Urgent POLL About Animal Experiments - PLEASE TAKE THE POLL !

Animals  (tags: White coat waste projcect, animal experiments, poll, taxpayer money, Victory Over Vivisection, animalcruelty, abuse, suffering )

- 1826 days ago -
Every year the federal government spends over $12 billion of your tax dollars on painful, wasteful, and ineffective animal experiments. We need your feedback to help us expose and defeat the government's unprecedented attack on animals and taxpayers.


We hate spam. We do not sell or share the email addresses you provide.

" As we prepare to fight this atrocity in 2014, the stakes couldn't be any higher. That's why we've created a special "Victory Over Vivisection" survey for our closest supporters. Obviously, we'll fight on your behalf wherever animals are threatened, but with limited resources available this year, priorities are necessary. So we need your feedback to help us expose and defeat the government's unprecedented attack on animals and taxpayers."

I'd like to also say sorry for the horrific pic-it cost me lots of courage to look at let alone snap it and post it, yet I think it'll "do the job" for all to participate in the poll. Here's what they wrote along with this action:

Once we have your completed survey we will use the overall results as a road map to:

>>> Confront the big government, taxpayer-funded animal experimentation lobby with aggressive TV, print, and radio advertisements that hold the animal abusers accountable.

>>> Enact an all-out media blitz to show taxpayers how their money is being wasted on painful, wasteful, and ineffective experiments on animals.

>>> Develop a state of the art digital campaign that will persuade and activate a new generation of taxpayers to rally politicians and bureaucrats against forced taxpayer-funded animal experimentation.

Ty for posting ...Poll completed.

"... I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery, that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil." — Charles Mayo (founder of the Mayo Clinic)

“I abhor vivisection with my whole soul. All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence.” —Mohandas K. Gandhi

“Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character.” — George Bernard Shaw

"Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories and are called medical research." —George Bernard Shaw

It's so sad to be locked up in a small cage, deprived of all control over your own life... only pain and misery in life. All this hellish laboratories must be closed! There are relevant non-animal studies, instead of useless experiments that harm and kill animals.

Thank you so much Angelika and Henriette for the forward. Poll taken!

P.s. Many of us find it difficult to say NO when asked to donate to a charity seeking a cure for a disease. But how many of us take the time to find out would our donation money actually contribute to suffering?

The immense SHAME of continuing to experiment on animals has to come to it's logical conclusion== END!!!!!!! The US should LEAD the way & show the world by example. Animal experimentation is antiquated, severely cruel & unnecessary. False findings happen & can prove dangerous to human application. There is PURE EVIL involving vivisection & poor innocent animal souls, locked away behind closed lab doors. I want my tax $$ to used wisely, with ALTERNATIVE, Preferred science!!!! Gladly Signed, Shared & really pray to live to see the day, when animal testing is obliterated from the entire world!!!~

Animal studies teach us nothing about the health of humans because animals of different species absorb, metabolize, and eliminate substances differently than humans do. The truth is that testing on animals is bad science: It is unreliable and causes unnecessary barbaric suffering to the poor animals.In the US and Europe, animal tests for cosmetics or household products are not specifically required by law. To market a product a company must demonstrate its safety, but this can be done by using approved non-animal tests and combinations of existing ingredients that have already been established as safe for human use.It has been estimated that there are over 10,000 ingredients already proven safe for use. More and more ‘cruelty-free’ companies are saying no to animal testing and still produce safe, effective and high quality beauty and cleaning products. Use products with the Leaping Bunny mark as it is the ONLY logo which offers the assurance that a company complies with the rigorous HCS and HHPS Standards,demonstrating that its products and ingredients are not tested on animals at any stage of bringing the product to market. Many companies continue to use bunnies or similar ‘natural’ icons to imply they have a policy on animal testing,the mere appearance of a rabbit on a bottle offers no assurance of a company's actual policies or practices — unless, of course, it's the Leaping Bunny!

A large oercentage of the experiments are totally unnecessary - just a prolonged search for what the scientists etc ALREADY KNOW !!! I could "ramble on" for hours about this ....... but it would be poinless as it has all been said before ....... if only the perpetrators of these vile acts could take my lead ; and just STOP !!!!!!

Thank You for this, I'd like to find a way to use this picture on bill boards! Those needless animal experiments are done to prove that the Gov'ts money is going to good use, other wise the funding cuts off where ever the scientists stop experimenting. Completely out of close contact between the Gov't and the scientists. What a numb world we live in. I believe a large part of a solution lies in Making People Aware-some "Here We Are" advertisements. Maybe naive, but what do scientists experiment on for Cancer Research, Leukemia, depression etc...(mega-list)??Many people don't take very much responsibility for their own contribution toward their own OBESITY,HEART DISEASE, DIABETES,LUNG CANCER(SMOKING), AND MANY OTHER SERIOUS AILMENTS. Many people are in great need of walking and carrying bags (even in a pull cart-small pull carts that carry 4 or 5 full bags), if weather doesn't allow, take the bus, so at least you are outside and moving part of the time. Once you get used to it, its good, and the ego reduces its size all at the same time LOL! Just a happier way of thinking. Stop relying on vehicles for EVERYTHING!
