding EPA tests on more than 20,000 animals annually that include forcing them to eat lard and then inhale diesel exhaust and smog.
As reported by conservative outlet Christian Broadcasting Network, liberal site Lady FreeThinker, and others, we’re bringing the message to the EPA’s doorstep with this hard-hitting billboard on a busy highway near the agency’s main animal testing lab in North Carolina:
We’ve also launched EPASucks.org, an online advocacy campaign asking Americans to write EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Congress and urge them to cut funding for wasteful animal tests that experts and the EPA itself acknowledge are slow, costly and ineffective.
Legendary Republican political strategist Roger Stone penned an op-ed in The Daily Caller calling on President Trump to “drain the EPA swamp” by defunding the EPA’s animal tests.
This isn’t a partisan issue. Christian Broadcasting Network notes that new polling shows that an astounding 79 percent of Republicans and 68 percent of Democrats support cutting federal spending on EPA animal testing.
Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has been one of the most outspoken critics of the EPA, and recently took to the House floor to denounce the agency’s cruel animal tests exposed by WCW:
“We sure find a lot of ways to waste money in this town, but the EPA may just have reached a new low.”
Join WCW, Rep. Gaetz and others by telling EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and Congress to dump the EPA’s toxic waste on animal testing.
Animal testing (abuse) is archaic and cruel! Stop!
We ALL know that INHALING diesel fuel is harmful (to say the least). This kind of torture is senseless and serves no purpose whatsoever! It must CEASE! I wish not one penny of our hard earned tax dollars to be spent on this kind of ABUSE!
Stop these needless cruel and horrid acts!!
The people who conduct these so called experiments are Bogus scientist’s working for a paycheck only! (NO SCIENCE INVOLVED!) As we all know breathing this poison is B A D !!!! MAY THEY ALL GO TO THEIR JUST REWARDS!!!!
60 Minutes needs to do this story with Anthony & staff
60 Minutes needs to do the WCW story–appealing to taxpayers & animal lovers
If THEY had to inhale those fumes, they wouldn’t be so anxious to inflict
them on the innocent and defenseless.
This need to STOP !

How would YOU like to go through horrific testing all your life, day after day…and not be able to get away? YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE WITH GOD IF NOT HERE! NEED TO CLOSE DOWN ALL THESE DESPICABLE LABS AND THE PEOPLE WHO INFLICT THIS HORRIFIC AND UNNECESSARY CRUEL TESTING ON THESE VULNERABLE HELPLESS ANIMALS!!!
Stop wasting my tax dollars on such useless, needless and cruel testing on animals. Am tired of all the government waste that seems to be justified. Get out there and find out what’s important tax spending by
public opinion, not by bureaucrats.
