Here’s a little quiz for you. Do drug companies do slow, painful, inaccurate, and expensive tests on thousands of puppies and other dogs because:
(a) they think this is the best way to get safe medications to the people who need them, or
(b) government bureaucrats force them to.
The correct answer is (b)…but don’t be shocked if you didn’t get it right.
A June 2020 national poll of 1,000 taxpayers by Lincoln Park Strategies finds a big majority of them—68 percent!—are unaware that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration demands that drug companies torture and kill about 20,000 dogs per year in wasteful tests even though the companies themselves prefer to test new medicines using cutting edge non-dog technology.
WCW’s monumental new campaign to #CutFDARedTape has a whole lot of support…once people learn why it’s so important!
New polling also finds two-thirds of Americans are with White Coat Waste Project on the urgent need to cut this FDA red tape, as soon as they find out what the government is doing…which is to say, holding industry (and puppies) hostage, blocking lifesaving treatments from patients, and wrecking companies’ bottom line just to fulfill some outdated regulations.
Really, who can blame people for finding the FDA’s Tony Soprano-worthy dog testing racket outrageous, especially while COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on our health and our economy?
The system is sick. The government is to blame. We have the cure!
