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]

  1. It s inexcusable to subject animals to unnecessary suffering just for human vanity.

  2. Maggie Edmonston says:

    Animals do not use cosmetics…so do tests on humans, those who are in prison and unfit to live in the community or volunteers.

    • Carol Jane Brandt says:

      Yes

    • I’ve been saying that for decades! That would be a good deterrent for crime-ing, they go to jail, and the penalty is injecting them with cancer, or putting liquid poison in their eyes. And dissecting their brains for psychology class.

  3. Debra Goldstein-Lustig says:

    PLEASE STOP THIS BARBARIC ACT OF ANIMAL ABUSE AND CRUELTY. ENOUGH ALREADY THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER ALTERNATIVES THAT CAN BE DONE WITH THE SAME OUTCOME. THESE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS DESERVE TO LIVE AND LET LIVE.

  4. Use pedophiles and murderers for testing, not innocent animals

  5. Disgusting!!
    Boycott make up that does this!! Make them mark it on the package!!
    US needs to ban this right away as other countries have.

  6. PERHAPS THE EVIL OF ALL EVILS

    • Julia Edinger says:

      It is one of the worst!!!! Should be used on murders serial killers abusers of animals/children would be the perfect punishment for all evil humans !!!!

  7. I second the comments of both Steph and Maggie Edmonston!

  8. Michelle Stewart says:

    No one ever wants to test things on people, even though the final products are for people. Stop using animals. Offer money to volunteers to test things on them. Leave animals out of it. Stop all animal testing and animal cruelty and animal killing

  9. Julia Edinger says:

    Nancy Pelosi is heartless and greedy she’s worthless,,,,,in protecting children an innocent animals!!!!

  10. Lisa Yarbrough says:

    We should be so far past having to have petitions to stop animal abuse and cruelty. So sad and sickening, humans!

  11. Sandra Schomberg says:

    We are living in the 21st century! Why are they still abusing animals for these ‘tests’!?

  12. For crying out loud you ignorant vain people who don’t care where your shit comes from. There are many on the market now that are vegan or guaranteed cruelty free. Time to think about what you are doing for your vanity.

  13. Wendy+Morrison says:

    STOP ALL THIS ANIMAL TORTURE, CRUELTY, AND ABUSE TO ALL ANIMALS IMMEDIATELY!!!

  14. George C Denniston MD says:

    We will be making progress if we can stop this unnecessary animal testing!
    Nancy Pelosi has a few weeks to do this.
    While we are at it, what about protecting little male humans from a similar atrocity – Partial Penile Amputation (circumcision)?
    Some “doctors,” of all people, are severely harming millions of American boys on a daily basis. They do so because they have been harmed by the procedure, and are compelled to harm others. As with the rabbits used in the testing, only the law can stop this madness, and permit American men to be able to have normal sexual relations.

  15. Cathy McCormick says:

    Horrific, disgusting, and nauseating! Testing on innocent animals must be stopped immediately!

  16. Patricia Wicker says:

    YOU ARE EVIL SADISTIC CRUEL MONSTERS FOR DOING THIS!!!! STOP!!

  17. Gerald George Ryan says:

    HOW MANY MILLIONS OF PETITIONS HAVE TO SCREAM ABOUT THE OBSCENITY AND USELESS TORTURE OF ANIMAL TESTING, OR IS “HUMANITY” JUST TOO STUPID, DECADENT, OR INHERENTLY CDRUEL AND CORRYPT??????

  18. Jeanne Marie Cambouris says:

    EVERYONE KNOWS ANIMAL TESTING IS JUST A MONEY MAKING DEAL FOR THE CORRUPT BASTARDS THAT BREED AND SELL ANIMALS TO BE ORTURED IN LABS???? THAT’S HOW WE PUT THALIDOMIDE ON THE MARKET, remember???????? THERE SHOULD BE A SPECIAL HELL FOR THE MUTANTS WHO SELL USELESS TORTURE FOR PROFIT!!

  19. Jeanne C Bradbury says:

    ANIMALS SOLD TO LABS FOR USELESS, MORE OFTEN FAULTY, IS THE VERY DEFINITIONS OF PIMP: LOOK IT UP: pimp: PROFITING FROM THE EXPLOITATION OF ANOTHER LIBING BEING.

  20. Maria Lavorato says:

    How can this still be happening!…in 2022!????????
    Animals are not yours to torture in these totally unnecessary ways for friggon cosmetics!

    Test on each other. Force feed yourself with poisons!. You heartless sadistic monsters. Any company or anyone involved or approving these actions should be shut down and charged with felony charges.

    Animal protection agencies should remove all the animals and send them to sanctuaries to heal!
