Poll: Most Taxpayers Didn’t Know FDA Forces Drug Companies To Test On Dogs, And They Want It To Stop!

22 June 2020 | FDA red tape, Newsworthy



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 supportonce 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hostage, blocking lifesaving treatments from patients, and wrecking companies’ bottom line just to fulfill some outdated regulations.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!

Please join our coalition to cut FDA red tape and spare dogs, stop waste, and save lives!

Please stop animal testing

Stop the torture and your useless test

THIS IS SO DAM CRUEL AND NEEDS TO STOP NOW, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND STOP SPENDING TAX PAYERS MONEY TO TORTURE AND BRUTALIZE THESE POOR INNOCENT ANIMALS, THIS TESTING IS JUST BULL SHIT AND THESE PEOPLE ARE SADISTS SO STOP THIS NOW, CUT THE FUNDS FOR GOOD 💩💩💩💩👎👎👎👎😤😤😤😥😤😤😥🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Just please stop

Bad science and morally wrong. Stop testing on animals. NOW.

Only sociopaths are capable of committing violent atrocities on entirely defenseless victims, regardless of what they call it. The FACT is that one must be missing (or turn off) compassion and guilt in order to stay in a job like this just one day. The practice of testing on non-human animals is vile and sickening, and those who involve themselves in it, financially support it, or stand by idly and do nothing to stop it can be described the same way.

Educate your family, children, friends & neighbors frequently about these animal testing statistics – 90% of animal based testing is not relatable to human biochemistry for drug safety. Have these long term discussions in your community & encourage people to write to their Congressional officials to voice their opposition to this broken system. The government using your tax money is suppose to protect its citizens and animals from preventable harm/exploitation.

More laws for animals all over the world.
