POLL: AMERICANS SAY NO TO FUNDING OUR ADVERSARIES, NIH FOREIGN AID

Everyone knows that China and Russia aren’t America’s best friends.

In January 2021, the U.S. government made it official. An interim final rule, issued by the Department of Commerce, listed America’s “foreign adversaries” as China, Russia, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela.

But apparently, the National Institutes of Health didn’t get the memo. In our recent report “Worldwide Waste, we exposed how the NIH makes millions of your tax dollars available to foreign countries — including China and Russia — for wasteful and cruel animal experiments.

The NIH may have no problem sending your tax money to America’s adversaries…but Americans feel differently.

Lincoln Park Strategies asked a thousand taxpayers: “do you support federal legislation to restrict U.S. tax dollars from being spent on animal testing in countries that are foreign adversaries of the U.S. government?”

The response was overwhelming, with 64% of respondents answering in the affirmative.

Notably, the results crossed party lines: 64% of Republican respondents, 65% of Independent respondents, and 67% of Democrat respondents supported a prohibition on funding animal experiments in countries deemed ‘adversaries.’

Seems like a good idea to us.

Now, thanks to an important new WCW-backed bill, that good idea may become the law of the land.

Congresswoman Lisa McClain (R-MI) has introduced a WCW-backed bill called the Accountability in Foreign Animal Research (AFAR) Act to prohibit tax dollars from funding animal experiments in countries that have been deemed foreign adversaries by the U.S. government.

Take action! Tell your members of Congress to support the AFAR Act!
