Buzz Petition

Living a cruelty-free lifestyle goes far beyond just food and drink choices. In addition to being used for food, clothing, and entertainment, animals are used in experiments for both medical testing and cosmetic testing.

petition on Care2 written by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) says that thirty countries, including Switzerland, Norway, India, Israel, and the entire European Union, have already banned animal testing for cosmetics, and HSUS wants the United States to join them. The petition explains that animals, particularly small rodents like rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, and mice, are habitually blinded, poisoned, and killed during cruel tests for cosmetic products like makeup, toiletries, and fragrances. There are many alternatives that are not only safer but less expensive too.

The petition states that Representatives from California, Arizona, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia have sponsored The Humane Cosmetics Act, which would ban all cosmetic testing manufactured or sold in the U.S. If you hate to see animals suffer, please take a moment to sign the petition in support of this proposed legislation.

With all the safe alternatives available, there is no reason why animals should continue to suffer for these tests. With the growing public demand for cruelty-free products, many brands have opted out of animal testing.  You can learn more about some of these brands here.

Please share this with your friends and family to help gain public support for the cause!

I agree it should stop. Animals don\'t look good with make up anyway. A rabbit with lip stick.

Just to clarify--rabbits are not rodents. They are lagomorphs.
