Stop Deadly Party Pills Drug Testing on Animals in New Zealand

Target: Peter Dunne, Associate Health Minister

Goal: Stop killing animals unnecessarily to test the effects of drugs

The possible continuation of party pills testing on animals has once again sparked protest from local animal activists in New Zealand. Animal testing is allowed in New Zealand if the results outweigh the consequences. However, according to Bob Kerridge from the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), the new party pills testing is completely unnecessary and can only be detrimental to the animals. Despite his and hundreds of other people’s concerns, the animals may still be tested for the benefit of humans.

These poor animals, usually dogs, cattle, and rodents, are sentenced to their deaths once they are forced to become a part of a cruel scientific experiment that does not promise any benefits. Based off of last year’s statistics, roughly 300,000 lab animals died or were put down due to the drugs. These tests also did not present any useful results, further supporting the fact that these experiments may not be advantageous at all. Similar tests were done last year primarily on dogs and rats, and 80,000 of them were killed.

A recent ruling prohibiting the ID 50 test has helped the animals. The ID 50 test allows for the administration of drugs until half of the sample size has died. Although this government ruling is positive, it still does not protect animals from experiments that do not have any benefits. New Zealand must be stricter with its animal testing laws and forbid the distribution of the party pills which will definitely kill more animals.

Furthermore, in this particular situation, Kerridge clearly expresses his doubts over what benefits an experiment for party pills will generate. In addition, the negative usage associated with party pills calls into question scientists’ intentions. These party pills experiments must not be administered.

Call upon Peter Dunne, Associate Health Minister, to prohibit these unnecessary experiments.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Peter Dunne, Associate Health Minister

The recent ruling that stopped the ID 50 test was a huge and positive step on your part. Now, animals will not be needlessly subjected to drugs until half the sample size has been depleted. However, this ruling still does not protect the animals from pointless experiments that end up killing thousands while producing no outcome.

The opposition involving the party pills drug testing aims to protect innocent animals from a useless experiment. Testing the effects of party pills does not really have benefits; we know that party pills harm humans. Thus, you must stop the administration of this experiment and save these animals from horrible deaths.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Why don’t they experiment on humans? They are the ones who use this stuff, not innocent defenseless animals who have not given their consent.

  2. P. S. Reactions to drugs differ among different species. We cannot extrapolate the results to the effects on humans.

  3. Sharyn Shubert says:

    stop all testing on animals, it is not necessary and the results do not do anything to help humans, they only torture and kill animals. We are the sick ones just for doing it.
