UPDATE (7/29/21): This legislation has been passed by the House of Representatives and now awaits action by the Senate.

Original post

It’s been just two weeks since we released our Worldwide Waste exposé that uncovered how the National Institutes of Health has been shipping millions in foreign aid to other countries to fund wasteful and cruel animal experiments.

Our investigation immediately caught the attention of lawmakers and media outlets, and now Congress is taking action.

On the heels of our exposé, the House Appropriations Committee included a WCW-backed measure in the NIH’s 2022 spending bill requesting information about oversight of animal experiments in foreign countries (see page 5).

That’s what we call INSTANT IMPACT.

We’re grateful to two-time WCW Waste Warrior awardee Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) for championing this measure in the bill.

 

The bill–which also defunds the Wuhan animal lab— now goes to the full House of Representatives for a vote, then to the Senate, then to the President for his signature! We are working our tails off to make sure it becomes law, and will keep you posted.

Is this how you want your money spent?! Tell the NIH to stop shipping your tax dollars overseas for animal testing!
