Congress is continuing to crack down on funding for the entities responsible for dangerous coronavirus experiments on bats and humanized mice that may have caused the pandemic.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives both passed legislation that defunds the Wuhan Animal Lab.

Now, following a WCW campaign, the House has voted to prohibit the Department of Defense from funding EcoHealth Alliance, the shady U.S. non-profit that funneled tax dollars to the Wuhan lab and has refused to answer questions from Congress about it. EcoHealth has received tens of millions of dollars from the DOD for risky virus experiments on animals. The effort was led by Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) and garnered bipartisan support.

Earlier this year, Rep. Reschenthaler also introduced the Defund EcoHealth Alliance Act to permanently prohibit any federal funding for the group.

Take action! Urge your Members of Congress to cosponsor the Defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology Act and permanently prohibit taxpayer funding for this dangerous and cruel lab!

I NOT ABOUT TO WASTE MY TAX MONEY ON USELESS EXPERIEMENTS ON INNOCENT ANIMALS

Please defund this lab!

Time for America to sever any ties or subsidies to Wuhan Lab!

BASTA finanziare sperimentazioni dolorose e inaccettabili sugli animali, sono disponibili tecnologie più ettendibii che non prevedono sfruttamento degli animali innocenti e indifesi
