#PROGRESS: EPA Releases Plan To Completely End ‘Horrific And Inhumane’ Animal Testing!!

About a year ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the most comprehensive plan in U.S. government history to completely end “horrific and inhumane” animal testing exposed by WCW and opposed by a supermajority of taxpayers.

This week, the agency took a big step forward by giving us the roadmap for how they’re going to do it! The plan, which you can read here, gets into the nitty gritty of how the EPA will move ahead in reducing the use of animals in chemical testing.

This is a visionary plan to cut wasteful animal testing, and a great move that will benefit animals, taxpayers, industry, and the environment!

The EPA is the very first federal agency to set a timeline for the complete phase-out of taxpayer-funded animal testing.

In September 2019, Secretary Andrew Wheeler committed to fully ending all requirements for, and funding of, testing on mammals by 2035—with a 30 percent reduction of both by 2025.

We really can’t overstate what a big deal this all is so we’ll put it this way instead: !!!!!!!!!!!

And of course this monumental move follows an intensive WCW campaign, advocacy by thousands of WCW supporters, and leadership from Republicans and Democrats in Congress.

Let’s make this just the start! We’ve launched a groundbreaking new campaign called Cut FDA Red Tape, aimed at stopping the FDA, another federal agency, from forcing drug companies to torture and kill puppies.  

Please join our new coalition by signing our action alert to tell lawmakers you want to cut FDA red tape to spare dogs, stop waste, and save lives!

Most of these tests never amount to anything anyway. They just serve to keep the grant money coming in. Also, they keep the beagle breeders in business. Most if not all testing can be conducted using other sources.

Please end animal testing now!’

Long overdue. But very encouraging! So grateful!

Basta test dolorosi e inumani sugli animali
