Her eyes were fine. Then they became itchy and swollen. A few days later, she went blind.
I'll spare you the rest of the gruesome details, but this is what happens every year to thousands of young rabbits. Rabbits taken from their mothers, shipped off in cages to testing facilities where harmful chemicals are injected into their eyes.
Why? To be used in the Draize eye test, which is often performed on new drugs and cosmetics ingredients.
PCRM is working to convince the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to replace the Draize test with nonanimal testing methods—and we need your help.
Please add your name to our petition to the FDA and stand up for all the rabbits out there who are being used in this terrible test. Ensure no more animals have to undergo ulceration, hemorrhaging, and even blindness from this unnecessary, painful experiment.
From all the rabbits needlessly suffering from the Draize test, thank you for speaking out on their behalf. Together, we can save them from a life of misery. Tell the FDA to Stop Testing on Animals
