Senator Cory Booker has introduced unprecedented legislation that would dramatically decrease testing on primates. And in many instances, primate testing will be banned.
There are so many good things about this bill. Here are some of the ways this is going to help animals in need:
Here's how you can help. Without enough support in the Senate this bill can't move forward and help countless primates suffering behind closed doors. Please ask your Senators to co-sponsor this legislation today.
With your support this legislation will make history by making primate testing history. Thank you!
Subject line: Please cosponsor S.3773
I am writing to respectfully request you cosponsor S.3773, a bill by Sen. Booker (D-NJ) that would end many abusive medical experiments involving non-human primates like monkeys.
This legislation is badly needed because the number of primates suffering in isolation in cruel and deadly medical experiments has never been higher.
As of 2017, nearly 76,000 non-human primates are suffering in experiments.
I join the 70% of Americans who oppose the use of non-human primates -
Despite the National Institutes of Health assuring Members of Congress that they were looking to "reduce, replace, and refine" primate experiments, the latest data shows that NIH isn't taking their reduction mandate seriously.
Non-human primates are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom. While other countries are reducing or banning primate testing, in the United States this problem is only getting worse. As such, Sen. Booker's legislation is badly needed, and I hope you will give it your support by cosponsoring it today.
