Nevada Passes Bill Banning Animal Testing For Cosmetics

By Liam Gilliver

‘Exciting progress’ (Photo: Adobe. Do not use without permission)

Nevada has become the latest state in the US to ban the sale of animal-tested cosmetics but will exempt products imported from China, which by law have to be tested on animals.

The Nevada Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act (SB 197), which was first introduced to state legislators in February, will take effect from January 1, 2020.
‘No longer necessary or acceptable’

Senator Melanie Scheibel, who authored the bill, told Cruelty-Free International: “For more than 50 years animals have been used in painful tests for cosmetics. But science and public opinion have evolved and today it is no longer necessary or acceptable to harm animals for new cosmetics.

“The time has come to make cruel cosmetics a thing of the past and I am proud that Nevada is leading the way.”
Not a ‘total victory for animals’

Animal-rights organization PETA said: “While the new law is certainly exciting progress, we’re not quite ready to call this one a total victory for animals,” while pointing out the exemption of countries such as China.

Nevada follows in the footsteps of California, who passed a similar law against animal-testing earlier this years, that will also come into effect from January 2020.

Sign Petition: Ban Animal Testing for Cosmetics Now!

thepetitionsite.com

by: Alicia Graef
recipient: U.S. Congress

Help push for the reintroduction and passage of landmark legislation that could end the suffering of millions of animals who are needlessly tortured and killed to test cosmetics in the U.S.

The Humane Cosmetics Act, has been introduced with bipartisan support in the 113th and 114th Congress, but was never passed out of committee. It was introduced again, but has yet to make progress. The bill as written will make it illegal to conduct or commission animal testing for cosmetics after a one year phase in, which will be followed by a ban on the sale of products and ingredients that were made using animal testing after three years.

Even though animal testing is not required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the Product Safety Commission in the U.S., and despite the fact that alternatives to animal testing exist, many companies continue to test their products and ingredients on animals. In fact, the FDA leaves it up to companies to substantiate the safety of their own products and recalls are left entirely up to manufacturers.

Hundreds of ethical companies have already proven that valid alternatives exist, while dozens of other countries have taken steps to end animal testing for cosmetics. Now it’s time for the U.S. to catch up and end this inhumane practice.

Please sign the petition asking your representative to support and co-sponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act.

As someone who cares about animal welfare, I am asking you to support the reintroduction of the Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858 from the 114th Congress) and hope you will support and co-sponsor this groundbreaking piece of legislation.

For decades millions of animals have been used in cruel and wasteful experiments for nothing more than human vanity. However, advances in science have proven that there are alternatives available to test the safety of cosmetics hitting the market and thousands of ingredients have already been listed as safe.

This legislation will make it illegal to conduct or commission animal testing for cosmetics after a one year phase in, which will be followed by a ban on the sale of products and ingredients that were made using animal testing after three years.

While hundreds of ethical companies have already pledged not to test on animals, a number of other countries have also already taken steps to end animal testing for cosmetics proving that it’s an unnecessary practice that belongs in the past, including Israel, Norway and India. Korea, Brazil and ASEAN are also taking steps to end cosmetics testing on animals. In June, China will end its mandatory animal testing requirement for imported cosmetics.

The European Union’s ban on the testing and marketing of animal-tested cosmetics and ingredient that was enacted in 2013 was a major milestone for animals in labs and further proof that testing is unnecessary.

There’s no reason for the U.S. to continue to lag so far behind on this issue.

With global markets closing their doors to products that have been tested on animals, a move by the U.S. to ban animal testing for cosmetics would not only be an ethically sound one, but will also allow the U.S. to continue to compete in these markets.

I sincerely hope you will support and co-sponsor this critical piece of legislation to end the needless suffering of animals in labs and help the U.S. stay current in the global marketplace.

3 Easy (But Effective) Ways to Support World Day for Laboratory Animals | Care2 Healthy Living

1439930561490095.jpg

While you’re reading this in the comfort of your home or office or maybe at a cozy coffee shop somewhere, there are an estimated 115 million animals enduring unspeakable pain and suffering in laboratories around the world.

They’ve never known freedom or what it means to be loved and cared for. They’ve never set foot outside. They have no identity, bar for a number tattooed on the inside of their ear. They’re seen as a means to an end, nothing more.

WHY ANIMAL RESEARCH IS FLAWED

It’s 2019. You’d think by now we’d have put these archaic ways behind us. Sadly, we haven’t. To make matters worse, animal testing has proven time and again to produce flawed results.

A study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) concluded that along with being unreliable, animal experimentation also poses a harm to humans. Yet still we persist.

There are numerous cases where animal test results failed to predict dangers. In once instance, a drug that showed no ill effects on mice, rats and monkeys resulted in death and brain damage when given to human volunteers.

LET’S PUT AN END TO ANIMAL TESTING FOR GOOD

Animal research has to stop, and it’s up to us as individuals to make that happen. We can take a stand, we can petition and protest, we can vote with our pocketbooks. We can be the voice for the voiceless.

World Day for Laboratory Animals

1. Help Spread the Word

The easiest way is to make a difference is to spread the word on social media. Tell people about World Day for Laboratory Animals (April 24) and Lab Animal Week, which runs until the end of April. Ask them to share the message, too.

Talk about it to your friends, family and colleagues. Encourage them to shop responsibly by supporting cruelty-free brands. The more we put it out there, the better our chances of putting an end to this abhorrent practice.

2. Get Heard

If you live in the U.K., ask your MP to sign Early Day Motion #2228: Developing Innovative Science – Better for Animals. You can find a template letter at Animal Defenders International.

The biggest march for laboratory animals the UK has seen in recent years is taking place in Oxford on Saturday, April 27. Home to a university experimenting on the largest number of animals in Britain, it seems only fitting that protesters gather there.

In the US and Canada, you can help put an end to animal testing for cosmetics and the sale of animal-tested products by asking your legislator to support the US Humane Cosmetics Act.

You could also petition brands directly if you know they test their products on animals. Care2.com has enjoyed many wins with this method. Our Start a Petition page has all the information you need to make your cause heard.

3. Vote With Your Dollar

Taking action and spreading the word are important, and there’s also something you can do every single day that will have a big impact. Choose to support only those brands that sport the Leaping Bunny Logo.

It’s easy enough to spot on the packaging, but you can also search by company or brand name as well as browse by product category on the Cruelty Free International website. Every dollar spent with a like-minded company is a vote against animal testing.

HERE’S WHY YOU NEED TO SUPPORT A CRUELTY FREE WORLD

There are lots of other ways to make a difference, such as helping research animals get adopted and donating to organizations that are fighting to put an end to animal testing.

Since its inception 40 years ago, World Day For Laboratory Animals has resulted in one million fewer tests on animals. A lot of lab animals have also been saved. Take a look at these video clips to see why it’s so important to support a cruelty-free world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our planet is facing enormous challenges right now: climate change, poverty, and food and water security, to mention a few. All of them seem impossible to tackle, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.

Right now, people all over the world are making a difference in big and small ways. Every effort adds up. As the Danish journalist Jacob Riis reminds us, a stonecutter never splits the rock on the first blow. But if he hammers away long enough, it will eventually give.

Want to take some direct action to help lab animals today? Please sign and share the petition asking Congress to support and co-sponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act.

Sign Petition: Ban Animal Testing for Cosmetics Now!

If you want to make a difference on an issue you find deeply troubling, you too can create a Care2 petition, and use this handy guide to get started. You’ll find Care2’s vibrant community of activists ready to step up and help you.

Sign Petition: This Country’s Poised to Ban Animal Testing for Cosmetics

thepetitionsite.com

Animal advocates are applauding lawmakers in Canada for bringing the country closer to embracing cruelty-free beauty by moving forward with legislation that would ban animal testing for cosmetics.

The Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act (S-214) will amend the Food and Drugs Act to make it illegal to test cosmetics products or their ingredients on animals in Canada, and it will ban the sale of beauty products that have been newly tested on animals elsewhere in the world.

It was first introduced in 2015 by Sen. Carolyn Stewart Olsen, but didn’t pass the Senate until last summer. Now, it’s supporters are celebrating more progress with its introduction in House of Commons by Conservative Shadow Minister for Health, Marilyn Gladu.

If it’s passed, Canada will become the 40th country in the world to ban animal testing for cosmetics.

Not only will doing so protect animals in labs from cruel, unnecessary, wasteful and outdated tests for personal care products and cosmetics, it will help keep Canada competitive in a global marketplace where more and more doors are closing to products that were tested on animals.

Around the world, dozens of countries have already banned this practice, while hundreds of companies have proven that they can make quality products without causing harm.

With valid alternatives and thousands of ingredients that have already been proven safe, there’s no longer any reason to continue torturing animals for nothing more than our vanity.

Please sign and share this petition urging Canadian MPs to pass this historic piece of legislation before the next election.

China Approves New Non-Animal Cosmetics Tests After PETA Push

https://features.peta.org/cruelty-free-company-search/index.aspxpeta.org
Published April 3, 2019 by . Last Updated April 4, 2019.

After years of pushing from PETA, the Chinese government has approved two more non-animal methods for testing cosmetics products in China.

The two newly approved tests, the direct peptide reaction assay for skin sensitization and the short time exposure assay for eye irritation, will spare countless animals the agony of having substances dripped into their eyes and rubbed onto their skin.

This major progress is thanks to the groundbreaking work of the expert scientists and regulatory specialists at the Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS), with whom PETA provided initial funding to train Chinese scientists and educate officials in modern non-animal methods.
No animal should be poisoned or blinded for a consumer product—or any other reason.

In 2012, PETA exposed the fact that some formerly cruelty-free companies had quietly started paying the Chinese government to test their products on animals in order to sell them in that country. At the time, animal tests were required for any cosmetics sold in China. PETA immediately contacted the leading experts in the field of non-animal test methods at IIVS and provided them with the initial grant to launch their work in China.

IIVS scientists successfully worked with Chinese officials to approve the first non-animal test method, the 3T3 neutral red uptake phototoxicity assay, which is used to test cosmetics for their potential toxicity when they come into contact with sunlight.

Institute for In Vitro Sciences, China

In 2014, the Chinese government announced that it would accept the results from non-animal test methods but only for non–special use cosmetics manufactured in China. Tests on animals are still required for all imported cosmetics and all special-use cosmetics, regardless of where they were manufactured.
Support Companies that Never Test on Animals

By purchasing only cruelty-free products, you can spare sensitive rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, and other animals from excruciating tests, a lifetime of suffering, and death. Need help finding out which products are cruelty-free? We’ve got you covered: PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies database currently lists more than 3,800 compassionate companies that don’t test on animals anywhere in the world.

Success! Cruel Beagle Fungicide Test Ends at Corteva Agriscience | Care2 Causes

care2.com

Less than a week after the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) released the disturbing report that 36 beagles were being force-fed a fungicide in a test commissioned by Coreteva Agriscience, a division of Dow DuPont, the company announced it will end this terrible study.

An undercover HSUS investigator at Charles River Laboratories in Michigan discovered that the beagles were being fed Adavelt, a new Coreteva Agriscience fungicide, in gelatin capsules for a year. According to the report released March 12, some of these dogs “were being subjected to very high doses – so high that up to four capsules had to be shoved down their throats.”

All the surviving beagles were scheduled to be euthanized in July. Their organs would then be removed and examined for any damage from the fungicide.

This study is horrible for many reasons. For one thing, it does not replicate how Adavelt would be ingested by humans. Even worse, the United States government hasn’t even required this test for over 10 years, ever since scientists realized it provides no worthwhile information.

Corteva Agriscience said it had to conduct the test—which it admitted was unnecessary—to meet a Brazilian regulatory requirement. However, Brazil’s pesticide authority, ANVISA, told the HSUS it will waive the test for companies that don’t want to conduct it.

At Corteva Agriscience’s request, ANVISA sent a formal, written version of this policy to the entire Brazilian pesticide industry. But Conteva Agriculture refused to stop the test until the industry received confirmation that it was no longer required. If that confirmation took longer than four months, those beagles would die in July.

The HSUS and Humane Society International (HSI) have been working for months to make Corteva Agriscience end its cruel fungicide test and release the beagles, so they can find loving homes. More than 122,000 people signed HSUS’ petition on Care2 making this demand.

On March 18, just six days after the HSUS released its report, Corteva Agriscience announced it had secured a waiver from ANVISA and had immediately ended the test. The company promised it would make “every effort” to rehome the beagles.

We’ve been working to refine, reduce, & replace animal tests for years. Today we’re pleased to announce our efforts resulted in a waiver & we can stop the study. We’ll make every effort to rehome the animals. Please read our full statement. pic.twitter.com/SQc5RJg41M

— Corteva Agriscience™ (@corteva) March 18, 2019

“We applaud Corteva for making the right decision,” Kitty Block, HSUS president and CEO, wrote on her blog. “The company has been a valuable partner to us in the past on important measures to decrease animal testing and we hope that we can work with them on a happy ending for these dogs.”

The surviving beagles owe their lives to the efforts of the HSUS and HSI, as well as everyone around the world who urged Corteva Agriscience to stop the test. Here’s hoping the HSUS is successful again in finding loving homes for every one of these survivors.

Creating a Care2 petition is easy. If you have an issue you care deeply about, why not start your own petition? Here are some guidelines to help you get started, and soon the Care2 community will be signing up to support you.

Breaking! Procter & Gamble Partners With HSI To End Animal Testing For Cosmetics In All Global Beauty Markets By 2023 – World Animal News

By WAN –
February 21, 2019

Today, Procter & Gamble joins the Humane Society International #BeCrueltyFree Campaign, to ban animal testing for cosmetics in all major global beauty markets by 2023.
“We are pleased to partner with the Humane Society International in the quest to end cosmetic animal testing. I’m proud of the passion and expertise our researchers have contributed already to this goal,” Kathy Fish, Chief Research, Development and Innovation Officer of Procter & Gamble said in a statement. “I know they will continue to be a force for good, providing leadership and advocacy to help achieve our shared vision.”
The company also noted that it has “invested more than $420 million over forty years in developing non-animal testing methods.”
The #BeCrueltyFree campaign was launched in 2012 with the aim of extending the European Union’s legal precedent – banning cosmetic animal testing and the sale of newly animal tested cosmetics – to countries where this practice is still allowed or even mandated by law.
P&G’s support for #BeCrueltyFree will include joint education and capacity-building programs for non-animal alternatives, continued development of new animal-free approaches to safety assessment, and advocating for the legislative end of cosmetic animal testing in key global beauty markets.
For over two decades, P&G, HSI, HSUS, and the Humane Society Legislative Fund have collaborated on the development and regulatory uptake of animal-free testing methods. The organizations expect that by bringing their complementary strengths together, they will reach the end goal more quickly. A key focus will be gaining acceptance of new methods by regulators and enrolling many companies and governments globally to adopt cruelty-free public policies and practices.
Dr. Harald Schlatter, P&G Corporate Communications and Animal Welfare Advocacy added: “We’ve invested more than $420 million over forty years in developing non-animal testing methods. Our researchers have led or co-designed at least twenty-five cruelty-free methods that have replaced animal testing of cosmetic products. HSI and the HSUS have been powerful partners in advancing these methods globally.“
“Animal testing of cosmetics not only causes unnecessary animal suffering, but it also represents outdated science. For more than 20 years, we have collaborated with Procter & Gamble to advance the development and regulatory acceptance of non-animal testing approaches, but in order to finally move proposed cosmetics animal testing bans into law in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Chile, South Africa and other influential markets, we need the active support of major industry leaders such as P&G.,” stated Troy Seidle, HSI Vice President for Research & Toxicology. “With the power of P&G’s household brands, I’m confident we can achieve a legislative end to cosmetic animal testing globally within five years.”
P&G’s brands include: Always, Bounty, Charmin, Crest, Dawn, Downy, Febreze, Gain, Gillette, Head & Shoulders, Olay, Oral-B, Pampers, Pantene, Tide, Vicks, and more.
Each move to ban animal testing for cosmetics is an important step forward to ending the cruel and unnecessary practice, everywhere!
In 2018, Social Compassion In Legislation and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine co-sponsored Senate Bill 1249, the California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, with the support of Peace 4 Animals and World Animal News.
The historic legislation signed into law last October will make it unlawful for cosmetic manufacturers to sell any cosmetic in California if the final product or any component of the product was tested on animals after January 1, 2020, with some exceptions for regulatory requirements.

Progress Is Being Made; India Is Establishing Their First Government Centre On Alternatives To Animal Testing In Biomedical Research – World Animal News

By Karen Lane –
January 23, 2019

In a historic move to advance human medical progress and move away from reliance on monkeys, dogs and other animals as testing models for human diseases, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), under the aegis of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, has announced its plans to establish a new “ICMR Centre of Excellence in Human Pathway-Based Biomedicine and Risk Assessment” in Hyderabad.
ICMR’s announcement comes on the heels of meetings with Humane Society International and People for Animals, which have urged Indian science funding bodies to ramp up their investment in leading technologies such as human organs-on-a-chip and next-generation computer modeling techniques, which are essential for advancing public health and economic growth alongside the United States, Europe, China, and other global innovation leaders.
HSI/India Deputy Director Alokparna Sengupta said in a statement, “We are grateful to ICMR for thinking outside the cage and heeding our call to establish this urgently needed centre for advancement of human-specific approaches for medical research and product safety testing. More and more scientists are questioning the relevance and utility of animal-based research and testing, while foreign funding agencies are investing heavily in cutting-edge non-animal technologies. This new ICMR centre, if properly resourced, has the potential to make India a key global player in 21st century medical research. We look forward to continued collaboration with ICMR to make this vision a reality.”
In parallel, ICMR has coordinated the drafting of an “Indian Roadmap on Alternatives to Animals in Research” with inputs from eminent Indian scientists and experts in the area, including representatives of HSI/India. It is expected that this white paper document will serve as a foundation for developing future research funding calls by ICMR, which will ultimately drive the science agenda at the new human-focused Centre of Excellence in Hyderabad.
Humane Society International is a founding member of the Biomedical Research for the 21st Century (BioMed21) collaboration, a diverse, international group of stakeholders who share a vision of a new, human-focused paradigm in medical research. The collaboration is currently advertising an open funding call aimed exclusively at Indian health scientists, to support the development and open-access publication of targeted review articles in key public health areas such as cancer, diabetes (type II), cardiovascular diseases and tuberculosis.

FREE Materials to End Dissection | peta2
Posted by Emily

There’s no such thing as humane classroom dissection—because animals, dead or alive, are never ours to use. They can’t consent to donating their bodies to “science,” and certainly, none of them would be willingly drowned, poisoned, or forced to endure any other kind of horrific and painful death for your classroom activity.

Classroom dissection is an industry, which exists for one thing: money. 💰 That means that the well-being of the animals exploited by it isn’t even a consideration. So, no, workers don’t spend countless hours searching parks and creeks to collect 10 million dead animals each year. If your teachers told you that the animals used for dissection died from natural causes, they’re either misinformed or lying. It’s time for students to rise up and demand better.👊

Cruel dissection-specimen supply companies exist because schools order dead animals for students to cut into. When enough students know the truth and refuse to dissect animals, this cruelty will end—supply can’t persist without demand. Ready to take a stand against animal dissection? Order these free materials. You’ll receive 15 dissection leaflets and a sheet of our new stickers!

Johns Hopkins Confines Owls to a Basement Laboratory: Take Action Now!

Johns Hopkins Confines Owls to a Basement Laboratory: Take Action Now!
3-4 minutes

Since 2017, Johns Hopkins University experimenter Shreesh Mysore has received more than $800,000 in tax-funded grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study how groups of neurons or nerve cells work together to carry out different functions—not in humans but in barn owls.

barn owl

Mysore cuts into the owls’ skulls, inserts electrodes into their brains, restrains the birds in an “experimental rig,” and then records their neural activity while having them watch dots on a TV monitor or exposing them to bursts of noise through earphones. For some experiments, he’s restrained fully conscious owls for up to 12 hours while recording and poking at neurons in their brains. He admits in a paper that “some birds were calm when restrained, while others were not.”

In another published paper, Mysore describes how he put the owls in a restraining tube so that they would be prone—an unnatural position for them—and then screwed the bolts connected to their skulls into a “stereotaxic device” so that they couldn’t move their heads.

A news release from the university now claims—without evidence or rationale—that understanding neural activity in barn owls could pave the way to developing therapies for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in humans. Say what?

Looking at the neural responses of trapped barn owls—whose skulls were cut open—to dots on a screen or noises blasted through earphones offers no insight into human ADHD. Even if it did, it’s too cruel to be allowed.

In addition to its transparent cruelty, the use of animals in experimentation has proved an unqualified failure. The evidence is overwhelming that data from experiments on animals can’t be reliably applied to humans. NIH itself acknowledges that 95 percent of drugs that test safe and effective in animals fail in humans because they don’t work or are dangerous. And a review in the prestigious medical journal The BMJ reported that more than 90 percent of “the most promising findings from animal research” fail to lead to human treatments.

Yet each year, NIH directs more than $15 billion of taxpayer money to animal experiments. Johns Hopkins is at the front of the line to ride the government gravy train, securing hundreds of millions of dollars for experiments on animals annually.

Please urge NIH not to squander taxpayer dollars on Mysore’s cruel and worthless experiments on owls and instead to redirect funds to modern, superior, non-animal research methods.

Breaking! World’s 2nd Largest Beauty Brand, Unilever, Announces Unprecedented Move To Help Support Global Ban On Animal Testing For Cosmetics – World Animal News

By Lauren Lewis –
October 9, 2018

Prominent beauty brand, Unilever, announced its support today for a global ban on animal testing for cosmetics as part of an ambitious new collaboration with the Humane Society International (HSI).
Known for such popular brands as Dove, Degree, and TRESemmé, Unilever is the second largest beauty company globally and the first among the sector’s “top 10” to actively support legislative reform to prohibit animal testing for cosmetics. The organizations hope that this new collaboration will accelerate policy change in the cosmetics sector globally toward a shared goal of animal testing bans in 50 major beauty markets worldwide by 2023.
The unprecedented move is being hailed as the “beginning of the end for cruel cosmetics.”
“Animal testing for cosmetics has been banned in the EU since 2013, and we hope that an adoption of similar bans in other countries will accelerate the regulatory acceptance of alternative approaches and thereby remove any requirements for any animal testing for cosmetics anywhere in the world,” David Blanchard, Chief Research and Development Officer at Unilever, explained in a statement.
Unilever announced its support for Humane Society International’s #BeCrueltyFree campaign which is aimed at banning animal testing for cosmetics across the globe within five years. Unilever’s support includes an ambitious new collaboration aimed at accelerating regulatory acceptance of modern, non-animal approaches to consumer safety assessment.
“Every company will tell you it supports alternatives to animal testing for cosmetics, but Unilever is the first of the beauty giants to throw its weight behind banning it altogether,” HSI Vice President for Research and Toxicology Troy Seidle said in a statement. “With hundreds of thousands of animals still used in toxicity tests for cosmetic purposes each year around the world, Unilever is to be commended for standing with Humane Society International to end this cruelty once and for all. We urge other large beauty brands to follow this example and join us on the right side of history.”
As a further demonstration of its commitment, Unilever also announced today that Dove, its largest Beauty and Personal Care brand, has gained accreditation by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Dove’s cruelty-free status has been granted in recognition of the brand’s commitment to not conduct any tests on animals anywhere in the world. PETA’s cruelty-free logo will begin to appear on Dove packaging from January 2019 to assure customers that Dove does not, and will not, test on animals.
PETA will also now list Unilever as a ‘company working for regulatory change’, which indicates that Unilever conducts no tests on animals unless specifically required by law for any of its brands or products.
Across the globe, lawmakers in 37 countries so far have already enacted legislation to fully or partially ban animal testing for cosmetics. HSI played a key role in securing enactment of the final phase of the EU ban in 2013, and in subsequent victories in India, Taiwan, New Zealand, South Korea, Guatemala, and seven states in Brazil. Today HSI and its partners are driving forward 10 more legislative efforts in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Mexico, the Philippines, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and the United States.
Animal tests carried out in the cosmetics sector include eye and skin irritation experiments, in which a cosmetic product or ingredient is rubbed onto the shaved skin or dripped into the eyes of rabbits; skin allergy tests using guinea pigs or mice; and force-feeding studies that last weeks or months. These tests inflict considerable pain and distress, which can include blindness, swollen eyes, sore bleeding skin, internal bleeding, organ damage, convulsions and death. Pain relief is seldom if ever provided, and at the end of a test the animals are killed, normally by asphyxiation, neck-breaking or decapitation.

Artificial Intelligence may Replace Testing of Live Animals – FIREPAW, Inc.

Great news coming out of the scientific – based tech world today: The use of laboratory animals to test drug safety may be replaced by computer models and artificial intelligence(Al). It turns out that Al results can be even more accurate and reliable then real animal tests. We may finally be getting ready to turn the corner on the use of live animal testing.

Al May soon save a ton of animals from drug testing…

Petition: Baystate Medical Center, Stop Using Animals for Medical Trainings

by: Care2 Team
recipient: Baystate Medical Center

21,826 SUPPORTERS – 25,000 GOAL
You wouldn’t want a doctor who had been trained using the antiquated methods of the past, would you? Well then, you may want to avoid the medical professionals participating in the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) program at Baystate Medical Center in Massachusetts.

They are one of only two ATLS training centers in the whole of Canada and the United States that still use animals like pigs to simulate human trauma. The trend has been going out of style for decades, but Baystate has yet to get with the times. They refuse to use more modern methods that are as good or even better than the archaic ways that involved hurting innocent animals.

For one thing, pigs and human bodies are not the same, meaning using a pig for the ATLS program doesn’t equip our medical professionals with the best tools available. In 2001, the American College of Surgeons gave the green light to a new technology that would replace the need to use animals — “an anatomical human body simulator, which features lifelike skin, subcutaneous fat, and muscle” known as the TraumaMan System. TraumaMan is so lifelike and realistic that most centers that offer ATLS programs have opted to use them or similar systems.

Most, but not all. Instead of leading the pack, Baystate seems to be content with lagging behind almost every other center when it comes to using modern cruelty-free tools to teach their students. They seem to disregard the fact that 99 percent of 300 centers surveyed within the U.S. and Canada have found that they don’t need to use animals for trainings.

Please sign the petition and tell Baystate to join the 21st century. Ask them to stop using animals in their ATLS program.

Urgent Calls Needed Now Through August 7th To Help Turn The CA Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act Into Law! – World Animal News

By Judie Mancuso –
July 26, 2018

Call To Action Needed By End Of Day On Tuesday August 7th.
SB 1249 (Galgiani) CA Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Act
HEARING DATE AUGUST 8TH – ASSEMBLY APPROPRIATIONS
Need Calls, Tweets and Attendance!
The opposition (lead by PCPC, Johnson & Johnson, Proctor & Gamble, Estee Lauder) to SB 1249 has “lobbied up.” As one of their lobbyist told us, the big corporations “do not want to be told what to do.” They just want to keep going along – same ole, same ole, needlessly allowing the torturing and killing of over 500,000 animals per year.
They have hired over four lobbying firms in just a few weeks to oppose SB 1249. Their ramped-up efforts will not deter us from our goal to end the cruelty of cosmetic animal testing. SB 1249 is a paramount bill, and we are determined to see it signed into law.
Below is a list of “Myth vs Facts” regarding the opposition’s talking points.
SB 1249 is good for people, business, and the animals!
We need you to do 4 things to help us NOW!

Make California’s Cosmetic Market Cruelty-Free by Supporting SB 1249! Animal testing is antiquated, unreliable, and not necessary for safe cosmetics! Stop the torture! Tell @LorenaSGonzalez and @FrankBigelowCA that you want #Crueltyfree #Cosmetics and #YesOnSB1249!
3) Attend the hearing on Wednesday, August 8th at 9am, State Capitol, Room 4202.
4) Share this email, post, etc. and get others involved

MYTHS vs FACTS ABOUT SB 1249
MYTH #1 – SB 1249 will take away my favorite shampoo because it was tested on animals.
False! – Because we are aiming for a cruelty-free cosmetics market in the future, the bill only affects products tested on animals after 2020 or, to meet international requirements, after 2023. All products and ingredients tested on animals before the bill takes effect can still be sold. If a product is found to have been tested on animals after 2020 (or 2023 for testing conducted to meet international requirements) and it is not covered by one of the listed exemptions in the bill, the manufacturer will be fined until it is removed from the market.
MYTH #2 – SB 1249 will impact medical testing and development of new therapies.
False! – NO. The bill disallows the sale or marketing of new cosmetics and cosmetic ingredients which are tested on animals. It has no jurisdiction over the development or testing of pharmaceuticals, which are governed by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines and requirements specific to those products. SB 1249 does not govern any medical testing taking place at universities, research institutes, or the National Institutes of Health. Just to be safe, the bill specifically exempts products or ingredients tested as a result of a requirement by the FDA or by California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control.
MYTH #3 – SB 1249 will pose an economic burden on California companies.
False! – California companies have access to worldwide markets in a number of different ways that do not require animal testing. Specifically regarding China, one of California’s largest cosmetic manufacturers, John Paul Mitchell Systems, a cruelty-free company from inception and one of California’s leading cosmetic manufacturer based in Santa Clarita, negotiated to sell their products in China using alternative testing. Other companies opt to open storefronts in Hong Kong or sell via the internet usingAlibaba.com, the world’s largest online retailer. SB 1249 will not lead to job loss. In fact, there is evidence that SB 1249 could
be a job creator. Alternative methods of testing, not only for cosmetics, but for other industries is a growing sector. SB 1249 will make California the epicenter of alternative testing in the United States.
MYTH #4 – A cosmetic manufacturer will be punished because an ingredient in their product is also used in a pharmaceutical product subject to animal testing.
False! – SB 1249 has 2 major exceptions which make this a false claim. Subdivision c(1) of SB 1249 creates an exemption for any cosmetic testing required by the Federal Drug Administration or California Department of Toxic Substance Control. Further, subsection c(3) allows for testing that is required by a state, federal, or foreign regulatory body so long as that testing is not for cosmetic purposes and the ingredient is already in use for cosmetics. Thus, testing required by a governmental authority for pharmaceuticals, drugs, pesticides, etc. will not punish cosmetic manufacturers.
MYTH #5 – This bill would ban the sale of a product if someone, somewhere in the world, unknown and unknowable to the manufacturer, tested it on an animal.
False! – That is patently false. SB 1249 creates a “knowingly” standard in subsection (a) of the law, which states, “…it is unlawful for a manufacturer to knowingly import for profit, sell at retail, or offer for sale or promotional purposes at retail in this state, any cosmetic if the final product or any component thereof was tested on animals for any purpose afterJanuary 1, 2020.” Thus, manufacturers are not liable when they had no knowledge of the animal testing that took place outside of their scope of influence. Further, the exceptions discussed above are another layer of protection for cosmetic manufacturers for testing done for non-cosmetic purposes even when all parties are aware of the testing.
Thank you for helping with our grassroots campaign. Please help us to continue to save animals. Please donate today, we need additional financial resources to get this done!

By Judie Mancuso –
June 15, 2018

SB 1249, the CA Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, is two steps away from the governor’s desk and becoming law in the fifth largest economy in the world.
Unfortunately, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, L’Oreal, Unilever, Avon, NARS Cosmetics, Revlon, M.A.C., and Mary Kay Cosmetics are among the companies that are opposing the passage of the law that will save hundreds of thousands of animals from needless torture and death every year.
The companies have hired an army of lobbyists that are currently meeting with every assembly member’s office and lying about what our bill does and what the effects of it will be.
Help Us Help These Poor Innocent Animals! Call Assembly Judiciary Committee Members Now Through June 25th To Let Them Know That Californians Do Not Want Their Cosmetic Products Tested On Animals No Matter Where In The World The Testing Takes Place!
The next Capitol hearing is set for June 26, 2018, at 9:00 am, Room 437. If possible, people are also encouraged to attend the hearing.
Help us NOW by calling each member of the committee urging their support and not to be persuaded by the opposition spin! Tell them to vote yes on SB 1249!

Victory! While Virginia Becomes The 4th U.S. State To Pass Anti-Animal Testing Legislation For Cosmetics; Help Us Ensure That California Is Next! – World Animal News

Victory! While Virginia Becomes The 4th U.S. State To Pass Anti-Animal Testing Legislation For Cosmetics; Help Us Ensure That California Is Next!By Lauren Lewis – May 28, 2018

WAN is thrilled that Virginia passed legislation to require that cosmetics and personal care product manufacturers or contract testing facilities use alternative methods to testing on animals.
Virginia became the fourth state in the country to enact this important legislation when Governor Ralph Northam signed HB 1087, which was introduced by Delegate Jennifer Boysko into law.
California, New Jersey, and New York also have such laws in place.
The California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act, SB 1249, was introduced in the California State Legislature by Senator Cathleen Galgiani earlier this year. This important bill would prohibit the sale of animal-tested cosmetics in the state, it is sponsored by Social Compassion in Legislation (SCIL) and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), and supported by Cruelty Free International and Lush Cosmetics.

This ground-breaking legislation would make it unlawful for any cosmetic manufacturer to knowingly import or sell any cosmetic, including personal hygiene products such as deodorant, shampoo, or conditioner, in the state of California if the final product or any component of the product was tested on animals after Jan. 1, 2020. A violation would result in a fine of up to $500 for the first violation and up to $1,000 for each subsequent violation.
WAN and Peace 4 Animals have joined forces with our partner Social Compassion In Legislation, one of the main sponsors of the bill, to help push this important legislation forward and make it the first law of its kind for cruelty-free cosmetics in the state of California.
Twenty-first-century science is rapidly moving away from outdated animal tests and these new cruelty-free cosmetics laws being proposed requires the use of available methods that avoid animal testing or reduce the number of animals used for the testing of products.
Many effective alternatives to animal testing now exist, including 3-D printing, construction of artificial human tissue, and the generation of sophisticated computer programs that can make accurate predictions about chemical safety.
With these sophisticated technologies comes improved and more predictive information on the safety of chemicals and other products.
The new law in Virginia does not apply to testing done for medical research, including testing of drugs or medical devices, nor does it prohibit the use of animal tests to comply with requirements of state or federal agencies.
The new legislation authorizes the Attorney General to bring a civil action to enforce such provision. Any person who violates the law may be subject to a civil penalty of up to $5,000, as well as court costs and attorneys fees.

Petition: Hundreds of Kittens Have Been Killed for Experiments Funded With Taxpayer Money

Hundreds of Kittens Have Been Killed for Experiments Funded With Taxpayer Money

by: Care2 Team
target: USDA

24,881 SUPPORTERS – 25,000 GOAL

One hundred dead kittens a year.

That’s the price we are paying for a taxpayer-funded experiment that feeds kittens infected meats and then monitors their response. The kittens barely get a chance at life, as the experiment uses cats that are less than three months old.

According to a recent exposé, the majority of the kittens are perfectly healthy, even after being forced to eat spoiled meat. After they are no longer “useful,” lab workers kill them and burn their bodies.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has tried to defend themselves by saying the number of kittens reportedly killed in the tests has been overestimated. But, even if one kitten dies, it is too many. There is something very wrong when the U.S. government is trying to infect poor helpless animals, and then, if by some miracle they survive, they are killed anyway.

The lab conducting the cruel tests is located in Maryland, a state, which just last month, passed the “Beagle Freedom Bill.” The law that requires all labs to work with willing animal rescue organizations to find homes for pets once they are no longer needed. The bill also protects cats.

However, the Beagle Freedom Bill may take time to go into effect and these hundreds of kittens need our help today. That’s why Care2 is calling on the USDA lab in Beltsville, Maryland to immediately stop euthanizing their kittens and instead rehome them.

Please help us find these kittens a new home. Sign the petition and demand the USDA stop killing these kittens.

Victory! Hundreds of Animals Saved as Japan Ends Poisoning Test on Dogs

Victory! Hundreds of Animals Saved as Japan Ends Poisoning Test on Dogs
Jessica Sandler
Written by | April 18, 2018

After hearing from PETA scientists for the past three years, the Japanese government officially announced this week that it is saying “sayonara” to a gruesome pesticide test conducted on dogs.

Imagine being locked in a cage and forced to eat pesticide-laced food or breathe pesticide fumes for a year until you are killed and your body is dissected. That is exactly what dogs undergo in a common test. But now, after receiving documentation from PETA scientists of extensive analyses conducted by experts demonstrating that data from the one-year dog poisoning test are not used to protect humans, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has decided to stop requiring the use of this test.

With the assistance of the Japan Anti-Vivisection Association, our scientists pointed out that numerous governments, including those of the European Union, the U.S., and Canada, have eliminated this test from their pesticide registration requirements after discussions with PETA, sparing thousands of dogs annually. Japan now joins the growing list of countries that have made the right decision for dogs and for science.

PETA scientists are also in contact with regulatory agencies in other parts of the world to encourage them to follow suit and are working to end all pesticide testing on dogs and all other animals. Your help will bring us closer to a world in which all animals are regarded as individuals, not laboratory tools, and in which we’ll look back on chemical tests on living, breathing beings as part of a painful, dark past.
