It is well past time for legislation like this to be passed! I recommend calling your Senators and Representatives asking them to support and sponsor this legislation. You can reach your congressional folks at: (202) 224-3121 Then ask for your specific people. You could also ask that a limited number of years of use (abuse!) and or number of experiments be permitted and then mandatory retirement should ensue.

Until we can get this abomination stopped entirely, we need to show strong support for this legislation!!!

They should never be in a lab to start with.......I am more concerned with stopping animal testing and then there would never be a need for such a bill..........What freaken torture to these poor innocent animals that never get to have the life they were intended to have......by the time they retire them, the animals are already so messed up from all the darn testing and drugs!!!!
Noted........

I absolutely agree, Charles, yet that is a step those bastards are not ready to take, so let's at least guarantee that the ones who've escaped already can never be returned to the torture chambers!!!!
