Animal Testing Weekly

Last week, we launched a new campaign to end the use of animals in training courses at the University of North Carolina (UNC). The school is using live pigs to train emergency medicine residents, when the majority of other programs use human-relevant methods.

Please join us by taking action today! Simply call the School of Medicine dean William L. Roper, M.D., M.P.H., at 919-966-4161. Ask Dr. Roper to end the use of live animals for training emergency medicine residents.

After you call, please send an e-mail to Dr. Roper and Emergency Medicine chair Jane Brice, M.D., M.P.H.

As you know, in June, the Physicians Committee was successful in ending the use of animals for medical student training nationwide. But many advanced medical training programs—like UNC’s—continue to use animals even though human-relevant methods are available. With your help, we'll succeed here too!

"It's time to whip out some seriously big scissors before raiding taxpayers' wallets and proverbially setting our hard-earned cash on fire yet again." — Julie Germany, White Coat Waste: STOP Taxpayer-Funded Animal Experiments
We've already exposed how the National Institutes of Health (NIH) wastes over $12 BILLION of your money every year to experiment on animals.

... But now it's even WORSE than we thought.

According to a new admission from the NIH itself, upwards of 87.5% of all taxpayer-funded animal experiments are a complete waste of taxpayer dollars.

Dr. Michael Bracken, a professor of epidemiology at Yale University, stated, "Waste is more than just a waste of money and resources... It can actually be harmful to people's health."

After we exposed this new round of government abuse to the media, we told the Daily Caller "Congress needs to take a serious look at exactly what NIH is spending its money on."

That's precisely what our campaign is all about. We're the clean-up crew.

On your behalf, we're driving this issue and holding big spending politicians accountable for their abuse.

But there's so much more government waste we could expose... and that's why I'm writing you today.

To sustain our momentum, The Greenbaum Foundation will double every donation received before MIDNIGHT on August 31st. Our goal? To raise a $400,000 war chest to STOP taxpayer-funded animal experiments.

It's true... these latest findings confirm what you already suspected: taxpayer-funded animal experiments are wasteful... and wrong. But being on the right side of the issue isn't good enough.

Now we're ready to launch even more investigations, advertising, and innovative legislation to STOP taxpayer-funded animal experiments in Washington. But we can't do it alone.

So please follow this link to DOUBLE your donation and help us raise $400,000 before the deadline.

Together we can STOP taxpayer-funded animal experiments. 
Help End Animal Testing by Supporting the Humane Cosmetics Act

Your family's day-to-day may not be as animal-friendly as you think. Fortunately, there is something you can do to change that.
Each day, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, and rats are regularly being blinded, poisoned, and killed for the sake of lipstick, mascara, cologne, and other cosmetic products.
More than 30 countries — including Norway, Israel, India and every country in the European Union — have already phased out this cruel, antiquated practice. Now it's time for the US to do the same.
Congress will have a full plate when it returns from its summer break in a few weeks, but your message today can help break through the noise on Capitol Hill to ensure that this bipartisan legislation for animals becomes law.
