Please Co-Sponsor Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858) for Non-Animal Testing

Animals are not meant to be used as experiments and testing and it is still a concern on a national level.  A bill is presented before the House asking for co-sponsorship of the Humane Cosmetics Act. You can read more at https://secure.humanesociety.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=6662&s_src=web_vanity_HCA & http://neavs.org/alerts/info/humane-cosmetics-act-reintroduced.

Improvements have been proposed for the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and signed into law with better safety protection for the humans and the environment while reducing the use of animals in chemical testing. However, there has been a lack of movement on the law before legislation, and that is a concern. 

The Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858) that would put an end to animal testing has been introduced before the House more than a year ago and still sits in limbo. Unless it is put into effect, poor animals may still fall victim to painful and deadly chemical testing for makeup. 

The effort in this petition to urge the House of Representatives to move forward with the Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858) to ensure that animals never have to suffer again through cruel testing practices.  They need to opt for non-animal tests because there is just no reason to harm an animal in just a painful manner. Help me to speak out to the House and say that they need to put an immediate end to cruel cosmetic animal testing through co-sponsoring of the Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858) by signing and sharing this petition, adding your own voice and comments.

U. S. House of Representatives – I strongly urge you to move forward with the Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858) to ensure that animals never have to suffer again through cruel testing practices.  You need to opt for non-animal tests because there is just no reason to harm an animal in just a painful manner. There are many alternatives for testing and experiments than subjecting any animals to these cruel practices. Please ensure that you co-sponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858) and protect animals from undue suffering and pain in the name of outdated science.
