Stop Torturing, Asphyxiating and Decapitating Animals for Cosmetic Products

Target: Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives

Goal: Prohibit the sale of animal-tested cosmetic products and help save hundreds of thousands of animals from unethical, unnecessary laboratory procedures.

Despite majority public opposition, the use of animals in cosmetic testing is still widely legal in parts of the U.S. Cosmetic tests typically involve exposing animals—mostly mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs—to irritation tests, where animals have potentially toxic chemicals rubbed on their shaven skin and dripped into their eyes. Other common procedures include force-feeding ingredients to animals to determine the long-term effects, or injecting them with chemicals to observe the bodily response. These sentient creatures suffer tremendously throughout the testing process, and once they are no longer of use are brutally killed by means of asphyxiation, neck-breaking or decapitation.

Not only is cosmetic testing cruel, but it is entirely unnecessary. We already know of thousands upon thousands of safe ingredients that can be mixed and morphed into millions of new and improved formulas. Plus, due to advancements in technology, tons of other viable alternatives to direct animal testing now exist. The Humane Cosmetics Act of 2021 was introduced to the House as a way of limiting cosmetic animal testing in the U.S. While many other countries, including Israel, India, and the European Union have all banned the sale of any cosmetics that have been tested on animals, these products and ingredients are still entirely available at mainstream stores and sites throughout America.

The U.S. is lagging behind so many other nations in our treatment of animals. Demand an end to the sale of animal-tested cosmetics.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Representative Pelosi,

The continued use of animals in cosmetic testing throughout the U.S. is rather appalling. Animals—including mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs—are force-fed substances, injected with toxins, and have potentially lethal chemicals dripped into their sensitive eyes. In the face of equally successful alternative methods of testing, cosmetic animal-testing is antiquated and unnecessary. Not to mention there are already hundreds of thousands of ingredients we know to be safe for human use.

The Humane Cosmetics Act of 2021 was recently introduced to the House in hopes that the U.S. would follow the lead of many other countries—such as Israel, India, and the European Union—in banning the sale and distribution of animal-tested cosmetic products. We are asking you, Speaker Pelosi, to support this act and help reduce the number of animals used in cosmetic testing. No being should suffer for our physical preferences.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    These PSEUDO-RESEARCH LABS are perfect workplaces for SADISTIC PSYCHOPATHS and other MENTALLY DERANGED human scum who can gain free access to defenseless and innocent animals and grotesquely abuse and torment them with the law protecting them. These labs need to be closed on an immediate basis and the animals trapped there sent to accredited sanctuaries.

    These innocent,beautiful trusting animals must be protected from those in the name of “testing” them by much stricter laws.Keep these cruel workers where they will be restricted from having any access,as far away from all animals as possible,leaving them at the gates of hell.

    The Humane Cosmetics Act of 2021 is long over due. It is unbelievable that this cruel and evil practice still exists.

  12. Elease M. Bradford says:

    I’m glad the Humane Cosmetics Act was introduced in 2021. I hope the United States will ban the use of animals in cosmetic testing because these practices are barbaric, cruel and appalling. These animals have feelings and I feel it’s unfair to exploit them in this way.
